Halloween is around the corner, if you are entertaining your friends and kids, it’s time to bring out the pumpkins, spider decorations and fake cobwebs.
Halloween Parties can be a lot of fun, especially when Bob (your most quiet friend) comes dressed up like a Zombie with fake blood streaming down his face, or your most conservative friend comes scantily dressed in that revealing witches outfit.
With all the festivities afoot, food can be another great conversation starter, kids also love this time of year and we bring you some great Halloween party recipes to compliment this very spooky event.
The Great Pumkin Cheese Ball
- 2 blocks of white cheddar- shredded
- 1 pack of soft cream cheese
- 2 logs of goats cheese softened
- ½ teaspoon of Cheddar
- Braided Pretzel and leaf
- Assorted Crackers and vegetables such as celery and carrots.
Combine all the cheese and pepper to form a ball. Shape the cheese ball with a spatula to resemble a pumpkin.
Insert the braided pretzel into the top of the pumpkin shaped cheese to resemble a stem. Place the leaf next to it.
Ensure that your cheese is kept in the fridge to chill prior to your party. Serve with assorted crackers and vegetables as required.
Sausage and Bacon Swizzles
- 12 Rashes of streaky bacon
- 12 Chipolata Sausages
- Tomato Sauce
Preheat oven to 200 degrees and lLay the bacon out flat and squirt a thin line of tomatoes sauce down the middle of each.
Take a sausage and place it at the end of one of the rashes of bacon, roll it up so that the bacon covers the entire sausage.
Do this for all sausages.
Put on a greased baking tray and cook for 20 minutes.
Pop into a serving dish.
This tastes great served with a dip of Nando’s perinaise or even plain mayo.
Olive Spiders(View Source)
Doesn’t get much easier than this, all you need are olives, rosemary stems and capers.
Simply make a few holes in each side of the olives and place the rosemary stems in each to resemble spider legs.
Secure a caper to the end of each olive and secure with another rosemary stem. Your Olives now resemble spiders.
