If you’re more of a Stranger Things than Nightmare on Elm Street fan, these Halloween recipes are just the thing for a ghoulishly good time. So set the table ready for a freaky feast and get all of your favourite horror movies ready to roll - this scarily good menu will keep you going through a whole host of Halloween fun!
Start your day off spookily with this sumptuous stack for breakfast - these Maple Street pancakes are straight off the Stranger Things menu! What’s more, if there’s one day breakfast for dinner is acceptable it must be Halloween – so why not surprise the whole party with a sweet and scrummy starter?
This time of year is perfect for getting a little experimental in the kitchen – but there’s no doubt about it – the slightly unusual chicken and waffle combination is a sure-fire hit! Simply sandwich herby roast chicken breast between a slightly sweetened waffle and top with BBQ sauce and a hit of Sriracha. Delish!
No dish says party quite like a pizza – so why not get everyone in the kitchen to tailor their own? If you’re feeling brave, mix up the toppings with a few surprises – a little jalapeno in the olives, some chilli in the tomatoes – or for the very wicked, one or two pieces of popping candy in the sea salt.
Ever wondered what to do with the inside of a jack-o-lantern? Well this recipe might be for you. This classic autumnal dessert gets a spicy hit with a mix of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and ground cloves – just enough to keep the spooky chills at bay during the horror film. Be sure to sweeten it up with a ghoulish whipped cream smile!
Halloween calls for the unexpected – and what could be more surprising than a spicy upside-down pudding? Fill the round pineapple slices with jam and they double perfectly for giant eyes – so be sure to prepare this cake ahead of time for a delightfully spooky centrepiece.
