When it comes to Halloween parties as an adult, you have a few options. If you have little kids, you could go down the route of a children-focused party. You could do a “typical” adult Halloween party, where you make loads of themed drinks. Or, you can choose to throw a 420 Halloween party.
But what exactly is that? Put simply, it’s a Halloween party meant for stoners–those who enjoy the greener things in life. Just like an alcohol-based party, a green Halloween includes 420 Halloween treats, super fun games, stoner decor, and more.
420 Halloween treats, of course, are the equivalent of themed drinks. That naturally makes them one of the most important pieces of the party. Instead of trying to come up with some random edibles, here’s a list of delicious recipes you can make.
Almost all of them are modifiable to be made with or without THC, and include alternatives to make them allergy-friendly. That being said, if you or anyone you know has a dairy allergy, I highly recommend using Earth Balance butter. It’s vegan and safe for those with dairy issues.
If you’re super gung-ho and love making your own THC-infused oil or butter, feel free to check out this tutorial. And, don’t forget these accessories. Otherwise, stick with a well-known oldie-but-goodie: The Magical Butter Maker. Just remember for any recipe, it’s a 1:1 substitute of edible butter:regular butter. Regardless of how you make your infused products, you’re going to have a rockin’ 420 Halloween.
So, check out these 420 Halloween treats, make them for your guests, and settle in for an awesome, stoney night.
