It’s too bad most of us are probably too old to trick-or-treat anymore. There’s nothing we looked forward to more each year than finding ourselves drunk off sugar surrounded by crinkled candy wrappers tossed on the floor. But just because we may look funny walking around the neighborhood in our Batman costumes doesn’t mean we can’t partake in the spooky festivities.

That's why we found some of the most creative, spine-chilling, mummy — er, yummy — Halloweeniest food on the Web. Some are healthy, some are indulgent, and some are just too disgusting to stomach. But they’re all perfect for the festivities come Oct. 31.

28 Easy Halloween Recipes Guaranteed to Freak Out Your Guests

You've already sent out your haunting Halloween party invites, completed your corpse bride costume, and planned those spooky table settings, but what about the scary food recipes? Bloody meringue bones and witch fingers and dip will get your guests hungrier than a zombie in a morgue. There are a lot of sweets on the menu, but you won't be stuck with just leftover trick-or-treating candy. Get ready for some seriously startling Halloween foods that'll have you and your guests doing a double-take. Keep your defibrillator handy, because these terrifying treats are not for the faint of heart.

White Chocolate Strawberry Lab Mice: October 31 is the only time of year when seeing mice in the kitchen is actually a good thing. After all, they're made from strawberries and white chocolate! (via Brit + Co)

Monster Eye-Scream Cookies: If you like cute more than creepy, these adorable ice cream cookies have your name written all over them. (via Brit + Co)

Witches' Finger Cookies and Red Velvet Hot Chocolate: Name a more iconic duo than witch finger cookies and red velvet hot chocolate — we'll wait. (via Domestic Gothess)

Mummy Pizzas: Trick your kids into eating their veggies by turning zucchini ribbons into tasty mummy bandages atop French bread pizzas. (via Brit + Co)

Spooky Halloween Popsicles: Autumn weather is notoriously unpredictable. Make a batch of spooky frozen pops in case you find yourself sweating through your monster mask. (via Brit + Co)

Slow-Cooker Vampire Punch: Have chills running up and down your spine? Ghouls of all ages can sip on this non-alcoholic crimson punch. For a more potent potion, add rum. (via Boulder Locavore)

Ghoulish Red Velvet Cake: Bloody bones, crumbled red velvet, lots of sugar — this dessert is everything a Halloween treat should be. (via Brit + Co)

Bug Tuxedo Cake: This bug-covered cake is gorgeous, but it will absolutely creep out your friends and loved ones. We imagine this is what they served when Beetlejuice tried to marry Lydia. (via Brit + Co)

Raw Avocado Zombie Bars: Unlike zombies, vegans don't eat brains, or any other food that comes from an animal for that matter. Instead, serve them up some raw, vegan avocado zombie bars for a healthy treat. (via Brit + Co)

Jack-o-Lantern Pumpkin Ice Cream: Halloween heatwaves don't stand a chance against cones of grinning, grimacing pumpkin ice cream. (via Salty Canary)

Petri Dish Jello Shots: Usually we *avoid* putting germs in our body, but these Jell-O shot petri dishes look so good, we just can't resist having one for dessert. Oh, and they're make-ahead, leaving you more time to work on your costume. (via Brit + Co)

Spider Web Cereal Treats: Jazz up your usual cereal treats with a thick layer of chocolate ganache and a web of icing on top. Simple, spooky, and superb. (via Jelly Toast)

Blood Bones Cocktail: Spike your punch bowl with bones made from Jell-O shot ingredients, including whipped cream vodka. (via Brit + Co)

Halloween Avocado Toast: What's more terrifying than millennials spending all their hard-earned cash on avocados and destroying the real estate industry? Turning those avos into totally freaky breakfast toasts, of course. (via Brit + Co)

Whole Wheat Witch Fingers + Dip: Healthy and Halloween don't have to be mutually exclusive. Serve this on days when you're not feeling the sweet stuff. (via Texanerin Baking)

Halloween Monster Popcorn: When stocking your Halloween pantry, you'd better buy edible googly eyes in bulk. Add them to everything from popcorn to oatmeal to instantly make your meal mortifying. (via Salty Canary)

Midnight Galaxy Donut Holes: Howl at the full moon while snacking on glorious galaxy swirl donut holes. Just make sure you bring enough to share with the werewolves. (via Brit + Co)

Halloween Bark: Dark chocolate and bloody red candy melts combine to make this popcorn bark a spooky treat. (via Curbly)

Halloween Monster Sushi Bites: Get the kids to help decorate these monstrous sushi bites, and they might actually forget about candy for a while. (via Brit + Co)

Eyeball and Mummy Cake Balls: Nothing like popping an eyeball in your mouth for a sweet snack, right? (via Brit + Co)

Blood-Splattered Petit Fours: Pound cake squares and sugar glass sounds totally scrumptious to us. Those who faint at the sight of blood might want to skip this one, though. (via Brit + Co)

