Halloween Recipe Roundup

From spooky to cute, sweet and savory, this festive Halloween Recipe Roundup has an extensive list of ideas to celebrate one of my favorite holidays.

Halloween Recipe Roundup

IDK about you, but Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, if not my favorite. But sadly, despite busting out all my Halloween decor every year it’s been a hot minute since I’ve actually dressed up. No one I know has parties anymore and it hadn’t occurred to me to dress up to hand out candy even though I remember my dad doing that when we were kids.

This year I was going to change that oversight and was excited to see it was on the weekend when I will actually be in town. But I forgot that whenever Halloween lands on a weekend, my neighborhood moves trick-or-treat to Thursday and I won’t be home that evening to partake. Super lame.

Instead I decided to roundup a list of all my Halloween recipes to share. Somehow despite making roudup lists for pretty much every other holiday and occasion I had yet to make one exclusively for Halloween. I love hoe creative you can get for this holiday, almost anything goes! I’ve got plenty of cute and creepy recipes and even some savory to break up the sweet.
