Spooky and Fun Halloween Food Ideas

Shrimp look eerie hanging on a black pot filled with ice.

What’s your Halloween ritual? Do you take your kids out trick-or-treating? Or do you dress up and have everyone over for a costume party?

Whichever way you decide to spend your Halloween night, there’s sure to be good food around! Here are a few easy ways to add some ‘chills’ to your Halloween spread:

Finger Limes

Finger Limes taste like 'citrus caviar' and easily dresses up a dish.

  • Look around your kitchen for black pots, plates, trays, cups and more. These dark dishes will be perfect to display various foods and candy (like our shrimp tray above)

  • Use ‘scary’ fruits like peeled grapes, prickly pears, or these finger limes (seen at left). I always like to find unusual fruits, usually seen in this section.
Beet Pie

Instead of Pumpkin Pie, try substituting pumpkins for beets to create a spooky treat.

  1. Roughly chop the beets and herbs and put in a food processor with the walnuts and garlic and process until you have a course paste.
  2. Add the oil and vinegar and season generously with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Taste to check the seasoning – you may need to add a little more vinegar if the beets are particularly sweet.
  3. Serve with pita chips, crackers, etc.
