Oreo Eyeballs

Buy a packet of Oreo cookies (or any type of chocolate cream biscuit will do). Pull the cookies apart and add some coloured decorating gel for the colour of the eyes (you could use icing if you needed to). Add a Smartie or M&M to complete the eyeball. To finish the look add some red veins by using some decorating gel or icing.

Witches Hat Cupcake

Make your favourite flavoured cupcakes without whatever coloured icing you prefer. Then you will need some chocolate flavoured ice-cream cones (or you can dip your own normal cones in chocolate). Add a buckle and belt using some frosting to complete the witch’s hat look.

If you want to fill the cone with some lollies for an extra surprise and add on the top of the cupcakes.

Dead Man’s Finger Sandwiches

With some slices of bread, remove the crusts and flatten the bread with a rolling pin. Spread cream cheese or peanut butter on the bread before rolling up. Make three indentations with a blunt knife to look like finger joints.

Trim the ends into a V shape and stick on an almond to form the nails.

For maximum ‘gross’ factor, add a bit of strawberry jam at the end of the finger for the blood.

Cookie Graveyard

Bake some brownies as you normally would and allow them to cool completely. Blitz up some chocolate wafers and cookies and spread an even layer of the crumbs over the top. And add a few sour worms on top.

Use oval shaped arrowroot biscuits to create the graves and add the messages using a decorative gel or icing. Stick the tombstones into the brownie mix and you have yourself a creepy yet delicious cookie graveyard.
