Looking for something fun to munch on during your next spooky movie marathon? Try some of these festive Halloween movie night snack ideas!
A themed movie night is one of my favorite things! I love putting together fun snacks for my family as we all curl up on the couch to watch a movie. During October, we love watching family-friendly Halloween movies together. And I make a simple, but festive spooky snack to go with it!
These Halloween movie night snack ideas are simple but fun! They don’t require more than a few ingredients and most are ready in less than 30 minutes! Because bringing a little extra magic to a movie night doesn’t need to be difficult or stressful!
Fun Halloween Movie Night Snack Ideas
Sweet Halloween Movie Night Snacks
These cute little mummy cookies are made with three easy ingredients: Oreos, icing, and candy eyes! They take 5 minutes to make, and who doesn’t love Oreos?!
Rice Krispie treats are always an excellent choice for making themed treats because they are easy to customize! You can use a cookie cutter, icing, or food coloring to transform them into something fun! These little monster treats are made with Rice Krispie bars, green candy melts, and candy eyes.
Apple pie is a dessert classic, especially in the Fall. But a whole pie isn’t exactly easy to make. Plus, it’s a little messy for movie night on the couch. But these little apple pie bites are the perfect handheld treat! They have all the deliciousness of apple pie, rolled up in a Crescent Roll dough!
Dirt cups are another easy, but fun dessert. All you need is chocolate pudding and crushed Oreos! Of course, if you want to make it spooky you can add candy pumpkins, worms, or even gravestones!
Halloween Sugar Cookies
The Pillsbury Ready to Bake cookie dough with spooky shapes, like pumpkins and ghosts, has always been one of my favorite easy festive treats. Just pop them in the oven and in about 10 minutes you have spooky cookies!
Salty Halloween Movie Snack Ideas
Themed movie nights should be EASY! So a quick popcorn snack mix is a great go-to idea. This Halloween snack idea contains popcorn, candy corn, gummy eyeballs, Halloween sprinkles, and other spooky candy! Just mix it all together and serve it up for movie night!
A combination of sweet and savory is always great for a movie night snack! These Mummy Pretzels are drizzled with vanilla icing, which makes the perfect sweet and salty spooky snack.
Halloween Snack Boards
Combine a few of the snacks above with other spooky treats, like mini cupcakes, Halloween Peeps, and candy, on a large cheese board. The result is a festive Halloween Dessert Charcuterie Board!
No October is complete without at least one Hocus Pocus movie night! Make a whole Hocus Pocus night with breakfast for dinner. This Hocus Pocus pancake board features the Sanderson Sisters made from little pancakes. And their hair is made with fruit, which is a great alternative to all of the Halloween candy!
Halloween Movie Night Cocktail Ideas
If you’re Halloween movie night is for adults, then consider adding a few spooky cocktails to the mix!
- Black Magic Margaritas – These delicious blackberry and black currant margaritas are a delicious Halloween cocktail. The recipe was inspired by a seasonal Disney World cocktail.
- Hocus Pocus Cocktail – This fun cocktail is a spin on a “Devil’s Margarita.” It’s a traditional lime margarita, with a little extra ghoulish green, and a red wine float on top.
