Our Ultimate Halloween Recipes

With Halloween around the corner, we’ve unearthed our best black and orange recipes from our broom closet. Witch’s brew, a haunting potion, Frankenballs, spider legs; check out our selection that’ll surely give you goosebumps!

1. Squid Ink Noodle Soup

This blackish brew isn’t witchcraft—it’s coloured by cuttlefish or squid ink (or, if you’re having trouble conjuring either of those ingredients, black food colouring). Trick out your utensils by twisting udon noodles around your chopsticks to create edible mummies. 

2. Pineapple, Carrot and Apple Juice

Pineapple, carrot and apple make a bewitchingly colourful brew that packs an eerie amount of antioxidants—perfect for little warlocks and grown-up goblins.

3. Sweet Potato Fingers

These crowd-pleasers will put a spell on you thanks to a sweet (sugar and cinnamon) and savoury (cayenne and chili powder) kick. And the one-bowl recipe is so easy it’s practically magic.

4. Spicy Meatballs with Cheese Sauce

It’s monstrous how much flavour is packed into each one of these caramelized meatballs. And because we’re suckers for everything cheesy, we prefer ours with giant oozings of deep-orange cheddar.

5. Beet, Carrot and Black Bean Salad

We’re digging these thinly sliced beets and ribbons of carrots—a gruesome task to complete without a mandoline. And the frighteningly quick dressing based in honey and spiked with lime is one we’d take to the grave.

6. Chocolate-Dipped Candied Orange Peel

Encourage creepy-crawlies of the five-fingered variety by arranging these chocolate-dipped candied orange peels in a tangled web. (You may get caught in your own, however, when you discover there aren’t any leftovers at the end of the night.) 

7. Lemon Panna Cotta with Orange Juice Mousse

Sadly, there’s no antidote for this potion: a mad scientist experiment that combines lemon panna cotta with an orange juice mousse that’ll have your guests asking you to make it again, and again, and again.
