Family friendly Halloween recipes

Every year, we have a little tea party on Halloween for our two and their cousins. The kids love it; they get dressed up, enjoy some spooky food, have a boogie and then head out to Trick or Treat at our family’s houses. I’ve been searching for the best frightening feast ideas, here are some of my favourites…

Meaty Mummies

These mummy inspired sausage rolls, from My Fussy Eater, are a great way to get some savoury food into the Halloween party spread, and are bound to go down a treat with the kiddies! Grab the edible eyes from Amazon.

Spooky Spiders

This spooky spider biscuit recipe comes from the BBC Good Food website, and it’s such a great idea!
