Pumpkin Carving Party Appetizer Menu

When planning a party that revolves around an activity, like pumpkin carving, or decorating gingerbread houses, it's best to opt for a variety of smaller party appitizers and small plates. This enables people to eat while they work, and at their leisure, so people can break for food whenever it is most convenient for them. We've put together an array of easy-to-make Halloween appetizers for you to pick and choose from for your fete — or ask your guests to each bring a dish.



Candy Corn Cocktail

The classic Halloween candy is turned into a fun cocktail.



Maple Pecan Popcorn

Add the nuts after you add the syrup to the popcorn; they will adhere better.


Spiced Party Mix

Instead of plain, salted nuts, whip up this mix with pretzels and nuts and a kick of spice.


Chipotle Deviled Eggs

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Since you're carving pumpkins, why not save the seeds and roast them for an easy, healthy snack.
