Are you hosting a Halloween party this year? If so, you’ll want to read this blog!
Well folks, it’s that time of year again! The nights are getting longer and the air is cool and crisp leaving us all in a little bit of a funk knowing that the cold weather is on its way. But with the cooler weather also comes one of the best days of the year, Halloween! Although Halloween is really a time for kids to dress up and go trick or treating, many adults like to take advantage of this day to host or attend Halloween costume parties. I mean really, what’s more fun than seeing your friends and family dressed up in costume? I love costume parties, especially the themed ones such as the worst 80’s costume or dress up as your favourite 1950’s movie star. Whatever the theme is, if you are hosting a party then you will need to feed your guests. So here are some ideas on how to use some of the great recipes from our website and give them a Halloween twist, simply by changing their names to something SPOOKY!
- Witchy Wings – using the Orange and Pecan Hot Wings recipe – these are great because they can be cooked in batches and kept warm in the oven.
- Ghostly Eyeballs – using the Creamy Swedish-style Meatballs recipe – this recipe is made using a crock pot. Keep a few shot glasses filled with toothpicks near the crock pot, that way your guests can plop some meatballs on a plate and use the toothpicks to eat them!
- Mummified Chicken – using the Salad Rolls recipe – if any of your guests are watching their waist lines, they will truly enjoy this healthy low-carb recipe.
- Monster Sludge – using the Hot Spinach & Chicken Dip (Slow Cooker) recipe - this dip can be served with raw vegetables of your choice, pita wedges, corn chips, sliced baguette and crackers. It’s really up to you!
These are just a few ideas but now that I’ve got your creative juices flowing, you may want to think up some spooky names for some of your favourite hors d’oeuvres. Have fun!
