Serve up these Halloween sandwiches at your spooky backyard party with a few friends for some fun during October. Everyone will love the ghost sandwich, creepy snake sandwich and even the witches finger sandwiches!
It’s quite easy to put together a spooky sandwich Halloween party that will fright and delight the kids. We keep the food simple by doing a fun little variety of Halloween sandwiches but you can certainly add some other fun food like our Halloween cheeseball Frankenstein head or our Halloween charcuterie board or CharBOOterie board!
We made ghost herbed cream cheese turkey and cheddar sandwiches which were not only darling, but SO tasty too! Even the grown ups loved them so they are great for a witches night out.
While not featured here, our pizza grilled cheese monster and gluten-free quesadilla jack o’ lantern would also be a great additions to the party food. They are more funny than creepy and toddlers especially love them! They are great serve up with our Halloween Activities Printable for a little fun and food.

We love to use the leftovers from cutting out the ghost Halloween sandwiches to make or savory bread pudding. You can also get creative and cut them into other Halloween shapes. For example, you can use cheddar cheese and make little pumpkin sandwich!
The monster snake hotdog sandwiches were definitely the one the kids got a kick out of the most. The best part? They couldn’t be easier to make!
I simply fried up strips of hot dogs in a frying pan until they got all squirmy looking then sandwiched them between two slices of gluten-free bread. You could add ketchup and mustard of even bbq sauce.
For the peanut butter and jelly witches fingers we just cut sandwiches into strips and put a big of frosting on the end. Top it with a almond, pointy side off the end and add a touch more frosting and red sprinkles to the top of the almond.
There you have it, witches fingers! They would go great with our witches finger cookies or Halloween decorated sugar cookies too. If you want another easy option, our no-bake ghost cookies are THE BEST and so, so easy!
The pretzel leg spider sandwiches were super simple and only require you to cut the sandwich into a round, top with little eyes and stick pretzels in as legs. They are perfect alongside our spider cookies!
Our kids loved the variety and thought they were so fun and festive! This spooky sandwich Halloween party is full of fun decor, delicious eats and eerie drinks.
As the spooky drinks to go with their sandwiches, we made somebody’s watching you apple cider martini mocktail. Simply heat apple cider with two cinnamon sticks for 15-30 minutes then serve with two marshmallows on a skewer dotted with black gel icing for eyes.
We also served up some orange and black bottles sodas as well. They looked perfect in our Mr. Bones’ hand for a funny effect! You can also make a big batch of our crockpot apple cider.
We kept our decor very monochromatic with blacks, whites and a little bit of gray. The rustic picnic table was topped with a black and white plaid blanket as well as gray velvet pumpkins that are from our local HomeGoods store.
That is also where we found the old looking record player, black and white skulls, the skull serving plate and the bone appétit sign.
Our Mr. Bones shapeable skeleton can be stood up or sat down and hold its shape. The beautiful painting was done by a talented local artist, McKella Sawyer. Be sure to check out all of her fabulous work here…
Our table needed that little extra pop but I already felt like we had enough snacks. So, my Confection Deception naked cake topped with little pumpkins was the perfect display for this table!

Get OUT! These are so freakin’ cute. When I saw this recipe, I knew I wanted to try it, but I was scared that the sandwiches wouldn’t turn out as well as yours, but I was able to do it! They were almost too cute to eat (almost is the key word). Not only were they cute, they were also tasty!
