Disgusting Halloween Food Recipes and Ideas For Kids’ Halloween Party
1. Halloween Brain Cake
This disgusting brain cake will sure to be a hit with all your Halloween party trick or treaters! Use a brain cake mold with your favorite cake mix. Then, instead of icing, baste on strawberry or cherry glaze to make a gooey, bloody brain.
(If you want to be super, duper gross, fill the brain cake recipe with glaze or cherry filling inside so that when you cut into the cake made of brains the blood oozes out for one of those super creepy Halloween food ideas. You’re welcome.)
If you’re looking for Halloween food ideas scary, this one is right up there on the Halloween list!
2. Zombie Brain Jello

3. Brain Pops
Let’s just stick with the brain Halloween party theme for a minute, shall we?
To go along with your cake brains and Jello brains, how about some mini brain pops?
You can make your own chocolate brain suckers (any color you want!).
If you really want to go all out on a brain theme, add these brain ice cubes, too!
(Seriously, add zombie food for teenage Halloween party food ideas.)
4. Worms in Buns
My kid looooooved this easy recipe. We made it a Halloween snack just by calling it worms in a bun. (You could also call it guts in skin, if you want to make totally disgusting food names.)
It’s actually spaghetti in a hot dog bun and makes a perfect Halloween party food because it’s easy to pick up and eat. Slice the buns in half or even quarters to make them a more bite-sized appetizer for parties.
5. Edible Hearts Candy
(Just like human hearts, not the Valentine’s hearts!)
To really gross out your kids, plop them in some red jello and make them spoon out the heart chocolates along with the “blood.”
6. Witches Fingers
Looking for Halloween food fingers recipes?
These “witches fingers” are really just apple fries in oven or air fryer.
We served it with caramel dipping sauce, which you can call some awful Halloween food names like witches snot or witches earwax. (MMMMmmm)
7. Skeleton Hands
Make skeleton hand chocolates (get the mold here) that can be placed in a “bowl of bones” or even make them “climbing out” of jello, cakes, and more.
If you’re looking for a full edible skeleton, use this.
8. Skull Candy
I love these skull candy molds because they’re different from traditional skull molds (and kinda gross looking).
Plus, you can make your gross skull in whatever colors you want!
9. Zombie Ice Pops
These super cute zombie ice pops are perfect for a Halloween treat to cool the kids down.
Freeze them with juice or smoothies for a refreshing treat!
Worried about them melting? Stick them head first in a bowl of creepy zombie ice cubes and kids can pull them out by the popsicle handle.
