Spooky Snacks...

Primula Autumn Recipes.

Spooky Snacks.

The darker nights are drawing in which means it’s almost time for two of our favourite annual events, Halloween and Bonfire Night, and what better way to celebrate both than with friends and family.

The chefs at Primula have been hard at work cooking up an autumnal recipe book to create the perfect Halloween party spread or post-Bonfire snacks - treating the family to high-taste recipes that look great, taste great and are simple to make. So, whether you’ve been out trick-or-treating or keeping toasty warm next to the bonfire, create the perfect themed party snacks for when the revellers return home.

A spokesperson for Primula said: “This is the perfect time of year to throw a themed party with warm comfort food to warm up trick-or-treaters and while great taste is important, chefs should be able to enjoy the party too, so our party snacks are delicious but also super simple to make, giving you more time to create the perfect table display sure to impress all the boys and ghouls.

Halloween Fun Pack From Flora Butter : Review...

Big thanks to Flora for sending us a Halloween fun pack to keep the children entertained this week. 

We have had a great time, dressing up, making cakes, playing games and getting ready for Halloween. 

My daughter was only saying the other day 'mum I need a new Halloween costume' and this witches costume was the first thing she pulled out of the box.

The first cakes we made were these yummy Banana cupcakes.

So yummy, I've added the link to the recipe so you can try them too...

I let my son make these as he was looking forward to making some cakes...

They tasted amazing!!

We can't wait to make these again..

On Friday we had lots of fun carving our Pumpkins.

This was my favourite cake we made. 

A Halloween cake that looks like a graveyard. 

The first cake I made I burnt.

So I made another one and we shared it after Halloween. 

No worries as it was worth weighting for.

Here is the recipe for Halloween Cake...

Jelly worms were a little harder to master...

Maybe next time they will turn out perfect!?!

My daughter loved the colour me in pumpkin...

For lots more cool ideas I have shared a link to the fun pack so you can download them all --- the fun pack here...

About this post~

We were kindly sent a Halloween fun pack to share all our half term fun. We were not paid for this post and all thoughts are my own honest opinion. This post will be entered into a Flora bloggers competition too.
