Besides Christmas, Halloween was a favorite holiday of mine. What’s not to love about dressing up as your favorite hero or character and parading around in a costume, while getting enough candy to supply two weeks of sweets binge eating? And all this was encouraged, oh it was a magical day.

Decorative desserts and appetizers weren’t part of the experience for me growing up. Now as an adult and food blogger, I’m totally playing with my food. Make them yourself as part of your Halloween party menu, or get the family involved. Kids will love decorating these.

How to make your Black Bean Hummus Monster Halloween Appetizers unique

  • Start with a quick homemade black bean hummus (or call it a bean dip if you prefer). It’s simply drained black beans, garlic, lime juice, cumin and olive oil blended in a food processor.
  • Fill your desired bowls or containers. They can be any size or shape you prefer. I found small ramekins work perfectly. Spread out top evenly or to desired texture and add candy eyes. I went the traditional route and used two, but feel free to make a cyclops monster or something else.
  • For the hair, a bit of chopped parsley creates a lovely green hairdo. Style how you want, or use other edible ingredients such as sesame seeds, chili powder, chopped bell peppers or shredded cheese for different colors. The possibilities are endless.
  • Optional: Style the black bean texture to create a nose and mouth, or use additional ingredients to create this effect.
