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.
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.
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.
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.
