10 Adorable Halloween Snack Recipes That You Need To Try

10 Adorable Halloween Snack Recipes That You Need To Try

1.Not So Spooky Oreo Bats

    Not only are these wee little bats super cute, they’re also unbelievable simple and versatile. So long as you have some Oreos, black card and lollipop sticks, you can use whatever you want to make the eyes! I’m lazy, so candy eyes all the way for me. Now, somebody pass the milk.

    2. Eyeball Jell-O

      This is a deliciously creepy-yet-cute dessert that’s perfect for a Halloween party. It also requires minimal ingredients (jello-o, gelatine and food dye), which always makes me happy. I like that this will work for both children’s and adult parties. Hell, I recommend slipping a little vodka in there so you can really get the party started.

      3. Fog Drinks

        If you really want to impress your party goers (whether they’re kids or not), this drink is the way to do it! Heston Blumenthal can be blamed for raising the bar when it comes to culinary concoctions, and when it means making drinks this cool looking, we should be bowing at his feet. The recipe is pretty simple for the most part – you can use any type of base liquid you like, and gummy worms are pretty simple to come by. The only issue you may have is getting your hands on some dry ice, although it’s starting to become more easily obtainable. Once again, don’t be afraid to add a cheeky nip into your own glasses, parents.

        4. Bloody Popcorn Brains

          I think I may have just found a socially acceptable way to combine my love of popcorn and NBC’s Hannibal. This tasty Halloween treat also has something else going for it – it combines both savoury and sweet flavours, which is often a winner in my hungry opinion. I think that the combination of popcorn with white chocolate and marshmallow sounds delectable. The popped corn also does really look like bloody brains, so is bound to be a hit with the kids.

          5. Chocolate Covered Pumpkin Pretzels

            Apparently I’m on a salty and sweet roll, because next up we have these adorable chocolate covered pretzels. I never really noticed how they are the perfect shape for mini pumpkin – but they are! Once again the ingredient count is relatively low, and the only slightly trickier item may be the leaf tip. I think a piping bag could also be used with icing for the greenery

            6. Oreo Owl Cupcakes

              Yep, more Oreos! These gorgeous Halloween cupcakes can be whipped up in no time for a last minute party snack. Although I’m not generally a fan of recipes that call for packet cake mix, I respect the convenience that it can lend. The great thing is that you can also use your own favourite chocolate cupcake recipe and it will work perfectly.

              7. Graveyard Pudding Cups

                Aren’t these little ghosts boo-tiful? Yeah, I said it.

                Seriously, these little guys are the epitome of cute halloween snacks. You’ll be pleased to note that the dirt involves using our old friend Oreos. Apparently these cookies own Halloween or something. If you’re not up for making your own marshmallow ghosts, you can easily buy pre-made ones.

                8. The Pear Witch Project

                  I promise that I didn’t just pick this one for the name, although it was a huge draw card. Just because it’s Halloween doesn’t mean that everything that you eat will help to buy your dentist a new beach house. This tasty witch has the best of both worlds, as it includes both fruit and some sweet additions. Now before you say anything, I realise that the recipe calls for Oreo ice cream cones. I swear to God I’m not doing this on purpose or being paid by Nabisco. That would be awesome though. Obviously, you can choose whatever type of cone you wish!

                  9. Banana Ghosts with Tangerine Pumpkins

                    Another fruity one for the healthy people! I swear I think that these are super cute and easy! Also, it really is good to have healthy alternatives on a day that is dominated by candy.

                    10. Melted Witch Cookies

                      Fans of Wicked may not be into this one, but I thought this was a really unique and creative idea! The great thing is that you can use any basic cookie recipe, so feel free to go with your favourite!

                      10 Small Changes To Make Your House Feel Like A Home

                      10 Small Changes To Make Your House Feel Like A Home

                      Your house is more than just a building that you live in. It should be a home that makes you feel welcome as soon as you open the front door.

                      Making your house feel like a home is not something that simply happens on its own. You need to make some changes to a house when you move in, to give it that cozy, warm feeling that turns it into a true home. To help you speed the process, follow this guide to 10 small changes to make your house feel like a home.

                      1. Make the Windows Your Own

                      When you move into a home, they often come with boring Venetian blinds or less than attractive curtains.

                      One of the best ways you can instantly warm your home and make it showcase your style is to add some new window dressing. Adding beautiful curtains not only improves your home’s appearance, but it can also help to control the temperature.

                      2. Put up Some Art

                      If you have a lot of bare walls in your home, it will seem sterile no matter how beautiful your paint or wallpaper is.

                      Hanging art on the walls will instantly give it personality and make it feel like home.

                      3. Improve the Aroma

                      A house that is not filled with inviting smells will never feel like a home. There are loads of ways you can make your home smell nice. There are tons of air fresheners on the market you can use.

                      Incense and scented candles are a nice option as well. Don’t forget that baking in a home is also a great way to fill it with an aroma that instantly smells like home as soon as you open the front door.

                      4. Put out Lots of Pillows and Throws

                      A great way to make your home look warm and inviting is to place lots of pillows and throws out on the furniture. It is much better to have too many pillows than not enough.

                      There is nothing like the feeling of sinking into a cushiony pillow that feels like a cloud to make you feel like you are at home.

                      5. Instantly Class up Your Closet

                      If your closet is filled with wire or plastic hangers, it will never truly feel homey. To instantly make your closet feel classy, change out your old hangers for wooden ones.

                      Not only do they look great, but they are better for hanging your clothes as well.

                      6. Improve Your Air Quality

                      One of the most overlooked ways to make your house feel more like a home is to improve its air quality.

                      The easiest and best way to upgrade the air quality in your home is to change the old, dirty filters in your furnace regularly. Get some air filters delivered to your home so that you always have some on hand.

                      7. Fill it with Plants

                      Another way to improve the air quality in your home is to fill it with plants. You should have plants in every room of your home.

                      They help to improve the air quality and they look beautiful. As well as making your home appear homier, plants also help to boost your mood and lower your stress levels.

                      8. Change the Doorknobs

                      Most people don’t really give their doorknobs a second thought unless they are broken. That is a shame because changing your doorknobs is an easy way to add personality to your home.

                      Changing your old, boring doorknobs to new ones that are works of art will instantly brighten your home.

                      9. Upgrade Your Tub or Shower

                      There is nothing like luxuriating in a whirlpool bath or steam shower to make the cares of the day melt away. Your family deserves a bit of luxury when they are in their bathroom.

                      Install a new shower or tub today to make your bathroom worthy of a place in your home.

                      10. Fresh Cut Flowers

                      You can make any room in your house feel homier by placing a vase full of beautiful flowers in it. The gorgeous look and intoxicating aroma of fresh cut flowers will immediately brighten your day when you encounter them.

                      You don’t have to make all these changes at once. Try one or two a day though, and your house will feel like a home before you know it. The trick is to constantly keep adding these homey touches to make your home a place worthy of its name.
