Halloween Party Ideas for Adults
Did you think that Halloween was a holiday that was just for kids? Well, think again because Halloween can be just as cool for adults as it is for kids. Here are some awesome adult party ideas for your next Halloween bash.
Food Ideas- You don’t need anything fancy for party food.
Halloween Monster Munch
4 cups of kettle corn
3 cups of pretzels
1 cup of M&M’s- brown, yellow and orange
2 cups of chocolate chips
In a party bowl, add all the ingredients and combine well.
Count Chocolate Martini
3 ½ ounces of vodka
1 ½ tablespoons of chocolate syrup
1 tablespoon of cocoa powder
1 ½ tablespoons of heavy cream
Using a martini shaker, combine all the ingredients, shake very well and strain into martini glasses.
Game/Activity Ideas- Your party wouldn’t be complete without a couple games/activities.
Touch & Feel Box
The object of this game is for your guests to reach into the box to feel slimy and creepy things like eyeballs and intestines. Of course, what’s actually in the boxes are common foods. Take a medium sized cardboard box, place a bowl inside with the items (see below) and then cut a hole in the lid of the box and tape the cover shut.
Steamed cauliflower- brain
Candy corn- vampire teeth
Peeled tomato- heart
Cooked spaghetti- intestines
Peeled grapes- eyeballs
Cooked green beans- monster or witch fingers
Bobbing for Apples with a Twist
So, what’s the twist? Instead of water, you will be using some type of alcohol. You can use pretty much anything you want like cider, vodka or alcohol. For the bobbing container, you can use a large pot, metal tub or bucket. You will also need a few shot glasses for this game. Fill up the bobbing container with the alcohol. Before you place the apples in the container, carved side down, carve a number on one side of the apple. The goal of the game is when someone gets an apple, they must drink the number of shots that corresponds with the number carved in the apple.
