With Halloween fast approaching, it’s time to turn up the ghoulishness and get ready for the most frightful time of the year. Pumpkins and scary decorations at the ready, add a hint of sweet to your Halloween with these festively spooky treats to make in your kitchen.
Perhaps one of the easiest, but most effective of Halloween treats, Meringue Ghosts are a tasty addition to any spooky party. Simply whip up some egg whites, sugar and cream of tartar, pipe into frightening ghost shapes, pop on some candy eyes and bake! If you don’t have any candy eyes, chocolate chips or chocolate sauce works just as well. Whether you’re a huge horror fan or more of a cute-yet-ghoulish type, these Meringue Ghosts are perfect for you this Halloween.
A spooky twist on a classic treat, gingerbread Bat Cookies are perfect for a fiendish feast. They also couldn’t be simpler! Mix butter, brown sugar, syrup, egg and flour, with cinnamon and ginger, to create your delicious gingerbread base.
Then add melted dark chocolate or dark icing to get creative with your bat decoration. You can also mix and match your decorations and shapes – think cobwebs, skeletons, pumpkins, black cats and more! You’ll have the spookiest bats around.
Perhaps the creepiest of the Halloween treats, scare your friends and family with these Spider Cupcakes. Delightfully spooky but also delicious, these creepy-crawly cakes are easy and effective. To begin, bake a simple chocolate cupcake, and top it with chocolate buttercream. For the creepy effect, add chocolate chips or sprinkles, candy eyes or mini marshmallows, and use liquorice laces to imitate the hairy little legs.
Looking for treats that you can make with your children? This ghostly ‘ ScareBerries’ take 5 minutes but are definitely boo-rific.

Dip the strawberries in white chocolate, pipe some small chocolate dots for eyes and a mouth and you’re ready to serve.
