Easy Halloween snack ideas to make with your kids

Halloween is around the corner and, as usual, spooky snacks are the order of the day. If you have small kids at home, try making these eerie edible treats with them to get into the Halloween spirit.

Hungry apple monsters

You will need:

  • An apple
  • Peanut butter
  • Sliced almonds or sunflower seeds

Preparation:

– Slice the apple into quarters, taking care to slice around the core of the fruit.

– To create the mouth, carve a slice out of one of the four corners, but don’t cut it all the way through.

– Remove the slice and spread peanut butter on the bottom side of the exposed apple, then press the almonds or sunflower seeds into the top part of the apple to make them look like teeth.

Witch fingers

You will need:

  • ¾ cup confectioners’ sugar
  • ¾ cup softened butter
  • Green food colouring
  • One egg
  • Two teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Two-and-a-half cups of all-purpose flour
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • One cup baking chocolate chips
  • ¼ cup of almond slices

Preparation:

– Mix together the confectioners’ sugar, butter and food colouring in a large bowl using an electric mixer on medium speed. Add the egg and vanilla and mix together. Add the flour and salt and mix together until a smooth dough forms.

– Divide the dough into 24 pieces, then roll each piece into a finger shape, making a slight depression in the dough where the “fingernail” will be placed.

– Use a knife to make indentations where the “knuckles” will be.

–Chill the dough for two to three hours until firm.

– Preheat the oven to 160°C. Bake cookies for between 15 and 20 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown.  

– Melt baking chocolate chips according to instructions, then use a small amount of the melted mixture to attach an almond slice to each cookie where the fingernail would be.

– Dip the other end of each cookie finger into the chocolate, and chill until it is set.
