It’s the most wonderful time of the year if you’re a fall fanatic. It’s time to enjoy crisp air, warm tea, fab boots…and party fun! If planning a Halloween party or seasonal bash is on your to-do list this autumn, then we have tasty fall party foods for you.
If you’ve planned fall parties before, you know it can be a challenge to find good-for-you dishes that actually taste good. After all, no one wants to serve guests fall party recipes that have as much taste as a cardboard skeleton. On one hand, you want recipes that take advantage of all the season’s yummy tastes (check out this Fall Produce Guide). On the other hand, you know that too much fat, sugar, and salt aren’t good for you or your guests.
The Skinny Ms. team has worked extra hard to pull together our best fall party dishes. You’ll find tried-and-true classics, like our Oven-Baked Zucchini Chips, but you’ll also discover several exciting new recipes, like Olive-Stuffed Radish Eyeballs (which, by the way, will look fabulously “disgusting” on your table). Enjoy!
13 Best Fall Party Recipes:
1) Witches’ Brew Mulled Cider
Hot or cold, this drink is perfect for any fall party recipes list. Serve it alcohol-free, or enjoy it with dark rum or brandy. This cider is perfect for a ghoulish Halloween gathering, but it can easily be served at other fall get-togethers (minus the witchy name, of course).
2) Pumpkin Soup Shooters
This flavorful fall concoction is just what your party guest need to sip on at your next get-together. After all, what says fall more than deliciously creamy pumpkin?
3) Olive-Stuffed Radish Eyeballs
No Halloween table would be complete without a little something that makes guests squeal “ewww.” These radish “eyeballs” look like they came straight out of a zombie flick, but your guests will enjoy the crunchy taste topped with creamy guacamole.
4) Blood-Red Beet Hummus with Carrot Fingers
Whether you’re hosting a traditional Halloween bash or a zombie-themed party, this dish is sure to attract attention. Serve this spooky appetizer with veggies, whole-wheat pretzels, or whole-wheat pita chips.
5) Candied Caramel Apples (Pictured Above)
Do you love candied apples? We do, too! But some recipes are just dripping with sugar, so we created this treat using coconut milk and brown rice syrup. These apples are a delish way to serve up the classic candied taste without the added junk. This is one of those fall party recipes everyone will love to dig their teeth into.
6) Sweet Potato Hummus
No fall party foods list would be complete without this tasty appetizer. This homemade hummus is delicious served with crostini bread.
7) Chili-Lime Spiced Pumpkin Seeds
Need an irresistible treat for your party table? These pumpkin seeds are the perfect healthy finger food for your shindig.
8) Oven-Baked Zucchini Chips
Why set out a bag of greasy potato chips when you can serve guests delicious and healthy munchies? As a bonus, these zucchini chips are also easy to make.
9) Baked Apple Chips
Add seasonal sweetness to your fall party recipes menu with these simple-to-make treats. Guests will love to nosh on these healthy snacks.
10) Crispy Kale and Pumpkin Croquettes
When you’re serving fall party dishes, this one needs to be on your radar! It offers the pumpkin taste that everyone is practically addicted to these days combined with superfood kale for nutritional power.
11) Fava Beans with Garlic and Lemon
It doesn’t matter whether you’re going for a Silence of the Lambs feel or just want fall party foods that are tasty, this dish should be on the menu. Don’t forget the Chianti!
12) Pumpkin Spice Bread
There’s not much to say about this recipe—except Yum! Not only is it the ideal seasonal treat to serve at fall parties, it’s also vegan, which makes it a smart choice when you’re entertaining vegan guests.
13) Spicy Pumpkin Hummus
You haven’t had hummus quite like this before! Spicy Pumpkin Hummus is perfect for fall parties or seasonal get-togethers. Serve a batch of this uniquely-flavored spicy treat with toast, as a dip for apples & veggies, or with a plate of whole wheat pita bread.
