4 Unique Ways to Incorporate Candy into Your Halloween Party

If you’re looking for a way to satisfy your guests look no further! Read on to learn how to leave your them waiting for your next bash.

Halloween is nearly here, and even the most organized hosts are throwing together last-minute party preparations. Halloween parties are an opportunity for hosts to truly let their creativity soar, combining themes, activities, food, and decor to create the ultimate spooky soiree for their guests. If you’re looking for a way to satisfy your guests and leave them waiting excitedly for next year’s bash, look no further! These creative Halloween candy ideas are sure to leave your guests wanting more.

Treat Your Guests to the Ultimate Candy Buffet

Perhaps the easiest (and most indulgent) way to add a sweet touch to your Halloween party is by putting together a candy buffet. Whether it’s part of your dessert table or a feature all its own, decorate your candy buffet with colorful decorations, tablecloths, napkins, and containers. Some hosts put their candy in cauldrons or antique glass jars, but any container that works well with your party’s theme will do!

Try This Take on Bobbing for Apples

Bobbing for apples is a classic Halloween game, but it can be a bit messy — and the idea of dunking one’s face into the same basin of water as a slew of other partygoers doesn’t have the appeal it once did. One way to bring apple bobbing into the year 2022 is to bob for apples on strings: using string, suspend caramel apples from a tree, doorframe, broom handle, or ceiling. Challenge participants by spinning the strings (making the apples spin and move) or using blindfolds.

Hold a Halloween Gingerbread House Contest

Gingerbread houses are usually associated with Christmas, but Halloween gingerbread houses are seeing a surge in popularity. Let your guests get creative (and competitive) by holding a gingerbread house contest. Start with a gingerbread house kit, graham crackers, or homemade gingerbread, and give participants a smorgasbord of candy with which to decorate. Candy corn and jelly pumpkins are cute additions to any gingerbread house, and festive gummies like our Spooktacular gummi mix and gummi body parts are perfect for adding some extra gruesome Halloween flair. 

Craft Some Delectable Halloween-Themed Desserts

Whether you’re throwing your own party or you’re attending someone else’s potluck, you can’t go wrong with a Halloween-themed dessert! Give your cupcakes a healthy dose of the Halloween spirit by topping them with candy corn or autumn nonpareils. Grab some breakup chocolate and create Halloween chocolate bark, chocolate spiders, or candy corn hot chocolate bombs.
