Halloween party food

There is so much emphasis on Halloween candy and treats, but what about some real sustenance for the children before they head out for their sugar high?

I created this Halloween food buffet that’s fun for a costume party or pre trick-or-treat supper. Some recurring themes are mummy’s, witches, and monsters.

Have fun incorporating some of these Halloween themed food ideas for your Halloween party. And you can grab our FREE Halloween printable tags to help add pizzazz too.

This Halloween costume party has Halloween themed food ideas for the children. Feed the kids before trick-or-treating.

Party table decor

Set up a fun party table for the kids to help themselves to non sugary treats like mummy dogs, mini mummy pizzas, mummy mouths {recipes below}, and popcorn.

They can wash it all down with a simple green punch {green fruit juice + ginger ale} served in these science flasks.

Set the table with themed serving dishes and napkins wrapped with plastic vampire teeth for a whimsical touch.

PARTY TIP: Provide savory snacks, protein, and fruit for kids to snack on before loading up on all the Halloween candy.

Halloween themed food - monster mouths

These “monster mouths” look creepy but taste yummy! They also add a healthy boost from protein and fruit.

Monster Mouths

  • Green apples
  • Peanut butter
  • Peanuts

Cut the apple in half down the middle of the stem. Remove seeds and sit apple down on the flat side.

Carefully cut a “V” shape into the apple on the rounded side to create the “mouth”.

Spread the cut area with peanut butter and insert peanuts around the outside of the “mouth” to form “teeth.”

Halloween themed food - mummy pizzas

Mini mummy pizzas are the perfect size for little goblin hands!

Mini Mummy Pizzas

  • English Muffins
  • Pizza Sauce
  • White cheddar cheese slices
  • Sliced black olives

Cut English muffins in half and spread each side with pizza sauce. Cut strips of cheese using a pizza cutter or knife and begin placing on top of sauce in a criss cross and diagonal pattern.

Place two sliced olive pieces for eyes. Place on baking sheet and cook at 350 degrees until cheese is melted

Halloween themed food - mummy dogs

Another tried and true item for kids is hot dogs. Turn them into “mummy” dogs for Halloween!

Mummy Dogs

  • Hot dogs
  • Thin refrigerated pizza dough
  • Mustard or jar of capers

Start by rolling out the pizza crust on a flat surface. Use a pizza cutter and cut out thin strips of dough.

Begin wrapping the hot dog from the bottom or top making sure to leave some spaces open and to overlap some areas also. You may need two strips of dough per hot dog.

Place wrapped dogs on a baking sheet and bake at 400 degrees or according to pizza dough directions, for about 10-12 minutes or until dough is golden.

After removing the hot dogs from the oven, use a mustard squirt bottle or capers to make eyes for your mummy. Serve with extra ketchup or mustard if you like.

  2. Chris, that is exactly the kind of worry I have, focus on offering salt or crude food for the kids and adults, limiting at most sugar excess. Really nice to read your ideas and the mummy food looks so fun. Congratulations!

  3. I can’t get enough of the Halloween food ideas. I’ve seen the hot dog mummies before but I had forgotten how cute they are.
