Trick or treat? Here are some spine-tingling recipes for this Halloween!

Healthy Halloween-themed snacks

At World Cancer Research Fund, we’re getting into the Halloween spirit by pulling out the face paint, fangs, claws, cat’s tails and skeleton bones. But as trick or treating seems almost impossible in parts of the UK this year, we thought we would bring the thrill of all hallows’ eve to your door! This year we’ve come up with the spook-tacular idea of sharing scary Halloween recipe videos that our staff have created alongside their families.

While we all associate Halloween with candy and sweet treats, why not mix it up and make some hideously delicious snacks that everyone will enjoy. From ghosts to ghouls, werewolves and even a cat or two, we have plenty of characters to keep you entertained – all while helping you satisfy any tummy rumbles!

Please subscribe to our YouTube channel to watch the first video, and then if you ‘turn on post notifications’ you will be notified over the next five days of all the scary videos we have planned.

Things are about to get very spooky in here, so let’s watch the first video:
