As it’s getting closer to Halloween, a lot of us are starting to think about how we’re going to celebrate it. Some stay in with a scary – or not so scary – film. Other’s take their children out to trick or treat. Some people might want to throw a Halloween themed party and are on the hunt for some spooky party food. A lot of shops are selling more and more Halloween themed party food, such as M&S and Asda, which all look delicious. However sometimes half the fun of it all is creating some of the food yourselves! It can be a great activity for the kids to join in, and it shows you’ve put in that extra little bit of effort.
I’ve put together a little spread of fun things you can make for a Halloween party! Some taken from the internet, some original ideas. Enjoy!
These are so simple to make and are bound to be a crowd pleaser. All I used was a Betty Crocker devils food cake mix – my all time favourite – made up using the instructions on the box. I put the mixture into Halloween cupcake cases, cooked them, and then added chocolate orange icing and a spooky decoration!
Slimy jelly with spooky sweets
Green jelly with Halloween themed sweets floating in it….What more is there to say really? Is it snot? Is it a swamp? Who knows!
These are made from oats, dates, peanut butter and chocolate. Sounds good, right? Blend all the ingredients together in a food processor, mould the mixture into finger shaped pieces and place on a baking tray. Pop a toasted almond flake onto the end to look like a fingernail, and chill in the fridge for 1 hour. A sweet treat without the guilt…and it’s vegan!

Creepy crawly pizza
A simple pizza with spider toppings! I used a pre-made base for ease, although you can make your own if you’ like. Cover the base with the usual sauce and cheese, and then go to town on the toppings! You can be as creative as you like. I just used olives and sliced them to look like spiders, but I’ve seen so many amazing designs! Use any toppings you like and create lots of different spooky patterns.
And there you have it! A few Halloween party food ideas that are perfect to make with the kids.
If you end up making any of these, be sure to tag me on instagram so I can see!
Until next time.
