Fun Halloween Party Foods (2015 Edition)


Last weekend, we decided to repeat a tradition we started this past year: a pre-Halloween pumpkin carving party for friends and their kiddos.


We already had some great recipes from last year including salmon sandwich ghosts and chocolate-dipped pretzel rods that we chose to repeat this year.  But I also expanded this year’s spread to include candy corn brownies, a “puking pumpkin” filled with guacamole, bruschetta with spooky mozzarella cutous, and mummies in a blanket.





None of these recipes are really mindblowing, so I won’t go into the specifics, except for one: pumpkin spice jelly shots!



  • 1 cup + 1 tsp boiling water
  • 1 cup chilled Captain Morgan rum
  • 2 oz Fireball
  • 1 envelope orange-flavored gelatin mix
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice


  1. Bring your water to a boil in a small saucepan, then remove from heat, add gelatin packet and pumpkin pie spice, until all the gelatin has been dissolved.
  2. Add in cold chilled alcohol and stir until combined.
  3. Pour mixture into your individual cups or mold and put in the fridge to chill for at least 4 hours (overnight is easier).
  4. Enjoy!
