Easy Halloween Party Dinner Recipe
We are huge fans of Hocus Pocus. Have you seen that movie? We love it so much that when I was in charge of our family’s Halloween party, our theme was Hocus Pocus. And it was blast!

WITCH-THEMED FOOD IDEAS
I served an entire witch-themed buffet, (don’t worry it was so much easier than it sounds) and one of our main dishes was this Witch’s Brew Stew.
Our salad was just a simple Caesar salad kit placed in a cauldron! So easy!
Our “witch warts” Halloween food was frozen jalepeno poppers. These were one of the first things to go! We served them with this easy homemade blood sauce.
Everyone loves sandwiches! So why not add sand-witches to your spread!
WITCH’S BROOMSTICK TREATS
I also set out these cute mini witch’s broomsticks using mini Reese’s cups and stick pretzels.
Obviously, I had a little too much fun coming up with all the witch-themed food!
WITCH’S BREW STEW RECIPE
So yes, we had lots of fun witch-themed Halloween foods, but the main dish was this delicious Witch’s Brew Stew. Witch, I mean which if I’m totally honest, was actually a soup. Because fall soups are so delicious.
This Wild Rice and Chicken Soup freezes really well, so you could always make it before your party and reheat it when you are ready to serve it.
Tip: You could actually throw it into the slow cooker and let it thaw/heat slowly.
HOW TO SERVE THE WITCH’S BREW STEW
For extra festiveness, serve this soup out a cauldron!
As a warning, be sure your cauldron is food safe and solid like this inexpensive cauldron from Amazon. I learned this the hard way when as I was transferring the soup into the cauldron, I noticed there was a small hole at the bottom. Luckily, setting the cauldron on a plate solved the problem, but it could have been worse!
Not all cauldrons are created equal. Be sure you get a food-safe cauldron.
