I also start work tomorrow!
A HUGE part of both Halloween and Samhain is…the FOOD!
Here are some food, and a recipe with them that I have actually used over the years. Since I am not a confident cook, below are all the recipes that I actually have used. I’m going to also include my recommendations.
This is clearly the easiest dish to make, and also one of the yummiest. You just generally melt some marshmallows and chocolate buds together, and use the biscuits or sweet crackers to dip with. These days you can find vegan friendly marshmallows as well. So you can make two different dips, but one vegan friendly.
Strawberry Ghosts – Delish
These are also pretty easy, because it’s just strawberries dipped in white chocolate, with little chocolate frosting for eyes. Of course though, if you’re running out of time though (sometimes the icing and the strawberries, kind of “melt” into each other), don’t worry about the eyes.
Graveyard Mousse – KidSpot: KiwiGirl
I have differed this recipe as few times. You can make the mousse yourself, or just buy the mousse (especially if you have a place that makes really nice mousse). You can put all sorts of animal lollies in it. I love getting frogs (which we have in Australia) sour worms. You can use any kind of biscuits for the Headstones, or none at all. One time I put gummy bears in the mousse, making it look like some buried them. There are body part lollies.
Monster Munch – Delish
Again, this is one that you can differ to your tastes. I suggest using a sweet and/or salty, popcorn. I would also suggest just using white chocolate, rather than milk or dark chocolate. I just found that the white chocolate just made it taste a little sweeter. You can add whatever you want as well, I usually use just candy corn, white chocolate drizzled, icing sugar and sweet and salty popcorn. In the recipe, the author suggests that you can use pretzels, M&Ms, Reese’s pieces.
Mummy Hotdogs – Homemade Interests
Now this is one of the harder recipes that I found to do, mainly because it a little fidgety. But they are a lot of fun to eat. Remember you don’t need to heat up the hotdogs in water, you wait until they are wrapped, and placed into the oven. They cook in the oven, with the dough wrapped around. Of course, you can choose whatever dip you want. The usual sauces and condiments go well with this recipe.
I love to drink too, all drinks…except jagerbombs and that horrible water, what’s it called, it’s got all bubbles in it…Oh, and that aniseed stuff. I have tried experiments over the years, but I cannot get drinks right.
