  • Recipe: Devilicious Halloween Cookies

    These devilicious cookies are the perfect treat for your ghoulish guests this Halloween!  Use our cookie cutters to create spooky shapes then get creative with your icing to really make these cookies spooktacular!

    Preparation time: 1 to 2 hours

    Cooking time: 10 to 30 mins

    Serves: 20

    Ingredients

    • 250g/9oz unsalted butter, softened
    • 250g/9oz golden caster sugar
    • 2 free-range eggs, lightly beaten
    • ½ tsp vanilla extract
    • 500g/1lb 2oz plain flour
    • red and black food colouring (optional)
    • 1 tsp baking powder
    • Halloween-themed cookie cutters
    • red, white and black writing icing
    • 200g/7oz ready-to-roll fondant icing
    • 1 tbsp apricot jam, warmed with 1tsp water

    Method

    1. Beat together the butter and sugar in a large bowl, preferably using an electric mixer, until the mixture is light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs and vanilla extract. (If the mixture looks a little curdled, add a spoonful of the flour.) If you’re using food colouring, add a few drops to the mixture.

    2. Sift together the flour and baking powder in a separate bowl. Stir the flour into the butter mixture and work into a dough using floured hands. Turn onto a floured work surface and knead into a ball (the dough will be quite wet). Divide the dough into two portions, wrap in cling film and leave to chill in the fridge for at least one hour.

    3. Preheat the oven to 170C/325F/Gas 3. Line two baking trays with greaseproof paper.

    4. Roll the dough out to a 0.5cm/¼in thickness on lightly floured work surface. (It’s best to roll out one portion of the dough at a time, leaving the remainder in the fridge.) Cut shapes out with the Halloween cutters. Take a few limbs and heads off the gingerbread man for added gore.

    5. Place the cookies onto the baking tray, leaving a gap between them in case they spread a little.

    6. Bake for 12-15 minutes, leave on the tray for 10 minutes and then move to a wire rack to finish cooling.

    7. Once cool, let your imagination run wild. Use the red writing icing along the edges of the missing limbs and heads as blood. For the skeletons and mummies, roll the fondant icing out to a 0.5cm/¼in thickness on a work surface dusted with icing sugar and cut out shapes using the same cutters as the cookies. Brush the cookies with the warmed apricot jam and stick the icing onto the cookies. Decorate with the white and black writing icing.

  • Trick or Treat? Get all the Halloween Sweets You Need from Poundstretcher

    Trick or treat! That's right, it's that time of the year once again; Halloween is almost upon us!

    What better way to celebrate this horrifying season than with mouth-watering Halloween sweets?! Whether you wish to hand them out to trick-or-treaters or use them during spooky-scary Halloween parties, Poundstretcher have you covered with a selection of deliciously terrifying Halloween sweets!

    Halloween, formerly known as All Hallows Eve, has been thought to have its beginnings in pagan festivals held around the end of October here in the UK. People originally believed that the spirits of the dead wandered amongst the living. To avoid any nasty confrontations, they dressed in costumes whenever they had t go outside.

    Trick-or-treating arose from these beliefs. The tradition of going from house-to-house 'trick-or-treating' in the UK goes as far back as the 16th century. Throughout the years these customs were outlawed, changed, and developed into the celebrations we see today.

    So, if you're seeking for more treats than tricks this year, why not celebrate this  Halloween in 2017 with Poundstretcher? Our range of affordable and fantastic Halloween sweets will surely be a pleasant shock.

    M-M-M-Murder Motel!

    Want a great mix of spooky Halloween sweets that are themed accordingly and absolutely amazing to sink your fangs into? Well then, our Murder Motel range is just what you're looking for!

    From cyclops eyeballs and gummy body parts to shrunken skull lollipops, you'll find a spine-chilling array of terrifying and gory delights that any little (or big) monster will love to snack on. Or maybe you prefer some brain food instead? Have a mind-tingling sensation with these brain rot sherbet bottles. They're all perfect for Halloween parties and are all just £1 each!

     

     

    Spooky Scary Swizzels

    Maybe you don't want to be feasting on body parts and eyeballs? Maybe you'd rather have a Halloween that's full of Swizzels sweets instead?!

    We have a wide array from Squashies to traditional drumsticks, but why settle for the same old stuff? It's Halloween, try something themed for the occasion! Like this Swizzels Trick Or Treat Lolly Mix, or how about some Squashies with their special orange & blackcurrant flavours?

    Fancy something in higher quantity? We have you covered with these Swizzels Monster Treats of pure hair-raising delight!

     

    Gooey And Oh-So Sweet Marshmallow Cakes

    Maybe you don't want confectionery? Perhaps you'd rather have some delicious chocolate on Halloween instead? Well, if that's what you're after you can have that and so much more with these products from Mammoet Cakes!

    If you're in the mood for a chocolate coating that covers a soft centre of marshmallow filling, then why not give these Marshmallow Chocnight Cakes a try? Or better yet, try these that have been sprinkled with coconut!

     

    Chocolate in Nets!

    Or if you'd rather keep it on the small-scale, then these chocolate pumpkin balls (or eyeballs if you feel gruesome) are perfect as party favours or for giving out to trick-or-treaters.
