GRAVEYARD TACO DIP
This recipe is delightfully simple to throw together, yet is super effective in bringing a spine-tingling spirit to any Halloween party. Simply top with gravestone tortilla chips and enjoy! We promise not to tell anyone how easy this one was.
PUMPKIN DEVILED EGGS
If you're anything like me, deviled eggs are a party appetizer staple. Hell, it would be an entire entrée if it was socially acceptable. What makes these pumpkin-shaped delights so special (and easy) is that it hardly requires any effort to take a standard deviled egg from regular to festive. Hint: you only need one special ingredient!
CHORIZO AND CARAMELIZED ONION STUFFED INTESTINES
Talk about a visual! Though these "intestines" aren't really intestines, they still offer a mind-blowing visual effect that might have some of your guests doing a double take. Puff pastry, Mexican chorizo, Havarti cheese, onions and cranberries come together to make a truly frightening (and filling) dish.
BLACK MAGIC MARGARITAS
If you're familiar with the movie Practical Magic, you know all about Midnight Margaritas. Though the Owens family didn't practice black magic, nobody said you couldn't enjoy these Practical Magic inspired Black Magic Margaritas. All it takes is some black sanding sugar and food coloring to insert some serious mystic energy into a standard margarita. Cheers!
HALLOWEEN HIBISCUS PUNCH
Is planning ahead and preparing things in advance your own personal love language? You're in luck. This delicious Halloween punch—featuring hibiscus blossoms, Thai basil, ginger, smoky mezcal and fresh fruits—can be made ahead and served up individually or placed in a large punch bowl so your guests can serve themselves. Just don't blame us when you run out!
Of course, if cannabis or alcohol isn't your jam, simply omit those ingredients for an equally tasty treat.
