Hallowe’en was originally a Celtic ‘New Years’ celebration and believed to be a time when departed souls would return to their home and were visible to the living. Nowadays it’s more about two things; costumes and treats! If you want to up your treat game without the waste here are some simple and inexpensive treat ideas to try.

My kids love these Hot Dog Mummies, which you make by simply wrapping strips of short crust or puff pastry around hot dogs and baking them at 180 degrees for 15 – 20 minutes. Once cool, dot mustard on the hot dogs to make eyes.

Fancy meatballs instead of hot dogs? Then just wrap some tagliatelle around some meatballs and dot with mustard and voilà meatball mummies.

To make this haunted pizza use a ghost cookie cutter to make ghost shapes out of slices of a firm cheese and place on the pizza about 1 minute before it’s finished cooking – any longer and it’ll become an indistinguishable blob. Use small pieces of olives to make eyes for the ghost when the pizza is cooked.
