Last year we had the most epic fail when it came to our Halloween bakes. No really. I’m not joking. I followed all the instructions and this is what happened.
Can you believe it? Talk about #parentfail. So anyway, this year I’ve been determined not to do it again.
But then #Blogtober18 day 16 came up with the prompt ‘perfect recipes’ just in time for #NationalBakingWeek.
So this week I give you ‘easy cheesy Halloween Spiders’. I’m not sure how ‘easy’ these are going to be. But let’s give it a go and see… because it can’t get any worse than those slimy ghost bananas!
Easy cheesy Halloween spiders
You will need 3 ingredients to make these easy cheesy Halloween spiders. #WinWin right?! Wooohooo!!! Anyway. Try your best to get your hands on the following:
-A pack of Babybell cheese (any).
-A bag of cranberries…. I say this, but apparently I should have used olives. So… just get anything that looks like they could be eyes.
-A couple of bags of twiglets.
Let’s get making!
Open up a bag of twiglets and snap 4 in half (to make the 8 legs). The littles will love doing this. I’m so pleased I bought a multipack of 6 mini bags because 2 disappeared within minutes *Coughs… Mr Button!!!
Next, prep your Babybell cheese by getting the little ones to peel off the wrappers.
Prep your spiders eye balls. I cut our cranberries in quarters as they were a bit fidderly. Olives may be easier to handle for the little ones.
Put everything together. First stick in the twiglet legs. Next fix the eyeballs on. And…. you’re done!
We used our easy cheesy Halloween spiders as part of a crackers & cheese board this evening, courtesy of Little Button. Yum!
They tasted… interesting and looked pretty decent I would say!
We are going to try making toffee apples next. Wish us luck and send us all the tips you possibly can!!
What are your favourite makes and bakes for Halloween?
