Halloween Party Food for the kids

Organizing a Halloween party for a bunch of hard to impress children these days may see like a particularly daunting task. When you are dealing with the Twilight generation who are used to dramatic effects and stunning graphics this doesn’t make the job easy. However at least the with current trend for undead creatures such as vampires, witches and wizards Halloween parties are now more popular than ever.

So if you are the worried host of a children’s Halloween party this year or maybe you just want to some delectable treats to send your children and maybe a few of their friends off for a successful evening of trick or treating then look no further. Here is a selection of simple recipes to help you organize your own Halloween feast.

JACK-O-LANTERN PIZZAS

The Jack-O-Lantern is now a popular Halloween character in America but did you know that he actually originated in Ireland? Originally Jack-O-Lantern carried a candle in a hollowed out turnip on Halloween in Ireland. Then when the Irish started immigrating to America turnips were very hard to come by so then they started using pumpkins instead.

Ingredients:

  • Muffin halves
  • Tomato passata or Tomato puree
  • Grated Cheddar cheese
  • Sliced Black Olives


Method:

  1. Spread your choice of sauce on the halved Muffins.
  2. Sprinkle with grated cheese. You can then create a jack-o-lantern face with olives.
  3. Place the mini-pizzas on a baking sheet and cook in the oven until the cheese is melted.

Skeleton Bone Sandwiches

Method:

  1. These are simple to make and will also ensure that at least the kids will have something wholesome to eat on Halloween.
  2. If you can get one use a bone shaped cookie cutter or even a bone shaped stencil would also work.
  3. Then just cut your bread and sandwich fillings e.g. you could use cheese bones, ham bones or tuna bone sandwiches etc.
  4. Serve piled high on a plate.

Scary Monster Mash

Ingredients:

  • 8oz Cream Cheese or 8oz Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 1/2 Cup Chopped Green Pepper
  • 1/4 Cup Chopped Onions
  • 4 Scallions

Method:

  1. Grab a 9 inch cake tin and line it with tinfoil.
  2. Combine all the ingredients, except the scallions which will be used to decorate, and press the mixture evenly into the tin.
  3. Cover and leave in the fridge for 1-2 hours.
  4. Slice strips off the scallions and then place them in a bowl of cold water to help them curl.
  5. When ready invert the tin onto a serving platter and garnish with the scallion curls.

As Halloween it is all about effect and the more spiders or worms you can strategically place around the edge of the plate or on the table the better your Halloween feast will look. Just think scary food that tastes great and then enjoy.
