I’m having a halloween party for my kids friends, their teenagers and I dont know what food to make. I want to have a halloween theme but because its for teens I don’t want any stupid stuff.

Does anyone have any spooky kid friendly food.

    Make jello with gummy worms in it. You can make mini meringues, and dust them with Halloween colors, You can make chocolate cake and after baking, screw it up a bit and stick gummy spiders & creepy crawly things in it so it looks like they are crawling out. You can use cotton candy, too, to toss on food, its nice and spider-webby. Hope I helped! Have fun!

    just put out some chips and dip and some sodas and maybe a few candys. those will work no matter what kind of party it is.

  • bildymooner says:

    Warm spiced apple cider. Dont worry they are teenagers they might complain about a lot of things but what ever you do for them they will love it. Dont expect them to thank you or show any kind of appreciation though.

  • Evi C says:

    Spaghetti and meat balls?????? the noodles are slimey and the meatballs are like eyeballs or brains…….thats what my mom did for me when i was 8 yrs old and i had a Halloween party……lol….oh wait you said teenagers……hhhmm Pizza??

  • ben s says:

  • Candilaria says:

    Black tortilla Nachos with Sharp Cheddar, chili, and Black olives (creates that orange and black color theme). Devil’s Food Cupcakes with Milanos stuck in them. Use thin chocolate writing to put RIP and they become headstones.

  • Natalia says:

    Well pizza is always a good bet. But one thing that is really fun – even for teens – bobing for apples, I love to do that, it’s fun and funny, and hey it’s fruit, it’s good for you!

  • Katie says:

    Kids luv sweets, since im a teenager when i go to partys have candy out, pizza, ice cream(basiclly junk food) Make like an oreo grave yard like crumble oreos for the dirt on the ground and use cookies that are oval shaped and stick them in the oreos and rite on them with icing. it tastes sooo good. also use gummy worms.

    hope your party turns out good

    As someone who recently left the teenage relm, pretty much anything you do is going to be considered "lame" but go for basics and make your life easier, bowls with chip and dip are good, a few coolers with soda are a must, but halloween cookies are great! bowls of candy are even better, pixi sticks are allways a plus. Oh and punch is good too. Sprite mixed with orange HI-C!

    Since Halloween is one holiday that’s focused on food and fun, it’s easy to come up with great party activities for kids where everyone even gets something edible and adorable as a favor. There are endless variations on cookie and cupcake decorating with favorite Halloween candies, so don’t get scared the next time you have to host a group of little ghouls — just try one of the fun and easy activities below!

    Turn simple sugar cookies into real Halloween treats by cutting them out into spooky shapes and bake as usual. When the cookies have cooled, prepare boldly-colored mixtures of powdered sugar, water and food coloring and let the kids (and grown-ups) go wild.

    Recipe to try: Flower Sugar Cookies

    Create your Own Creepy Chocolate Lollipops
    Everyone gets a lump of with Play-Doh and a (kid-friendly) plastic knife to create their own mold for one-of-a-kind Halloween lollypops. You can buy or make modeling chocolate — a mixture of chocolate and corn syrup — at a baking shop to make it even easier to work with the melted chocolate and the molds.

    Recipe to try: Chocolate Lollipops

    Make a Haunted Halloween House
    Create a spooky Halloween House using your favorite candies as a fun party or family activity and you’ll end up with a great centerpiece to use throughout the Halloween festivities. Make sure you have enough spooky visitors for your haunted house by picking up ghost-shaped marshmallows and bats, gummy worms, and other candies that haunt local shops in October.

    Recipe to try: Haunted Candy House

    Serve Crunchy Candy Sushi
    Use fruit roll-ups and marshmallow treats with a variety of fillings for colorful and kid-friendly candy sushi. Kids can cut the fillings to size, roll their sushi, and create exotic names for their new creations — a real "rainbow roll" won’t have anything on these playful treats!

    Recipe to try: Candy Sushi

    Host a Cupcake Decoration Contest
    Either make chocolate and vanilla cupcakes in advance or with the kids — there is lots of easy stirring, measuring, and egg-breaking to be done — before you get down to the serious business of decoration. Set out bowls of chocolate and vanilla frosting and lots of candies for decorating. Help kids add a drop at a time of food coloring to color their frosting and see where their imaginations lead them!

    Recipe to try: Spider Cupcakes

    Bake a Jack-O-Lantern Cake
    Bake your favorite cake recipe in muffin top pans and frost the cooled cakes with orange-colored buttercream. Kids can design the faces first on a piece of paper and get help unrolling a fruit roll-up and cutting out eyes, nose, and mouth with a sharp paring knife. Gently peel the pieces off of the plastic backing and lay on the frosted cakes to get a jack-o-lantern grin out of all your guests!

