Everything You Need To Throw A Killer Halloween Party

If you’re looking to throw a monster Halloween bash, we’ve got everything you need to do it up. (Warning: lots of scary puns to follow – sorry and you’re welcome!)

First up, you’ve gotta have some boo-zy cocktails for the adults. For a ghouls night in, none other will do than our favorite friendly ghost, The Casper. Bourbon, spiced pear liqueur, cream and cinnamon, served chilled in a martini glass. Ding dong! Or, if you’re having a coven of vampires over, our Bloody Mary Kit is great for feeding a crowd.

Equally as important are the bites. For some seriously boo-tiful indie snacks, might we suggest Sriracha Cheddar Cheesy Puffs? These are not your typical fake cheese powder-dusted corn balls – Fuller Foods bakes Bob's Red Mill non-GMO corn grits into puffy curls, tosses ‘em in safflower oil and coats them with antibiotic-free Cheddar powder and a hot spice mix. If you’re dressing as a dragon, these fiery puffs are a must-have.

And is everything we love about autumn in a bag: sweet caramel-coated popcorn strewn with crunchy, tangy bits of real apple, a hint of bitterness from toasty walnuts and just a little bit of sea salt to make the flavors pop.

For something with killer crunch, go for Pimiento Cheese Kettle Chips. That sharp Cheddar, sweet-hot pimiento flavor is like an edible memory of backyard barbecues. Put these on a table and let the witches and ghouls flock.

Feeling crafty? Our recipe for Peek-a-Boo PB&J Eyeball Cookies is scary easy to make. PB&J Chocolate Eyeballs + Krista’s Oatmeal Cookie Mix = a terrifyingly tasty treat both adults and kids will enjoy. 

Send guests home with fa-boo-lous favors, full of spirit: spooky sweet Dark Chocolate Jack ‘O Lantern Pops, Día De Muertos Skeleton Chocolate Pops or Milk Chocolate Ghost Pops. Bone appétit.

Not hosting this year? Bring them some boo-ty! Our Tricks ‘N Treats gift bag is full of uniquely tasty, small-batch sweets. If they’re chocolate fiends, surprise them with our Mouth-Made Chocolate Bar Trio set. Or, give ‘em goosebumps with our awesome Candy Land Taster kit. 

Now that’s what we call one scary good party.
