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.
|Large spinach wraps|| |
|Sandwich filling of your choice|| |
|Décor: cheese slices, nori sheet, black olives, cucumber, carrots, cherry tomato, red pepper|| |
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?
|1 can of crescent dough|| |
|10 to 12 hot dogs|| |
|3 cheese slices|| |
|2 tbsp butter, melted|| |
|Mustard, mayo or tomato sauce|| |
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!
|4 large bananas|| |
|1 cup vanilla Greek yoghurt|| |
|2 tbsp powdered sugar|| |
|24 pcs mini chocolate chips|| |
|8 popsicle sticks|| |
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.
|24 pcs lychees, canned|| |
|24 pcs fresh blueberries|| |
|36 pcs maraschino cherries|| |
|36 pcs raisins|| |
|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.
|Plain cookies or crackers|| |
|Pretzel sticks|| |
|Fruit jam or peanut butter|| |
|Almond slices or candy corn|| |
|Black tube icing or melted chocolate|
Enjoy gobbling up these treats and snacks for kids this Halloween! Just make sure to keep things spooky yet healthy to avoid candy and sugar overload.
