We love October! With it comes a slight chill in the weather that brings a crispness to the air and the fall foliage color we all look forward to. October also brings Halloween, our favorite holiday of the year because we don’t have to make a big holiday meal or buy presents, and we get to dress up in scary costumes and eat as much candy as we want!
Treat your favorite tricksters to delightful and delicious Halloween party foods that everyone will enjoy, such as Graveyard Smash, Whose Fingers Are Those?, Scary Centipizza, Critters Cracker Snack, Witches Warts, Dare You to Dip into these Body Parts, Mummy’s Tombs, Graveyard Gravel, Bucket of Bleached Bones, Terrifying Tarantulas, Bloody Massacre Martinis and My Punch Is Staring At Me! You’ll have a Halloween party spread your guests will be talking about for years to come!
Check out the Bloody Massacre Martinis recipe below and keep your eyes on the San Jose Easy Meals Examiner page throughout October for the rest of the above Halloween party recipes and more! And remember to visit our local Cash and Carry and/or Smart and Final stores for great bargains on groceries, utensils and everything else you need to throw a haunting Halloween party!
