We’re taking a little break from our regular Weekly Meal Plans this week and celebrating Halloween. Here are a few Fun Halloween Themed Meals that little kids and big kids will enjoy. Even grownups are going to love these recipes.
Fun Halloween Themed Meals
I thought it would be fun to take a little break from our traditional meal plan that I share with you every Monday. If you’re wanting to join in on the Halloween food-themed trend, here are a few fun and creative meals to try.
As a special bonus, I’m sharing with you TWO new recipes that are so simple, I didn’t even create printable recipe cards. There’s no wrong way to make them! Make sure you pin this post so you can come back to it when you’re ready to make something “scary”for dinner from our Halloween Themed Meals this week.
Not sure what to do with all the candy your children receive over next few days? Check out my post on Leftover Candy Desserts. My favorite is the Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Pizza. It looks so delicious.

Spider Web Pizza
This recipe is an easy adaptation of how to decorate the top of your favorite pizza.
- Make your pizza as usual with your favorite toppings but make sure and add more sauce on the top of your toppings to create a red “background.”
- Take mozzarella string cheese and pull each piece into a thin strip.
- Place them on top of the pizza in the shape of a spider web. Bake pizza for 8-10 minutes until the cheese melts.
- Take 3 large pitted black olives.
- Cut off one end of 2 of the olives.
- You will use these for the spider heads. Cut the remaining olive lengthwise.
- Use one half for the body and cut the remaining pieces into strips for legs.
- Assemble the spider on the pizza.
Mummy Hot Dogs
These are fun to make and kids love them. Mummy Hot Dogs are the perfect addition to our Halloween Themed Meals we’re featuring this week.
- Take a can crescent rolls, spread them out and press all the perforations together.
- Slice each sheet or rectangle into lengthwise pieces.
- Take cheese slices (any variety) and slice several into lengthwise pieces.
- Wrap several strips of cheese around each hot dog.
- Then wrap slices of crescent roll over each to resemble mummy bandages.
- Place each mummy dog on large cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and spray dough lightly with cooking spray.
- Bake approximately 15 minutes or until dough is light golden brown and the dogs are hot.
- You can draw a “face” on each mummy dog with mustard for added fun.
Just in case you don't want to serve anything "scary-looking," try this recipe for Pumpkin Chili. Once you try this chili, you will never make any other type of chili again. Pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice are the secret ingredients that make this chili a standout recipe
This spooky spiderweb soup is really easy to make, and so much fun! The kids will love the spiderweb touch and it also serves as decor on the table — until they gobble it up, of course!
