Double, double, toil and trouble– make this Witch’s Brew Stew for your Halloween party!
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!
You can see all the party details of our Hocus Pocus Halloween Party right here.
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.
We also had “Cast a Spell Salad”
And Witch Warts
Can you tell I had a little too much fun coming up with all the witch-themed food?
And, I digress. So yes, we had lots of fun witch-themed Halloween foods, but the main dish was a Stew.
Which if I’m totally honest, was actually a soup. Because fall soups are so delicious.
Witch’s Brew Stew Recipe
You have 2 options for this brew stew.
1. Confession time. For the Hocus Pocus party, I bought a homemade Wild Rice and Chicken soup from my local grocery store. Throwing a party from start to finish can be a lot of work. Since I was doing the decor, food, and games solo, I chose to simplify and buy a Wild Rice & Chicken soup from the deli. Choosing already prepared food is a great way to simplify party prep!
2. But.… if you have the time and want a really great recipe for Wild Rice and Chicken Soup, then I suggest using the following recipe. It’s our absolute favorite! I actually had plans to make this recipe for our Halloween party, but I knew I just wouldn’t have time. Had I been on my A game, I would have prepared a big double batch ahead of time.
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.
So there you have it! 2 easy ways to serve a Witch’s Brew Stew at your Halloween party!
Tip: Be sure to serve it out of cauldron for extra festiveness!
Just Be Warned…
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. 🙂
And now, here’s the recipe!
