Halloween Recipes Recipe

A collection of past favorite Halloween recipes - lots of pumpkin recipes and of course the meringue ghosts.

Halloween Recipes

I suspect that some of you might be on the lookout for a few Halloween recipes, or Halloween-inspired recipes might be a better way of phrasing it. There are a bunch hiding in the archives, so I thought I'd bump a handful back up to the top here. A few of my favorites include:

Roasted Pumpkin Salad - A roasted pumpkin salad made with wild rice, tiny, caramelized red onions drizzled with a simple, honey-kissed, creamy sunflower seed dressing. A colorful harvest salad perfect for Fall festivities.

Thai-spiced Pumpkin Soup - From deep in archives, this Thai-spiced Pumpkin Soup couldn't be easier to make - roasted winter squash, coconut milk, Thai red curry paste, and sea salt come together in a pot of vibrant, rich, flavorful soup. Total crowd pleaser.

Caramel Apples - a caramel apple recipe made from apples, honey, cream, and salt - all-natural, with no processed corn syrup or other funky ingredients.

Spice-kissed Pumpkin Pie - a favorite, easy pumpkin pie recipe. Made from a rich, roasted pumpkin and coconut milk base, and baked in a hazelnut-lined crust.

Spooky Ghost Meringues - a fun meringue recipe that enables you to shape the meringue into seasonal shapes - ghosts for halloween, or snowmen for the holidays.

Toasted Pumpkin Seeds - Don't let all those pumpkin seeds go to waste, toasting pumpkin seeds is easy. Here are a few different flavor combinations: Sweet & Spicy Toasted Pumpkin Seeds, Black Tea & Butter Toasted Pumpkin Seeds, and Curried Toasted Pumpkin Seeds.

Here is where all the pumpkin recipes live. Some are also filed under: winter squash recipes as well. Happy Halloween!

Thanks for sharing some halloween recipes. My family is planning to have a nice and not so bog party this coming Halloween so the list is going to be a big help to us.

This pie (Spice-kissed Pumpkin Pie) would be one that I would like to try. Usually I don't like pumpkin pie. But this one looks different with the hazelnuts. Maybe next week I'll try it.


Thai-spiced pumpkin soup ... now that sounds wonderful. Happy Halloween everyone!

Oops. Sorry for double posting: butterfingers! Also tinned pumpkin is NOT needed (on more careful reading of the recipe!) ....just in case anyone might be misled by the previous comment. Happy Hallowe'en!


Oh yesssss!!! The Cat and I were just pondering what Hallowe'en recipes we should try and I am very excited by the spice-kissed pumpkin pie....if we can FIND tinned pumpkin in Dundee, that is. Thank you! Mouse


I just found your website yesterday via a google search for a good split pea soup recipe. I'm so happy I found it! Your site and recipes are wonderful. I really enjoy reading your writing and seeing the places you've been. I love that you post links to all the good restaurants you find along the way. Thank you for doing all this, I can't wait to get cooking with your site as my virtual collection of 101 cookbooks! And on that note... I just made your carrot oatmeal cookies but swapped the carrot for pumpkin puree and added cinnamon to make them fit the season! They are truly wonderful on this snowy Denver day. I did an even swap with the carrots and pumpkin, added a dusting of cinnamon to the dry bowl, used a combination of brown rice and spelt flours and added some ground flax seed (about 2 tbsp). The nuttiness of the flax pairs well with the ingredients and bumps up the fiber and omega-3's. Thanks!


I have made that soup not too long after you first posted - amazing how time passes fast! It is great, if I remember correctly I only had light coconut milk in the house (bought by mistake), but it was still very luscious and rich tasting. Happy Halloween!


OH yay! Thank you ... What a great photo. Freaks... my favorite thing. -Michaela

Oh my word, those zebras are terrifying.


Happy Halloween to you too! While I don't eat a lot of candy and such, I do enjoy some fall treats and these recipes look like just the thing!

Heidi, thanks for rounding up and recommending your Halloween/autumn recipes. I'm not a big Halloween fan, but I *do* love autumn foods.

I just saw your Thai spiced pumpkin soup. We had a similar pumpkin soup last winter in Zurich at one of their vegetarian restaurants - Hiltl - It had coconut milk, ginger and lemon grass and was heavenly on a cold winter day !


Thank you for your pumpkin recipes - I don't love fresh pumpkin much and never have any idea on what to do with it in order to make it delicious (and I do believe it is possible, you only need to know how)


I made your caramel apples last weekend. They were pretty good, but the honey was quite strong. Would agave nectar work, or some mixture of both honey and agave nectar to cut back on the strength of the honey's flavor?


Thanks for putting together this page. I'm planning to make the pumpkin pie this weekend. I thought the initials stood for HalloWeen before I read the article :)


There are two acorn squash on my counter that would be perfect for your Thai-spiced pumpkin soup. Thanks! By the way, what lovely carved pumpkins. HS: Thanks Janice :)


I love your pumpkin pie and the spooky ghost meringues! in fact, I've linked to both of them in my posts!:)


Too bad the neighborhood moms probably wouldn't allow their kids to eat any toasted pumpkin seeds I could give out. I remember when I was a kid it was ok to trust homemade or unwrapped treats!

Michelle @ What Does Your Body Good?

I totally forgot about the Spooky Ghost Meringues! I saw them last year after the fact and wanted to make them - Thanks for the reminder ;o


Great photo - and I'm glad you didn't hurt yourself while carving! :) I love all of these recipes but especially the pumpkin seeds - my favorite!
