Five completely genius ideas for spooky Halloween treats 2020

Halloween is coming and as much as we love a warming bowl of pumpkin soup, it's not always the most thrilling of prospects for the younger members of the family. We've scoured the internet, over a plate of florentines and some herbal tea, to bring you a few of our favourite spooky Halloween treats and ideas discovered amongst the brilliant minds of the blogosphere. Countdown to 31st? We are not afraid, bring it on!

1 Cheat yourself some glow in the dark eyeball cupcakes

From the clever lot at the The Inspiration edit comes a Halloween cupcake recipe we can all manage since the cake bit is bought ( although clearly you can bake them yourselves ). The added bonus of these spooky cakes is that the quite revolting decorations will keep your children happy for quite some time.

You will need cupcakes, frosting ( which you can buy ready-made ), glow in the dark bracelets, food colouring and decorating gel. Far from healthy, but isn't that what Halloween is all about?

All you need is jelly cubes, a mixing jug and some straws.
