Fancy creating a Halloween Creepy Kitchen this year? Of course you do!
After all, thanks to lockdown, this special time of the year is going to be pretty much curtailed for 2020. At least house-to-housing guising and parties are a no-no this year.
But that doesn’t mean you can’t still have family fun at home. In this post we have come up with a fab range of spookily great Halloween Creepy Kitchen decorating ideas. See if there’s any you fancy from the following lists:
Halloween Creepy Kitchen: accessories
Spider magnets. Most folks can’t stand spiders. And, if your family fits that description, then invest in a packet of black spider magnets. When no-one’s looking, simply stick them on the fridge and other magnetic surfaces. What a scream! Or at least, they will be screaming when they come down to reach in the fridge for milk at breakfast.
Witches hats. Get a stencil for pointed witch hats and make a batch of them using black cardboard. Next, get some clear fishing line and string it through a hole in the top of each hat. Then, with some tacks or clear tape, suspend the hats from the ceiling so it looks as if they’re floating. A simple and effective fright scenario – especially for little ones still not sure of whether witches are real or not…
Skeleton guest. Having a Halloween Creepy Kitchen dinner? Then make sure you invite a plastic skeleton guest along. Borrow one or buy one cheaply online from the likes of eBay or similar selling site. Just remember to dress him a little to make him look more authentic, and perhaps put a black goblet of ‘wine’ into his hand.
Snake wreath. An unusual piece of Halloween décor for your kitchen, but utterly effective – instead of having wild flowers on your Autumn wreath, weave plastic snakes into it instead. At first glance it will make everyone shriek, especially if they go to have a closer look. Just make sure you hang it on the kitchen window so you can freak the neighbours out too.
Halloween Creepy Kitchen: food
Edible eyeballs. Well, they’re edible if you can get over the way they look anyway… These fun eats are actually just chocolate cake balls, with white chocolate, smarties and coloured icing. They take 30 mins to prepare, five mins to cook and this recipe makes 10 of them:
- 100g/4oz madeira cake
- 100g Oreo cookie
- 100g bar milk chocolate, melted
- 200g bar white chocolate, melted
- Smarties and icing pens
- Combine the madeira cake, Oreo cookies and melted chocolate in a food processor and whizz together.
- With your hands in the mixture, create 10 balls, around the size of a walnut each. Put them in the fridge for two hours.
- Once chilled, put a wooden skewer in each of the balls and cover with the white chocolate. Stand all 10 balls in a half pumpkin and put a Smartie on each ball. Put in the fridge again.
- Once the chocolate has set, get an icing pen and create an eye on each.
Halloween Creepy Kitchen: drink
Well, after all that baking and decorating, you deserve to sit down with your feet up at the end of the night. And sipping on a glass of Sweet Poison Cocktail is a great way to do it. The recipe incidentally is from New York’s legendary Jekyll and Hyde Club:
- 1 oz. light rum
- 2 oz. coconut rum
- 1 oz. Blue Curacao
- 1 handful ice
- pineapple juice and pineapple
Mix the alcohol together in a cocktail shaker with ice.
Pour the mixture into a glass – recipe makes one cocktail – then fill up the remainder of the glass with the pineapple juice (which has been sitting in the fridge).
Cut the pineapple into wedges and use one slice to garnish. Voila!
Oh, alright then – you can have another…
