Halloween is right around the corner. It is finally time set up the decorative spider webs, stock up on candy, and get your costume ready for this year. An essential part of every Halloween party is the festive hors d’oeuvres that guests bring. Rather than being the person who brings the “bobbing for apples” game as their party favor (yes.. people still do this), we found a few dishes searching the internet that we think will “scare” the competition away!
The first dish is called “Silly Monster Shrimp” from the Savvy Saving Couple. From a children’s costume party to an adult get-together, this shrimp and cheese combo will be a big hit! The ingredients are as simple as breaded butterfly shrimp, mozzarella cheese, black olives, and green peppers.

The second dish we recommend is steak bites with Bloody Mary dipping sauce. This fall dish combines the elegance of a steak meal with the convenience of finger food. All you need is beef sirloin, bamboo skewers, and Bloody Mary dipping sauce (21+ is advised).

Our last dish we recommend is a little more complex, but we assure you, this is a special one. Pumpkin crab cakes are sweet “treats” that are perfect for the fall festivities and will sure be the talk of the night as they put a unique twist on a traditional seafood favorite.

If you try one of these delicious appetizers, be warned! The only thing scarier than how amazing these dishes taste, is how quickly they will disappear off your plate!
