Trick or Treat – Spooky Snacking!

Whether you are giving out sweets to trick or treaters, having a scary movie marathon or hosting a Halloween party I have pulled together some of my favourite treats to cover every taste and budget.

First up let me share some supermarket finds that won’t break the bank so can be bought in bulk for when the witches come a knocking. There are plenty of accidentally vegan options such as skittles, Starburst, Millions, flying saucers, Ruffles and Swizzels sweeties that can create a cheap and colourful bowl of goodies.

Hartleys glitter jelly is another great accidentally vegan find that will look and taste great at a party! I’ve got a couple of tricks up my sleeve to take it up a notch. Take a lychee and stuff it with a blueberry and voila you have an eye ball that counts as one of your 5 a day, add this to the red jelly and you’ve got a disgusting but delicious treat. If it’s a child free zone then try spiking the glitter jelly with vodka or another vegan friendly tipple. Ain’t got time for jelly? The fruity eyeball looks great in a gin too!

You can always rely on my faves Hotel Chocolat to do seasonal shapes in delicious dark chocolate and are always clearly labelled vegan friendly.

Marks and Spencer’s have a couple of vegan treats in their Halloween range too, who else loved these slime jellies when they were young?!

Not into the sugary stuff? Then get out the sharpie pen out to create creepy clementines and of course the old classic monkey nuts make for cheap healthy nibbles. I’m a little obsessed with beetroot right now so I’m loving these tasty Bear Claws! You can find these in most supermarkets and they come in a range of flavours.

I am having a spooky sleepover with my girls, a pumpkin carving gathering with friends and Mr.Johnson always enjoys a scary movie so no doubt we will watch a good film or two so make sure you are following me on Instagram for all the Halloween fun and tag me with any great spooky snacks you find too!

Big Loves,

*Always check labels but all of the above were vegan friendly in the UK at time of posting.
