6 extremely easy Halloween-themed treats to make for a spooktacular gathering

Halloween is just around the corner, and it's worth making the most of this creative time of the year. There is a lot to think about if it isn't the costume, makeup, or decorations; it is the food. 

We have scrolled on your behalf to find six delicious and easy to make spooky-themed party foods that will make any gathering spooktacular. 

From the ridiculously realistic to the ghoulish and gross, look no further as we have got you covered.

This recipe is made to get your guests' teeth chattering. 

It comprises chocolate chip cookies, either store-bought or homemade, marshmallows, red icing and small slices of almond (but for those with nut allergies, you could cut some shards of chocolate). 

To make it extra spooky, add extra red icing to look like blood on the fangs.

This recipe takes a classic recipe and adds candy eyes - that's it, super easy. 

You can buy these relatively cheaply from most supermarkets, or they are pretty easy to make too. 

Make up a batch of your favourite cookies in whatever flavour you like, and whilst they are still warm, cover them in cany eyes. 

Not only will that fit the Halloween theme, but they will also taste delicious.

No, you don't include the holy spirit, but these ghost brownies are set to give your guests the chills for being so delicious! 

The classic flavours of chocolate and marshmallows are combined but with a fun and spooky twist. 

You can follow the recipe or use an old faithful brownie packet mix but enjoy decorating your brownies with sticky marshmallow ghosts.

These cute little cookies will scare those with arachnophobia into trying to eat something delicious. 

Follow the recipe but do so with care for those who have a peanut allergy. 

Be sure to steer well clear of these. 

You could swap out the peanut butter for a similar but alternative ingredient such as chocolate spread or Lotus Biscoff. It is all up to you.
