Food creativity around Halloween goes way up! I’m always amazed at the things people come up with for this holiday in particular. My theory is that it’s driven by moms up late at night who forgot about their kid’s classroom party — “We only have pretzels and chocolate in the pantry?! Yup, totally looks like Frankenstein!”

Either way, these ideas are enviable. But luckily, these crafty folks proudly pasted their ideas to Pinterest for the rest of us to marvel at — and of course copy.

Mini Halloween Pizzas

It’s genius. Why shouldn’t cheese look like ghosts around Halloween?

Jack Skellington Oreo Pops

Everyone’s favorite Halloween movie. Or is it Christmas? … Or is it Halloween? The debate continues.

Skeleton Ribs and Guts

Clever. Gross, but clever.

Monster Toes

So easy. And a really cool idea, too!

Strawberry Ghosts

Again, super simple, but incredibly tasty. Everyone loves chocolate covered strawberries.

Creepy Pizza Hands

Another freaky way to eat pizza.

Black Cat Glazed Donuts

Cute and attention grabbing.

Mummy Pumpkin Cookies

Like pumpkin pie you can eat with your hands.

Buffalo Meatball pumpkins

Not sure how pretzels and meatballs taste together, but they look really cute. And really, anything covered in buffalo sauce is sure to be delicious.

Friday the 13th Jason Mask Cupcakes

Friday the 13th falls again this year. Get ready.

Jack-o-Lantern Mac & Cheese

Insanely easy. Open up a box of Annie’s Mac and Cheese and you’re practically done.

Halloween Chex Mix Muddy Buddies

Great for sharing.

Bat Wings

Almost too gross looking to eat. But look how creative — wait till you see inside. These would definitely be the hit of the party.

Jalapeno Popper Mummies

Serve with a side of blood-looking marinara. Yum.

Boo-Nilla Ghost Milkshakes

Boo-tifuly easy to pull off.

Monster Cookies

All you need is some food coloring and candy eyeballs, but the results are super creative.

Snake Sandwich

Because you’re going to want something substantial to go with all these snacks, but it doesn’t have to be boring. This snake sandwich checks all the boxes.

Frankenstein Pretzels

Someone really got creative with pretzels.

Halloween Tater skins

Putting that fear of spiders aside, these look really delicious.

Witch hat cupcakes

Cupcakes in classic Halloween colors are a perfect addition to any October gathering.

And you’re going to need some drinks, too…
