Halloween is just around the corner and chances are you’ve been invited to quite a few costume parties, you lucky dog. We hope you’ve picked out the perfect costume, but there’s one other element you can’t forget when showing up to the party...a snack for sharing!
If you’re looking for some yummy yet spooky vegan Halloween recipes, then you’ve come to the right place. This week, we’ve gathered the cutest and scariest Halloween foods ideas that you need to share with your ghost and goblin friends. The best part is, no animals were harmed in the making of these recipes (not even the stuffed eyeballs)!
Trick your friends into eating their nutrients with these festive treats.
1. Ghoulish Black Bean Hummus
Can’t choose between bean dip or hummus? Why not go with a brilliant marriage of both flavors? This ghoulish black bean hummus dip is one for the record books; the dark color alone will attract guests to try it.
Serve with some pita chips and veggie sticks and watch it be devoured! Serve in a carved out pumpkin or plastic cauldron if you’re really feeling the Halloween spirit.
2. Halloween Apple Bites
Need a quick and easy recipe with only three ingredients? Check out these silly monster smiles made from apple slices, nut butter, and jam.
If you have kids, this is a fun and easy way to get them involved. They’ll have a blast inserting the apple “teeth” into the monster’s mouth! Use your creativity and blow your party guests away.
3. Sweet Pumpkin Buns
These picture-perfect, sweet pumpkin buns are perfect not only for Halloween but Thanksgiving too. If you’re looking for the perfect centerpiece for your next dinner party, look no further. We think the cinnamon stick for the stem of the pumpkin is genius.
These sweet buns are delicious smeared with a little vegan butter or cashew cream cheese and paired with a nice a cup of coffee. Have them for breakfast, as a snack, or dessert---we won’t judge! Thanksgiving brunch, anyone?
4. Frankenstein Brown Rice Krispie Treats
These Frankenstein brown rice Krispie treats are probably the most fun recipe here. We love that they're on a popsicle stick to avoid our hands from getting sticky.
Grab some brown rice cereal, vegan marshmallows, and vegan dark chocolate and have a blast crafting your own Frankenstein’s monster. Your kids will love playing around with the decorative features.
5. Stuffed Mushroom Eyeballs
Don’t worry; these aren’t real eyeballs! This freakishly delicious recipe will definitely win you some points at your next Halloween party. Double points if your costume goes along with the plated eyeballs.
Stuff button mushrooms with a yummy, vegan tofu-ricotta mixture and top with a sliver of black olive for the iris. Want to go gory? Add thinly sliced dried tomatoes for the veins, and you’ve got yourself one creepy yet delicious snack.
6. Mummydilla Polenta Bites (Mummy Quesadillas)
The kid in us wants to devour an entire tray of these little polenta bites. This recipe is simple to make and turns out to be oh-so-cute you simply have to make them. All you need is polenta, vegan cheese slices, black beans, and salsa.
Feeling pizza instead of a quesadilla? Swap the salsa for tomato sauce and the vegan cheese for vegan mozzarella, and you have yourself a vegan mummy pizza bite!
7. Graveyard Taco Cups
How cute are these individual servings of chips and dip?! This show-stopping recipe is quite simple to make and makes a perfect party snack.
Trying to figure out where they got chips in the shapes of trees and tombstones? You make it using flatbread pizza dough! You’ll want to grab a Halloween cookie cutter (or a knife and paper stencil) to get the chips in these fun shapes.
This is such a fun project to do with kids and way healthier than baking cookies! This recipe is great because you can apply the idea of a graveyard cup to anything like bean dip, guac, hummus, or even chocolate mousse topped with Orea “dirt.”
8. Vegan Ghost Cupcakes
We’re not sure how ‘scary’ these ghosts are, but they sure are adorable. Win over your friends and family by showing that vegan can be yummy and sinful too, all without animal products.
If you’ve never experimented with vegan marshmallow fluff, now is a perfect time! It’s so easy to use and overly delicious. Throw some in a Ziplock bag, cut the tip and ice your cupcakes without the mess! We won’t tell anyone if you use the extra for a peanut butter and fluff sandwich.
9. Witchy Guacamole Dip
No party is complete without a huge bowl of guacamole. Upgrade your recipe by transforming your dip into a witch!
It’s time to get creative with your veggies when plating this dip. Need some inspiration? Trying using shredded carrots for her hair, olives for her eyes, fresh red bell pepper for her lips, a pickle for her nose, and black tortilla chips for her hat. This is another great recipe to make with the kids.
Are You Feeling the Fall Spirit?
Before you know it, November will be here, which means its time to start thinking about Thanksgiving!
We know it might be a sore subject for most vegans, but we’ve designed the perfect Vegan Thanksgiving dinner that you can cook, serve, or pack ensuring you have a wonderful holiday.
