Halloween Party Food Ideas

Mummy Pizzas

Mummy pizzas: Halloween Party FoodGhoulish mummy pizzas are quick and easy to make and taste nice. Use muffin halves as the base, layer on tomato sauce and use strips of cheese to make a bandage effect. Jalapeno peppers are great for the eyes but olives could also be used. These were a big hit with my son who loved the effective look.

Mummified Hot Dogs

Everyone love hot dogs, but how about mummified hot dogs? A simple variation on a sausage roll with the hot dog wrapped in shortcrust pastry, with a little space left for the face. Eyes can be added with ketchup or mustard after they have been baked for a more scary look. They taste nice and look effective as well.

They are actually very filling as well so perfect to eat after a hard night trick or treating. Serve them with a bowl of mustard on the side for dipping into and you have an ideal party snack.

For a sweet treat you could make some pumpkin pie. It is a great way to use up the pumpkin insides after you have carved your pumpkin.
