Cemetary Spinach Dip~ Halloween Party Recipes

Time to get ready for Halloween! Tune in for all kinds of party recipes that I've made time and time again- easy, inexpensive ways to get in the spooky-spirit!

If you are planning a party this year or bringing a dish to one- here is my all time favorite Halloween dip. I love this because because it's a great centerpiece for a GIANT VEGGIE PLATE, which helps balance all that sugar from the trick-or-treating loot!!

This is just a very basic spinach dip that I've made and posted about before with a few dashes of green food dye for extra grody-factor to celebrate the spookiness of Halloween.
Last year I added the carrot fingers, which are an easy and awesome way to add creepy to your table...attach a little almond slice finger nail using a dab of cream cheese~ BOO!

You can easily double this recipe depending on how many guys & ghouls you have coming to your shin-dig...

Serves 20
  • 2/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 16 oz. container sour cream
  • 1 1.8 oz) package dry leek soup mix
  • 1 8 oz. can water chestnuts, drained and minced
  • 2 10 ounce package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
  • Fresh cracked black pepper (just a bit to taste)
  • Green food dye- for swampy spookieness

Mix all of the above ingredients in a large bowl and add the food dye until it is the desired color of swampy green. Cover and refrigerate 8 hours to overnight. Serve with  veggies like celery, carrots & bell peppers, tomatoes......
