Halloween Party ~ Simple Ideas that Rock #TrickUrTreat

I am like a kid that’s never grown up ~ I really enjoy Halloween and everything that’s not too spooky and definitely NOT evil but fun, fun, fun!  My family {thankfully} shares my appetite for making life fun.

There’s no need to stress over having family party fun and with these super simple recipes you can make the party as big or little as you like.  Let me help you streamline the Halloween party process.

I found Scary Monster Tombstone pizzas at Wal-Mart as well as some of our favorite candies {all fun size} ~ Butterfinger bars,  Crunch bars and Nerds.

 Frankenstein is a 4-meat pizza (yummy!)

 The Werewolf is a spooky good Bacon Cheeseburger Pizza

Now I have 3 easy recipes for you ~ 1 for your main course including a salad {this is more of a presentation than a recipe} and 2 dessert recipes PLUS a cute and simple Party Favor.

Halloween Pizza

Halloween Pizza


  • 1 Tombstone Pizza
  • Head of Lettuce
  • Peeled Baby Carrots
  • Broccoli Flowerette


  1. Bake your pizza according to the package directions.
  2. While the pizza is baking rinse and shred your lettuce (or use prepackaged salad).
  3. Place lettuce on round pizza sheet or other round serving dish.
  4. Add broccoli to the center (this is your stem).
  5. Outline pumpkin shape with baby carrots.
  6. Once pizza has baked and cooled cut it into Jack o Lantern face shapes.

My boys gobbled this up in no time.

Now for the Dessert Round ~ First up Butterfinger Brownies ~

Butterfinger Brownies

  2. Roughly chop up Butterfinger bars.
  3. Add the Butterfinger bars to the brownie mix.
  4. Bake according to directions.
  5. Cool thoroughly and use seasonal cookie cutter to cut out spooky shapes.
  6. Frost with orange frosting and decorate with the black and green decorator gel.

Next Up ~ Chocolate Chip Crunch Bars

Last, I have a cute party favor for your guests:

Nerd Potion No. 9

Test tubes ~ I found some plastic ones with cork tops at the craft store.


#TrickUrTreat #shop Nerd Potion Halloween Favors

Place the Nerds into the test tubes {I used 2 boxes for my test tubes}

Use an address label {or printer ~ mine is out of ink} to make up a Nerd Potion No. 9 label.

There you have it in a nutshell ~ A fun Halloween Party complete with a salad, main course, two desserts and a party favor ~ quick and easy!
