Halloween Lunch Ideas for School

If you are like me and hate buying candy and treats for school lunches Take a look at these quick and easy Halloween snack ideas that are super simple to prepare and a healthy alternate to make a super spooky treat ( or trick! ) for your kids.





Mummy Hotdogs

Preheat an oven to 200 degrees Celsius and line a baking tray with baking paper. On the baking tray, place the chipolatas. I use frozen sausages as it is much easier to wrap the pastry.

Using the puff pastry, cut the sheet into three rectangles and fold the two diagonal corners together and then cut into long thin strips.

Wrap the strips around the chipolatas, making sure you leave enough space for a little gap for the eyes. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden and leave to cool. Use our super funky  anime eye picks to bring this sausage mommy to life.


Mandarine Jack o Lantern

These are super easy to make and add a lot of fun to your lunchbox 

There is nothing more iconic than a Jack O Lantern for Halloween. Use mandarins or any type of orange citrus as a substitute to look like a pumpkin and wash under cold running water to remove any wax from the surface of the mandarin. Pat dry the with a cloth. I just use a normal pen to draw the face on as they will peel the skin. Use leaf picks on top to complete the Jack O Lantern look.


Strawberry Ghost

Melt White Chocolate in a microwave or stovetop and once sufficiently melted dip the strawberry into the melted white chocolate or drizzle over a like a zigzag.
Use choc chips for eyes and mouth and put in the fridge to harden.

For the watermelon, ghost, I used a ghost cookie cutters which I bought from Coles. These are great to make fun food too. I mainly use them to cut fruits and sandwiches.

Will you be making a Halloween lunch box this halloween?
