by Tefal Team on 24 October 2016
  • Halloween is just a few days away, giving you and your family the perfect excuse to embrace your spooky sides. Whether you’re heading out for a spot of trick or treating, having a party at home or just staying in to watch frightening movies, you need some treats to hand that embrace the ‘spirit’ of Halloween.

    With Halloween being a great day for kids, it can be fun to get them involved in whipping up some themed sweet treats. Here are some tasty and creepy ideas for you to make with your little monsters in time for All Hallows’ Eve:

    • Chocolate cookie monsters

      Cookies are always a bit of a winner and aren’t too difficult to make, even if you’ve never tried them before. This is why this recipe for chocolate cookie monsters from Self Proclaimed Foodie is sure to be a big hit. As well as getting your little ones to help with making the cookies, they can also create spooky and funny eyes to decorate the biscuits with, which will keep them busy for a while.

    • Marshmallow eyeballs

      If you’re looking for a simple and quick Halloween treat, these marshmallow eyeballs from Eats Amazing are a great choice. All you need are some marshmallows, food colouring and sweets to create effective and slightly scary edible eyeballs. These are a good idea if you’re making a few different things as they’ll look great on a snack table.

    • Rice Krispie mummies

      One of the best things about Rice Krispie treats is that they are simple and quick to make. On top of this, your little ones can get involved easily, so whipping them up is an ideal activity for your family. If you want to make them more suited to Halloween, check out this great recipe from Creme de la Crumb, which will help you make up handy and slightly spooky mummies in no time.

    • Spooky spider cakes

      Cupcakes are ideal for decorating ready for All Hallows’ Eve as they are such a versatile dessert. Lavender and Lovage has a delicious recipe for chocolate cupcakes and great tips on turning them into spiders. While she uses liquorice, you can use a variety of sweets to create a similar effect. Just make the cakes and let your kids go crazy with the decorating!

    • Toffee apples

      It wouldn’t be Halloween without toffee apples, so why not try making these at home? While your kids won’t be able to do anything with the hot caramel, they can choose different shades of food colouring or glitter to add to it to give your toffee apples a more magical appearance. Use this fab recipe from Eat Like a Girl as a basic guide and then decorate them how you want.

  • If you really want to take your Halloween creations to the next level, why not make an entire monster out of food?
