Celebrating the last day of October is extra fun when you have spooky Halloween treats to share with the family. It’s even better when they are easy enough to make so the kids can help out!

Need some spine-tingling ideas? Here are a few you can try. All you need are simple ingredients, a few pairs of creative hands and hungry tummies.

1. Tortilla Wrap-enstein

Have you tried making a bento lunch before? If yes, then you will enjoy making these Frankenstein-inspired wraps for Halloween.

You can fill these spooky Halloween treats with rice and beans if you’re craving boo-ritos. Or use your go-to sandwich fillings like ham, chicken or veggies.

As for Frankie’s face, you can be as detailed or funny as you like. Get the kids to work and play around with your cookie cutters to make his hair, nose and mouth.

Ingredients Procedure
Large spinach wraps
  • Fill each tortilla with your favourite filling, then wrap and roll it burrito style.
Sandwich filling of your choice
  • Decorate the top of your sandwich wrap and make it look like a monster, zombie or Frankenstein.
Décor: cheese slices, nori sheet, black olives, cucumber, carrots, cherry tomato, red pepper
  • You can also use toothpicks with cubed cheese, whole olives or grapes to make Frankie’s head bolts.

2. Yummy Mummies

If your kids love snacking on pigs in a blanket, then these hot dog mummies will be gone in seconds. Make sure to have lots of extras.

I love serving these adorable Halloween-themed mummies with different dipping sauces. But you can always stick to the usual mustard or tomato sauce.

The best part is you can make these with store-bought dough and wrap each hot dog imperfectly. Who has seen a clean-looking ancient mummy anyway?

Ingredients Procedure
1 can of crescent dough
  • Preheat the oven to 191C.
10 to 12 hot dogs
  • Cut each cheese slice into four strips, about the same width as the hot dog.
3 cheese slices
  • Unroll the crescent dough, then use kitchen scissors to make thin strips.
2 tbsp butter, melted
  • Lay each hot dog on top of your cheese strips. Then wrap them together in crescent dough. Make sure to leave a gap on one end for the mummy face.
Mustard, mayo or tomato sauce
  • Place the hot dogs on a greased baking tray, cheese side down. Brush the top with some melted butter.
  • Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until lightly golden.
  • Use toothpicks and mustard or mayo to draw the eyes of each mummy dog.

3. Frozen Boo-nana Ghosts

Here’s an idea if you are looking for healthy but spooky Halloween treats. Why not turn bananas into ghosts by dipping them in gut-friendly yoghurt?

I like how this spooky treat let me sneak in some probiotics into my kids’ dessert. You can play around with this basic recipe, too.

For instance, you can drizzle some peanut butter on each frozen banana to make mummies. Alternatively, swap the fruit with biscotti, dip it in melted white chocolate and make a biscotti ghost. I like calling it boo-scotti, though!

Ingredients Procedure
4 large bananas
  • Line a baking tray with parchment paper.
1 cup vanilla Greek yoghurt
  • Peel and slice the bananas in half cross-wise. You can also use a zigzag or crinkle cutter to make jagged edges.
2 tbsp powdered sugar
  • Insert a popsicle stick at the bottom of each banana. Pop the tray of bananas into the freezer for half an hour or overnight.
24 pcs mini chocolate chips
  • Mix the yoghurt and powdered sugar in a glass or tall cup. Then dip each frozen banana into the mixture.
8 popsicle sticks
  • Place the chocolate chips onto the dipped bananas to make the ghostly eyes and mouth.
  • Put the banana ghosts back into the freezer for an hour to let the yoghurt set.

4. Eyeball Mocktail Punch

Your party feast of spooky Halloween treats is not complete without refreshments. The kids will surely enjoy sipping grape or strawberry juice in Halloween-themed glasses.

But if you want a ghoulish fruit punch, why not throw in an eerie eyeball or two — lychee and cherry eyeballs, that is. Serve these and get ready to earn an “ooh” and “eww” from your spook-tators!

Oh, for adults, you can serve your cocktails in martini glasses, then use skewered lychee eyeballs as garnish.

Ingredients Procedure
24 pcs lychees, canned
  • Drain the lychees, then insert a blueberry inside. Do the same step for the cherries and raisins.
24 pcs fresh blueberries
  • Combine all the juices (about a litre each) in a large punch bowl or pitcher. Top up with sparkling water.
36 pcs maraschino cherries
  • Add the fruity eyeballs and let them float on top.
36 pcs raisins
  • Serve your juice in clear mugs or tall glasses with ice.
Blueberry or grape juice, chilled
Cherry or cranberry juice, chilled
Sparkling water, chilled

5. Creepy Crackers

Do you have cookies and pretzel sticks in your pantry? A little creativity is all you need to make these Halloween party-ready!

Turn them into cute spider biscuits, and you got a spooky snack for kids to enjoy. You can also use them as a cupcake topper or a spooky ghost cake décor.

Ingredients Procedure
Plain cookies or crackers
  • Break the pretzel sticks into smaller pieces to make the spider legs.
Pretzel sticks
  • Spread some jam or peanut butter on one cookie, then stick the pretzel legs before topping it with another cookie. You can also add two almond slices or candy corn to make the spider fangs.
Fruit jam or peanut butter
  • To make the spider eyes, press two marshmallows flat. Use a dab of chocolate or frosting to stick them on top of each cookie sandwich.
Almond slices or candy corn
  • Add more icing at the centre of each marshmallow to make the spider eyes.
Small marshmallows
Black tube icing or melted chocolate
