Halloween is almost here and we can hardly wait! Halloween is one of our favorite holidays because it's all about food and fun. Isn't it always a blast to see your friends and family dressed up in the weirdest costumes they could find? And then there are the great Halloween rituals like trick-or-treating, theme parties, jack-o-lanterns and eating pounds and pounds of candy.
Sure, we could have given you recipes for Boo-ritos and Fright Chicken, but we went straight to dessert because Halloween is all about fun. Few will be able to resist the power of Mini Halloween Cupcakes, Popcorn Pumpkins and Whoopie Pies. They can wash it all down with a cauldron of Black Punch.
To find the tastiest (and spookiest) recipes for your party, we revved up the FoodPair Recipe Search Engine for a colorful and delicious Halloween party menu.
