This Halloween brunch is a fun way to celebrate the Halloween season with the whole family. With all the spooky decorations and delicious treats, you will surely have a spooktacular time!
I'm known to go above and beyond when it comes to holidays, but I can't help it! I love creating moments when everyone can come together and celebrate. Some of my most favorite memories are of the holidays. Including this witches night out.
We have done this Halloween brunch party as a "mom-n-me" style, but you can adapt it to include whomever you want. You could throw this party for your family, friends, co-workers, or whoever else. It will be a hit, no matter what.
I love spending time with my girlfriends, but it gets tricky because we have younger kids. Instead of having to worry about finding sitters, throw a mom-n-me brunch!
The little kids will absolutely adore the spooky touch to this brunch especially if you serve up our Halloween bark or Halloween chex mix. Our Hocus Pocus charcuterie board is another great thing to serve.
In addition to great food, be sure to get some of our Halloween books for kids that you may want to read at the party.
For a Halloween brunch, you will need Halloween breakfast ideas. We love to stick with fall flavors, like in our gluten-free pecan pie bread pudding. You should also try these scrumptious French toast bites and gluten-free cinnamon rolls.
These Halloween sandwiches are another spooky treat that will make this brunch special. I love the ghost shape of the sandwiches and how the cheese gives the ghost white look. The kids will love them too...
Charcuterie boards are perfect to serve at any and all brunches. This charbooterie board is a must-have at this brunch. We recommend adding plastic spiders on the board for an even creepier look.
Adding these witch finger snacks is a great way to add some creepy to your Halloween morning. They almost look too realistic, but they are absolutely delicious.
Our Halloween crescent roll recipes make for a yummy breakfast treat. Pair with some fresh fruit and homemade treats, and you're golden! I love the fun witch hat crescent rolls because they are so cute.
Our no-bake ghost cookies are not only delicious but also gluten-free. They are a spooky treat, and the kids can help make them. They are a win-win because you get a sweet treat and a Halloween activity out of them.
Another sweet to serve is this fun recipe for Halloween worms in dirt. The kids love them because they look creepy, and I love them because I love chocolate pudding. I still serve it at brunch even though it is technically a dessert.
Now for the drinks. Beverages are a huge part of brunches, especially alcoholic ones. We prefer mocktails around here, so we have plenty of alcohol-free options.
You can't go wrong with a non alcoholic champagne; this recipe is as beautiful as it is tasty. It has a red coloring, so you could even make it seem like you are drinking "blood." Our cranberry mocktail will have the same effect.
Many of our mocktails call for simple syrup because of their sweet flavor. Plus, it adds that syrupy texture that is incredibly tasty.
It is not brunch without a bottomless mimosa. We use non-alcoholic champagne or non-alcoholic dry sparkling wine to mix with orange juice. My kids call it bubbly orange juice.
Pumpkin Fudge Pretzel Dip
This pumpkin fudge dip is a great sweet and savory snack for your next witches bash. It is full of seasonal flavor and and simple to make. Win-win!
How to make gluten free pumpkin fudge pretzel dip
Cook pumpkin mixture
Add the brown sugar, butter, evaporated milk, pumpkin, honey, and spices in a pot. Warm over medium heat.
Allow the mixture to cook at medium heat. Stir constantly for about 12 minutes.
Add other ingredients
Remove the pot from the heat. Slowly stir in chocolate chips, marshmallow cream, and pretzels.
Be careful because the mixture is going to be warm. Stirring slowly will allow the rest of the ingredients to mix perfectly into the fudge.
Pour the fudge into your serving dish. Let it cool to room temperature.
Once ready to serve, pour gluten-free Glutino pretzels on a serving dish next to the fudge. Pretzels are delicious with this recipe.
Now that you have the food figured out, you need decorations. Flowers are always a part of any party I throw, and I went with orange and white flowers for this party. For an added pop, I threw in purple flowers.
White pumpkins are a must because they look so sleek and classy. You can use a fake pumpkin or real pumpkin. Fake ones make for less mess, but you will probably have a real pumpkin around ready to carve.
Adding fake candles and orange lights are also fun ideas for decorating. I say fake because you will have kiddos running around, and the last thing you need is for someone to get hurt.
Now you don't have to, but to spice up the party, have costume contests! You can have different categories, which allows everyone to get extra creative. We do the same in our witches night out party.
This Halloween brunch does not have to be complicated. All you need is your closest family and friends, tasty food, and maybe a pumpkin for decorating. We hope you have the best Halloween!
