Hosting a Delicious Halloween BBQ
Part of enjoying the perfect gathering is selecting easy Halloween party food. A little time and effort can be the perfect way to turn your favorite things into fabulous Halloween dinner ideas.
Oftentimes, traditional food can be transformed with just a spooky twist, wowing your party guests without a lot of extra effort.
Sometimes simply arranging regular food in a different way will transform it into one of your favorite Halloween treats, like with the vegetable platter, fruit cups, and ribs and sausage platter with a red pepper as a heart.
Other times, the way you cut the food gives the added effect, as with hot dog fingers made with Lil’ Smokies.
Simple additions, like black olives as eyeballs, barbecue sauce as blood, green food coloring added to a beverage, or even a plastic spider strategically positioned can automatically make your delicious appetizers or Halloween cookies have a spooky effect.
