Halloween is just around the corner, and what better way to celebrate than with a pumpkin carving party? While the main event is, of course, creating spooky jack-o’-lanterns, it’s essential not to forget about the delicious treats that can elevate your gathering to a whole new level.
Kick off your pumpkin carving party with a spooktacular twist on guacamole. Prepare your favorite guacamole recipe using the Lamson avocado masher. Then create eyes and an open mouth on a small pumpkin or gourd, giving it a playful monster appearance. It’s a delightfully eerie dip for your party that’s sure to be a hit.
Wicked Witch’s Fingers
Add some chilling fun to your Halloween gathering with spooky “bloody” cookie fingers. Bake your favorite sugar cookie recipe and shape them into finger-like sticks. After shaping your sugar cookie sticks, gently press an almond slice onto one end of each finger to create the effect of hauntingly realistic nails. Then, drizzle on the “bloody” raspberry jam or strawberry sauce. It’s a Halloween treat that’ll give your guests delightful chills!
Spooky Spider Deviled Eggs
Elevate your deviled eggs game by turning them into spooky spiders. After filling your deviled eggs, use a Lamson Paring knife to carefully cut black olives to create spider bodies and legs on top. It’s a quick and eerie addition to your party spread.
Candy Corn Fruit Cups
For a healthier Halloween treat, serve candy corn fruit cups. Layer pineapple chunks, mandarin oranges, and whipped cream in clear cups to mimic the colors of candy corn. Lamson’s Brad Leone Cleavers will make quick work of slicing and chopping the pineapple. It’s a sweet and refreshing snack that fits the theme.
Turn your regular hot dogs into mummies by wrapping them in strips of crescent roll dough. Lamson’s bread knives will help you slice the dough perfectly. Leave space for the “mummy’s” eyes and bake until golden brown. Add mustard or ketchup eyes for that extra spooky touch.
Witch’s Brew Punch
No Halloween party is complete without a witch’s brew. Mix up a batch of green punch using lime sherbet, pineapple juice, and lemon-lime soda. Add gummy worms and floating “eyeballs” made from lychees and blueberries for an eerily tasty concoction.
With these Halloween food hacks, your pumpkin carving party is sure to be a spooktacular success. These creative and delicious treats will not only keep your guests fueled and happy but also add a fun and festive touch to your celebration. So, gather your friends and family, carve those pumpkins, and indulge in these Halloween-themed delights for a memorable and hauntingly good time.
