Planning a party or a spooky meal before heading out to Trick or Treat with the kiddos? I’ve got 50 Halloween recipes and party inspiration ideas for a Spooktacular night.

When my Teens were younger, I made Mummy Dogs and Mac ‘n Cheese for dinner on Halloween. For many years. Making a fun, themed dinner was the best way to ensure my kids would have more than a bellyful of candy by night’s end. While I’m not averse to eating a Mummy Dog (or two), I also whipped up a pot of soup or chili for the adults.

Now that my kids are older (and taste buds have evolved), we’ve moved past Mummy Dogs and Mac ‘n Cheese to other fun Halloween eats. I prefer to make FUN spooky food for Halloween. I’m not into creepy food. Who wants to be grossed out by disgusting food? Severed finger hot dogs – yuck!!
