Halloween Treats and Party Food for the Whole Family
It's that time again. Sure as the autumn leaves will turn, you can count on swarms of fairy princesses, scary monsters and superheroes descending upon your door. How to keep their sacks full and their tummies happy? Candy, home-baked sweets and yes, even healthy snacks disguised as fun treats will delight the demanding cast of characters.
Delight them with spookily simple, wickedly good treats
Miniature candy bars and snack packs featuring a variety of candies are easy choices to offer the little ghouls who gather at your door. Pile them in colored mixing bowls or a cast-iron Dutch oven for a festive presentation or turn a witch's hat upside down and fill it with sweets. Think about baked chips, cheese and cracker packages or small packages of raisins as healthier yet tasty options.
If you're a kitchen wizard, you can create your own treats. Cut cookies and brownies into Halloween shapes such as pumpkins, ghosts and witches. Decorate with bright frosting in shades of neon orange, Frankenstein green and ghoulish black.
If you're hosting a party, it's fun to match treats with your Halloween decorations. Set pumpkin cupcakes on a platter and adorn the table with pumpkins and gourds. Creepy cobwebs that drape a fireplace or windows can inspire the design for a spider web cheesecake.
Feed your Halloween party crowd without the fright
If the thought of choosing the right foods for a Halloween party makes your hair stand on end, keep it simple and let Walmart help. Order one or two Walmart deli platters online to pick up at your local Walmart, along with a selection of beverages. Bake up a plate of brownies or a set out tray of caramel apples. These tasty treats will be sure to please the hungry hordes.
If you want to go a step further, serve foods that can be prepared in advance. Try making easy deviled eggs or cheesy baked nachos. These flavorful finger foods will leave you free to enjoy the party. Order a Halloween cake in advance from your local Walmart and have it decorated with creepy designs. A couple days before the fest, make up treat bags for guests filled with candy and glow sticks to light their way.
