Halloween is all about the kitschy themes and over-the-top decorations. That’s the fun of it, right? Missouri Wines wants to be invited to your scary soirees and ghoul-tastic gatherings this year. Here are some great thematic food ideas and the Missouri wines that pair perfectly.
Start the festivities off right with a Pumpkin-shaped Cheese Ball, easy and adorable. The sharp cheddar and creamy cheese will be a great match for Concord or Norton.
Please all the vampires in the crowd with this Chicken, Beet Salad with Scallions, Goat Cheese and Toast Ghouls. A light, acidic Seyval will compliment the beets and goat cheese.
Crispy, Phyllo Wrapped Hot Dog Mummies are almost too cute to eat… almost. A mild, earthy Chambourcin will bring these treats back to life.
Add Ghostinis with Bloody Murder Sundried Tomato Tapenade to your spooky spread for a classy and festive touch. The acidity of a Norton is the perfect pair for this deliciously devilish dish.
Chocolate Caramel-Corn Candy Cubes are deadly decadent and will blow the traditional Halloween candy out of the water. Pair with a Traminette or sweet Valvin Muscat to bring out the caramel flavors.
Feature the favorite Fall flavor with Ghostly Pumpkin Pudding. Add a pumpkin wine to take it to the next level.
Keep your guests from going after the Trick-or-Treaters’ candy by giving them this Chocolate Candy Pie. This dish is a great excuse to add sparkling wine to the shopping list.
