A spooky movie night is essential in the run up to Halloween, here’s what you need for a frightful night in.
There are lots of Halloween themed food you could make for your night in. Find some inspiration from one of our previous Halloween blog here, OR try making this Halloween themed mix:
- 12 cups popped popcorn
- 3 cups mini-twist pretzels
- 1 cup roasted, salted peanuts
- 1 cup candy corn
- 1 cup Reese's Pieces
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2/3 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1/4 cup butter
In a large bowl, mix the popcorn, pretzels, peanuts, candy corn and Reese’s pieces and set aside. In a saucepan, bring the honey, sugar, salt, peanut butter and butter to a boil over medium heat while constantly stirring. Then let it boil without stirring for a couple of minutes and remove from heat. Drizzle it over the popcorn mixture and stir it around to coat it all. Now you could either let it cool on a baking sheets and break it up to serve, or portion them in cones or muffin trays. It does get sticky, so keep the wipes ready to wash off yourself and the kitchen with.
The decorations that make your friends go…
You could really go all out with this if you want to, so make sure you check what Halloween decorations you have lying about before you buy new things. To get that spooky atmosphere, you could turn off the lights and light candles around the room. Be aware of fire hazards when you do this. You could also decorate with some fake spider webs and if you have, the carved pumpkin you made.
The cosy costume
Think comfy and spooky. There will be lots of Halloween themed pyjamas and onesies around in shops now, so if you don’t already have one you could get one of these. Alternatively, dressing up as a ghost, or a wipe monster as we like to call it here at We Love Wipes, is always a winner. Use a sheet and cut some holes for the eyes and smear some fake blood on it, and you are good to go. You can also use a white Snuggie if you have one for ultimate comfort.
