10 Halloween snacks and treats to make with your small ghouls
Okay, so Halloween looks set to be a little different this year what with the covid-crazy still going on, and with the lockdown rules changing so quickly they're making our heads spin, Halloween parties and trick or treat events are, sadly, probably not going to be happening. So if, like us, you have mini monsters who love Halloween and still want to do something to mark the spooky occasion, why not whip up some fun Halloween treats and snacks and have your own creepy celebration at home instead? Here are 10 ghoulishly good ideas to get you started with...
1. Mummified toast
"Mummy, can you make me some toast?" Halloween will go down a screaming treat when you serve up a portion of mummified toast by Spark Recipes for brekkie!
2. Sugar skull cookies
These cookies by Sugar Spice & Glitter are dead fun to make, and dead delish to eat.
3. Frankenstein marshmallow pops
We'll be Frank: we love these Frankenstein marshmallow pops (pictured top) by The Decorated Cookie.
Never has fruit been easier to sneak into your little terrors than with a cunning Halloween snack like these cute boo-nanas. Head over to Life in Pleasantville for the spooky lowdown on how to make them.
5. Hot dog fingers
She Knows certainly knows how to hit the creepy spot when it comes to an easy but fun Halloween snack. Surprise the kids with some severed hot dog fingers in their lunchboxes (and then send your phone to voicemail if the teacher calls to tell you off...).
6. Pumpkin pretzels
You and the wee monsters are far less likely to lose a digit creating these pumpkin pretzels by Hungry Happenings than by carving a traditional Jack O'Lantern. Plus these ones are way more edible and less likely to burn your house down. True dat.
7. Melon monster
This melon monster by Hello Fresh is a sweet treat that packs the right kinda sugar rush punch when it comes to healthy Halloween snacks.
8. Cheese broomsticks
Halloween moods will be flying high thanks to these yummy pretzel and cheese broomsticks by Foodlets.
9. Silly apple bites
These apple bites may be called 'silly' in this easy peasy recipe by Fork and Beans, but it's anything but silly if you manage to trick your kids into a healthy treat this Halloween!
10. Monster pudding pots
How ridiculously cute are these monster avocado chocolate pudding pots by Eats Amazing? Almost too cute to eat, but eat them we will.
