All Hallows’ EAT!
It’s no secret that we love our food here at Kudos Delivered. Whatever the occasion, we’ve got the culinary skills to whip up a masterpiece that will leave anyone satisfied. So we’ve decided to scour the internet looking for the best foods that you can make for your Halloween party; with delicious pumpkin based recipes, spooky snacks and terrifying bakes, we’re sure there will be something to give you the chills.
Throwing a Halloween party? Need quick, delicious, themed food? We’ve got something that will bring your tastebuds backs to life! This incredibly quick and easy layered Graveyard Dip is perfect when you’ve got the guys (and ghouls) around. All you have to do is:
Grab a Pyrex dish and layer the bottom with refried beans.
Add a second layer of sour cream and a traditional Mexican taco seasoning. (Ingredients here)
Create a third layer consisting of 2 mashed avocados, 1 clove of garlic and 2 teaspoons of mayonnaise.
Finally, top with a cup of salsa, sprinkle with spring onions and chill in the fridge.
To create a graveyard scene, cut out shapes from a tortilla and then bake in the oven until golden brown.

Want to show off your culinary flair? Try these decadent Meringue Ghost Tartlets. They look amazing and are devilishly moreish!
To create a ghost meringue, heat water to a boil in a saucepan with a bowl placed above it. Reduce the heat to low.
Place sugar and egg whites in the bowl and whisk continuously until both are combined and the sugar dissolves.
When the mixture is too hot to touch, remove the bowl and beat the mixture until stiff peaks form (yes, just like you’ve seen on GBBO).
Pipe onto a ganache and voila! Or should I say boo?

Let’s be honest, if you’re going to a Halloween party underprepared and dressed as a half-baked Dracula, then you’re most probably going to need a drink to become the Count you really are.
We’ve got just the thing! Here’s a great recipe for a Gory Vampire Cocktail.
Purée some raspberries in a blender, strain the pulp and remove all of the seeds.
Add sugar to the purée and simmer over a medium heat, stirring frequently until the mixture darkens and thickens. Cool until you’re ready to use.
Add vodka, amaretto and ice to a shaker until cold. Stir in orange juice and in soda water and pour into iced glasses.
Fill syringes with puree and pour into the glasses when ready!
We’ve got this far and haven’t mentioned pumpkins yet! What’s wrong with us?! Let us buy you a drink to make it up to you. Well actually… how about we give you the recipe to make a drink instead. Here’s a delicious Halloween Pumpkin Punch that uses dry ice to create awesome plumes of vapour.
Add spiced rum, orange and lemon juice in a bowl, then add spiced syrup and pumpkin purée. Stir together and strain through a fine sieve.
Hollow a pumpkin and place an empty bowl inside. Fill with dry ice and hot water, then place another bowl on top of it.
Add sparkling water to your punch, stirring to combine, then place in the empty bowl above the dry ice.
Give a stir before serving and place a cinnamon stick in the serving glasses.

What else celebrates Halloween like eating a mummy? An oven-baked mummy at that! No, we haven’t turned into zombies, we just love these Jalapeño Popper Mummies. With gorgeous cream cheese and cheddar cheese inside, this is definitely not one to miss.
Pre-heat the oven to 180c. Take out some puff (or filo) pastry from the fridge to soften before opening.
Cut some fiery jalapeños length ways, removing all seeds.
Combine cream cheese, cheddar cheese and some brown sugar in a bowl. Mix well until combined.
Create a batter using salt, egg, pepper and chilli seasoning with flour.
Roll the pastry flat and then cut thin slices of dough. Spoon the cheese mixture into the sliced peppers then dip this into the batter and wrap with dough slices (leaving spaces for the mummies’ eyes!).
Bake until golden brown, then place the edible eyes on top!

Here’s one of my personal favourites, a teeth chattering set of dentures. Why so scary? They’re owned by the Dracula, obviously. These ‘dentures’ are incredibly straightforward and the results look amazing!
Grab some cookie dough and bake however many cookies (dentures) you would like to create.
Then add a few more in case you get hungry.
Allow the cookies to cool. Slice in half, then add a row of frosting on either side of the cookie creating a gum effect.
Add a row of marshmallow teeth to one side of the cookies, then place the other side on top (you can always add another marshmallow behind the teeth for support).
Once placed together, add two slices of almonds to create a fang effect! Add frosting to the almonds if you find them difficult to stick to the marshmallow.
Eat, enjoy and have a FANGtastic time (get it?). Full recipe here.
We hope you enjoy making these delicious recipes!
