Obviously, Halloween is a big event in college – candy, parties, running around in silly costumes, come on now. And when Halloween happens to fall on a Friday (cough, cough, this year) why not take an entire Halloween weekend? If you happen to be the host of a party this year, you should check out these Spoon University recipes to add some great flavor to your celebration and fuel your partying all weekend long.
1. Breakfast/Brunch: Pumpkin Spice Muffins
Want something quick and easy that only takes 20 minutes to cook and three ingredients? These Pumpkin Spice Muffins are sure to “spice up” your party. They don’t even require eggs!
2. Snack: Halloween Puppy Chow.
Check out the recipe for traditional puppy chow here, then mix it up by using candy corn white chocolate M&Ms.
3. Main Course: Pumpkin Gnocchi
If you’re one to host a dinner party, try out this recipe for pumpkin gnocchi. Usually, gnocchi takes a lot of work, since they’re made from potatoes and need to be mashed. Skip the labor and opt for a quick, seasonally-appropriate alternative for your hungry guests.
4. Refreshments: Blood Orange Punch
Want a boozy drink that’s a festive orange color? Stir up this Blood Orange Punch. All it requires is San Pellegrino Aranciate Rossa soda, 1 shot of Bourbon, ice cubes, mint and ginger ale.
5. Dessert: Frozen Banana Ghosts

At the end of the night, your friends will be thanking you for filling their tummies with a delicious assortment of Halloween goodies to balance out the sugar-rush.
