Cupcakes - Cupcakes is another great food that you can dress up and make into a Halloween recipe. Use any type of cake mix that you desire to bake the cupcakes.

Refreshments - Everyone serves refreshments at their dinners, so make them more exciting also. You can do this by using food coloring to turn your beverages into Halloween colors. In the event that you are serving a beverage that you do not want to put food coloring into, you can make the ice cubes that will be used more colorful. You can do this by using the food coloring in the water used to make your ice cubes. This way any cold beverage that you serve can have a touch of the Halloween sprit.
