6 Halloween Movie and Food Pairings for a Spooktacular Party

The fall is a wonderful season for many activities, including apple picking (and baking with the fruits of your labor), pumpkin carving and jumping into piles of leaves, but none of them compare to Halloween. The spooky holiday is filled with endless candy, silly costumes and — best of all — Halloween movies.

The whole year leading up to October is basically a countdown to watching Hocus Pocus, The Nightmare Before Christmas and slasher flicks like Halloween. To celebrate, grab some friends, queue up your favorite films and pair them with witches’ brews and eye-popping recipes that are ghouled enough for any Monster Mash.

Hocus Pocus: Witches’ Brew

Don’t let your party run amuck, amuck, amuck! Instead, embrace your inner Sanderson sister with a bewitching punch or one of our other Hocus Pocus party ideas.

Halloween: Mini Open-Faced Steak Sandwiches

A bloody good sandwich can liven up any party. Bobby Flay’s steak recipe is tasty enough to be someone’s last meal before getting axed by Michael Myers, and the garlic can help ward off vampires while you’re at it.

Beetlejuice: Chocolate Boo Goo Apples

If you chant “caramel apples” three times, these ghostly treats may appear. Try striping the marshmallows with chocolate to make it look like Beetlejuice is on top of your dessert.

The Nightmare Before Christmas: Mustard-Glazed Baked Ham and Pimento Cheese Biscuits

Combine the festivities of Halloween and Christmas with bright orange pimento cheese and mustard-glazed baked ham. It’s much tastier than frog’s breath.

It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown: Nacho Jack-o’-Lantern Cheese Ball

This is nacho average appetizer. Instead of arguing about the Great Pumpkin’s existence like Linus and Charlie Brown, just sit back and dig into a giant cheese ball.

The Addams Family: Butternut Squash and Apple Soup

It’s a double whammy with orange butternut squash soup topped with a creepy olive “eye.” After all, you always have to “start with the eyes” at an Addams Family dinner party.
