It's October!!!! I can't believe the year is winding down. We are looking forward to the upcoming holidays! We shared this recipe a few weeks ago on Eighteen25's Spooktacular September series. Check it out for some fun ideas! We love fun and festive food for any holiday, but oftentimes Halloween food can cross a line that makes it a bit unappetizing. We're all about making fun festive food that doesn't make you cringe! :)
We like to "spookify" our favorite foods. So enter Spooky Guac. [Sidenote: I did come across a Halloween guac recipe called "Guacamoldy", but even that was too much for me to be able to call it that and still eat it.] Isn't guacamole the perfect party food and the perfect color for a Halloween spread? And the kids think it's totally awesome to have a spider and her web in the guacamole bowl.
We simply used 2 olives to make a quick little edible spider--a little black spider ring (dollar store) would also work great too! For the web, we just piped some sour cream into circles and dragged a toothpick (or chopstick) from the center to the outside edges to get the spider web effect. You could use any guacamole, but here's the link to our favorite guac recipe.
It's fun, cute, and festive and doesn't take too much effort--so add it to your Halloween party menu/celebrations!
