We all know that Halloween is all about the candy. Just seeing the aisles of my local store fill up with bags on bags on bags of festive sweets immediately gets me in the spirit for Halloween. It's one of my favorite times of the year, and for your Halloween party this year, you'll surely want to have a kick-ass dessert spread. Sure, you could have bowls of candy corns; that sounds amazing. But, you also most likely want to have some healthy treats, salty snacks, and chocolate cupcakes available for guests to munch on, too. Don't go with the generic “eyeball” grapes. You definitely need to prepare some unique Halloween party snacks for your friends that fulfill both their salty and sweet needs. It's time to get creative.
Your snacks can be something spooky or just really cute. Even if you're not a whiz in the kitchen, there are some snacks that are super easy to make. You know a party is all about the food. Well, at least for me it is, so you should consider having an awesome variety on your snack table. If you need some inspiration, here are 10 Halloween snack recipes that anyone can make for your party (even you) that are delicious and totally Instagram-worthy. You should tell your guests to come hungry, because they'll want to try everything.

All of these snacks are so adorable, and perfectly themed for Halloween. They also require absolutely no cooking. That means anyone can make them... so let's get this party started.
2. Ghost Pops, Dirt Cups, And Jumbo Marsh Pops
I mean, you can't go wrong with a platter of dirt cups for Halloween, right? All of these snacks are also really cute and require no baking whatsoever. Also, not many people at your party will be able to resist these chocolatey jumbo marshmallow pops. They'll be a major hit.
3. Caramel Apple Pops, Witch's Broom Sticks, Bloody Eggs, And Monster S'mores
