Spooky Halloween Party Appetizers

Spooky Halloween Party Appetizers

One of the great thing about Halloween is that it’s the perfect excuse to make all kinds of wacky and weird dishes—things like witches’ fingers, goopy ‘eyeballs’, vampire teeth, and anything bats, ghosts, gremlins or ghouls. And while they might pretend otherwise, grown-ups and kids are equally into it. Who doesn’t want to nibble on a Shrunken Little Potato Head? They make for good break-the-ice party conversation starters, too.

If you’re getting ready to host a small gathering this October 31st, here are some fantastic dishes and appetizers—some fun, some silly, some creepy—to get everyone into the holiday mood. With your party dilemmas solved, the only question left is, “Trick or treat?”

Monster Mash

For vegetables with just a few adornments, Halloween Potato Monsters are surprisingly expressive and will make even the most bah-humbug party guest crack a smile. Prepare our quick Microwave Ready Creamers, then decorate with the help of purple food coloring, water chestnuts, a Greek yogurt-herb mix, carrot slivers, and olives. We are partial to the Cyclops, but tap into your creativity to invent your monster varieties.

Disembodied Heads

Healthy Halloween Appetizers - The Little Potato Company

Shrunken Little Potato Heads look pretty hilarious, and they’re tasty, too, roasted in rosemary and salt, then assembled with the help of cream cheese, pumpkin seeds and radish slices.

Something’s Watching You…

Smashed potatoes with a few simple toppings can suddenly become spooky monster eyeballs with the right placement! Serve them up to your favorite ghouls.

Witches’ Brew

Creamy Cashew Curry Potato Soup - The Little Potato Company

Vegan Creamy Cashew Curry Soup Potato Soup is a perfect hue of witchy green, not to mention intense and rich, with a kick of spice. Use a stencil or cookie cutter to make a jack o’ lantern or witch outline in smoked paprika over top before serving.

Happy Halloween!
