Did you forget tomorrow is Halloween? Here is a quick, easy, and spooky Halloween recipe perfect for children and adults alike.
One of the perks of living in England is to celebrate Halloween in full…well…kind of…this year we completely forgot. We love going to costume parties and I love carving pumpkins (Riccardo not so much hehe) but we are feeling a bit sicky this weekend, so we’ll enjoy an early one at home.
I couldn’t let the Halloween spirit down though! I quickly baked something, and I was so surprised with the result that thought to share the recipe with you, my friends.
You just need puff pastry, two small apples, two spoons of jam, icing sugar, and candies. It takes me more time to tell you the ingredients than to make it! Plus, the recipe happens to be vegan. You just got to try it!
While I am writing this, I keep peeping out of the window. Every year I hope children will ring our doorbell like in the movies so that I can cover them in chocolate and candies and maybe even scare them a little.
It has been a great disappointed year after year as no one ever dared to show up at our doorstep! This year though I really hope no one will come as you can never be too careful with autumn flu, especially in a covid world! Stay away people!
I am all wrapped up in blankets and hoping to convince Riccardo to watch cosy Halloween movies. The Addams Family, Hocus Pocus, Ghostbusters, Casper, The night before Christmas, The Rocky Horror Picture Show…I love them! What’s your favourite?
I am off now, I feel these mummies look a bit like me at this moment 🧟 Now who said I wasn’t ready for Halloween?
Halloween Mummy PastryCourse: Something SweetDifficulty: Easy
Did you forget it was Halloween? I got you! Here is a quick, easy, and spooky Halloween recipe perfect for children and adults alike.
2 spoons of marmelade or apricot jam
2 small apples
2 spoons of icing sugar
5 g of chocolate (I’ve used 12 melted chocolate chips)
12 edible eyes sugar decorations (or some black jelly beans)
- Unroll the pastry and cut it into 6 equal-sized rectangles
- Prick the centre of each rectangle with a fork and cut the sides into irregular strips
- Add a thin layer of marmalade at the centre and place 6-8 thin apple slices on top
- Cover the filling with puff pastry alternating left and right strips, now you got 6 beautiful mummies!
- Bake them at 200 C for 15 – 20 minutes (fan oven) till puffed up and golden
- Sprinkle the mummies with icing sugar
- Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave (50 seconds at 900 W) and use the melted chocolate to stick the spooky eyes onto your mummies. Enjoy 👀
