Chocolate gold coins, goldfish crackers and a treasure chest cake are just a few of many fun ideas for pirate-themed party food. Incorporate decorations and a seashell pasta salad, and the pirate fare is sure to impress.
Pirate-themed bashes are popular with party-goers of all ages. Ideas for pirate grub are plentiful. For snacks, consider fashioning boat-shaped vessels out of folded paper, and fill the boats with goldfish crackers or trail mix. A bowl overflowing with chocolate gold coins imitating pirates' loot provides a sweet nibble.
A seashell pasta salad is a more substantial offering for hungry guests. This salad is easily made by cooking the pasta according to the directions on the package. Once the pasta is cooked and cooled, coat the noodles with mayonnaise and other additions such as chopped chicken, celery, onions or grapes. Season to taste, and serve chilled.
A treasure chest cake topped with candy is the perfect desert. Bake two cake mixes according to the directions, using 9 by 13 pans. Once the cakes finish cooling, stack them on a board, and frost with chocolate frosting. Pile candied necklaces, coins and rings on the top, allowing pieces to spill over the sides of the cake. For added effect, wrap a piece of cardboard with foil, and frost the top of the foil-wrapped board. This board can be propped up with skewers to resemble a lid. Serve with vanilla bean ice cream.
