Halloween Party Appetizers

Halloween party appetizers are great a great addition to your party because they are often finger foods, and can be easy to adapt to a theme. 

A very popular mix that is appearing at lots of parties on the appetizer table is a sort of "Halloween Trail Mix." Sometimes it is called a "Halloween Trash Mix."

To make this Halloween snack, you get a large bowl and pour in the ingredients of your choice. It varies from party to party, but the usual items include a mix of the following:

  • Candy corn
  • Mixed nuts
  • M&Ms (just using orange and black would be awesome!) or Chocolate Chips
  • Pretzels
  • Chex Mix
  • This trail mix recipe is great snack mix of sweet and savory.

    Some folks like to mix in marshmallows and raisins too.

    Make your own combination but make sure to include the candy corn - that adds a definite Halloween theme to your appetizer!

    Not just something to set out on your table at a Halloween party, you can also bag this up as a Halloween treat any time during the season!

    How to Make Homemade Halloween Tortilla Chips

    A friend of mine told me how to make homemade tortilla chips, and they are so easy and yummy!

    Simply heat your oven to 350 degrees, and pull out your corn tortillas. Cut them into triangle wedges and lay in a single layer on a baking sheet. Add a little salt and bake, about 6 minutes. Turn over with tongs, resalt and continue to bake. My friend likes to put a little lime juice on hers before baking for added flavor!

    You can make these extra fun for Halloween by cutting the tortillas into Halloween shapes before baking. Use Halloween cookie cutters to create your shapes!
