The spooky season is upon us and what better way to celebrate that with treats! If you are planning a party for your kids this Halloween, and stuck on creative party food, keep reading below.
Hot dog Mummies
What you will need for this savoury treat are small Frankfurt sausages and a couple sheets of puff pastry. Begin by boiling the sausages. While they are cooking, preheat the oven to 150 degrees Celsius and begin cutting the puff pastry in long strips about 1cm in width.
When the sausages have boiled, pour water out and allow them to cool to a lukewarm temperature. Wrap two strips of pastry around the sausage, leaving a small slit where the "Mummys" eyes should go. Pinch the ends and glaze with egg yolk before placing them in the oven. Bake until the pastry has turned a light, golden brown. Use tomato sauce or mustard to place two small dots for the eyes.
Halloween cookies are a fun and delicious Halloween party treat that the kids will love! The great thing about this party food is that you can make them using any one of your favourite cookie recipes. As long as you have Halloween cookie cutters, coloured icing and an array of toppings, you can let your imagination run wild! One better yet would be setting up a cookie decorating station, and allowing the kids to decorate the cookies as a party activity.
'Dirt' Chocolate crackles with sour worms
Chocolate crackles but not as you know it! Make your favourite chocolate crackle recipe and mix sour worms in the mixture before you spoon it into cupcake holders. Before refrigerating, crush up Oreos and sprinkle on top. Lastly, place another sour worm on the top. Sit back and watch the kids squirm as they enjoy their treat!
