Heartier Halloween Party Food Ideas for Kids- Mealtime

You can make most of these things ahead, and either warm them up, or serve at room temperature. Remember, nothing is stopping you from ordering cheese pizza, and scattering some pepperoni or veggies on it yourself in a Jack o Lantern shape.

Sausage Mummies– you will need little sausages and a tube of crescent roll dough. Cut the dough into thin strip, a few inches long. Wrap the sausages up, bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Serve with ketchup.

Pizza Faces– Some pizza places make pizza with a Jack-o-Lantern face. You can also let the kids make mini pizzas on boboli crusts, pita bread or english muffins. Supply pizza sauce, cheese, pepperoini slices, and maybe a few veggies… let them have fun creating their own.

Snake Sandwich– Get a long baguette and slice it horizontally. Layer on the fillings you think they will eat… turkey or ham is usually a good bet…I’d hold back on the condiments and serve them separately. Slice into 3 inch lengths… then lay the segments like they are a wavy snake on a serving platter. Stick some olives on for eyes… and maybe a strip of tomato for the tongue.

Halloween Macaroni and Cheese  or Pasta Salad with Seasonal Pasta

Cupcakes are easy ( you can buy them, or decorate them yourself). Make a box cake mix and decorated it simply with Peeps. I once made Vanilla Pudding, and dyed it GREEN! It’s all good.
