These olive adorned mini quiches look a little…undead. Perfect for Halloween! A little over two hours total cooking time will yield you 20 minis. (Better Homes and Gardens)
Every party deserves a cheese ball, and we’re not just talking about your nerdy aunt. Filled with cheeses, garlic, onion, pimiento, and spices, this one has a savory kick while also (obviously) being awesomely festive. Rolled in crushed blue tortilla chips, this grinning cat is surprisingly easy to pull off, you’ll just need ample time to prepare and execute (a little over five hours). (Better Homes and Garden)
This is an easy and cheap way to get festive with your apps. Plus, this one definitely won’t scare the kiddos. To make, use mini Halloween-theme cookie cutters to cut out pieces of cheese and meat. Place cutouts on top of various crackers, along with lettuce leaves; use olive pieces to decorate the faces. (Better Homes and Gardens)
With just a little patience and enough time to practice, you can create this spiderweb in your soup with milk and sour cream. Cute and… yum! (Better Homes and Gardens)
We know… this one is a little gross. But so good! And delicious too. Created with red pepper “veins” and plenty of flavors, guests won’t be scared to keep eating once they taste it. It’s quick to make but needs five hours to chill, so give yourself ample time. (Better Homes and Gardens)
