These are the 40+ Best Halloween Recipes for Instant Pot breakfasts, entrees, and festive desserts to feed a crowd before trick-or-treating—and all month long! Whether you’re looking for a hearty meal to brave the cold weather or hoping to start the night off with a healthy option, we’ve got you covered!

a collage of four recipes featured in the Halloween recipe roundup: on the left is a slice of candy corn cheesecake, colored in the classic candy corn colors, then on the top right is a yellow bowl of chili garnished with yellow tortilla chips and sour cream and cilantro, on the bottom middle is a steak and cheddar sandwich with lots of yellow cheese sauce dripping under the bun, and then the bottom right is a bowl full of Instant Pot pumpkin pie steel cut oats

Halloween might be all about candy, but let’s not forget the other meals of the day! It’s a fun and exciting time of year, especially if you have little ones at home.

We like to celebrate Halloween with recipes that warm everyone up before a night of trick-or-treating.

These are the best Instant Pot Halloween recipes to add a sweet or seasonal flavor to every meal of your day. Whether you’re feeding a small family or throwing a party, you’ll love these festive recipes made in the Instant Pot.

(And at the end, we just had to include some of our best non-pressure cooker Halloween Recipes from our baking blog, Barbara Bakes. The popcorn (recipe #40) is a MUST and works with any leftover Halloween candy!)
