by: Katelyn Williams of The Kate Tin | 25 Oct 2018

Whether you’re one of the many South Africans catching on to celebrating Halloween or just want a project to keep the kids busy, these no-bake recipes are so easy, it’s scary!

A couple of packets of Oreos, some chocolate and a few tricks will give you a terrifying treat to amuse both kids and adults. I’ve included a recipe for homemade ‘eyes’ made with royal icing, which give the bats, mummies and ghosts character, but feel free to make your own using white and dark baking chocolate too. Make a large batch and keep them in a ziplock bag then you can pop them on to any food, any time to give it a thrill factor!

How to make your own spooky eyes:

Makes :50 sets of eyes

1 egg white, beaten
1 cup icing sugar, sifted
Black and white food colouring

To make the eyes, whisk the egg white gently then add the icing sugar until a stiff paste forms. Divide the icing into 3 bowls, colour one batch in black, keep one bowl white and reserve one bowl for further colouring. Fill each of the colours into separate piping bags. Cut a small hole at the end of the piping bag. To form the whites of the eyes, pipe small rounds onto a sheet of baking paper and allow it to set slightly, then dot smaller rounds of the black colour on top of the white to form the pupils. Allow to dry overnight before use.