    /4 cup unsalted butter (1 1/2 sticks), at room temperature
    1 cup sugar
    1 1/2 cups cake flour, sifted
    1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
    1/4 teaspoon fine salt
    1/2 cup milk, at room temperature
    3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
    3 large eggs, at room temperature, separated
    Cream Cheese Frosting, recipe follows, or about 2 cups frosting of your choice
    Colorful sprinkles
    Equipment: A twelve 1/2-cup muffin pan

    Place a rack in the middle of the oven and preheat to 375 degrees F. Line the muffin pan with paper cupcake liners.
    In a standing mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the butter and sugar and mix on low speed until just incorporated. Raise the speed to high and mix until light and fluffy, about 10 minutes. (Occasionally turn the mixer off, and scrape the sides of the bowl down with a rubber spatula.)
    Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside. In a small bowl, whisk together the milk and vanilla, and also set aside.
    Add the egg yolks to the creamed butter one at time, waiting for each one to be fully incorporated before adding the next.
    Reduce the speed of the mixer to low. Alternately, add the flour mixture in 3 additions and the milk in 2 additions, waiting for each to be fully incorporated before adding the next (scrape the bowl down occasionally). Raise the speed to medium and mix briefly until a smooth batter is formed. Transfer the batter to a large bowl.
    Thoroughly clean the bowl of the mixer and put the egg whites inside. Whip the egg whites on high speed, using the whisk attachment, until stiff peaks are formed.
    Working in 3 batches, using a rubber spatula, fold the egg whites into the batter, until just incorporated. Divide the batter evenly among the cups in the muffin pan. Bake, rotating the pan once, until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center of the cakes comes out clean, about 30 minutes.
    Remove the cakes from the oven and cool completely.
    Using a palette knife or rubber, spread some of the frosting all over the tops of the cakes and decorate with the sprinkles.

    Cream Cheese Frosting
    8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
    2 3/4 cups confectioners’ sugar
    2 teaspoons heavy cream, at room temperature
    3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1/4 teaspoon grated orange zest

    In a standing mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, or with a hand-held electric mixer in a large bowl, mix the cream cheese and sugar on low speed until incorporated. Increase the speed to high, and mix until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. (Occasionally turn the mixer off, and scrape the down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula.)
    Reduce the speed of the mixer to low. Add the heavy cream, vanilla, and zest. Raise the speed to high and mix briefly until fluffy (scrape down the bowl occasionally). Store in the refrigerator until somewhat stiff, before using. May be stored in the refrigerator for 3 days.
    Yield: about 1 2/3 cups, enough for 12 cupcakes

    SCAREDY CATS

    You will need a polaroid or digital camera for this one. Have each party guest lie on a couch upside down, with their head hanging off the edge and legs up over the back.

    Comb through their hair to make it look wild and scary. You can even black out a tooth or add some crazy make-up to enhance the final effect.

    Get down level with the child’s face and tell them to look frightened. Take a picture. Turn the picture right side up and you have a "scaredy cat" picture of each guest.

    Add a caption like: "Which witch scared Amy?" or "Did your ghoul friend scare you?" These pictures make great party favors.

    SPOOKY GHOST BATH

    This fun "trick" makes winding down after partytime a cinch. Kids love candles, flashlights, and other small lights they can hold.

    Wrap a glowstick in orange tissue paper and tie each end with black curling ribbon. Include this verse on a bit of paper cut with fancy-edge scissors:

    "When all the tricks and treats are done,
    it’s time for one last bit of fun.,
    Turn out the lights, fill up your tub,,
    and use this spooky candle while you scrub-a-dub."

    Tuck a "spooky ghost bath" glowstick and poem in each child’s goodie bag.

  • Elaine S says:

    Cupcakes with orange frosting decorated with black spiderwebs. Gummy worms. M&M’s, lots of bowls around filled with candy.

    WE always dunked for apples and that was a lot of fun….

    Nachos: cheese in a crock pot, chips, jalapenos.

    Hot dogs: easily kept warm in a crock pot, have buns, and a variety of condiments, mustard, ketchup, relish, onions.

    A big pot of chili beans, with cheese and onion for toppings.

    Have lots of soda’s, bottle water, and maybe a Halloween punch in a black cauldron.

    Ask your teens for suggestions.

    If its a boy/girl party, they won’t be that interested in the food, they’ll be interested in each other.

    Have fun, we always had the parties at our house that way we knew are kids were safe. If it’s a large group you might ask some of the other parents to come help supervise, help serve food and keeps food item replenished. It’s a nice way to get to know the parents of the kids yours are hanging out with.

    Have fun and trick or treat….
