Nutty Toffee Apples
If you’re conscious of the kids getting their five-a-day, then toffee apples make the perfect traditional Halloween food. Admittedly when smothered in toffee they don’t make the healthiest snack, but the toffee doesn’t counteract the fact that apples are good for you! Push wooden sticks into apples and dip each apple into a pan containing a mixture of boiled sugar, water, butter, syrup and chopped nuts. Leave them to harden on a baking tray before serving up to your guests.
Everybody loves cheesecake, and this recipe is a great way to make sure hollowed-out pumpkin purée doesn’t go to waste. With a cinnamon and nutmeg dusted cream and yoghurt topping, this is the perfect dessert for those who don’t like their treats to be too sweet.
Toffee Apple Muffins
Toffee apples are everywhere at this time of year, so as well as making your own, why not incorporate the flavour into muffins for your Halloween party? The recipe is super easy, meaning the kids can get involved too. With chunks of apple and toffee added to the mixture, these can be served hot or cold. Either way, they’re sure to go down a treat.
Mozzarella and Olive Eyeballs
If you’re after something that’s a little more gory, try creating mini mozzarella eyeballs. Buy mini mozzarella balls from the store and roll them in a mixture of oil, mixed herbs, garlic and dried chilli. For the iris, cut the top off a green olive and put to one side. For the pupil, take a black olive and pierce it with a straw to get a small, round cut-out piece. Pierce the green olive you’ve just cut with the same straw and place the black olive piece in the hole to create the pupil. Place your iris and pupil on top of the mozzarella ball and you’ll have snacks that are sure to scare your guests.
