Halloween Recipes for Kids: Cookie Spiders
- Oreo Cookies
- Black or red liquorice
- Edible eyes
This recipe is the fastest way to make great Halloween cookies.
Cut the licorice into small pieces to make the legs of the spiders.
He opens the biscuit and places -together with the cream- three liquorice legs on each side.
Put the top of the cookie back on and place two edible eyes.
In case you don’t have edible eyes, it’s okay! We have a solution for you.
With a spreader, take some of the cream that fills the cookies.
Make little balls with the cream and stick them on the top of the cookie. Cut a small piece of licorice and place it in each cream eye.
When serving, try to place the cookies as if they were moving around your table.
Halloween Dishes: Cheese Eyes
- Mini Babybel type cheeses
- Pitted black olives
- Red food coloring
With the help of a fine bristle brush and the red dye, paint small lines on the cheeses.
Even the idea that each cheese will be an eye, so the lines should look like the typical irritated eye.
Cut the olives into small rounds.
Each round must be placed on the mini cheeses.
Add a few drops of ketchup to the centre of each olive round. You’ll get a more haunting red eye.
Serve this Halloween dish for children, in a group, on a black tray to make them stand out.
- 75 g milk chocolate bar
- 300 g of Oreo cookies
- 100 g thick cream
- Black or pink licorice
To prepare this Halloween dish, open all the cookies and remove the filling. Set aside as we will use it during the final decoration.
Crush the cookies. Divide the result in three equal portions. One of the portions, you will reserve it for decoration.
In the microwave, melt the chocolate for a few seconds. When it is completely melted, add the thick cream.
Mix both ingredients well. We added the crushed cookies intended for the preparation of our Halloween mice.
In the end, you’ll get a thick dough that you can mold with your hands.
Refrigerate the mixture for at least one hour.
Take the preparation out of the fridge and make small balls. Shape each one into a mouse body.
Pass the chocolate bodies through the cookie crumbs we had reserved. That will give it a texture similar to the fur of mice.
Now, with the cream of the filling that the cookies had, we will make the eyes and ears of the mice.
Cut the liquorice into small pieces to make the tail of the mice.
When you finish decorating, put the mice in the fridge. Two hours will be enough for the preparation to harden and stay up for the whole party.
Anyway, don’t worry, the little ones – knowing they’re chocolate mice – will probably eat them in seconds.
Vampire Claws – Halloween Recipes for Scary Kids
- Sliced bread
- Ham of your preference
- Olive oil
This is one of the scariest dishes on this list of Halloween recipes for kids, but it will also be one of the most devoured.
It removes the edges of the bread slices, so it will be easier to mold to our taste.
Place the individual slices on the table. Flatten them with the help of a rolling pin. They should be completely smooth.
Add a few drops of olive oil and salt to each slice of bread.
Cut the slices of the selected ham into small squares. Add them to the bread.
Roll up each slice of bread to form a vampire finger.
Make tomato triangles with a sharp knife. They will be the nails of each finger, so insert it in the tip of each bread.
If you want to form a hand, take another slice of bread, remove the edges, crush it with the rolling pin and shape it into the shape of the palm of your hand.
You could make several hands and place them in different areas of the table. You could also just do the vampire fingers.
Pizza dough snakes
- Pizza dough
- Dried tomatoes
- Black olives
- Olive oil
- Garlic powder
Take several wooden skewers and smear them with enough olive oil.
Stretch the dough and divide it into small strips about two centimeters thick.
Roll up the dough on the skewer. Remember that we are making a snake, so one end from being pointed and the other flat.
On the flat end, which will be the head of the animal, we put a piece of dried tomato – like the tongue of the snake – and two tiny pieces of olives in the shape of eyes.
Spray oil on a baking tray. Arrange the snakes on the tray. Spread sesame seeds, poppy, garlic powder and a little salt over the body of the snakes.
Bake the dough for 10 to 12 minutes. Do not remove the skewers while the dough is hot. Wait for them to cool down a bit and remove them very carefully.
You can serve them alone or as an accompaniment to a special sauce.
Bleeding eyes cocktail
- 1/4 k of frozen raspberries
- Chocolate drops
In the blender, add the juice of one lemon, along with the raspberries and water.
Blend the ingredients. The consistency should be between liquid and thick, that is, we do not want a paste, nor a juice.
Strain the preparation so that you can remove the seeds from the raspberries.
Divide the juice into several wide-mouth glasses. Keep in the fridge.
With a Parisian spoon or ball sac, form several melon balls.
Put a drop of chocolate on each melon ball. Once this step has been completed, we reserve the melon in the cold.
At the moment of serving, introduce two balls of melon in the raspberry juice. It will look like two eyes swimming in blood.
It’s a children’s Halloween dish that’s as scary as it is tasty.
Halloween Dishes: Meringue Bones
- Egg whites
This is one of the Halloween recipes for children that will require greater skill.
When you start the recipe, turn the oven on to 250˚ C.
In a bowl, preferably a metal one, add the whites of 3 eggs and 150 g of white sugar.
Place the bowl in a bain-marie. Stir the mixture as it is blended with the sugar.
Use a thermometer in the mixture. Make sure it does not reach 60˚ C or the eggs will be cooked.
Before it reaches that temperature, the sugar must have melted.
Using a stick beater, mix the yolks and sugar until you get a shiny mixture, with no lumps and that makes permanent peaks.
We put the resulting mixture into a pastry bag with a medium nozzle.
Model the meringue bones. Little by little you will get the desired shape, you must be patient.
Finished the modeling. Turn off the oven and put the meringue bones in it.
They must remain in the oven for 8 hours with the door closed, so that it does not lose its heat.
When the time is up, open the oven and check the state of cooking of the bones.
If you see that any of the pits are still moist, turn on the oven to 100˚ C and leave the meringue pits for another hour. That will be enough to cook them perfectly.
- Red or green apple, depending on your preference
- Slivered almonds
- Strawberry or red fruit jam
We washed and dried the fruit very well.
We cut the apple in half and remove the centre, including the seeds.
We split each half of the apple into six pieces.
Take two pieces and join them with the red marmalade of your choice.
Embed some sliced almonds so that they look like the crooked teeth of a very scary mouth.
The apple, like other fruits, begins to oxidize after being cut.
This is a natural process that you will use to your advantage, since the mouths will be more terrifying because they have a dark part.
