Fun Halloween Food Idea for Kids: Spider Taco Ring

Halloween is quickly approaching, are you hosting a Halloween Party? Or maybe just make a fun dinner for the family before trick-or-treating. We are big fans of Halloween, and while my teens love all the scary movies and such, me – not so much.

I much rather create a Halloween dinner that everyone will eat instead of something gross and scary that no one will touch and it just goes to waste. This Spider Taco Ring is sure to be a hit with the kiddos and adults!

HALLOWEEN DINNER IDEAS -- This fun kid-friendly Spider Taco Ring is fun to make and eat!

So fun! And really easy too! We used the same recipe that everyone loves for Taco Ring, and added the spider legs made from breadsticks, lettuce in the center and black olives for the eyes.

“Spidey” was so fun to create, I’ll have to admit though, this one was not my idea, all the credit for this creative idea goes to Doug.

Going to a Halloween Party? I think this would be an easy Halloween party food and be a hit there as well. I would leave the legs off for traveling and just assemble after you arrive.
