Halloween Snacks for kids
Instead of the usual sandwiches, at Halloween why not surprise the kids with these spooky snacks!
A round cracker with a slice of red cheese cut into circle on top. Decorate to look like a pumpkin with either soft cheese piped or a white cheese cut into shapes.
Cut two slices of bread into skull shapes. Cut eye and mouth shapes into the top slice. Spread with butter. Spread the bottom slice thickly with jam and place the top slice on letting the jam ooze through the gaps.
Devil egg eyes
Slice a hard boiled egg in two. Scoop out the yolk and in a separate bowl mix in some mayonnaise. Spoon egg mixture back into boiled egg. To make the eye look bloodshot use tomato ketchup.
Ice scream eyes
Scope of raspberry ripple ice cream with a cherry on top. Add strawberry sauce for more blood.
Arrange chicken wings on a plate to look like bats.
Simply a bowl of dried fruit. Red berries and raisins look good.
Blood and guts
Make up a red jelly and allow to set. Chop up jelly and add red fruits for a gory look.
Slices of peeled apple with a strawberry (blood) sauce.
Simply cocktail sausages with red or green peppers. Cut a small (1cm) slice out of the top of the sausage to form a shelf for the finger nail to rest. Cut the pepper into finger nail shapes and add a bit of soft cheese on the back to stick it onto the sausage.
Cover a fairy cake with green butter icing (or add green food colouring to cake mixture – a lot less messy and time consuming). Cover an ice cream cone in melted chocolate and allow to set. Add a little spare butter icing to the base of the cone to stick it to a chocolate digestive to form a hat. Cut up some liquorice laces and add to the top of the fairy cake to form hair. Place the hat on top. Use dolly mixtures for eyes and pipe black icing to form the rest of the face.
Any red fruit juice or squash.
Chocolate milkshake, mixed with ice cream and crushed chocolate flakes.
Lastly why not serve up crisps in a bowl with plastic skeleton or bats for decoration.
