I can't believe Halloween is less than a week away. I am attending 2 Halloween parties and my friends and I already have the menu planned. You don't have to break the bank while hosting a party. I typically do it pot luck style which can save money as it allows everyone to contribute.

Here are some good frugal recipes if you have a party or maybe just want to get in the Halloween or Fall spirit:
  • This is a super easy Sweet and Salty Halloween treat. It is pretzels, Hershey kisses and candy corn. It is quite the crowd pleaser too. I make this for little teacher's gifts and for my kids Halloween parties at school.
  • This Halloween Snack Mix is very frugal. It comes out to be about $0.45 a serving. It serves 8 people. So if you are having a Halloween party or just need a snack be sure to make this one. It is a crowd pleaser for sure.
  • It is getting chillier and it is time for Chili. I love that this meal can be doubled or tripled so it can feed a lot of people. It is a twist on a typical chili recipe. The other thing I like about this White Chicken Chili is it can be prepared in a crock pot too.
  • This simple Apple Cranberry Tart is quick and easy and can be made at a moment's notice. Served with a scoop of ice cream or whip cream it makes for a yummy dessert.
