Halloween Drinks:

Why not try this recipe for a Kid Friendly Halloween Punch:

• 500ml/18fl oz cranberry juice
• 1.5 litres/2½ pints lemonade
• 3 limes, juice only
• large handful gummi worms

1. Pour all of the ingredients into a large glass bowl and mix well.
2. Spread the worms over the edge of the bowl for ghoulish Halloween effect.

Halloween Sweet Treats:

Have a go at making Spooky Spider Cakes. The kids will love decorating their individual spiders!

  • 200g Butter White Chocolate Bar
  • 200g Golden Caster Sugar
  • 200g Self-Raising Flour
  • 4 Eggs
  • Half Tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 6 Tsp of chocolate chips or chopped chocolate
  • 2 Packs of Liquorice Catherine Wheels
  • 12 Tsp Nutella or chocolate spread
  • Liquorice All Sorts
  • 1 Red Strawberry Lace

1. Heat oven to 180C/fan 160C/Gas 4 and line a muffin tin with 12 cases. Put the butter, sugar and flour into a mixing bowl. Break the eggs in a smaller bowl then tip on top of the butter mixture.

2. Add the baking powder and vanilla to the larger bowl, then beat with an electric whisk until smooth and creamy. Stir in the chocolate drops. Spoon the cake mixture into the cases and bake for 20-25 mins until golden. Then cool on a wire rack.

3. To decorate the cakes, unravel the liquorice wheels and cut into lengths with scissors to make dangly legs. Stick 8 into the top of each cake. 

4. Spoon the nutella or chocolate spread on top and spread lightly within the liquorice legs to make a round spider's body. Now cut the Allsorts to make eyes and the red bootlaces to make mouths and then stick them onto the cakes. Will keep for up to 2 days in a cool place.
