Hallowe'en!

On the off chance your children have yet to remind you, tomorrow is Hallowe'en! If they would like to learn more about the history of Hallowe'en, send them over to our sister Blog, The Diary of Dorothy Whiskers.

Here at The Recipe Resource we have been busy preparing some old favourites with a Hallowe'en twist, and inventing some new ones!



If your little ones are at nursery tomorrow, I posted a lunch box suggestion last year which popped up on Social Media.




You can adjust this to suit your child's diet, so use houmous/sweet potato puree/nut butter on the pumpkin and this could be a roll (just made pumpkin rolls with the Juvela Harvest White Mix here in silicone pumpkin moulds) or savoury cookies. Similarly alter the filling for the celery and se red pepper if strawberries are not tolerated, raisins instead of the olive.... be inventive!

Today I made the chocolate muffins from here which would not work so well for egg allergy sufferers as you are substituting 3 eggs. However, I have used cornbread with cocoa powder which always achieves excellent results. Then I popped them into Hallowe'en cupcake cases from ASDA and iced them with the Betty Crocker Chocolate Fudge icing which is, surprisingly free from most things! lastly the ASDA graveyard decoration kit was also free from all we were avoiding but would not suit everyone.

The Krispy Cakes are Little O's (but could have been any cereal) with melted safe chocolate and a little golden syrup mixed with them and left to set, with Haribo Mini Halloween Jellies on top.

There are plenty of Hallowe'en treats available for children with allergies, although most reach for Haribo, but with a bit of imagination and a few cutters, stamps and accessories you can achieve a great deal!

I've just finished decorating, and we're all set!

  9. I love those cupcakes. My kids were away this Halloween so we haven't had any treats in the house at all. Good for my diet but it hasn't felt like Halloween at all.
