6 Spook-tacular Recipes for A Halloween Dinner Party

Today is the day for the supper club’s menu reveal, and I’m absolutely thrilled to have been a guest at their table this month. Each of us prepared a dish to share, and let me tell you, it’s unbelievably delicious!

Our theme this month was an “ Adult Halloween Party.”

We all created a tablescape to go with our theme, and they were all so creative.

What was on our Menu?

Appetizer and Drinks

Michele @vintagehomedesigns made a “Pumpkin Apple Cider Sangria”, and boy, was it delicious. The perfect mix of citrus and spices with a yummy cinnamon-spiced rim. Not only does this drink taste refreshing, but it looks spectacular on the table.

While we enjoyed our sangria, we nibbled on this delicious “Everything Bagel Pumpkin-Shaped Cheese Ball” made by Jen @midwestlifeandstyle.

This appetizer was so pretty, I hated to break into it, but you won’t be sorry you did.

Main Course

For as long as I can remember, we have served a large pot of chili on Halloween. It is the perfect dish to have ready for whoever would be stopping by, and we were always prepared.

This year we are serving “Healthy Pumpkin Chili” prepared by @ simply2moms. I love how they serve the chili in a pumpkin, it looks so pretty on the plate.

Side Dishes

Rachel @thepondsfarmhouse made these delicious “Sweet Potato Bake With A Sweet and Salty Twist”. Don’t they look delicious? I will be repeating this one again as I love sweet potatoes.

I made these “Smoked Brussels Sprouts with Maple Bacon,” and I promise they will not disappoint. It is the perfect mix of sweet and tangy with dates and a balsamic drizzle.

I have the biggest sweet tooth, and I always look forward to dessert. My friend Stacy made “Mouthwatering Pumpkin Dump Cake,” which is so good. I don’t know about you, but I love any dish with pumpkin, especially this time of the year.
