31 Days of Hallowedding Inspiration #20: Tricks and Treats

There are so many ways to spook up your food, and so many Halloween and fall foods that are so yummy! There are also some really creepy looking foods out there, which would be great for a Halloween party, but you don't want to gross out any of your more fair weather Hallowedding guests! Here are a few dishes the hopefully walk the line well. (Click on photo for source link).

Hors d'oeuvres




Not sure if you can serve boiled eggs at a wedding? Love this idea though.
from Martha




Caramel Nut Popcorn could be good for a snack table, or if you are doing more informal hors d'oeuvres.


If you'd rather not make the food spooky, but still want that Halloween feel, you could use cauldrons or pumpkins for snack bowls; apothecary jars have become really popular at weddings, but certainly serve as a spooky serving dish also.

Main Courses



Check out this idea from (guess who?) Martha Stewart. Is there anything she can't do?

If you can get your caterer to do this...well, that would be swell.

Here are some other great sounding Halloween recipes.

Desserts
On to the fun stuff! Sweets. Goodies. Treats. This is a genre that you can really expand your Halloween creativity!





BOO! Cupcakes


Chocolate Dipped Apples, Shaped Cookies, and Chocolate Skulls
from Williams Sonoma


Pumpkin Whoopie Pies from Hostess with the Mostess


I love, love, love pumpkin rolls, and so does just about everyone else I know. You could try the traditional pumpkin roll (left) or a creepy version (right).


These are a bit creepy for me...but still fun!


And how could you have Halloween desserts and not include dirt! Especially with a spooked up cookie tombstone added to it!


How about some famous Hogsmead Butterbeer. (**Really letting my nerd shine through**). This does sound yummy though!
