Quick and Easy Party Food Ideas

Spooky Spiders

  • Spread peanut butter or processed cheese spread onto round butter crackers.
  • Place four chow mien noodles or small pretzel sticks on each side of the cracker making eight spider legs.
  • Stack a cracker on top to make a sandwich.
  • Dip raisins into peanut butter or cheese spread and place on top as spider eyes. Peanut butter makes a great glue.

Bloody Bones

  • Make spareribs using your favorite barbecue sauce or purchase ready-made spareribs.
  • Arrange the ribs to resemble a human rib cage.
  • Place a half of a red pepper or a tomato in the middle as the heart and put a real knife or fake knife into the heart.

Bloody Brains

Any type of cooked spaghetti or spiral pasta with red sauce. Easy peasy!

Monster Hands

  • Place candy corn into each finger of a plastic deli glove.
  • Fill the glove (including fingers) with popcorn until plump and tie off at the wrist of the glove.

Yummy Eyeballs

  • Slice carrots, cucumbers, or radishes into bite-sized circles.
  • Put a dab of cream cheese on top.
  • Put 1/2 a pitted black or green olive on top.

Fingers and Dip

  • Peel and slice carrots lengthwise into finger size pieces.
  • Attach almond slices or plain potato chips pieces onto one end of the carrots with cream cheese as the fingernail.
  • Use the same idea using pretzel rods.
  • Supply your favorite dip.

Apple Bites

  • Core and slice an apple.
  • Spread peanut butter to one side of the apple slice.
  • Put three or four tiny marshmallows for teeth on top of the peanut butter.
  • Top with another apple slice, peanut butter side down.

Mummy Roll-Ups

  • Use a cooked hot dog, breaded chicken strips, or nuggets.
  • Place in a tortilla with ketchup and roll up burrito-style, leaving one end open.
  • Use ketchup to dot on the eyes of the mummy.

Food Faces

  • Create scary, silly, or jack-o-lantern faces using meat, cheese, and vegetable pieces on round foods such as pizzas, cheese crisps, quesadillas, or tostadas.
  • You can also use homemade pizzas or frozen cheese pizzas.
  • Use pepperoni and black olives as eyes, red pepper pieces to form noses, or diced onions to create teeth.
  • For cheese crisps, use black olives for eyes, shredded lettuce for a mouth, salsa or sour cream for noses or mouths.

Bagel Monsters

  • Slice bagel in half.
  • Spread on cream cheese
  • Fill with meat and use a piece of ham to make a tongue coming out of the center of the bagel hole.
  • Attach black olive or pepperoni eyes with cream cheese
  • Use lettuce leaves as hair and carrots as a nose.
