Preparing halloween party food needn’t be scary this year, because we’ve got you covered. We’ve scoured the internet tfor creepy creations to add a little fear factor to your Halloween party. So whether you’re throwing a fun adult get together or a spooky kids bash, these quick and easy recipes will get things off to a good start…
1. Witches Fingers and Dip: What’s particularly nice about this recipe is that unlike many halloween treats there is no artificial colouring involved. All it takes to make these witches fingers is a a little cookie dough and some strawberry jam. 2. Jalapeno Mummies: Give your jalapeno poppers a scary twist this halloween by wrapping them up like mummies. This one’s are similar to the sausage roll mummies above but with an added spicy kick.
3. Spooky Spiders Web Cupcakes: When it comes to party food you can’t go far wrong with a classic yellow cupcake. The best part of this recipe is that it comes with a handy video tutorial for creating the spiderweb topping. 4. Tombstone Chocolate Pots: The only thing that’s being laid to rest with these sweet snacks is our diet plan! You can keep up the halloween theme while providing guests with something a little classier by following this recipe.
5. Printable Stickers: Jazz up ordinary sauces and containers this halloween by using these printable labels. There’s everything from Toadstool clippings to Spider’s Legs and Werewolf Fur. 6: Creepy Cheeseboard: Even a standard cheeseboard can be given a creepy makeover. Get together some halloween props and go all out.
7. Pumpkin Punch: This is one for the adults. A cocktail comprised of spiced rum, orange juice, lemon juice, spiced syrup and pumpkin puree. If you really want to set the bar high, serve your punch in a hollowed-out pumpkin with some dry ice for a theatrical flourish. 8: Spooky Peppers: These shredded chicken and rice stuffed peppers are a fun way to provide a healthy and filling snack at your party. You can easily make them vegetarian by substituting the chicken element with mushrooms or black beans.
9: Mummy Sausage Rolls: These sweet little snacks are courtesy of celebrity chef Loraine Pascale. 10: Eyeball Martini: We love how realistic these matcha blood orange martinis look and if you want to make an non-alcoholic version you could easily just create some of the lychee-blueberry eyeballs and serve them on the side!
11: Apple and Strawberry Monsters: Something about these healthy bites really remind us of minions. Why not try and get the kids to eat their five a day by making fruit and veg look a little silly? 12: Ghostly Milkshakes: For these adorable ghost milkshakes you’ll need 6 scoops of vanilla bean ice cream, 1 cup milk, whipped topping and candy eyes.
13: Skeleton Gingerbread Men: These gingerbread skeletons are cute and creepy in equal measure and they couldn’t be simpler to make! 14: Homemade Butterbeer: Make Harry Potter’s favourite drink this halloween by combining ginger beer, cream soda and a homemade butterscotch sauce.