Bloody Meringue Bones: You don't need any special ingredients to make realistic edible blood. Frozen blackberries, sugar, and lemon juice do the trick nicely. (via Brit + Co)

Black Martinis: This cocktail is sweeter than it seems. It gets its dark color from blackberries, Chambord, and a drop of food coloring. (via Brit + Co)

Spooky Chocolate Glazed Cannoli Dip: When faced with a vat of chocolate glazed cannoli dip, the only thing we have to fear is our appetite. (via Give it Some Thyme)

Black + Orange Rum Punch: It's the one time of year that a black and orange cocktail won't freak out your guests too badly. (via Brit + Co)

(Gummy) Worm Ice Cubes: For a Halloween cocktail trick and treat, add gummy worms to your guests' ice. (via Brit + Co)

35 Creative And Spooky Halloween Food Ideas

Halloween is just a month away and it’s high time to think over organizing an amazing party. Whatever theme you choose, there are two main things that should be present at the party: decor and food. There’s no party without delicious treats and cool drinks, and you should choose and cook taking into consideration the guests and whether it’s a kids’ or an adults’ party. Today I’ll inspire you with amazing ideas of food for both kids of parties – most of them can be found on Pinterest with recipes, and part of them can be easily DIYed even without a recipe.

Halloween Adults’ Party Food

If you are planning a stunning adults’ Halloween party, decide on the theme: will it be a bloody theme? Dexter? Vampire, zombies or else? Choose the food and drinks according to your theme to make the party more stylish. If it’s a refined party, create dark romance displays with veggies, cheese, salami and figs. If you are craving for some blood, make bloody cookies, bloody brains, cupcakes and cheesecakes – red tinted sauce is right what you need to create such effects. Different parts of human body are a spooky idea to recreate, and you can make scary finger hot dogs, various displays with skeletons and skulls and put meat and sausage there, so your display will remind of human body parts.

55 Creative Halloween Party Snacks That Are Equally Creepy and Cute

Further proof that you can turn any food into something ghoulish and ghastly.

Planning an extra-spooky Halloween celebration this year? While creative Halloween costumes and festive decorations are essential to any holiday bash, everyone knows that the food is one of the most important (and memorable!) parts of celebrating Halloween.

23. Jack Skellington Cheesecakes

It’s always a good idea to have a variety of sweet treats at a potluck, after all, who can say no to delicious mini cheesecakes? These cheesecakes are decorated to look like Pumpkin King from The Nightmare Before Christmas movie.

13 Spooky Halloween Food Ideas!

I LOVE hosting a good Halloween Party! Making spooky Halloween food is my favorite part of planning the party.

This week, I&rsquove got another great Halloween Giveaway from Juicy Juice. One lucky winner will receive a fun Halloween Party Kit so they can throw a spooktacular party for their kids!

Juicy Juice asked me to give you tips for making Halloween fun and memorable. So of course I had to share my favorite party foods that I have made over the years!

Besides fun Halloween food, I always have juice boxes for the kids. This year, I&rsquom excited about the new Juicy Juice Fruitfuls which are made with 35% less sugar and a full serving of fruit. With less sugar, it&rsquos a great way to give kids a break from all of the candy they will be eating!

Besides fun food, be sure to have some fun party games for the kids!

We always have a game of &ldquoGuess How Many!&rdquo Fill a jar with candy and give a prize for who guesses the closest amount.

The Juicy Juice Halloween Monster Giveaway comes with some fun blow up games like this spider ring toss. Perfect for all ages.

Halloween is all about the eerie, scary, and downright creepy. When you're hosting (or rather, ghost hosting) a Halloween party, make a variety of sweet and savory finger foods for guests to enjoy&mdashjust be sure to get a little creative with the decorations atop these skull-tacular snacks.

For example, piping meringue in the shape of bones or brains makes for pretty frightening cookies. Going the extra step and drizzling pomegranate glaze on top to mimic blood takes them into fright-astic territory. The combination of sweet fruit with salty cured meat is a classic pairing, but make sure yours gets a hair-raising makeover for Halloween: shape dried figs and prunes into hearts, then stuff them with goat cheese and wrap in prosciutto. Of course, deviled eggs are always a hit at parties but we make the ones seen here even more devilish with black sesame seeds and a spicy addition (we won't say boo!).

Raw bars are always an elegant way to entertain, whether for a cocktail parties or the start of a festive dinner, but their pretty presentation has no place at a sinister gathering like this. So serve the same ingredients&mdashstone-crab claws and poached shrimp&mdashdraped out of a bowl filled with an alarmingly spicy cocktail sauce. It's a hauntingly fun way to make guests think twice before digging into something truly delicious.

Do you dare try the spooky little black-widow spider bites ahead? The savory combination of avocado and black olives is a fun yet frightening snack for adults. For something creepy on the outside but totally sweet on the inside, our brain cupcakes will terrify (and then delight!) your friends.

Since it is Halloween, have fun with the black and orange theme and go all out with the blood-curdling tricks and treats. Beware! Something wicked this way comes.
