Halloween Food Ideas

We are all busy, I know and half term can be a struggle especially when the week is coming to an end. This year Halloween falls on the last weekend of half term which is about the time I am looking for something fun to do with the kids.

I love Halloween, not only the dressing up but the food. I don’t now why but I always love the look of Halloween food for kids. I spend the weeks running up to Halloween collecting photographs of food from Pinterest and other blogs.

Below I have put together six simple foods to try this year. The plan is to make them all and deliver an amazing Halloween tea but feel free to just pick your favourites, as long as you (and the kids) have fun, that’s all that matters.


Ghosts and Pumpkins

Peel and cut the bananas, take 3 small chocolate drops and attach to the bananas as eyes and a mouth using icing or Nutella. Peel your tangerines, slice some celery and place in the top of the tangerine as a pumpkin stalk.


Eye Balls

Scoop some balls of  vanilla ice cream, drizzle with red  ice cream sauce, add a single smartie on top and pipe a small black icing dot on the smartie.

Witches Fingers

Take some thin sliced white bread, remove the crusts and cut into finger sized strips. Use a knife to create knucle lines (see above). Take a whole almond and place on the end as a nail, smear strawberry jam over the other end of the finger to look like blood.


Pastry Snakes

Serve these pastry snakes at a Halloween party or as a spooky snack for kids. Keep the flavours interesting by coating your snakes with a variety of seeds
