Try These Halloween Recipes for Some Spooky Fall Flavors!

Halloween Food Ideas for Creepy Fun at Your Concession Stand

Fall is one of the best times to get creative with your concessions menu – there are so many fun Halloween treats that are easy to make and sell! Get inspiration from the supplies you already have to whip up some new creations.

Candy Corn Fudge

Candy corn is the quintessential fall snack. Using Corn Treats products for color, our Candy Corn Fudge recipe is sweet and simple. Just make vanilla fudge as usual and then add color to each layer and allow it to set. Top with candy corn pieces to complete the look.

Multi-Colored Gourmet Popcorn

For a party or event, make batches of Orange, Green Apple, and Black Cherry flavored popcorn to match the scary mood.

Multi-Colored Funnel Cakes

We got creative with our fryer for these recipes! Using Green Apple and Orange Corn Treats as well as food-grade activated charcoal, you can create multi-colored Halloween-themed funnel cakes that will generate smiles – and sales!

The Corn Treats give a very subtle flavor to the dough, and activated charcoal is flavorless, so guests will enjoy the traditional funnel cake taste with just a hint of orange or green apple. Top with powdered sugar or go all out and make spiderwebs with frosting. We used candy eyes to make our green funnel cake monster.

Multi-Colored Waffle Cones

Similar to colored funnel cakes, we used our Corn Treats and activated charcoal to create rich Halloween colors in our Waf-A-Kone batter. We filled ours with gourmet popcorn for a longer-lasting treat, but these cones would be perfect with some spooky ice cream concoctions like Dreyer’s Ice Cream Eyeballs or Franken-Scoops.

Halloween Décor Ideas

Part of what people love about Halloween is the atmosphere and decorations. So be sure to make your stand or store look the part!

You can make witches’ hats out of black waffle cones and set them up on green apples with candy eyes. Display your Halloween-colored popcorn in a black cauldron. And you can even make your own spiderwebs as we did with White Citrus cotton candy – just be prepared for your fabric to get sticky as it melts.

If you try any of these ideas or have more of your own, we’d love to see the results! Share on our Facebook page or tag us on Instagram. And make sure to follow us on Pinterest to find more creative concession recipe ideas.
