Every year I’m thinking of new recipes for Halloween, and I start by looking at what I’ve done before. The first three recipes are from my cook blog: CookStyle. I’m going to share a fun recipe from a fellow blogger and a few I saw on Instagram. I also have a Pinterest board filled with ideas, and a folder on my laptop with pics from magazines, including the free ones you can get from a few supermarkets. I should share more recipes, because baking/cooking for Halloween is something I do enjoy a lot. My post is called recipes for Halloween, but is more a mix of ideas.
Of course I had to start with black bread. I loved it, I also made black pizza, and is so easy to make. It’s basic bread recipe with a bit of black food colouring. With the sesame seeds on top looks very pretty. I wonder if I should try with Nigella seeds instead, those are black, like a bit of extra creepiness.
This Graveyard cake was so fun to make. Any sponge, covered with sticky toffee and decorated with spooky things, another very easy idea. If I was to make this cake again, I would bake some biscuits for decoration, so I can handle easier the dough and get more details.
How cute are these spooky eyes? Shop-bought doughnuts, shop-bought chocolate eyes and a bit of strawberry jam. It’s the kind of thing you can make when you don’t have time to bake.
If you’d rather make some spooky eyes yourself, have a look at these, made by Ruth. You can find the recipe on her blog, craftwithcartwright.co.uk. I really like her idea, so I might bake a batch of these for Halloween. We love biscuits and filled with jam sound really nice.
Spider cookies with lots of chocolate. Most people would love these and, in our house, these would be very appreciated too. These were made by Helen with a little help from her daughter. The recipe is at www.cookingwithmykids.co.uk.
Chocolates and candy melts, that is a combination that I would like to try. I think these chocolates look very nice, quite posh. If you fancy making them, check the recipe made by Olivia and shared on dungarees-and-donuts.
A fun, vegan tray bake with a bit of dark chocolate on top, that sounds delicious. This yummy looking spider web bake was made by Miss Pond, at misspond.com.
Now, to finish, I’m sharing three ideas of cakes and desserts I’ve made in the last few years.
This is a black cake from last year. Don’t miss our very funny outfits. By the way, we’ve actually used those when we’ve renovated one of the rooms.
Brains and a purple foam, it doesn’t get more Halloweenish than this. Recipe made back in 2016. The brains are coffee, using the recipe for Coffee Jelly I’ve share on my food blog. That is a must try, it’s really delicious.
Lastly is the coffin from 2015. I didn’t mix all the sugar, to create the extra spookiness.
Do you have any specific recipes for Halloween you want to try?
