Halloween is just around the corner, and if you're having a haunted Halloween party, now is the perfect time to start planning! You're probably already thinking about Halloween traditions like bobbing for apples, telling ghost stories, and carving jack-o'-lanterns. But do you know what you're feeding your little ghouls and goblins?
Don't just settle for giant-sized chocolate bars or candy corn. Instead, whip up some killer pumpkin-inspired Halloween dishes that are frighteningly delicious. So in the spirit of All Hallows' Eve and pumpkin season, here are five Halloween pumpkin treats and sweets you can make at home with a Blendtec.
Butter boards are all the rage lately, even trending on TikTok. And since it's fall, why not make a pumpkin butter board? It's sweet, salty, spiced, and the perfect party appetizer for your Halloween festivities. It's meant to be shared just like a charcuterie, so spread the pumpkin butter on a board with toppings like pepitas, cranberry seeds, flaky salt, and pecans. Dip or spread on bread or crackers.
When craving something savory and flavorful, look no further than homemade pumpkin hummus. Dubbed the "best hummus of all time," it's full of garlic, paprika, and other warm fall flavors. To make it even more frightfully festive, dress it up like a pumpkin by using cucumber, lettuce, snap peas, or any green veggie to make the stem. If you're feeling extra creative, use chopped veggies and almonds to create a colorful skull on top of your hummus.
This creamy pumpkin soup will leave you wanting more. Its rich flavor and smooth texture are to die for. Thanks to your Blendtec, it only takes a few minutes to make. Serve in a mini pumpkin with a bat-shaped piece of bread if you want to add a bit of spookiness to your soup.
Gather around the cauldron to sip some festive pumpkin-flavored smoothies. The delicious beverage will trick your kids into drinking some antioxidants along with all of their treats. The orange provides sweetness, the green apple provides tartness, the ginger gives a bite, and the allspice makes you savor the flavor. For a more BOOzy drink for the adults, add a bit of spiced rum.
Pumpkin and chocolate pair perfectly in these cupcakes. They're vegan, gluten-free, and delicious, so it's easy to trick your kids into eating this healthy treat. Featuring a pure pumpkin taste and autumnal spices, this ultimate treat is melt-in-your-mouth delicious. Decorate with Halloween cupcake toppers or a spider web wrapper.
