Great Treats You Can Bring To Halloween Parties
Halloween parties are becoming increasingly popular, with many parents preferring to keep their children in a safe space rather than letting them go out on the streets. The good thing is that Halloween parties don't have to be boring - especially when you have the right treats.
If you're looking for spooky and delicious treats to bring to your Halloween party, stick around - because we have some terrific treats that will impress adults and children.
Some people have a sweet tooth, while others are all about the savoury stuff. Why not cater to everyone with a range of delicious Halloween-themed delectable treats? From crisps to pizza and other goodies, you'll love these ideas.
Spider pizza is simple to make, and it gets the screams going. You can make it in two ways - and of course - cater for vegans or people on gluten-free diets.
The first way is to grab some pizza bases and cut them into a spider shape, then top them with tomato sauce and cheese. Or, you can keep it simple and use black olives to create bodies for the spiders.
Why not cut some bell peppers to make legs coming out of the pizza? It's fun, delicious and will get plenty of laughs.
Finger Hot Dogs
You can create some gruesome finger hot dogs that are bound to get a few screams. All you need are some hot dogs, sausages (meat and veggie options) and breadsticks.
Just cook the sausage of your choice, then slice them in half lengthways - but not all the way through. Then, use a knife to score lines into each 'finger' flesh to create knuckles.
After that, bake the fingers on oven-safe paper until they're crispy on the outside but still juicy inside. Serve with ketchup for dipping, and watch as people squirm at the realistic effect.
Chicken Sandwich Monsters
Another fun idea is to create chicken sandwich monsters, which are surprisingly easy to make. Just cook a chicken sandwich as you usually would, and grab a load of lettuce to put on the bottom bun.
Then, you can use the cheese slices to make teeth and add a squirt of ketchup for a scary effect. Don't forget to get vegan options for people, too, so nobody gets left out.
Avocado Spooky Pasta
When done right, our avocado spooky pasta looks like a pile of gunge and will get people's stomachs churning. Just cook some pasta, grab an avocado, lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper, and combine them.
Once it's cooked, stir in mashed avocado, lemon juice, olive oil, and salt and pepper to taste. You can also add in some chopped tomatoes for a pop of colour. Mozzarella balls are perfect for the eyes and combine well with the pasta, as do olives.
Nothing beats a delicious sweet treat, and Halloween is the perfect excuse to indulge. Cookies, chocolate, cakes and sweets play important roles here - so don't be afraid to add your unique twist on popular treats.
Here are some ideas to get you started.
Blood Oreo Cookies
Blood Oreo cookies are the way to go if you're looking for something gory and delicious. They look great, and they taste even better.
You'll need a pack of Oreos, some red food gel, and white chocolate to make them. Melt the white chocolate in a bowl, then add the food gel until you get a nice red colour.
Then, dip each Oreo into the mixture until it's coated and place it on greaseproof paper to set. Once they're set, enjoy!
Rice Krispie Monsters
Rice Krispie treats are always a hit, but you can make them even better by turning them into monsters. First, make your Rice Krispies as expected - using cereal, marshmallows and butter.
Once they cool down, use some food gel to add eyes and mouths. You can also use edible paint if you want to get creative. Kids also love these treats, so they'll be more than happy to help out and decorate their own monsters.
Pick and Mix
Nothing beats some good pick and mix, so if you're not feeling creative, why not grab some wholesale sweets and let everyone choose their favourites? From jellies to good old-fashioned hard-boiled sweets, wide varieties are available.
Just don't forget to bring some sugar-free sweets and vegan options, so nobody gets left out.
Chocolate bark is a straightforward but effective treat that's perfect for Halloween. Just take some dark chocolate, white chocolate, and your favourite sweets, then melt the chocolate over a pan of boiling water.
Once you've done this, pour it onto baking paper and leave the chocolate to cool down. Add your favourite sweets and leave the bark mix in the freezer.
Marshmallow pops are an enjoyable and easy treat to make, and they're perfect for Halloween parties. Better still, they're cheap, too, as you need some marshmallows, lollipop sticks, white chocolate, and food gel.
Melt the chocolate in a bowl over boiling water, then dip each marshmallow until it's coated. Add your lollipop stick, then place the marshmallows on greaseproof paper to set.
Once they've set, use the food gel to add eyes and mouths. You can get creative with this - so have fun.
Ghost Butter Cups
Last but not least, a delicious and simple treat to make is ghost butter cups. If you don't feel like melting chocolate, buy pre-made peanut butter cups and use squirty cream or chocolate moulds with a ghost-like figure on top.
Few people would turn their noses up at peanut butter cups, which are a tasty and genuinely great treat.
