Super-spooky Halloween recipes with cheese!

Looking for party food inspiration for your Halloween get-together, or for an exciting themed meal with the kids? Look no further! We’ve put together some of our favourite spooky creations for this year’s holiday! Trick or Treat? These are definitely all treat!


Mac ‘n’ Cheese Stuffed Squash

This recipe by Honestly Yum is not only the perfect winter warmer but resembles that of the Halloween pumpkin! Why not combine a true American favourite with sweet acorn squash to create an exciting holiday-themed dinner? Sharp cheddar gorgeously compliments the sweetness of the squash, so this is not only a Halloween treat, but perhaps one for the dinner party too!

Jalapeno Popper Mummies

Turn up the heat with these impressive Jalapeno Popper Mummies by The Hopeless Housewife! These little cuties are sure to look great at your Halloween party, with shredded jack cheese and buttery crescent roll wrapping complimenting fiery jalapeno! Will you be adding these to your spooky spread?

Cheesy Halloween Breadstick Bones

A slight variation to doughy breadsticks can make this staple party spread item a whole lot spookier! Roll out into a long log and simply part each end with scissors to create Halloween bones! Complete with a marinara sauce dip (blood!) and you’ve got yourself holiday-themed treats at no extra effort! What a creative recipe from Just A Taste!

Quesadilla Mummies

Get the kids involved in making their own Halloween dinner with these fun and cheesy Quesadilla Mummies from Kids Activities Blog! Cut the second tortilla into strips so they can ‘wrap’ their mummy, and get creative when it comes to making the eyes! These are also fun to fill, the kids adding in their favorite fillings from cheese to chicken – they may be more inclined to let you sneak some veg in too!

Pumpkin Cheesy Bacon Spinach Dip

A holiday spread isn’t complete without a tasty dip! This recipe from Let’s Dish has the extra appeal of being served in a pumpkin for a seasonal touch too! The main ingredients of gruyere cheese, parmesan, sour cream and spinach mean the dip suits as an accompaniment to any other spooky savory treat, not to mention it’s topped with crispy bacon!

Pumpkin Shaped Cheese Ball

If the seasonal food, pumpkin, isn’t quite up your street, this cheese ball from Mikey’s In My Kitchen is sure to be! Made with a mixture of cream and cheddar cheese, cumin, jalapeno, salsa and onion, the ball concoction is covered in crushed cheese chips to give it its orange colour, and topped with the stalk of a green bell pepper to create that final pumpkin look!
