Halloween Treats

27 October 2016 | Schwartz

It's the scariest night of the year, and to celebrate, we've got more than a few Halloween treats (and tricks) up our sleeve! The perfect tonic to trick-or-treat sore feet, Devil's Punch is a wonderfully warming drink for adults. For all the family, choose from a tasty pumpkin soup to delicious decorated biscuits. Full of flavour and quick to whip up, these Halloween recipes are ghoulishly good.

Spicy Pumpkin Soup

A terrifically hearty dish, there's nothing quite like pumpkin soup, and this recipe gets an extra kick with a sprinkling of Cajun Seasoning Blend. As well as making the perfect jack-o-lantern, pumpkin is deliciously sweet and full of flavour. This meal requires minimal preparation time, slow-simmering to perfection when left over a low heat.

Halloween Biscuits

There's something special about making your own Halloween treats, and a good glug of golden syrup and a pinch of cinnamon powder makes these biscuits the perfect party food. A great way for kids to while away a rainy afternoon, these spooky shapes can be decorated however you wish. Let your imagination run riot with coloured icing pens, sprinkles and sweets.

Devil's Punch

With red wine, brandy and aromatic mulled wine spice, this punch is a devilishly good drink, and the perfect winter warmer. Left to heat for 10 minutes, once it starts to bubble, it'll fill your home with fragrant spices. Surprising quick and easy to make, experiment with apple, pineapple and lemon juice for a non-alcoholic alternative.

Meringue Vanilla Ghosts

Swirls of egg white with a delicious vanilla flavour, these soft and squidgy meringue ghosts are easier than they look. For a guaranteed melt-in-the-mouth meringue, look out for when the mixture forms stiff peaks, and carefully pipe onto a baking tray before slow-cooking in the oven. A Halloween party piece, watch these spooky treats disappear as soon as they're served.
