5 Easy Halloween foods

It’s almost time for Halloween!! I love making a fuss over the holidays but I need everything to be super easy right now. I’ve put together and tested 5 Easy Halloween Foods to help you throw a party, pack a themed lunch, and basically make you look like the super hero that you are with minimal effort and supplies. All that’s left for you to do is eat, drink, and be scary with the ones you love.

Tip: I do refrigerate these a bit after I make them so that the chocolate hardens up a bit around the pretzel and they stay together better.

Sand”witches”

supplies: your choice of bread rolls, lettuce, turkey, witch legs/hat toothpicks ( these found at Michael’s)

Everyone thought these were adorable and all I did was push a few cute toothpicks in. I mean, I was going to make their lunches anyway, right???

Halloween Fruit & Cheese Skewers

supplies: orange/black skewers, cheddar cheese cubes, black seedless grapes, blackberries

If you are running short on creativity and time, THIS is for you. You can’t go wrong with orange and black for Halloween treats and fruit and cheese is a hit with any crowd. Alternate cheese and fruit and you are all set.

I hope this has been a help to you and that you all aren’t judging me for not baking from scratch, creating an actual recipe, or something. The reality is we have to know our limits. Sometimes those restrictions are because of limited hours in a day and sometimes we just have to balance things. For me, this season is about bringing joy and keeping myself sane and it requires simple things. Simple can still be cute.
