Budget Halloween Party Food

No Halloween party is complete without gory & ghoulish treats. Here are five budget-friendly Halloween food ideas you can make by purchasing a few inexpensive ingredients.


Gummy Worms in Pudding Dirt

A Halloween classic, serve chocolate pudding topped with gummy worms & crushed cookie dirt. To add a touch of sophistication, serve them in wine glasses or martini glasses. Use hardcover or leather bound books in small stacks to add levels to your serving area. Click the image for the complete how-to.

Witch Finger Cookies

Another Halloween classic, witch finger cookies are made from a simple shortbread cookie recipe. I added green food dye to the cookie dough to create green witch fingers. Brush the almond fingernails with red food dye for manicured fingers. Click the image for the recipe.

Meringue Cookie Bones

Meringue cookies are very inexpensive to make because the base ingredients are simply egg whites and sugar. When piped in a bone shape, these are prefect for serving at a Halloween party. These are also seen served on a bed of crushed cookie dirt. Click the image for the recipe.

Hard Boiled Egg Eyeballs

Hard boiled eggs are a great budget party hors d'oeuvre. You can pick up a dozen eggs for just a few dollars. Serve them on a simple platter in pairs to resemble sets of spooky eyes. I sprinkled candy corn to dress up the dish. Click the image for the recipe.

Wickedly Delicious Wine
