Halloween is just around the corner and if you're looking for Halloween potluck foods, you have come to the right place! I have rounded up these easy Halloween food ideas from my fellow food bloggers, including both sweet and savory recipes! I have everything from appetizers to Halloween desserts for your next party.
If you're looking for a spooky treat or scary food recipes for your next Halloween party, these Halloween Potluck recipes include a lot of finger foods, so they are easy to serve at a potluck. And all of these fun Halloween-themed recipes are transportable so getting them there is just as easy! Although these recipes are especially popular during the Halloween season, they are also great any time of year for a horror movie marathon or themed party.
If you're looking for the PERFECT party drink to accompany your Halloween party food, try my Melting Witch Halloween Punch (non-alcoholic)!
If you are transporting Halloween potluck foods to a party, you'll likely need a cake and cupcake carrier , a trifle bowl with a lid or a large multi-purpose container. If you are bringing pasta salad (or any salad) to a potluck, this bowl (with lid and built-in utensils) is ideal! (affiliate links)
Or if you are hosting a Halloween potluck party, you'll want to create a spooky ambiance with some decorations (see below)),a table cloth and serving platters. And if you are making the Melting Witch Halloween punch (see photo below) you'll need a punch bowl.
If you need black food coloring, I recommend Americolor super black gel paste food color (affiliate link). It's more potent, so it creates a dark color a lot quicker and you'll use a lot less of it.
A great way to transport a dish you don't want sliding, slipping, or tipping, is to place it in a large rectangular plastic container on non-slip rug pad underlay liner (affiliate link), then place bath towels around the dish (to further prevent slipping or tipping).
Check individual recipes for storage instructions. If refrigeration is required, store food in an airtight container in the fridge. If you are only storing the item for a short period of time (or for transport purposes) you can cover with some plastic wrap. I do recommend Glad Press n' Seal (affiliate link), however, because it is thicker and creates a stronger seal.
👪 Serving Size
Many of these recipes have adjustable servings in the recipe card so you can half, double or triple the recipe by clicking on the serving number and selecting the number of servings you'd like. The ingredient quantities automatically adjust.
- Do not use the same utensils on cooked food, that previously touched raw meat
