You can easily tailor your flavors for adults or kids. Guests of all ages will love to mix and match and play with flavor combos.

Kooky Kid Kreations

What’s better than kid friendly treats made by kids themselves?! Ask your little monsters to help out in the kitchen and show off their decorating skills, maybe even offer a prize treat for the most unique! These recipes require minimal ingredients but have a ton of Halloween imagination. (And for even more inspiration, check out this kooky collection: Five Ingredient Recipes that Kids Can Help Make.)

Witch’s Brew Station

Set up an area where your adult guests can be their own boo-tender and mix up magic elixirs. Lay out the ingredients for inventive and festive cocktails like this Pear Infused Poison or Bloody Pomegranate Cosmos — both come together in just five minutes! You can even print or write out the recipe cards to have at the station so it’s both fun and fool-proof.
