Three Easy Halloween Party Food Hacks

Witch Hat Crispy Cakes 

Chocolate Witch Hat Crispy Cakes are a great non bake treat to make with your little monsters. The crispy cereal is mixed with melted marshmallow Flumps and Black Jack chews, to give them an eerie grey/green colour and a subtle liquorice flavour.  I made these into cake pops by inserting legs and shoes (Flumps and Black Jack sweets) connected via cake pop sticks. 

Makes 12

Ingredients:

200g rice crispy cereal
300g Barratts marshamallow Flumps
72 g (2 packets) Barratts Black Jacks
50g butter 
400g milk chocolate 
2 Wham bars
1 packet Barratts Refreshers
12 cake pop sticks  
12 large Barratts Flumps
12 Barratts Black Jacks 
edible silver balls
1 tube of red icing

Method:

Line 2 x 8 inch cake tis with grease proof paper
Place the butter, the 300g marshmallows and 72g of Black Jacks into a large non stick pot over a medium heat, and melt them all together to make a smooth gloopy sauce. Keep stirring to avoidthe mallows sticking or burning to the bottom of the pan
Once melted, pour in the cereal and mix well
Divide the mixture between the two tins and press down well
Leave to chill for an hour, covered with foil in the fridge
After an hour, melt the chocolate 
Pour the chocolate over the two crispy cake bases and smooth over 
Using clean scissors, cut the Wham bars into the strips and then cut those in half 
Take a shape knife, score the chocolate crispy cakes into 6 triangles 
Add a strip of each Wham bar and place along the base/rim of each triangle 
Stick a Refresher sweet on the centre of each Wham bar 'belt' using some the icing 
Put to one side to allow the chocolate to set. Once set, remove the 'hats' from the tin and 
remove the grease proof paper. 
Meanwhile make the cake pop stick witches legs and shoes:take full size Flump and insert a cakepop stick into it. Press the end of the stick into a Black Jack sweet. 
Using scissors, cut a split into the front of the sweet, and then stick 2 edible silver balls 
onto it. 
Insert the other end of the cake pop stick into the bottom of each witch hat.

Eyeball Cookies 

These are so easy and children will have great fun making these treats. Using bought biscuit creams , there is no baking or making involved, just some decorating really. 

Eyeball Cookies

Ingredients:

Makes 12

1 packet of vanilla cream biscuits (I used hobnob creams)
jam that has been slightly warmed in the microwave 
1 tube of red icing 
Barratts Refresher Softies sweets 

Method:
Separate each biscuit. 
Keep the ones with the cream on (the non cream sides can 
still be used or eaten quite easily!)
Take a pastry brush,and coat one side of each Softie with a little jam and then stick them downon to each cream biscuit half 
Using the red icing, make lines on each biscuit to look like blood shot eyes, and add a red doton the top of each Softie too

Zombie Brain Cakes

Each Zombie Brains Cakes hold a secret inside : bogies and warts, which will fall out when you slice inside each ‘brain’ with your fork! Flumps coated with a ‘bloody’ jam glaze sit on top of red velvet cupcakes (made using a cake mix from a box) which are filled with jam blood and sweetie bogies and warts. Gross but fun cupcakes for your Halloween party. 

Zombie Brain Cakes

Ingredients:

Makes 12 

1 box of  red velvet cake mix - including the oil, eggs and water needed to make them with 
1 bag of Barratts Flumps
1 x tub of ready made vanilla flavoured frosting 
Red Jam (I used strawberry) , warmed through in the microwave to make a glaze 
2 packets of Barratts Wham Bamz sweets 

Method:

Make and bake the red velvet cupcakes as per the directions on the box and allow them to cool 
completely
Using clean scissors, cut each marshmallow Flump length ways
Take each cupcakes, and using a piping nozzle, core each centre and remove a small piece of 
cake to make a hollow I the centre
Add some of the Wham Bamz sweets and some of the warmed jam to each cake cavity  
Cover each cake hole with the removed piece of cake 
Take some of the frosting and cover the top of each cake with it 
Next top each frosted cupcake with 5-6 of the Flump slices - with the side facing upwards, BUT leave a gap in the centre of the cake.
Fill the gap with a Flump slice which is the right way up
Using a pastry brush, cover the Flumps with lots of warm jam glaze. 

Gruesome fun food for everyone.
