Halloween Dinner Ideas

My family attended a neighborhood trunk-or-treat Halloween party this weekend.  It was so fun seeing all the kids we attend church with dressed up as their favorite characters.  The nacho bar was really yummy and so was the dessert…as were the candy bars I snuck from my kids’ Halloween bags (;  My favorite part was getting some spooky appetizers and Halloween dinner ideas ready for the party.

We made some creepy witch fingers out of delicious Tyson Any’tizers Ranch Flavored Chicken Fries.  The almond slivers were the perfect fingernails and creeped my kids out for a second.  Ha!

The kids really got a kick out of our Bat Pee (mustard) and Blood (Ketchup) to dip their Witch Fingers and Ogre Thumbs in!  They thought it was funny to eat Eye Balls (Grapes) too! 

 But of course they loved walking car to car for easy candy access!!  Some neighbors went all out and created spooky settings for the kids to walk up to!  The wizard on the left was hooked up to a remote control so he moved back and forth, it was truly creepy and I may or may not have screamed when I was trying to take a picture…

A great idea my brother started was a movie on a projector!  It entertains the little kids when they they’re done trunk-or-treating so they can watch and snack on their goodies while the parents get to chat.  My parents have this mobile popcorn machine too, it’s fast and affordable.  That’s me and my oldest as matching vampires on the left, it was fun to dress up and see my youth from church dressed up too!

Team Hot Rod (love that movie!!) and these cute best friends were matching superheros.  Although they’re all super in my book! (;  And if you’re looking for a cheap take home gift? How about cookies in a mason jar with a cupcake liner for the lid?  Easy peasy!

Check out my shopping trip where I enjoyed all things Halloween!  It’s so fun to shop this time of year, there’s always something interesting to get lost in!!

Be sure to keep up with Tyson on Twitter @TysonFoods and Facebook. Right now you can even play their Tyson Game with Hallowinger on Facebook too!
