An easy Halloween Snacks party made by spooking up some of your favorite everyday snacks that everyone at the party will love!
Halloween is sneaking up on us pretty fast, it always seems like the closer we get to the end of the year the faster time flies. We’re going to be busy the weekend of Halloween this year and I won’t get a chance to make a fun costume like the Effie Trinket one I wore last year. But of course, I’ll use any excuse to still throw a party, so we decided to get together with some friends this weekend to enjoy some fun Halloween goodies and get into the Halloween spirit! Because life can be so crazy this time of year, I wanted to keep it simple and decided to do a fun Halloween Snacks spread for the party inspired by Oreo and Wheat Thins!
When I plan a party, I like to do my best to keep the stress and the mess down though I don’t always succeed, you should see my craft room/office right now… it makes me want to cry. But I at least try and one of my favorite things to do is combine a mix of homemade treats and store bought ones. These Black Cat Oreo Cupcakes are a bit of a mix of the two, I made my well-loved Dark Chocolate Fudge Cupcakes with a Vanilla Creme Frosting and turned the store bought Oreos into adorable black cats! You can find everything you’ll need as well as a fun step-by-step black cat Oreo video below!

It wouldn’t be a party without colorful paper straws!
I love keeping things basic, like dressing up these adorable Dasani bottles with Halloween Tags and Baker’s Twine that I found at Walmart. It makes them super festive without taking a ton of your time that could be better spent playing games with Fanta like this Ring Toss game at Play. Party. Pin, it’s a fun game for kids and adults alike!
Alright, so if there’s a cracker I truly love, it’s Wheat Thins. I can eat them straight but I really love dipping them. I made an Easy 5-Layer Spider Dip for the party using salsa, refried beans, guacamole, sour cream, and shredded cheese. Just add everything to a dish in even layers and you’re good to go! I topped mine with some super easy olive spiders. Simple take an olive, cut it in half, put one half cut side down and then slice the other half into thin legs and assemble around the body. Seriously, though, how
creepy cute is that and you can do it in all of 20 seconds! Dive in with your Wheat Thins and enjoy!
These Easy Candy Corn Tealight Holders were so simple and easy to make, and they make great party decor if the guests don’t eat them, ahem. Check out the Tutorial here.
Last but not least, another easy Halloween treat! Simply take some sandwich cookies, dip them in white chocolate and then add chocolate chips to make the eyes and mouth! the kiddos will love them!
Seriously, though, how cute and easy was this Halloween Snacks party? Pretty easy, right? I hope I’ve inspired you to make some super fun treats for your upcoming Halloween events! For even more fun Halloween party ideas, check these out!
Cheers to another successful party! Until next time! And a huge thank you to our wonderful hosts and our guests!
