Halloween Party Food - Meatloaf Mice, Fungi Salad, Brown Spider Cookies and, something to drink, Swamp Water Slurpers.

A complete menu of Halloween party food that's good enough  - and easy enough -  to impress all the ghosts and goblins at your house.

Here’s a nourishing main course than will warm any (big or little) goblin’s  little tummy! Four super spooky fun and yucky halloween foods for parties – or just to thrill your family.

Is that why you're wearing a witches hat?

Meatloaf Mice

For this, you will need your favorite meatloaf recipe, perhaps some catsup or spaghetti sauce, a few long carrots, and a few pieces of uncooked dry spaghetti noodles.

When you have all these ingredients, start by cutting the carrot crosswise to make some mouse ears and lengthwise to make the mouse tail. Cut as many as you need with 2 ears and 1 tail for each mouse.

Steam both carrot pieces until they are crisp tender.

Mix your favorite meatloaf recipe and shape it into small mouse shaped mini loaves. Place them in a suitable pan and bake until done.

When the mouse sized meatloaves are cooked through, at the appropriate places, carefully cut little slits for the carrot ears and tail and pop the carrots ears and tail pieces in.

Break the uncooked spaghetti noodles into small pieces for the whiskers of the mouse.

Serve in a pool of gravy if you wish.

Optional: Cut tiny pieces of fresh tomato or red sweet pepper for eyes.

Fungi Salad

For this, you will need creamed spinach (spinach in a cream sauce), lettuce, carrots, cucumbers, tomatoes, radishes and red onions.

Cook the spinach and let cool. Put the spinach in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to cool even more while you wash the other vegetables in cold water.

Dry the lettuce using a paper towel or spinner.

Cut the other vegetables into small pieces and place in a serving bowl.

Pour in cooled spinach cream and stir.

Serve over pieces of fresh lettuce.

Brown Spider Cookies

For this Halloween party food, you will need:

peanut butter

Ritz crackers

pretzel sticks

softened chocolate (chocolate candy melts, chocolate chips or Hersheys Kisses

Icing and food coloring to make it brown (optional)

tube of red icing gel (optional for mouth and eyes)

For each cookie:

  1. Spread two crackers fairly thickly with peanut butter. Set one aside.
  2. Take 8 pretzel sticks. With one peanut buttered cracker face up, form the legs of the brown spider cookie by placing 4 pretzels sticks on each side of the cracker for the spider’s legs.
  3. Spread peanut butter over a second cracker and put it sticky side down over the spider legs.

Now you have your spider, if you wish to make it brown (or green or red or ?), then:

Spread the melted chocolate, if you are using it, over the top of the cracker (brown spider) even until it runs down over the edges.

Color white candy melts with food coloring of your choice for red or other colored spiders.

And/or :

Cover the whole top except the legs with chocolate frosting. Chill.

Using the gel, add eyes and a mouth to the edge of the cookie at the head end.

Swamp Water Slurpers

To complete your Halloween party food, serve: Swamp Water Slurpers

You will need chocolate ice cream, chocolate syrup and club soda.

When the ice cream is easy to scoop, put one or two scoops into each glass at least halfway.

Now, pour in 3 tablespoons of chocolate syrup.

Last, fill it to the top with club soda and stir well with a spoon.

Serve with a straw and slurp it up.

Halloween Party Food: Options (more yech)

Hope you enjoyed Halloween Party Food! These easy recipes are simple to make and don't cost too much. Definitely Pennywise and that's a good thing since you've probably already spent more than you wanted to on costumes and decorations! .

One of the good things about these Halloween Party food selctions is how flexible they are. For instance, you might not even want chocolate or icing on the Brown Spider cookies - then you don't have to use them.

You may prefer to use cheese spread - or mozzarella or cheddar cheese and warm them slightly until the cheese melts for a yummy cracker.

No time to mix meatloaf but you have hamburger patties in the freezer? Thaw the patties and squish them together into a mouse shape before you cook them. As long as you add the ears, tail and whiskers and call them Creepy Mice, who will know. (I will. You will. Nobody else)

Want to really gross your halloween goblins out? Use two hamburger patties with a layer of cheddar cheese in the middle, heat till the cheese melts and oozes out...stick in the carrot pieces. You come up with a name for them.

Or, put the whole works in a small bun so the head and the tail of the mouse are sticking out.

Yuk! but Yummy!

Happy Halloween!
