‘Startle’ your guests with how cute and delicious these fun Halloween Party Appetizers are! Riceworks provide the perfect base to create a spooky array of treats that your friends are sure to love. Read on to find some wickedly delicious recipes for your next party.
1. Spooky Snack Station
This spooky snack station will have your guests coming back for seconds. To create this scary-good treat, start by carving jack o’lantern faces into bell peppers, fill them with your dip of choice (we used dill dip), and top with a variety of veggie sticks! We paired ours with Sweet Chili Riceworks to add a little spice.
2. Funny Face Plates
This recipe is great for kids! Grab your favorite dip (we used gluten-free french onion dip and dill dip), a bag of Riceworks, and veggies to create a monster face. Do it yourself or encourage the little-ones work their artistic magic and make a creature from their imagination. Add sliced olives for eyes and let them dip away! We used Sea Salt Riceworks to create the perfect balance of flavor.
3. Gluten-Free Sweet Chili Pumpkin Cheese Ball
Impress your guests with this completely gluten-free and adorable cheese ball!
You will need:
- 16 oz brick cream cheese (light or regular), softened
- Handful shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 teaspoon each of the following herbs/spices: dried chives, dried dill weed, dried parsley, garlic powder, onion powder, salt
Mix all of these ingredients in a bowl and form into a large ball. We recommend refrigerating for 15-30 mins if it is too soft. Once your “pumpkin” is ready, crush up a couple handfuls of Sweet Chili Riceworks and roll your cheese ball over them until evenly coated. Add a bell pepper stem on top and serve with your favorite Riceworks!
4. Franken-Guac Cups
This recipe is so simple, even Frankenstein could make it! Simply draw franken-faces on clear cups or glasses, fill with guacamole, and top with Wild Sea Salt & Black Sesame Riceworks!
5. Mummified Baked Brie
‘Nomummy’ will be able to resist this party snack! To create this adorable recipe, you will want to start off by wrapping a wheel of brie in overlapping strips of gluten-free crescent dough to look like mummy bandages. Brush with egg wash, and bake at 400 degrees until warm and gooey. Top with two mini pepperoni slices (or pimiento peppers if you’re gluten-free), and two sliced olives for eyes. To top it all off, serve with Wild Black Japonica Riceworks.
6. Creepy Crudites + Crisps
Is your stomach growling yet? So is ours. This recipe is the perfect mix of crunchy and spicy. You will want to set out glasses full of rainbow veggies of your choice and your favorite Riceworks (we paired them with Sundried Tomato Riceworks). Serve with Spicy Red Pepper Hummus and watch your guests enjoy your ‘boo-tiful’ creation.
