Halloween Party Appetizers ~ These Halloween appetizers are as creative as the costumes you will seen on the spooky night {and they are kid approved} 👻 ... these sweet and savory Halloween party food ideas include mummy-wrapped finger food and monstrous cheese balls just to name a few!

Nothing says fall like a plate of mini pumpkins! Made with spiced pumpkin bread and decadent cream cheese frosting, these party treats taste as good as they look. If you've got a steady hand, spook up these Halloween snacks by turning them into jack-o'-lanterns. Recipe

Wrap a legion of scary mummies for a Halloween dinner or party appetizer. To make, skewer a purchased meatball and a 4-inch piece of summer sausage stick with a 6-inch wooden skewer. Combine 8 ounces cream cheese and 1 teaspoon purchased pesto. Spread some of the mixture over the meat skewer and wrap with cooked fettuccine noodles. For a more bulky body, spread with additional cream cheese mixture and wrap with another layer of cooked fettuccine. Add capers for eyes. Serve with pasta sauce for dipping, and these Halloween finger foods will be gone in no time.

Scare up some fun with these spooky poison-apple candies. Green apple gum balls get the Halloween sweet treatment with a drizzle of black icing and licorice for a treat that's almost too spooky to eat. Recipe
