Halloween Party Appetizers

Dear Chicago House,

Here are a few more recipes from Chicago teen’s Pinterest foodie Halloween party this past weekend.
Yesterday we had a yummy graveyard dip, chocolate covered marshmallows and a skeleton vegetable platter. Today lets start with another scrumptious dip

Apple Caramel Dip


Caramel apple dip


  • 1 block of cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons of brown sugar
  • Caramel syrup … like the sort you would use on an ice cream sundae
  • 1 bag of Heath toffee bits
  • Granny Smith apples
  • Lemon juice

In a food processor whip the cream cheese with the brown sugar until it is light and fluffy. Slice the apples into thin wedges and toss with lemon juice… this stops the apples going brown. Spread the cream cheese mixture in the center of a round plate. Top with caramel sauce then Heath toffee bits. Arrange the apple slices around the dip.

Pumpkin Decorated Cupcakes


  • 6 oz Self raising flour
  • 5 oz Sugar
  • 5 oz Margarine
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 tea spoon Vanilla essence
  • Orange frosting
  • Orange sugar sprinkles
  • Green twizzlers
  • Green lace type candy

Cream the margarine and sugar together in a food processor until it is light and fluffy. Adds eggs and vanilla then the flour. Spoon mixture into cup cake liners. Bake at 350 deg F for 20 minutes.

Once the cakes are out of the oven and cooled ice with orange frosting and dip into orange sugar. Then with a skewer make seven indentations around the cake radiating from the center. Pipe a line of orange frosting into these indentations. Top each cake with a green twizzler peice for the pumpkin stalk.

Plate up and decorate with green lace candy for pumpkin tendrils.

 Halloween Popcorn 


  • Popcorn kernels
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • Salt
  • Candy corn
  • 1 bag black candy melt

In a large sauce pan add the oil and popcorn kernels and heat to pop the popcorn. Shake the pan constantly to stop the popcorn burning.

Season lightly with salt and fill simple cups with popcorn and a few candy corn sweets. Melt the candy melt and drizzle over each cup with a fork.

Great for watching scary movies!
