It’s Spooky Season! Gather the ghouls and host a frightfully festive feast. Here are five recipes to get the party started…

Matcha Popcorn

Matcha powder is finely ground green tea leaves that whisk up into a tasty beverage like Matcha Lemonade. Or a smoothie like Smoothie Bowls. Or to make this sweet-n-salty, oh-so-lovely snack. Stovetop popcorn meets our Traditional Matcha. Here’s another recipe to add to your must-try list. Then keep things poppin, with these popcorn recipes:
Popcorn Balls with Ghost Salt
Buttery Rougarou Popcorn
Schichimi Togarashi Popcorn

Spooky Halloween Rootbeer

This sweet, bubbly root beer is perfect for topping a big frosty mug of ice cream or sipping on its own. We use dry ice for a spooky effect, and it adds a little effervescence. If you want to capture the bubbles, be sure to bottle it quickly while the brew is still bubbling!

Pumpkin Spice Pulled Pork

If you’re thinking we’ve taken this pumpkin spice trend a little too far, hear us out! The ubiquitous cinnamon-clove-nutmeg-allspice flavors in Pumpkin Pie Spice is perfect for so much more than pie. We combined Pumpkin Pie Spice with brown sugar, smoked black pepper and cayenne for a dry rub that ends in perfectly-spiced pulled pork. Load this up on buns with slaw and your favorite barbecue sauce. Try it, pumpkin! More feed-a-crowd recipes:

Honeycrisp Apple Sangria

We adapted this libation from Food and Wine, subbing out the schnapps for more ginger, cloves and apple. We dredge the glass rims in Cinna Nilla Sugar so that each sip delivers the full essence of Autumn. This Sangria is perfect for fall days that don’t feel so fall-ish yet. Cool, refreshing while still capturing the flavors of fall. More party time, big batch sips:

Pumpkin Spice Rum Cocktail

Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal Cookies

These delightful cookies are reminiscent of the pink-packaged Mother’s Iced Oatmeal cookies which store owner Anne ate loads of while watching after-school specials and drinking Ovaltine. As much as she loves her memories, these cookies are way better. The pumpkin plays perfectly with the oatmeal, Vietnamese Cinnamon and Pumpkin Pie Spice. They make for a delicious dessert or a quick breakfast. More pumpkin treats to try:
