If you’re looking for ideas to make your Halloween party festive and fun, you’ll find more than 38 easy recipes that are delicious and perfect for the harvest season.

Having now spent more years than I want to count hosting Halloween parties, friends, and trick-or-treaters, I take a cue from my mother. On October 31, you will always find a simmering pot of chili (stovetop, Instant Pot, or slow cooker), skillet cornbread, platters of veggies and dip, and always, always, donuts. Donuts are an absolute must!

Halloween Recipes: Appetizers

To get the party started and keep the trick-or-treaters satisfied, we have ideas for Halloween appetizers like 10 Minute Halloween 7 Layer Dip or Roasted Pumpkin Hummus you can serve with pita chips or healthy veggies (more ideas for nourishing treats on our Healthy Halloween Treats post), or 5 Minute Fall Crack.

Halloween Recipes: Entrees

While party guests often want to rush for the treats, and trick-or-treaters are ready to head out the door with a few bites of Halloween candy, entice them with a hearty and delicious meal like Easy Pumpkin Turkey Chili or Vegetarian Chili. And if chili isn’t their thing, try Pumpkin Mac and Cheese for a festive meal.

Halloween Recipes: Treats

I’m pretty sure you’re also here to find Halloween treat ideas that are easy and super festive. If you love spooky ideas, see Easy, Fun and Spooky Halloween Treats, or try the not-so-spooky but super cute, fun, and easy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Spider Cookies featuring my all-time favorite Halloween candy… peanut butter cups! And… Halloween Monster Cookies are always a favorite.

Other treats you may also love are the perfectly themed Chocolate Swirl Pumpkin Bread (orange and black) that’s delicious, moist, and tender- or something completely different like an easy Maple Apple Cinnamon Roll Monkey Bread!
