Pre- trick or treating party ideas

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi all!

 

We are having a pre trick or treating party at our house. 14 people, 6 of them are kids.

We will only have 1 1/2 hours to eat and hang out.

Any ideas for food / drinks/ nibbly things? I thought of a big pot of chili with fixings on the side to add.

My husband thinks we should have pizza and salad. Keep it simple... something that most will eat.

 

Any thoughts?

Thanks.

We've done it both ways.  I prefer the chili, because I get sick of pizza (seems to be the go-to meal for events around here).  However, pizza is easy, universally appealing, and the kids who are bouncing with energy can walk/eat at the same time.

Since it's about the kids I think I'd talk to the other parents and see what they think the kids will eat. You could do both — chili for the grown ups and pizza for the kids.

I'd stick wtih chili--get some decent food into the kiddos before they go on a sugar high!

We are having an open house this year during trick or treating. I am making chili, served with chips, crackers and a variety of hot sauces, lol. And hot cocoa to warm your hands on!

We do chili here too. It's nice because I can make it earlier in the afternoon and not have to cook during prime getting-costumed time, and also it gets a bunch of protein into the kids to counteract all the sugar they'll have later.
