A few more little cookery tips for your Halloween Table.

Wizard Casting
SpellsMarshmallow Ghosts and Ghouls

marshmallow ghosts and ghouls

These are great fun to make, and delicious to eat! They make a good activity for a Halloween party too - just provide a bowl or two of melted chocolate and the necessary decorations and let the kids loose on their own treats. Read online or watch the video below...

Ingredients: 

Marsh
mallows
White chocolate chips or white chocolate
Silver ball cake decorations or similar
Writing icing
Strawberry laces (optional)

Directions: 

Melt the white chocolate or white chocolate chips in a glass bowl in the microwave, or over a saucepan of simmering water. This takes a minute or two.

While you are waiting, start making your ghosts. Thread a couple of white marshmallows onto a lollipop (popsicle) stick for each one. Now dip the ghosts into the melted chocolate and swirl them around to cover the top of the ghosts' "heads". Bring them out and lay them flat on a paper plate for the chocolate to harden, pushing a couple of silver balls on for eyes before it does.

Use a tube of writing icing to draw on a mouth and any other features you would like. Keep in the fridge until you need them.

To make the ghouls, use either white or colored marshmallows. Thread one on per stick. Add some green food coloring to the chocolate and then swirl the marshmallows in it as before, this time covering as much of the surface as possible. Use silver balls for eyes, but this time add some other decoration too: we used strawberry candy strands for hair and would have added chocolate drops for ears if we hadn't eaten them all already! Leave to harden as before.




TWO JELLY DISHES FOR YOUR HALLOWEEN TABLE

SPIDERS AND BATS, WITCHES AND WARLOCKSSpider Jelly

Spider jelly

These aren't really a recipe as such - just a quick idea for presenting your jelly/jello for Halloween. As you can see from the photo it looks incredibly effective and gruesome, and the kids we tried it on loved it!

Make up your jelly as usual and pour into individual containers (ours are inexpensive plastic goblets from the supermarket, and we think they look great). When the jelly is set, just drop a plastic spider (make sure you wash them well first) onto the top of the glass and scatter a few around the table too. Now east them if you dare!

NB: watch young children carefully - you don't want them to actually eat the spiders!

Pumpkins

ORANGE JELLY PUMKINS

Orange jelly pumpkins - a Halloween craft you
can eat!

You will need:

Oranges
Jelly (jello) - we used blackcurrant
A sharp knife (and an adult)

Instructions:

Cut off the top of the oranges, and scoop the middle.

*DON'T MAKE THE HOLES FOR THE EYES etc.UNTIL jelly has set.

Mix up your jelly mix following the instructions on the packet.

Pour carefully into the orange shells.

Leave in the fridge to set.

*Using a sharp knife, carefully cut out a face. Yum!
