Spooktacular Halloween treats for kids
11 October 2023
Halloween is just around the corner, and what better way to celebrate this spooktacular holiday than by creating some devilishly delicious Halloween-themed food with these frighteningly fun and easy recipes?
Start the Halloween festivities with a classic favourite – Mummy Dogs! Wrapped in puff pastry, these spooky hot dogs resemble mummies! Simply wrap the dough around each hot dog, leaving a small gap for the mummy’s eyes. For eyes, add dots of mustard or ketchup, or candy eyeballs.
Monster Mac and Cheese
Turn ordinary mac and cheese into a monster mash! Prepare your favourite mac and cheese recipe with some green food colouring and top each bowl with candy eyeballs. Your kids will love digging into these colourful and fun monster green bowls.
Spooky Spider Deviled Eggs
Deviled eggs get a creepy makeover with these spooky spiders. Make your favourite deviled egg filling and pipe it into halved hard-boiled eggs. For the spider effect, use black olives sliced into halves or quarters as the body and legs. These little critters are as fun to make as they are to eat!
The sweet and syrupy pie will tantalise your taste buds and is perfect for Halloween. If cherries are difficult to find you can use other fruits or use frozen fruit instead. Cut out a Jack-o-lantern’s face into the pastry and place it onto the pie for a real spooky effect. If you don’t have time to make the pastry, simply use ready-rolled pastry.
This recipe is simple, quick, and sure to get everyone in the mood for trick-or-treating. All you need is a packet of instant oatmeal, pumpkin puree, and your choice of toppings. We recommend candy eyeballs for an extra touch of ghoulish goodness. You can add coconut, chia seeds, chocolate chips, and sprinkles if you like.
