Whether you’re having a Halloween party or just trying to celebrate the occasion yourself, Halloween should be scary and fun even when it comes to eating. In any and every party, what there is to eat, is usually the main discussion of the night during and after the party and this is why it’s one of the most important things.
Here are a few Halloween Recipes to die for.
There are plenty of kinds of Halloween recipes you can make ranging from cakes, to dips or even just small simple but still scary snacks. One of the Halloween recipes that kids can’t seem to get enough of are Pumpkin pasties.
The ingredients for Spooky Pumpkin Pasties are as follows:
- One pound of canned pumpkin
- Two slightly beaten eggs
- Half a teaspoon of salt
- Half a teaspoon of ginger
- Half a teaspoon of cloves
- One teaspoon of cinnamon
- One and two-third cups of milk
- Three fourths a cup of sugar
- Half a teaspoon of allspice
- Nine ounce pie crust pastry
Roll the pastry crust thin and cut into circles approximately 4 inches in diameter. Put a spoonful of filling near the center. Fold over the crust into a half-circle and firmly crimp the edges closed. Don’t forget to add vent slits or fork holes in the top before placing on a baking sheet.
Bake Pasties at 400 degrees F until crust is a light golden brown, which is usually about 10 minutes.
Another of the popular easy Halloween recipes seems to be Horror Sugar Cookies, and the ingredients for those are as follows:
- Four tablespoons of milk
- Two cups of margarine/butter
- Two and one-fourth cups of sugar
- Three eggs
- One and a half teaspoon of vanilla
- Six cups of flour
- Three-fourth teaspoon of salt
They should be baked at 375F for 12 minutes and should be put in laid flat at about one-fourth of an inch thick.
Remember that during Halloween, it’s one of the few times a year where parents encourage their kids to eat food that is rotten for their teeth or just in general isn’t good for their health. While this food may be delicious and some of the recipes make great party food, you should always watch how much of the bad food you are eating and always remember to brush your teeth and remind your kids to brush their teeth after eating the food. After all, there is no reason that a Halloween party can’t be fun and responsible at the exact same time.
