Spooky Halloween delights

POSTED ON 09 OCTOBER 2017

These incredibly creepy Halloween ideas are sure to impress your guests at this year’s party – and they’re not just for children!

You don’t see chocolate spider cookies everyday and if you’re anything like us, then you don’t want to, except at Halloween. Cover Oreo cookies in melted chocolate and use liquorice Catherine wheels for the spiders’ legs. Finish by using white and black icing pens to create the freaky eyes!

Spooky-eyed and tasty tacos are super easy to make and you can cater them to suit anybody. Simply fill taco shells with your favourite fillings; this could be spicy beef mince with salad, a mix of veggies and salsa or even fajita ingredients. Top with either squirts of mayonnaise or sour cream and then add sliced up olives and cheesy hair.

A sushi brain would make a great centre piece to your Halloween dishes. All you need is a ripe avocado, cream cheese, seasoned cooked sushi rice, smoked salmon and red tobiko (flying fish roe). Check out the recipe here: www.foodnetwork.com/holidays-and-parties/packages/halloween/how-to-make-a-sushi-brain-for-halloween

Alcoholic jelly shots are fun and wacky, you can even make a variety non-alcoholic shots for the kids – just don’t get them mixed up!

  1. Make up some Strawberry Jelly and add Malibu rum.
  2. Pour into shot glasses only filling 3/4th of the glass.
  3. Chill until they are half set and then add a gummy worm and return to the fridge until fully set.
  4. Other flavours: Pineapple Jelly and Malibu rum
  5. Blueberry, sprite and vodka
  6. Raspberry and vodka

Pumpkin cheese fondue will definitely be a favourite at your party. You can use peppers, celery, cucumber, carrots and even bread sticks to dive into the delicious cheesy bowl. Find the recipe here: www.food.com/recipe/pumpkin-cheese-fondue-72105

Worm sandwiches anyone? All you need to create gruesome rolls is hot dogs, buns and ketchup. Simply slice the hot dogs, boil them until they curl, add ketchup and fill a bun. We’re not sure your partner will want these for their packed lunch at work though!

Sticky caramel apple cupcakes are mouth watering and are super pleasing to the eye, unlike the rest of our recommendations! Topped with chopped pecans they are sure to disappear fast. Check out the recipe here: www.food.com/recipe/caramel-apple-cupcakes-39180?scaleto=12.0&st=null&mode=us

Trick or treat with blood beetroot cocktails for your guests. First, you need to make beetroot lemonade. Stir together 200g of grated raw beetroot, the juice of 8 lemons and 200g of golden caster sugar. Pop this into the fridge for at least an hour and stir occasionally to dissolve the sugar. Pour the mixture through a sieve into a large jug to get rid of any pulp. Now for the fun bit! Pour 25ml of the beetroot lemonade into each glass, followed by 50ml of Aperol, which can be found at Waitrose, a few ice cubes and top with Prosecco.
