Halloween Party Food Ideas

We have been getting ready for Halloween with some tasty and gruesome party food ideas, take a look below at some of our favourites. What I really like about this time of year is that both my girls love to help to create some spooky Halloween recipes with me and the fun of dressing up the table for a party and helping me to create some fun and scary photo’s with the recipes has really brought us together. All these recipes are linked with the full instructions on the heading of each one, just click through for all the details. 

Jack Skellington cupcakes

These fun cupcakes are great to make with the kids and perfect if the school or one of the kids clubs are holding a cake sale as they sell really well! Easy to make and they look very spooky and perfect for Halloween.
