4 homemade Halloween treats for kids

The spookiest day of the year has arrived

The spookiest day of the year has arrived…so why not plan a last-minute kids’ party with our collection of easy recipes from pumpkin soup to a chocolate cake?

No-bake chocolate cake

Wow the crowd with this ghoulishly good cake – not only does it make for a spectacular centrepiece, but it's much easier to put together than you might think.

Homemade Halloween orangeade

We just love this simple idea: all you need is a witches’ hat, black paint or food colouring and a plastic spider or two to turn a jug of orangeade (the perfect Halloween colour) into something altogether more scary.

Savoury pumpkin loaf

A cheesy pumpkin loaf is going to be a treat on any day of the year. But at Halloween you can up the ante by turning slices into spooky owls, with the help of olives, gherkins and some cream cheese.

Halloween pumpkin soup

This comforting and healthy Halloween pumpkin soup is a doddle. With just a handful of ingredients you can magic up this recipe in no time – and the ghosts are such an easy addition.

There are still plenty of Halloween-related fright night treats in store, from costumes and masks to decorative webs, ghosts and spiders, as well as a range of tableware to add even more atmosphere to your table. Find something for you before the day is up.
