Easy Halloween Recipes: Simple spooky treats sure to impress on Fright Night

Happy Halloween!

It’s that time of year again… and I am SO happy about it. Halloween is such a good celebration and it always brings out my inner DIY creative self!

  
I have already been working on my pumpkin-carving skills, clown make-up designs and now I’m ready to get spooky in the kitchen. 

If you’re anything like me and don’t actually have a real knack for baking… have no fear! Just follow these simple steps for making some sure-to-impress super easy treats. Trust me if I can do it – you can!

BOO-nana Gouls

Omg how cute do these yummy bananas look?! And the best thing of all… you only need three ingredients and they take such little time.

   
Ingredients 

  • Bananas
  • White chocolate 
  • Milk chocolate chips 

Method

  1. Cut the banana into halves
  2. Use lollipop sticks to skewer each banana  and pop them in the freezer…. Be patient! It will take a couple of hours…
  3. Melt a bowl of white chocolate over a hob of boiling water 
  4. Once the bananas have completely frozen, dip them in the chocolate and smother them in as much chocolate as you wish 
  5. Place on greaseproof paper and top with two chocolate chips for eyes

* You can even make this Halloween treat healthy by switching white chocolate for fat free natural yogurt

Spooky Spiders

These spooky spider treats are so easy to make and something I’ve incorporated from a house favourite of ours. I’ve turned my go-to treat recipe for chocolate peanut butter cornflake cakes into a scary and delicious fright night snack.

  
Again all you need is just a few ingredients and you’ve got a winner! I mean can you even go wrong with the perfect combo of peanut butter and chocolate? Hell no!

Ingredients 

  • 4 cups of cornflakes
  • 1 medium bar of milk chocolate
  • 1 large tbsp of peanut butter
  • Worm sweeties/liquorice laces/strawberry laces
  • Mini smarties

  
Method

  1. Melt the chocolate and peanut butter in a bowl over boiling water (or in the microwave in short pulses)
  2. Add cornflakes to the gooey mixture and stir until covered
  3. On greaseproof paper lay out your spider legs as you wish
  4. Top the legs with the cornflake mix in the shape of bodies
  5. Add two mini smarties for eyeballs
  6. Leave to chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours

I hope you have go at either of these recipes yourself for Halloween – they really are great fun for the kids and such a simple way to impress your friends.

  
Now pop the kettle on and enjoy your favourite horror with these tasty spooky snacks!
