Ghoulishly good Halloween treats

 
Halloween is a great excuse to invite some friends over to host your own Halloween party.

Aside from spooky stories and creepy costumes, you'll need some devilishly tasty treats.

Eyeball cookies
 

 

 

 

 

   

 

 
What you'll need:
  • 1 packet of Oreo biscuits
  • Blue or green edible writing gel
  • Red edible writing icing
  • Dried blueberries, raisins or other small, round, dark fruit.
     

 

How to make eyeball cookies:

 

Eyeball Cookies
 

  1. Hold one side of the Oreo biscuit in each hand and gently twist to separate them.
  2. Set aside the biscuit with no icing on it.
  3. Use the writing gel to make a small blue or green circle on the biscuit with the white icing on it.
  4. Place a dried blueberry (or other fruit) in the centre of the coloured gel.
  5. Next, use the edible red writing icing to draw lines coming from the blue or green gel.

Mmmmmm... eyeballs...
 


 

Monster mouth bites

 

Monster Mouth Bites 

     

What you'll need:

  • Green apples
    Ask an adult to cut these into quarters (avoiding the core) and with a wedge carved out of the green side of each quarter.
  • Strawberries
    Ask an adult to thinly slice the strawberries, length ways.
  • Peanut butter
  • Sunflower seeds
  • White marshmallows (small and/or large) cut in half
  • Black edible writing icing
     
   

How to make monster mouths

  1. Spread peanut butter inside the missing wedge of each apple quarter – this will be the inside of your monster's mouth.
  2. To make your monster's teeth, gently push sunflower seeds into the apple flesh inside your monster's mouth (where you spread the peanut butter).
  3. Place your strawberry tongue on top of the peanut butter, so that it is sticking out of your monster's mouth.
  4. To make the eyes, use the writing icing to draw a small black circle in the middle of one or two marshmallows. Add a little more icing to the back of the marshmallow and stick them to the top part of your monster's mouth. 
     


Witches hat biscuits
 

Witches hat biscuits

 
   

What you'll need:

  • Toffee Pop biscuits (or you can use the leftover Oreo biscuits from the Eyeball Cookies)
  • Hershey's Kisses
  • Yellow or orange edible writing icing
  • Mini marshmallows (or similar lollies) cut into small pieces
     
   

How to make your witches hats

  1. Squeeze a circle of writing icing around the bottom of a Hershey's Kiss.
  2. Gently place the iced bottom of Hershey's Kiss in the very middle of the top of a Toffee Pop.
  3. Using the writing icing, squeeze a yellow or orange circle around where the Hershey's Kiss touches the Toffee Pop.
  4. Put one of the mini marshmallow slices on one side of the Hershey's Kiss (where it connects with the Toffee Pop), to create a buckle on the Witches Hat.

Mini pumpkins
 

Mini Pumpkins

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

     

What you'll need:

  • Mandarins
  • Toothpicks
  • Green snake lollies (cut in half) or any other similar lolly.
    For a healthy option, try using sliced celery sticks.
     

How to make your mini
pumpkins:

 
  1. Peel your mandarins, removing as much white pith as possible.
  2. Use a toothpick to emphasise the lines where each mandarin segment connects – this makes it look more like a pumpkin.
  3. Gently push a green snake lolly into the centre of the mandarin so that a little bit is sticking out of the top.
  4. Surprise your friends with your sweet “pumpkin” treats!
