any easy ideas for food/snacks related to a vampire theme? So far I'm going to do a chocolate fondue using red colored chocolate. (they can dip stuff in blood). =) and I have some fudge in the shape of bats.
Chips and Salsa could be called "Chips and Dracula's Garden Salsa"
Buffalo Wings (either bought frozen or pre-made from whatever local place you have that sells 'em)
Finger sandwiches in coffin shapes (it's a simple enough shape that you don't need a cookie cutter, and you could write RIP on each one with gel, mustard, colored mayo, etc.)
There's a few easy dip recipes I make: one is a block of cream cheese covered with a rasberry chipotle sauce (it's sold down here pre-made), then served with crackers or chips; the second is goat cheese covered with tomato pesto and served with thin crackers... both dips are red, gloopy, and icky when associated with the idea of blood.
And if you don't already have a drink, a sangria punch makes a great Vampire punch.
This recipe is pretty easy to make and can be prepared several days in advance of your party and reheated. It's called Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato Soup with 'Spider Web' Garnish. It's basically a gourmet version of the tomato soup we all grew up with.
It'll look like a bowl of blood with a spider web on top. You could do one large bowl for everyone at the party to "dip into" or do individual servings.
The "web" can be done in white, tinted eerie green or even a combination of the two colors... Great for the kids and adult Halloween parties alike.

By the way I copied this from a post from last year, that's why it some references to people who are not on your post!
I want to do an Escape Room during our Halloween party this year and would like suggestions. Im gonna have my basement divided into two rooms. Guests will go into the first room and do little things to get clues to find a key to unlock a lock box that has an antidote for a virus that is...
We did a puzzle/escape room for our last two halloween parties. The first one was a Lovecraft/horror theme and went quite nicely. The second was a scifi/mad science theme, and while the puzzles worked well, I felt like it was missing the Halloween element.
If I do one again this year...
I have to thank you all! - I have scoured this site for months (years?) absorbing ideas, inspiration, how to's-and how to nots!
I thought I would share some of the props & decor that was built for a Harry Potter Howarts dance at an event that I volunteer at.
Thank you all so much for your...
