How To: Spooky Snacks for Scary Movie Nights

This year’s Halloween is bound to look different than years’ past, but that’s no reason not to share your latest costume (which we’ve all been working on for weeks now!) with your family and friends bubble and get a little festive!  What better way to celebrate Halloween than with your favorite scary movies and some great snacks?

Below is a list of some tempting treats with ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry.

Obviously, popcorn tops the movie night snack list. But there’s so much more you can do with popcorn besides just taking it out of the microwave and pouring it into a bowl. (Or just eating it straight from the bag -- we’ve all been there!) 

Experiment with some different seasonings. Depending on your taste, you can add dill seasoning, cheddar or Parmesan cheese, hot sauces, caramel, siracha, sea salt, chocolate sauce, honey … the list is endless! Then, don’t forget toppings. Add in some pretzels and M&Ms for a salty-sweet snack, some candy corn to celebrate the season, or throw in some marshmallows if you’re just craving something sweet. Set out a popcorn bar with all the sauces, seasonings, and toppings and have a competition to determine who can make the best-tasting mix!  

Trick or Treat Personal Pizzas

Pizzas are great to make when you’ve got people with different taste and diet preferences. All you have to provide is the dough, some sauces and toppings, and let your guests show no fear in making their own creations. Have you ever tried a pesto parm pizza? Mushroom truffle pizza with a white wine sauce? More of a classic cheese and pepperoni person? Don’t be afraid! Take a look around your kitchen and see what you might have to kick that classic pizza up a notch. Challenge your guests to a contest to see who can make the scariest-looking pie.

Scary Skewers

Metal skewers can have the illusion of being scary – you’re literally stabbing meats, fruits, or veggies with a metal rod. But, skewers are another snack that are easily customizable to your guests’ personal preferences.

One of our favorites is little wooden or bamboo skewers with mozzarella, tomato, prosciutto, and basil leaves. (We eat anything wrapped in prosciutto.) You can also play around with different fruits and berries (the sweet route) or go big by grilling some steak or chicken with veggies for a delicious entrée that’s sure to please every poltergeist at the party.

Muenster Cheese Fingers with Bloody Tomato Sauce

If you’ve been following us on social media or reading our blog, you’ll know we posted this oozy, gooey recipe a few weeks ago. What’s better than some fried cheese sticks that are in theme?

Haunted Hot Chocolate

You could add green or red food coloring to your potion. Some gummy worms. Marshmallows. It’s scary movie night – anything goes! But, if you’re into just ending the night in cozy comfort, there’s nothing better than a nice big mug of hot cocoa topped with whipped cream.

And, last but not least, be sure to serve and share with COVALEY!
