With each passing year the holiday of Halloween becomes more and more popular with children. The origins of Halloween go back to the Celtic tradition with the name “Samhain” and currently children celebrate it by disguising themselves as monstrous beings and asking for sweets and candies from house to house.
Next in PregDream Parents , we are going to give you simple dessert recipes to be able to make them in the kitchen with the help of the smallest of the house. Do not miss the step by step of the following recipes and spend a terrifyingly fun afternoon in the company of the children.
SPIDER COOKIES, DELICIOUSLY TERRIFYING
The first of the desserts that the children are going to make is one of the simplest recipes that we can find since it is not necessary to cook or use sharp cutlery to carry out this step by step. Clear the kitchen counter and place the necessary ingredients: oreo cookies, cream cheese, red or orange food coloring, licorice and lacasitos.
THE LITTLE ONES CAN MAKE THESE SIMPLE RECIPES ON THEIR OWN
CHOCOLATE FAN MILLERS
To get some very delicious ghosts with many vitamins, be sure to read our next recipe and follow the dessert step by step so that the children scream with joy. Gather in the kitchen 1 kilo of strawberries and chocolate to melt black and white. Wash the strawberries but leave the tails. Then melt the chocolate in a bain-marie.
You just have to spread the strawberries with the chocolate you want, leave them on a tray with waxed paper and stretch the chocolate to give them a ghost tail. Let the tray cool in the fridge and to finish off our little friend, put two eyes with the leftover chocolate.
LAND OF THE CHOCOLATE DEAD
The following desserts can also be made by children without danger of anything happening to them in the kitchen. For the following recipes we will need chocolate custard , oreo cookies and gummies shaped like worms. The step by step of this recipe is very simple: in small containers (better if they are transparent) we pour the custard up to half. Next, we crush oreo cookies and sprinkle over the custard. And finally, it only remains to incorporate the worms into the earth and we already have one of the most delicious “earth” desserts that we can find on Halloween night.
Children will have no fear of ending up with these delicious bones. The step-by-step of these bone-in desserts is a bit more complex, so we recommend that children just watch in the kitchen and enjoy devouring them. The ingredients that we will need to carry out these recipes are: 6 egg whites, 300gr. of icing sugar, salt, the juice of half a lemon, strawberry jam and cookies . We begin by preheating the oven to 100º and lining the tray that we are going to use with baking paper.
CHILDREN WILL HAVE NO FEAR OF ENDING THESE DELICIOUS BONES
The blood can not miss on Halloween night and this time our children will not give them any disgusting drink this sweet red liquid. There are numerous recipes for making drinkable blood, but the one we have chosen is the easiest to make and ideal for children.
We will need to collect in the kitchen: 250ml of alcohol-free grenadine liqueur, 250ml of blueberry juice, 250ml of alcohol-free fruit liqueur, 250ml of sparkling water and 2 gelatin leaves. All the ingredients can be found easily in any supermarket or department store. To begin we must hydrate the gelatin sheets with cold water. While the leaves are hydrating, mix the different liquids and heat them in a pot over low heat (always under adult supervision). Then combine the gelatin with the hot juice and pour into small glasses. All that remains is to let it cool in the fridge and enjoy one of the most viscous Halloween desserts.
Fruit cannot be missing from children’s diets and what better way than to include it in the Halloween menu. These types of desserts are easy and quick to make and can even be made at any time of the year for our children to have fruit in a fun way. The step by step of this recipe is: cut the bananas in half and with chocolate chips or melted chocolate draw the eyes and the mouth. And we already have some very appetizing ghosts!
SMILING PUMPKIN COOKIES
One of the most desired desserts by all children are cookies. In this step by step we are going to teach you how to make the recipes for some very smiling pumpkin cookies. On this occasion, the recipe is more complicated than the previous ones that we have made, but your children can also collaborate and have a fun afternoon while they cook.
You will need 230g of butter, 550g of icing sugar, 1 egg and one white, 2 tablespoons of vanilla, 640g of flour, 2 small tablespoons of yeast, 1 lemon, salt, orange, brown and green food coloring. The first thing we will do to carry out our delicious recipe is to preheat the oven to 200º and line the trays with greaseproof paper. Then mix the butter with the sugar for 15 minutes or until the dough is fluffy. Beat the egg and incorporate it into the previous mixture, include the vanilla and mix again until everything is homogeneous.
In another separate bowl, sift the flour with the yeast and salt and add to the previous mixture little by little. Keep kneading until the dough is compact. Sprinkle the kitchen counter with flour and spread the dough on top. Roll out the dough with a rolling pin and shape the cookies with a mold or knife. Once we have the cookies cut, they are placed on the baking tray and heated for 10 minutes, until the edges are golden brown.
THESE RECIPES CAN ALSO BE USED ON BIRTHDAYS
Hopefully these creepy dessert recipes are to the children’s liking and that you have a fun and entertaining Halloween afternoon. Remember that these ‘step by step’ can be done throughout the year and are also perfect for any birthday party, not only for the smallest of the house. Gather the whole family in the kitchen and enjoy the pleasure of cooking together.
