21 Spooky Eats Perfect for Halloween

This week’s SWAT inspired both sweet and savory recipes with scary twists

With Halloween just a few weeks away, our Culinary Content Network of food bloggers are gearing up for the festive holiday party season.

At The Daily Meal, we are getting into the spirit, too, and so for this week’s SWAT (Sharing With A Theme), we asked our food bloggers to share some of their favorite treats for Halloween.

The submissions poured in and our inboxes were teeming with fun recipes and creative ways to transform normal, everyday food and desserts into Halloween-themed super treats and savory eats.   

Stay tuned for the ultimate Halloween cookie round-up coming next week, but first, we have savory and sweet snacks that would take any Halloween party — for kids and/or adults — above and beyond.

Lastly, SWAT has traditionally been a recipe competition (one that we’ve decidedly ignored the past few months due to how impossible it was to pick winners!). Nevertheless, to kick off this round-up, here are our three favorite Halloween recipes of the week:

Chocolate Covered Halloween Pretzels

Red Velvet "Vampire Bite" Cupcakes

Pumpkin Marshmallow Popcorn Balls
