The team at Redbrick Food have put together some inspiration for a spooktacular spread this Halloween… cook if you dare!

PumpkinKrispieTreatsCrispy Pumpkins

  • 3 Tbsp of butter
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • Orange food colouring
  • 5 1/2 cups of mini marshmallows
  • 6 cups of crispy rice cereal
  • mini tootsie rolls
  • candy for decorations

For a sweet but scary treat, melt the butter and marshmallows, then stir in the vanilla extract and add colouring. When cold, mix with the rice crispies and roll into small balls. Set aside on a greaseproof tray to set and add decorations.


Vmpire punch and yeti handVampire’s Punch

  • 4 cups of white rum
  • 4 cups of orange juice
  • 6 cups of pomegranate juice
  • 1/2 cup of freshly squeezed lime or lemon juice
  • 1 litre of soda water

This blood-sucking worthy punch will most definitely get you and your friends into the Halloween spirit! Combine the rum, orange, pomegranate and lime/lemon juice in your punch bowl (or whatever deep item you have to hand) and refrigerate until serving. For an extra creepy effect, fill a rubber glove with water and freeze for 12 hours. To keep your punch chilled, add the hand to the bowl. Scary!


Devil’s Eyes

  • 6 hard-boiled eggs19a1cf841a5a093baf56b1b28a876f21
  • 1 tbsp of mayo
  • 1 tsp chilli flakes
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • olives and chilli sauce

These will be a spicy and spooky addition to the table! After boiling the eggs, peel off the shells and halve. Scoop out the yolks and add to a bowl along with the chilli and mayo. Mix into a creamy paste. Spoon the mixture back onto the eggs and then top with the halved olives. Squeeze the chilli sauce onto the eggs so they look like eye balls. Gross!


Sausage FingersDead Man’s Fingers 

  • Small Frankfurter sausages
  • Mini bread rolls
  • Ketchup (or chilli sauce!)

These dead man’s fingers are cheap and easy to make and look incredibly effective. Simply slice a little bit off the end of the sausages so it looks like a nail bed. Serve the fingers in the mini bread rolls and splatter the ketchup on top.
