Yummy Halloween Snacks To Make At Home

Share it!

You’ve got the costume crafted, the decorations are done and dusted…now it’s time for the eerie Halloween snacks that will give you the spooks. As gruesome as these food inspiration ideas may sound, they’re all edible – and rather yummy!

These will definitely go down a treat with your little devils and you may even trick a few adults into thinking they’re real too. These snacks are simple and are perfect if the youngsters want to get stuck in with the cooking.

1. Eyeball and Finger Jelly

You will need:

  • Pack of jelly
  • Green grapes
  • Dark jelly beans
  • Tinned lychees
  • Marzipan

We warned you: these snack ideas aren’t for the faint-hearted. Start by prepping a bowl of jelly as you normally would. Next, place a jelly bean in the center of the grape, where the stalk would have been. Now slide this into the whole lychee, and place carefully in the jelly. For the marzipan, roll into sausage-sized logs and then using a knife and some pressure, create two lines as finger creases. Repeat both jelly and marzipan items as per the size of the bowl. Allow the jelly to set and prepare to be freaked out by this devilish concoction.

2. Sizzly Pastry Snake Snacks

  • Puff pastry
  • Cheese
  • Poppy seeds (or sesame seeds)
  • Egg
  • Peppercorns

These savory snacks are actually a stroke of genius that will hopefully excite the children while not repulsing the adults. Unroll the pastry onto a lightly floured surface, and cover one half lightly with cheese. (You can also add bacon, tomatoes, peppers, or other vegetarian or vegan items.) Fold the pastry in half so the cheese is secure, and cut into thin 1cm strips. Fold the ends and then twist them into snake-like positions. Place the snakes on a baking sheet, glaze with an egg, and sprinkle over more cheese and poppy seeds. Use two peppercorns for eyes. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes on high until the snakes are golden brown, crisp, and ready to bite.

3. Frozen Banana Ghosts

  • Bar of white chocolate
  • Ripe bananas
  • Desiccated coconut
  • Chocolate chips

As tasty as they are easy, these banana snacks can be whipped up in a second. Start by melting the chocolate in a pan or the microwave. Peel and cut the bananas in half longways like a banana split. Place them on a lined and greased baking tray, and slide a lolly stick into the centre of each. Drizzle the melted chocolate over, and then the desiccated coconut. Use the chocolate drops for eyes, a mouth, or buttons down the chest. Freeze for four hours and up to a week. Careful of the brain freeze!

4. Chocolate Spiders

  • Oreos
  • Bar of milk chocolate
  • Licorice
  • White and black icing pen

This fuss-free snack recipe is a winner. Melt the chocolate in a pan or a microwavable bowl, and once it’s cooled, dunk the oreas in the mixture until they’re covered. Allow these to cool, and in the meantime, cut the licorice sticks into 2cm for the legs. Place these under the oreos, with four on each side like a spooky spider. Make eyes out of the icing and voila – a web of yummy chocolate to indulge in.

5. Apple Frog Snacks

  • Green apples
  • Strawberries
  • Sunflower seeds
  • White and black icing pen

Healthy and amazingly cool – yes, really. Cut the apples into quarters, removing the core. Then cut the outer middle of each apple segment to create a mouth. For the tongue, cut a trawberry in half and place it in the mouse – use some butter or peanut butter to make it stick. Then add some froggy eyes with the icing pen and serve up to hungry mouths.

We hope you enjoyed these recipes! Send us your spooky snack pictures and share the festive scare. Happy Halloween!
