I can’t believe that we’re already part way through autumn with Halloween only a few days away! If, like me, you prefer to stay and celebrate at home, then here are a few ideas for some super cute Halloween snacks to go along with your movie marathon!
While most of these recipes are sweet, I definitely recommend starting with a savoury snack and sausage rolls are usually my go to. That’s why I had to show you these cute puff pastry hot dog mummies from Appetizer Addiction. I would definitely use mini chipolatas instead of hot dogs, but these are so fun.
Kawaii Sweet World makes the cutest themed sweets and her Halloween ones are no different. These pumpkin cups are very versatile in terms of decoration and I love the jack o’lantern faces!
Who would’ve thought that Oreos would make such cute creatures? These Oreo bat treats from One Sweet Appetite are simple and pretty quick to make too.
Preppy Kitchen turns things up a notch to make these incredibly lifelike mini pumpkin cakes. While the bake looks straightforward, the decoration might take a bit of practice. These would make the perfect dessert if you’re sharing your treats with the rest of your family.
If you just want a hot chocolate to go with your movie, then why not make these little ghost-mallows by Erin Jeanne McDowell to pop on top. You could even pipe on a kawaii smiley face to make them less spooky! Take a look at her Instagram for a video of these, including piping tips. Vegans – use your favourite vegan marshmallow recipe and then use this for the design!
Maybe the easiest snack on this list is the Halloween walnuts from Culinary Hill. Another versatile one too, with mummies, pumpkins, monsters and spiders as your design options.
Speaking of mummies, I love these macarons from Nerdy Mamma. While macarons are a trickier recipe, these are so cute and gluten free too (she even has dairy free alternative ingredients included)!
If you’ve got a few people to share your treats with, then I think these haunted brownies from Country Living would be a great option. Just like the marshmallows above, you can give these ghosts kawaii faces to make them a little less spooky and much more adorable!
