Halloween is quickly approaching. It’s taken me a bit to get into celebrating it, but having a monster-loving boy, who already decided last month what his Halloween costume would be, has helped.
There are so many amazingly creative food ideas out there to make the most of the spooky season, but if you have monster lovers at home there’s no reason why you can’t make some of these fun creations all year round.
A healthy snack to balance those ‘trick or treat’ sweeties, Ciara at My Fussy Eater has made her Spooky Spiders from bite-sized rice cakes, blackberries and grapes.
Another healthy Halloween treat are these Monster Mouths from Texanerin Baking. I love the oozing dripping strawberry jam blood!
Still keeping it healthy, Cooking With Curls‘ Toxic Waste Mac and Cheese should be a big hit with any Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fans while giving them a good dose of spinach and cauliflower (but they don’t need to know that!).
How cute are these cupcake Jack-O-Lanterns from Lisa at The Bearfoot Baker?
Tieghan from Half Baked Harvest created these scrumptious and cute Hocus Pocus Spellbook Brownies.
Yummy Crumble’s Monster Strawberry Cupcakes remind me of Audrey II as a baby plant from A Little Shop of Horrors, cute but also rather scary.
These cupcakes from Better Homes and Gardens are at the top of my list for my upcoming school bake sale because they scream “Halloween!” while taking very little effort to make.
Halloween food doesn’t have to only be for kids. I love this sea monster (or is it a Kraken?!) coming out of the green depths that’s actually a tequila and green Bloody Mary shot created by Barman’s Journal.
Who knew a coconut panna cotta, a slice of kiwi, a raisin and some raspberry coulis could be so creepy! Renee at Kitchen Table Scraps has transformed an ordinary dessert into a spooky spectacle.
Which one is your favourite?
