What makes for a Halloween Appetizer?

Delicious, warm and inviting appetizers are perfect for your Halloween party. I have collected an assortment of some of our favorites.

Once you have your appetizer menu planned the next question is HOW MUCH to make. Here’s a good rule of thumb to follow:

  • If you are planning to serve dinner then you will only need about 3-5 appetizers per person.
  • If you do not plan to serve dinner you will want to increase the amount per person according to how long your event lasts. For a 2-4 hour event serve 8-12 appetizers per person. For an event lasting longer than 4 hours plan to serve 12-15 appetizers.

Since the appetizers themselves aren’t necessarily Halloween themed you can dress up the table with Halloween themed bowls and platters. A really fun idea in turning an average appetizer into a Halloween theme is to make labels for the items.

For example:

  • “Witch Fingers” for Fried Green Beans
  • “Toxic Sludge” for Green Chili Cream Cheese Dip
  • “Spider Eggs” for Fried Mac N Cheese

Be creative!
