How to make Edible Eyeballs for your Halloween Party
Simply halve each of the cherry tomatoes and scoop out all of the seeds, fill up the cream cheese into the tomatoes, add the peas to the centre of the cream cheese to make the pupil of the eyeball and hey presto – a spooky yet yummy eyeball treat!
How to make Apple Bites for the Halloween Party Table
For the apple bites fill a bowl with some water and mix the lemon juice in the water. This will prevent your chopped apples from going brown, which is not a good look. The acid in the lemon helps preserve them and keep them nice and fresh.
Cut each apple into 5 or 6 wedges and remove the core and seeds. Work on one piece of apple at a time and carve a zigzag shape to the skin side, so that it looks like teeth
How to make Witches Fingers for Halloween Party Food
To make your witches fingers cheese snack, first cut the cheddar cheese into finger sized strips, then trim the cheese strip into a ghoulish finger shape and draw the knuckle lines with the end of a spoon.
Place a nail shaped piece of pepper on the end of each fingertip. Creepy, and spellbindingly tasty!
These ideas are also great for Halloween themed lunch boxes or to add some fun to your little one’s lunch at home during October spooky season.
