Sweet treats and scarily good snacks for your Halloween celebration...

With Halloween falling on a Saturday this year, it's a great opportunity to catch up with loved ones you haven't been able to visit during lockdown. If public events are called off, Halloween house parties for a small number of friends and family will be the way forward. With that in mind, you may be on the look out for some fun Halloween party ideas. So we've created some frightfully good Halloween party food inspiration that adults and kids will love.

Buffet ideas for Halloween party

The good news is all the following Halloween treats are simple and easy party food ideas that can be created for less than £20.

Creepy witch fingers

These chocolate covered witches fingers are a fun way to decorate and add spooky Halloween snacks to the party table. Kids will love helping out prepping these.


225g white chocolate
20 Grissini Breadsticks or Pretzel sticks
20 Roasted Almonds or Pumpkin seeds



1. Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper. Place chocolate in a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high in 30 second increments until almost melted, stirring occasionally until smooth.

2. Dip each breadstick into the melted chocolate spooning some chocolate over the breadstick to coat, leave about three inches uncoated at one end. Carefully place on prepared greaseproof paper.

3. Immediately press one almond onto coated tip to resemble a fingernail. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Refrigerate for 15 minutes to set chocolate. Fingers can be kept at room temperature in an airtight container up to two weeks.


Spooky ghost muffins

Decorate your Halloween cupcakes or muffins with white fondant icing to create charming little floating ghosts. Make the muffins at home or buy some pre-made to skip the baking!


(Makes six)

Six pre-made muffins of your choice
250g white icing
50g jam
Black writing icing to decorate

1. Start by cutting the rounded top off each muffin to make a flat surface. Turn upside down on a board and slowly peel off the cases

2. Prepare your workspace by dusting icing sugar over a flat surface to stop the icing from sticking. Roll out the icing to a thickness of about half a centimetre. Use a cookie cutter or a small bowl cut to 6cm x 13cm (approx) circles

3. Lightly brush the muffins with jam then position one icing circle over the top of each muffin. Press to flatten the top, then let the icing fall around the edges to look like floaty ghosts. Adjust the folds as necessary

4. Draw on some funky or spooky eyes with the writing icing. Leave to set for 10 minutes then serve.
