Halloween Party Treats to Die For...

Halloween Party Treats to Die For...

Halloween is one of Confetti Betti's very favorite holidays. From front porch spider web installs to party goods, we want to celebrate everything spooky ALL. MONTH. LONG. To help you get in the spirit we wanted to share some of our favorite Halloween party recipes and treats. Ready to hop to the cauldron and whip up something ghostly?! 

Spooky Worm Punch

Spooky Worm Punch

Shopping List of Ingredients:

  • 1 gallon green punch (we used Kool Aid)
  • 1 medium sized piece of dry ice
  • Assorted gummy worms

Directions:

First, let’s talk about dry ice. This is such a fun treat for Halloween, and kids and adults alike will be thrilled by the smoky special effects. That said, it can be tricky to find at the store and also dangerous to handle, so we recommend extreme caution when using it! You can purchase dry ice by doing an internet search for stores that sell it in your area. Penguin brand ice makes it and sells it at many grocery stores. They have a zip code locater you can use to find the closest vendor to you! Always use gloves when handling dry ice and keep the fancy glass punch bowls for another day….we recommend heavy-duty plastic or metal.
To make this spooky punch, simply add your favorite green punch to a large bowl (this can also be done as a cocktail- so get wild witches)! Drop in some gummy worms (or set them in a dish to the side for guests to add themselves). You can either carefully use tongs to place a small piece of dry ice in each cup or place the punch bowl in a larger container (we used a large decorative Halloween cauldron), and place chunks of the dry ice around the outside of the inner bowl. Then carefully add a little bit of warm water and watch the spooky mist start to appear! You can refresh with a little more warm water throughout the party. 
Note, if you place the dry ice directly in the cup, we recommend using a straw so guests don’t accidentally touch or swallow it!

Candy Corn Parfaits

Candy Corn Parfaits

Shopping List of Ingredients:

  • 1 pineapple
  • 6 mandarin/cutie/clementine oranges
  • 1 container of whipped cream
  • 1 bag of candy corn candies
  • 8-10 clear punch cups

Directions:

Cut your pineapple into bite-sized chunks and place at the bottom of each clear punch cup. Then peel and separate each orange. We used a clementine, but you can use any type of small orange slice! Place the oranges on top of the pineapple.

Top the fruit cup with a swirl of whipped cream and candy corn and serve chilled!

Jack-o-Lantern Stuffed Peppers

Jack-o-Lantern Stuffed Peppers

Shopping List of Ingredients:

  • 6 orange bell peppers
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 rotisserie chicken
  • ½ cup of chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder (optional)
  • 1 can of black beans (strained and rinsed)
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Directions:

Cut off the top of each bell pepper. Remove seeds and rinse. Place peppers in a pot of boiling water for 2-3 minutes. Remove from water and set aside to cool.

Remove as much chicken as you can from the rotisserie chicken. Shred with a fork and knife. In a medium skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add shredded chicken. Add chicken broth and then season with chili powder (optional). Simmer for 2-3 minutes. Drain and rinse the black beans and add to the chicken mixture. Let simmer for 5 minutes and then add the cheese. Stir until melted and remove from heat. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Carefully cut the Jack-o-Lantern faces into each bell pepper but remove three small triangles to make the eyes and nose. Spoon the chicken mixture into each pepper. Top with some more cheddar cheese if you like and enjoy!

Char-BOO-terie

Shopping List of Ingredients:

Directions:

Grab your favorite charcuterie board- even better if you have a cute coffin-shaped one or something like our Trick or Treat bamboo tray. Then just HAVE FUN! We like to place our larger items first as sort of anchors around the board. Throw some candy eyeballs on your store-bought plain jane cupcakes, place the brain on the board, and arrange your cookies and any other larger items you might have. Then, fill in the gaps with your smaller candies. We kept ours organized by type of candy (can't have the eyeballs in with the teeth after all), but you do you!
