Yesterday we shared some spooky halloween lunches we created as we prepared to celebrate Halloween. Today we are sharing some spooky halloween treats that are easy and fun to make with your toddlers or even older children.
Clara’s mum discovered these mutant spiders online and as they only required 3 ingredients we thought we’d give them a go with M. We melted some dark and milk chocolate together over a saucepan, then poured the melted chocolate into a bowl whilst M poured/threw some rice crispies into a bowl. We then spooned small piles onto some grease proof paper and placed smarties on as eyes. Clara then cut up some fizzy strawberry laces and added them as legs. The reason they are mutant spiders is because we ran out of legs.
The mutant spiders were a huge success with the whole family and only lasted about 8 hours before they’d all been devoured. You could make little rice crispie ghosts by using white chocolate and M &M’s or add some food colouring to make Frankenstein faces.
Next spooky halloween treat we created was a little swamp. I used one of M’s frubes and squeezed it into a little bowl and added some Fruit Wriggles by Kiddylicious as worms. We decorated the swamp with a spiders web from Eats Amazing.(Set of 8, £2.95). It’s such a simple idea to do and only took a minute to throw together. You could even get your children to make their own swamps.
Our final spooky halloween treat was inspired by a discussion we had one twitter about creating fun little puddings. I remembered we had some edible cupcake cases left over from a Degustabox and added some chocolate rice pudding, crumbled over some chocolate biscuit and used more Fruit Wriggles as worms to create a monster graveyard. The graveyard wasn’t complete until we added a spooky mummy from the Eats Amazing Halloween cupcake rings (set of 6, £2.50).
The rice pudding soaks through the edible cases really quickly, so it’s a pudding to be eaten straight away. Or you could use mini ramekins. We had so much fun putting together different spooky creations. I think we’ll be coming up with a few more in the next couple of days.
