Halloween Recipes

Halloween is the perfect time to get creative! There are hundreds of recipes you can experiment with and adapt to create a spooky style dinner table and fun evening with your kids.

We have picked our top 3 fun and easy recipes to make with your kids in the lead up to Halloween.

 

Mummified Sausages

Ingredients:

- Sausages of your choice (works best with chipolatas or frankfurters)

- 8oz Plain flour

- Salt

- 3.5oz Butter

- Mayonnaise


Method:

1. Cook your sausages of choice so that they are almost fully cooked (the thinner and smaller the more effective they are)

2. Whilst the sausages are cooking you can make the pastry. Firstly, rub the flour and butter together until it resembles breadcrumbs

3. Stir in a pinch of salt and then mix in 2-3 tbsp of water to create a dough texture

4. Knead the dough with your hands on a floured surface and then roll out flat

5. Cut the dough into thin strips (smaller than the width of your finger)

6. Once your sausages are almost cooked take them out of the oven to cool down slightly

7. Once cool enough to touch, wrap the dough strips around them to create the ‘mummified sausages’ look, leaving a gap where the ‘head of the mummy’ would be

8. Put the sausages back in the oven to finish cooking for approximately 15-20 minutes until the pastry is a golden brown

9. Once they are cooked and golden brown, take the sausages out and put them on a plate

10. To finish, put two small dots of mayonnaise in the gap at the top to create the eyes

 

Banana Ghosts

Ingredients:

- Bananas

- White Chocolate

- Lolly sticks

- Chocolate chips


Method:

1. Peel your bananas, cut them in half and push a lolly stick in the middle of each piece

2. Break into pieces, then put your white chocolate in the microwave to melt

3.Dip each banana into the white chocolate covering it in a layer of white chocolate

4. With your chocolate chips, make a face on the banana

5. These are then ready to eat warm OR for something a little different you could also put the banana ghosts onto a tray and place them in the freezer for at least 4 hours to make banana ice lollies!

 

 

Witches Fingers

Ingredients:

- 6oz plain flour

- 4oz Butter

- 2oz Caster Sugar

- Red food colouring

- Almonds (shaped like finger nails)


Method:

1. Mix the butter and the sugar together.

2. Stir in the flour to make a paste (if the paste is soft, chill it in the fridge for about half an hour)

3. Cover your work surface in flour and gently roll out the paste until sufficiently thick (this will rise in the oven)

4. Cut into finger shaped strips and place on a baking tray

5. Bake in the oven for approximately 10-20 minutes until the shortbread is slightly golden at 180 degrees

6. Once cool enough to touch, take individual almonds and press one gently onto the end of each finger

7. Apply the red food colouring by pouring a tiny amount onto the base of the almond (not the far edge) and watch the colour spread under and over the almond. Decorate the fingers with red food colouring for a spooky effect.
