Eat, drink and be scary this Halloween

Halloween Chocolate Apples 6 Custom3

Halloween is around the corner, much to the excitement of my two children.

The decorations have come down from the attic, last year’s costumes are dusted off and many pumpkins have taken residence in our kitchen in preparation for the big day.

But while Halloween used to be a day celebrated mostly by those under ten, these days it has been embraced by not only the young but also the young at heart. The decorations and costumes are getting ever more elaborate and there’s more themed parties than ever before. But what should you serve at your spooktacular event? Read on…

1. This chocolate and peanut butter swirl cake from Elizabeth’s Kitchen Diary is guarded by a fearsome (but cute) spider. It would make a frightfully good centrepiece!

2. These Rice Krispies ghosts will be a sure fire hit and you can even hand them out to cute trick or tricksters. Get the recipe at Kerry Cooks

3. Spooky goings on at the graveyard - satisfy sweet-soothed zombies with this gruesome cake from AO Life

4. A much healthier treat for your little ghouls - chocolate apples from Fab Food 4 All

5. Nothing creepier than these (naturally green!) witch fingers from Veggie Desserts

6. Trick or treat doesn’t have to mean a trip to the dentist… Serve these healthy Halloween treats from Sew White instead!

7. Have fun making these easy spider pops with the kids by Eats Amazing - just resist eating them all!

8. These cute Halloween cupcakes from Little Sunny Kitchen are sure to be hugely popular at any party so it’s best to make a double batch.

9. This Meringue Bone Palace cake from Domestic Gothess is simply spectacular! Serve it at a gothic wedding perhaps?

10. Terrifying tea cakes anyone? Get the recipe at Supper in the Suburbs.
