The Perfect Foods for Your Halloween Murder Mystery Party

October 09, 2023

Halloween’s creepy charm and a riveting murder mystery – a match made in eerie heaven! But wait. As you weave this chilling tale of treachery and betrayal, what’s on the menu? You can’t serve up just any food; the menu should amplify the suspense. Here’s your guide to laying out a spread that complements your Halloween murder mystery.

Appetizers – Kick Things Off With a Bang

  • Witchy Guacamole: Carve out a pumpkin to look like it’s retching, and have green guacamole spill out. Not only is it eye-catching, but it also gets everyone talking.
  • Bloody Deviled Eggs: Splash a bit of red food coloring on classic deviled eggs to get this look. They’re sure to be a hit, not just for their appearance but also their delectable taste.

Main Course – Something to Die For (Not Literally)

  • Stuffed Bell Pepper Jack-o-Lanterns: Carve out bell peppers like pumpkins and stuff them with delicious fillings. They’re sure to be a show-stopper.
  • Ghoul-ash: What’s Halloween without some wordplay? This Goulash (see what we did there?) is hearty, fulfilling, and perfect for the occasion.

Desserts – The Grand Finale

  • Graveyard Chocolate Mousse: Tiny biscuit gravestones jutting out of luscious chocolate mousse. Not only are they Instagram-worthy, but they’ll also have guests going back for seconds.
  • Pumpkin Pie Lollipops: Bite-sized versions of the classic, these are perfect for those who want to indulge without going overboard.

Spooky Spirits and Drinks

  • Bloody Mary with a Twist: Serve this classic cocktail in test tubes or fancy glassware for added effect. A celery stick can playfully act as a “stirring wand.”
  • Pumpkin Punch: Non-alcoholic and a delight, this is great for those who prefer to skip the spirits.

Now, while the food can set the mood, the heart of the party is the murder mystery. And trust us, while DIY mysteries might seem tempting, they’re like attempting to bake a soufflé for the first time; tricky and with no guarantee of success.
