Throw a Scary Good Soiree

Who says Halloween is just for kids? If you’re looking to host an adults-only Halloween bash this year, spook your guests with these bewitchingly delicious recipes featuring some grown-up twists on classic favorites.

Pumpkin Cheesecake Truffle Mummies: You’ll definitely want to unwrap these no-bake truffle mummies. Easy to make, delicious and perfect for Halloween parties!

Mummy Brie: Thanks to puff pastry, your basic baked brie becomes a totally spooky Halloween appetizer.

Roasted Pumpkin Seed Hummus: Fall is the season to infuse everything with pumpkin, including hummus.

Melted Witch Chocolate Chip Cream Cheese Fruit Dip: Boil those witches down to the ground. This super easy dip is perfect for your Halloween Party.

Sugar-and-Spice Caramel Popcorn: Sugar, and spice, and yes it is everything nice. It’s the perfect savory balance for the sweet caramel.

Savory Pumpkin Puffs: A cheesy Halloween pastry is eerily easy to prepare. All you need are sheets of frozen puff pastry and some savory seasonings.

Cinnamon-Cider Candied Apples: Apple cider, Red Hots candies, and brandy provide a perfect, bloody coating.

The kids can keep the candy—treat the grown-ups to one of these fiendishly good spirits:

Witches’ Brew: This powerful potion will cast a spell on you with its sweet-tart mix of pineapple and cranberry juice, bubbly 7-Up and splash of coconut rum.

Sweet Poison Cocktail: This fruity, Hawaiian-esque cocktail has pineapple juice, coconut rum and Blue Curacao. The color alone is scary.

Caramel Apple Punch: Grab a cauldron. You only need four ingredients—apple cider, spiced rum, lemon juice, and sliced apple.

Zombie Cocktail: This drink is deceptively potent, thanks to the shot of Bacardi 151 run floating on top.

Jack-O’-Lantern Cocktail: Cognac, Grand Marnier and orange juice give this sweet sip an unexpected kick.

Candy Corn Jello Shots: On Halloween, everything should be candy inspired.

Poison Apple Cocktail: This vibrant green concoction has just the right amount of sweet and sour to please any wicked (or not-so-wicked) witch.

Save this sweet tip for after the hunt: Leftover Halloween Candy Cake: Definitely the best way to re-purpose your kid’s loot.
