Haunted Halloween Platter

All of the recipes in this platter are easy to make and can be done the day before a party (if you’re organised). I love making them with my little ones as they can learn about lots of different cooking techniques like melting, mixing & freezing and they always love trying to stick the candy eyes on.

Let’s get spooooooky…

Spooky Spiders & Mud Monsters

These are great to make the day before the party & leave in the fridge overnight…

  1. Mix together your melted chocolate & crushed cereal
  2. Shape your creatures on a tin foil lined baking tray
  3. Attach the spider legs (if you’re struggling a drop of honey helps them stick)
  4. Add your eyes and put in the fridge for at least 4 hours
  5. Yum!

Boo-nana & White Chocolate Ghosts

I love these because you can get messy with your little ones when you make them & they also make the perfect snack for those dreaded teething pains…

  1. Dip a banana in the melted white chocolate
  2. Roll in the crushed almonds
  3. Place on a tin foil lined baking tray (that will fit in your freezer)
  4. Repeat for all the bananas
  5. Add your eyes & transfer to the freezer for at least 4 hours
  6. Enjoy!

Mummified Stuffed Peppers

Golden, cheesy pockets of goodness…

  1. Preheat your oven to 200C
  2. Deseed & halve your peppers
  3. Mix your cheese & cream cheese together to make the filling
  4. Fill each pepper with 1-2 tbsp of the cheese mixture
  5. Cut your pastry into strips (about 0.5cm in width)
  6. Wrap the peppers in 2 strips each to make your mummies
  7. Bake in the oven for 15-20 mins until golden brown
  8. While you’re waiting cut your olives into eye shapes
  9. When your mummies are done you can use a bit of extra cream cheese to attach the olive eyes onto the pastry
  10. Delicious!

Granny Smith Gnashers

These are so easy to make & an absolute winner with the kids (and you’re even tricking them into eating fruit – what a treat!)

  1. Cut your apples into slices making sure to remove any of the core from the edges
  2. Cover one apple slice with peanut butter
  3. Add your marshmallow teeth
  4. Smother the another slice with peanut butter & place on top of the marshmallows
  5. Use a bit of peanut butter to add the eyes on the top apple slice
  6. Rinse & repeat with as many apple slices as you want!
  7. Chomp away!
