While candy seems to get all the (deserving) attention on Halloween, there are plenty of ghoulish goodies you can make to celebrate. From jack-o-lantern-looking stuffed peppers, to graveyard dip, this is the perfect time of year to pull out your best tricks in the kitchen.
These halloween popcorn mixes are a perfect snack to serve at a Halloween party, munch on during a scary movie, or to bag for the kids’ lunches in October. If you haven’t picked out your costume yet, these 3 recipes are sure to get you in the spooky spirit.
Caramel Candy Corn Popcorn mix is sugar, spice, and everything nice. The pretzels and popcorn are crunchy and salty. Mixed with Reese’s pieces and caramel chunks, it’s a dream mix for those who like a little savory with their sweet. And you can’t celebrate Halloween without candy corn, can you? – so there’s plenty where that came from too.
If you aren’t serving or eating something with googly eyes, can you really say you celebrated Halloween? Simply coat your popcorn with black candy melts and add your favorite sprinkles and decorations. We’re not sure if the kids will like decorating or eating this black widow popcorn more – but either way, it’s a win, win.
If you’re a fan of dirt cake, you’ll love this bright green popcorn mix. We used food color spray (that we picked up at a local craft store) to turn the popcorn green, then added gummy worms, mini Oreos, and skittles. For shock value, serve it in the biggest cauldron you can find and sprinkle in a few plastic spiders. It’s the perfect centerpiece for your annual Halloween party.
