Fun Halloween Ideas |

I’m not a big fan of Halloween. There I’ve said it. Though I have gone to a few parties in the last several years, it’s just not my thing. I hate dressing up and the thought of going house to house begging for candy that will be either be given or thrown away because my children cannot possibly eat it all seems like such a waste to me.

Maybe because I’m not big on candy in the first place. But, with Halloween looming around the corner, I thought I’d share some Halloween party food ideas with you.

Here are just some fun Halloween ideas that caught my eye on Pinterest, but click HERE to see all of my finds!

Course: Dessert
Servings: 6

  • 3 in Bananas, peeled and cut half horizontally
  • 6 in Lollipop Sticks, or you can use wooden skewers cut half
  • 2 c . White Chocolate
  • M Mini M&M Candies, for eyes
  • Oil, if needed
  1. Cut the bananas in half horizontally, place the stick in the bottom and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Freeze for 2 hours or until the bananas are solid.
  2. Melt the chocolate according to package directions. If it's too thick, gradually add a little oil (1 tbsp. at a time) until it thins out.
  3. Remove the bananas from the freezer, dip in the chocolate until all sides are coated and place two M&M's of the same color for the eyes near the top. Place back on the parchment paper until all six bananas have been coated.
  4. Drizzle lines across the bananas so that they look like bandages. (I used a kitchen teaspoon, but a squirt bottle or pastry bag with fine tip would work better).

    Thanks for the feature, Carrie! I only enjoy Halloween b/c Alex does so much. If it weren’t for him, I’d be the grumpy lady inside the dark house hiding from trick or treaters. LOL

    Thanks so much for including my pumpkin martini! I rather like autumn a bit more than Halloween but they go together in a big wonderful orange season. 🙂
