Yes, You Can Have Chick-Fil-A Cater Your Halloween Party

Throwing a Halloween party this year? If so, do you find yourself intimidated at the notion of having to prepare all the food yourself, just so your costumed guests can idly pick at it? Does just the idea of purchasing store-bought cookies and cupcakes terrify you? If only there was some way that you could have your Halloween party catered for you... Perhaps by some sort of restaurant well-known for its chicken?

If you're currently facing such a dilemma, then Chick-fil-A has an answer for you. If you weren't already aware, Chick-fil-A actually does catering for a large number of events, serving up everything from chicken nuggets to biscuits to fruit cups at weddings, graduations, or parties. Catering Menu Prices' review of the company's catering service is surprisingly pleasant for a fast-food catering service, noting that presentation and set-up is all covered in the cost, alongside the provision of utensils and plates to go along with the food. The only drawback, they note, is that most of your dinner will consist mainly of chicken (though, this really shouldn't come as any surprise considering you're ordering from Chick-fil-A) and you'll need to purchase your own heating equipment to keep the food warm. 

Curious about ordering Chick-fil-A for your Halloween party? If you are, it may be useful to know that the chain even provides free catering-centric recipes to make your party all the more frightful.

Have you ever made Chick-fil-A tender mummies?

In case you were having trouble making your Halloween party look spooky using Chick-fil-A — which is understandable considering Chick-fil-A doesn't exactly scream "terrifying" — then the chicken chain's catering team has some ideas for you.

Using its own "Halloween hacks," Chick-fil-A suggests three ideas on how to "dress up" your catering order. The first hack involves wrapping Chick-n-Strips in strips of pre-made dough and dotting them with edible candy eyes to resemble mummies. The second hack has you breaking the chain's chocolate chunk cookies in half and decorating them with red icing and miniature marshmallows to resemble blood-red vampire fangs. The third and final hack is a bit more complicated, and involves having the customer hollow out an orange and design it with the face of a jack-o-lantern before filling the interior with a Chick-fil-A fruit cup.

This isn't the first time Chick-fil-A has suggested "hacks" for those who have ordered catering. Should you already be planning your Christmas party, Chick-fil-A recommends making "Christmas trees" from its fruit cups and some blocks of cheese and crafting ice cream sandwiches made with chocolate chunk cookies, your choice of ice cream, and crushed-up peppermint candy canes. 

If you don't feel like shelling the money out to get some nuggets and sandwiches sent to your house, you can also try these Chick-fil-A copycat recipes to save some money while still offering the familiar taste of Chick-fil-A at your next party.
