Easy Peasy Halloween Recipes!

Tuesday, October 20th, 2009

I was brows­ing online for some really neat recipes for Hal­loween this evening, and I found a cou­ple of neat and easy recipes at

Here are a few of my Favorite!


Hal­loween Spi­der Cupcakes:

Direc­tions and Info bor­rowed off of their site*

  • Serves: 24
  • Yield: 24 cup­cakes
  • Ready in: 1 hour 30 mins (1 hour Prep - 30 mins Cook)
  • These are a great for a children’s Hal­loween party! Choco­late cake mix is an easy option when you are mak­ing so many. Use liquorice for the legs and jelly beans or smar­ties for the eyes.

    Recipe pro­vided by:



    • 1 packet (500g) choco­late cake mix
    • 500g black liquorice strips
    • 500g white icing
    • mini jelly beans, smar­ties, snakes, fruit bats, cut up false teeth for decoration

    Prepa­ra­tion method

    1.   Pre­pare cup­cakes accord­ing to packet direc­tions. Let cool completely.
    2.   Cut liqorice laces into 8cm sec­tions. Work­ing with one or two cup­cakes at a time, so the icing doesn’t set before dec­o­rat­ing, ice the cup­cakes with the white icing. Insert liquorice pieces into the outer edges of the cup­cakes to make the legs of the spi­der, 3 legs on each side (4 take up too much space). Make eyes and fangs out of the other lol­lies in the scari­est way pos­si­ble. Repeat with remain­ing cupcakes.


    Feel free to play around with the cup­cake dec­o­ra­tions — you can use Smar­ties for the eyes, or snakes for the legs. Just try to make it look as scary as you can!





    Cup­cake Graveyard

  • Serves: 24
  • Yield: 24 Cup­cakes
  • Ready in: 55 mins (30 mins Prep - 25 mins Cook)
  • These are great at Hal­loween. I use cake and icing mix to make it quicker but of course you can use your own recipes for these. You may want to use round bis­cuits and ice them up as ghosts instead of the iced grave­yard and choose your own colours.

    Recipe pro­vided by:



    • 1 pack­age (470g) choco­late cake mix
    • 1 packet (500g) pre­pared icing mix
    • 3/4 cup choco­late sand­wich cookie crumbs
    • 24 morn­ing cof­fee, short­bread or other rec­tan­gu­lar sized biscuits

    Prepa­ra­tion method

    1.   Pre­pare and bake cake mix accord­ing to pack­age direc­tions for cupcakes.
    2.   Make the icing mix and ice the cakes when cool, reserv­ing 1/4 of the mix.
    3.   Fill a pas­try bag, fit­ted with a plain tip, with remain­ing icing. Draw a cross or R.I.P. on each bis­cuit. Stand a dec­o­rated bis­cuit on top of each cake so that it looks like a grave­stone. Place the cakes on a large tray that has been cov­ered with green paper. Place paper ghosts and bats ran­domly through the grave­yard. Serve!
