Halloween is the perfect time of year for you and the kids to get creative in the kitchen with fun cakes, drinks and even the odd healthy snack! Little ones will love helping you put together and decorate some of these recipes, and there’s plenty of opportunity for them to use their imaginations to create their own creepy creations.
Whether you’re having a party or enjoying some family time this Halloween, these 7 easy recipes definitely won’t have you running scared!
- Haunted Cupcakes from Today’s Parent
Sink your teeth into these amazing chocolate cupcakes and you’ll find they have a surprise in the middle as well. Today’s Parent helpfully give you the basic recipe so you can decorate them as you wish with all sorts of ghoulish characters, but we think we love the Oreo bat idea the most!
- Oreo Caramel Apples from Mom Foodie at bloomi.com
Continuing with the Oreo theme is this Halloween version of a classic Autumn treat – the caramel apple. Gooey, delicious and uber easy to make, they look impressively unappetising which makes them the perfect graveyard-themed centrepiece for your Halloween party spread. Let the kids have fun crushing the Oreos and rolling the sticky caramel-covered apple in the crumbs.
- Spooky Fog Drinks from Kids Activities Blog
If you really want to wow your kids and party guests this year, then you need to try these super impressive and super spooky fog drinks. All it takes is just a few simple ingredients and easy steps to create something that will amaze the children and make their Halloween extra special!
- Boo-nana Pops from Skinny Taste
Who said Halloween couldn’t be healthy? Skinny Taste’s frozen ‘boo-nana’ pops recipe is easy peasy and perfect for little hands to help with. With all the nutritional info listed on site, we were happy to see this ghostly little treat comes in at under 100 calories too – perfect!
- Pumpkin Krispies from Yummy Healthy Easy
It’s not Halloween without some pumpkins! These cute little krispie treats couldn’t be more simple to make and are just the thing to let the kids get stuck in with helping. Use their favourite sweets to add eyes and a nose and make faces that are as cute or scary as you like!
- Dracula’s Dentures from The Girl Who Ate Everything
We think these Dracula’s Dentures are such a clever idea which looks amazing and tastes just as great! Make things easy for yourself by buying ready made cookie dough (or even ready made cookies!) and letting the kids assemble the red frosting, marshmallow teeth and almond fangs.
- Mini Spider Pizzas from Recipe Runner
By using just black olives, the kids can make mini pizzas that taste delicious but look very creepy crawly indeed! This could be a fun activity to keep little Halloween party guests entertained, or just an after school treat for the family to enjoy (and is a night off the usual boring dinner prep too!)
