17 Great Food Ideas for Your Halloween Dinner Party

We previously featured some great ways to decorate your table for a great Halloween dinner party, but if you're looking for some ideas on what to serve, we've got you covered on that end as well.

Frankenstein Dip

This dip is simply to die for -a layer of spinach and artichoke dips adorned with blue tortilla chips.

Spider Deviled Eggs

There are plenty of recipes for spider deviled eggs out there, but this one by The Hair Pin takes the idea to a whole new level of reality.

Batty Wontons

Wontons are always delicious, but they can also make a delightfully spooky snack when adorned with cream cheese, olives and pink peppercorns.

Spicy Bat Wings

There's nothing scary about boring old chicken wings, but serve them in pairs and call them bat wings and now you have a party appetizer worthy of a scream queen.

Monster Mucus

Possibly one of the most disgusting-looking foods on this list, but also most luxurious, this delicious treat simply takes two dozen shucked oysters and serves them in one laboratory tube for chilling effect.

Baked Brie Spiderweb

Not Quite Nigella has tons of Halloween recipes in this great party round up, but perhaps the most delicious and most spooky is this great spiderweb brie snack that seems deceptively simple to make.

Science Lab Dumplings

Served in a test tube and covered in a little chile sesame sauce, these pork and shitake dumplings look downright disgusting, but a quick review of the recipe will convince you that they are anything but.

Carrot Rice Balls

These cute jack-o-lanterns are made mostly with carrots and rice and decorated with black olives and green bell peppers.

Specimen Jars

These may look too real to want to spoon down your throat, but these sweet and savory specimen jars by Evil Mad Scientist Labs are actually entirely delicious delights perfect for any demented dinner party.

Meat Hand

Meatloaf and mashed potatoes make for a great main course and when it happens to look like a roasted human hand -all the better!

Rat Brownie Bites

These nasty treats are surprisingly tasty as they are actually brownies in disguise. Not Quite Nigella can show you how to make them for yourself.

Monkey Brain Cake

Sure it's inspired by an Indiana Jones film, but this terrifying dessert makes a great addition to any ghoulishly great dinner party.

Cake Ball Brains

Are your friends like ravenous zombies? Then load them up with their own private bloody brain. These great cake balls even feature the great effect of gooey cherry blood.

Zombie Brain Jell-o Shots

These delightful Jell-o shots combine the best of both desserts and cocktails with the flavors of raspberries, sweetened condensed milk and hazelnut liquor.

Bloody Syringe Drinks

It's always good to offer a special cocktail alternative for those that don't drink and even better when you can use the ingredients for other cocktails. By loading grenadine into syringes for Shirley Temples, you can also have them ready for tequila sunrises, just keep Sprite, orange juice and tequila on hand for guests to customize their drinks accordingly.

Blood of Vampires

This blood red cocktail is as beautiful as it is spooky and with the amount of booze it contains, it's sure to leave your guests with a haunted feeling the next morning.

Candy Corn Martini

With orange, yellow and white, this tasty cocktail looks just like a piece of candy corn -only drastically more tasty.
