From witch finger cheese sticks with a blood marinara dipping sauce to cauldron cupcakes to donut broomstick stacks, a witch Halloween party is the perfect way to celebrate Halloween!
Today I’ve got all sorts of spooky surprises and terrifying treats to share with you as part of our witch Halloween party.
I’m sharing two easy recipes for you that you can pull off in less than 20 minutes, two simple ways to make your drinks look just right for those little goblins and ghouls, and lots of easy treat hacks to save you time and make it easy to throw an amazing Halloween party!
I’ve also got a free printable Halloween party invitation for your Halloween party. Just print, then fill in your party information for guests.
I love how the skull invitation matches the skulls on the tablecloth perfectly. It’s the little things that make me happy!
Grab your brooms and get ready to fly to our witch Halloween party! First you’ll want to gather up as many “witch” supplies as possible. A broom (mine is a cinnamon broom from the store, so double bonus since it smells amazing too!), spooky candles, witch hats, old books (or hollow “fake” books like mine) that can pass as old spell books are the perfect accessories for the party.
I also found some amazing gothic Halloween fabric with glitter skulls and swirls that was perfect for a glam witch party. The backdrop fabric is called “coffin lining.” How perfect is that for a Halloween party? I love all the gathers and lines on it.
I’m absolutely in love with these witch silhouette donut pops. These couldn’t be any easier to make!
I bought the premade icing silhouette shapes, some chocolate donut holes, and some frosting. I used a little bit of frosting to “glue” the icing silhouettes onto the donut holes.
Add a stick and glue gun a tiny silver bow and you’ve got a treat worthy of the best witches! You don’t even have to tell everyone how easy it was to make these. I’ll take your secret to the grave. 😉
In the center of the party table I placed a lovely 3-tiered black serving tray. I love the lacy gothic detail- it looks just perfect for a witch Halloween party.
On the top-tier I stacked chocolate and white powder mini donuts, then placed a candy broomstick in the middle of the stacks.
Two of the stacks have a large sparkly silver 3 and 1 in them, since Halloween is on October 31st.
On the middle tier are some cute little witch hat cookies that I whipped up. These are a cinch too! Just add a bit of frosting on the bottom of a candy Kiss and press it down on a chocolate cookie. Instant witch hat goodness.
On the bottom tier are black baking cups filled with white yogurt covered peanuts and dark chocolate covered macadamia nuts. I topped each cup off with a tiny glitter witch hat.
Witch cauldron cupcakes are another simple witch Halloween party treat. I bought some rubber silicone witch cauldrons and placed a store-bought cupcake right inside. It took me all of about 5 seconds for each cupcake. Can’t beat that!
Black and white swirl suckers were served in a glass apothecary jar, topped with another witch hat.
Kettle corn was served in two witch cauldrons.
I served my favorite apple cider in cute milk glass bottles that I decorated in just a few minutes. I added some spooky Halloween silhouettes to the front of the bottles, and then made some creepy spider straws to go inside.
Here’s how I made them both!
Halloween Milk Glass Bottles Tutorial
- Milk glass bottles (you can buy these or wash and reuse them from drinks from the store)
- Black self-adhesive vinyl
- Die cut machine (optional) or a pencil, paper, and scissors
Step 1. Use a die cut machine to cut out some small Halloween shapes from your black vinyl that will fit on your milk glass bottles.
I used my Sizzix Big Shot and a few Sizzix dies to create four different Halloween shapes- a black cat, a skull and crossbones, an owl, and the numbers 31.
If you don’t have a die cut machine, you can either free hand draw then cut a simple Halloween shape, like a black witch hat or witch silhouette, or you can print one from online, then use it as a template to cut out your vinyl.
Step 2. Peel off the paper backing from the vinyl, and center the Halloween shape onto the front of a glass bottle. Make sure to press down across the whole shape to remove any air bubbles.
Now onto the spooky spider straws to go inside your bottles-
Spooky Spider Straw Tutorial
- Black and white striped straws (or any other Halloween straws)
- Plastic spiders
- Glue gun
Step 1. Heat your glue gun. Add a small dab of glue to the top and bottom of a spider.
Step 2. Carefully press the spider down onto the top portion of the straw (just leave a little room for sipping). Repeat for as many straws as you need.
Aren’t they awesome?! They’re very simple to make, and yet add so much fun to your Halloween drinks and party!
These witch fingers made from mozzarella sticks are my favorite, especially when they’re dipped in a bloody marinara dipping sauce!
To create the spooky witch fingers cheese sticks, I used Farm Rich breaded Mozzarella Sticks that I picked up at Walmart. I also bought some Loaded Potato Skins for the party. I love Farm Rich appetizers and snacks because they’re made with wholesome ingredients and are ready in just a few short minutes.
Witch Finger Mozarella Cheese Sticks
- Farm Rich Mozzarella Sticks
- Roasted pumpkin seeds
Step 1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Use a small knife to cut a fingernail shape out of the top of a mozzarella stick.
Step 2. Press the stick down into the cheese so that it stays in place for cooking.
Place the witch fingers on a baking sheet in a single layer, then cook the witch finger cheese sticks in the oven as directed on the back of the package. The cook time will depend on how many sticks you cook at once. Remove from the oven once done cooking.
I was so amazed at how well these witch fingers turned out! They looked great, and the pumpkin seed fingernails were the perfect touch!
Now it’s time to make a sauce to go with the witch fingers, and what better sauce than a homemade marinara dipping sauce that is simple to make, tastes great, and looks like blood?! It IS Halloween, after all.
Easy Marinara Dipping Sauce
- 28 oz. can crushed or pureed tomatoes
- 1 Tbsp. Italian seasoning
- 2 cloves fresh garlic, minced
- 2 tsp. brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1 Tbsp. chopped fresh basil
Step 1. Combine all the ingredients (except the fresh basil) in a medium pot. Simmer on medium-low for 10-15 minutes.
Step 2. Remove from heat and add the chopped fresh basil. Stir to combine. Wait until the marinara dipping sauce has cooked a bit to serve.
I love this spooky snack, especially since you can make it in less than 20 minutes!
I hope you enjoyed our witch Halloween party and that you got some ideas for your next spooky soiree! Those witch finger snacks would be the perfect thing to fill up those hungry little ghoul and goblin tummies on Halloween night.
