Halloween Recipes for Snacking While Handing Out Treats

As soon as the kids get home from school it’s full speed ahead on Halloween night. You’ll want the family to eat dinner before the sugar storm, but it’s not always easy on this fast paced night. Try having dinner as you graze throughout the evening with these make-ahead snack recipes. As you gather with neighbors at the end of the driveway to celebrate this spooky holiday you must have something to snack on other than Halloween candy. Here are some of my favorite recipes for your snacking adventure whether it be on Halloween night with the neighbors or added to the menu of a festive costume party.

If you’re carving pumpkins don’t throw away those seeds! You’ll love these Roasted Pumpkin Seeds as a snack, but you’ll also enjoy them in salads and on top of soup!

You won’t be able to stop at one handful of this Manchego Truffle Popcorn. It’s that good!
