Looking to whip up some spooky treats for your Halloween party? We’ve got you covered! From banana ghosts to eye scream treats, your Halloween party menu has never been easier- or spookier! Here are some delicious Halloween recipes that your kids will love.
Ever tried freezing bananas? They taste spookily like creamy ice cream and when covered in white chocolate, they’re absolutely delicious! To make your banana ghosts, peel 4 medium bananas and cut in half. Push a lolly stick into the middle of each piece. Place them on top of a baking tray lined with baking parchment. In a small bowl, melt 200g of white chocolate (broken into chunks). Once melted, coat each banana in half using a pastry brush. Next, sprinkle desiccated coconut onto the chocolate, until completely coated. Using dark chocolate chips, add chocolate eyes and a mouth. Freeze the lollies for at least 4 hours then serve!
Using ripe apples and festive candy pieces put together your apple monsters. Kids can get involved with this one- help them remove a wedge from the apple to form the mouth, then let your little ones assemble their monsters however they like!
Eyes Scream Treats
To make this gruesome but tasty desert, you need 1 tub of vanilla ice cream, strawberry syrup, a pack of M&Ms (blue, green or brown) and black icing. Firstly, scoop ice cream into balls on each serving plate. Drizzle syrup onto each ball to create a bloodshot effect. Then, put an M&M (logo facing down) on the centre of each scoop. Add a dot of black icing on top to create the pupil.
All you need for this one is some marshmallows, a straw, some candy and your little one’s imagination! To assemble, insert a straw into the marshmallow. Press in two chocolate pieces for eyes. Get some chocolate caramel logs and cut into strips, then use to form a mouth.
Caramel Apples with a Twist
These caramel dipped apples are truly spooktacular- with the addition of crushed oreos. For this, you need a packet of caramel sweets, 5 apples, 2 tablespoons of water, 12 oreos coarsely chopped, yellow and red food colouring and white chocolate. Firstly, insert a wooden pop stick into the stem end of each apple. Cook your caramels in a saucepan on low heat until they are completely melted. Then dip apples in your caramel mixture 1 at a time, then spoon the remaining caramel over each apple until they are completely coated. Roll the apples in the chopped oreo cookies. Then place on baking tray and let them stand for at least 25 minutes. Melt chocolate as directed on the packet and stir on four drops of yellow food colouring and one drop of red colouring. Cool the chocolate for 15 minutes and drizzle over apples. Let the apples stand until firm.
