Halloween party food ideas

October is here so is thoughts of the holidays. Halloween is a first one on a list so I am already planning what we are going to cook for a party, what to wear and how to decorate that it would look different than previous years.
So I wanted to share some easy ideas on party food appetizer styles. Last year I made these and they were a big hit! These foods can be easily cooked any time you are in a mood for them. I used some food decorations and these dishes easily fit into the Halloween party table!

1. Сheese balls
Ingredients for the smaller ball:
cream cheese, 8 oz, at room temperature
goat cheese, 4 oz, at room temperature
chopped scallion
seasonings to taste: dried chopped onion, garlic salt, smoked paprika
black sesame seeds for coating

Ingredients for the larger ball:
cream cheese, 16 oz, at room temperature
1 can crashed pineapple, 20 oz, well drained
1/2 chopped green bell pepper
seasonings to taste: dried chopped onion, garlic salt, paprika
black sesame seeds for coating
 
Mix all ingredients but the sesame seeds, form 2 balls. Place sesame seeds on a flat plate and roll the cheese balls in it. Move to a serving plate, decorate and store in a refrigerator until ready to use. Serve with fresh baked sliced baguette.

2. Meat and cheese quesadilla
 Ingredients:
a pack of tortillas
cooked meat (cubed roasted chicken, shredded pork or some chopped steak)
Monterrey Jack cheese, shredded
mayonnaise
Medium taco sauce to taste
Preheat your oven to 385"F. Line the tray with a foil. Spread a thin layer of mayonnaise on 1 side of the tortillas and arrange some meat and cheese on half of the circle. Spread some taco sauce on top of the meat and cheese and fold the other half of the tortilla on top of the meat and cheese. Bake for about 10 to 15 minutes. Let it cool and cut to a single size servings. Arrange on a serving plate and decorate. Cover with a lid to keep moist until ready to serve (no more then 2 hours without refrigerator since there is some meat and cheese in it).

3. Chocolate cupcakes
I am sure you have your favorite recipe for these. So just bake and frost them as you always do, sprinkle with edible decorations. Store in refrigerator until ready to serve.
What are you going to cook for your party? Please share with me your ideas!
