Halloween celebrations will feel quite different this year with all the Covid-19 restrictions in place, Trick or treating might be off the menu but I've got some great tips for creating some fun food treats which are sure to put a smile on everyone's face.
You will need: Breadsticks
Melted milk chocolate
Breadsticks are a cupboard staple in my house and these couldn't be simpler to make. Dip one end of the breadstick into a pot of melted chocolate and then cover with sprinkles of your choice. Place them on a baking sheet and pop into the fridge to harden. We love the halloween sprinkles at Sainsbury's or Tesco!
Mini Monster Cupcakes
You will need: Mini cupcakes
These were great to make with my little ones. You will need a batch of cupcakes and buttercream. We chose to colour the buttercream with green food gel but you can choose whichever colour you prefer. I placed the buttercream in a piping bag with a grass nozzle but you can use a spoon or fork as this is meant to be monster hair! Place a sugar eye or two on top to finish your monster.
White Chocolate Banana Ghosts
What you will need: Banana's
Melted white chocolate
Dark chocolate chips
Melt the white chocolate. Cut the bananas in half and insert a skewer into each half of banana, Dip the banana's into the melted chocolate and place them on a tray. Freeze for at least 2 hours. Remove from the freezer and using a hot spoon, slightly melt the back of the chocolate chip and stick to the white chocolate covered banana for the eyes and mouth. Return to the freezer until ready to eat. Serve cold from the freezer.
