YOU'VE got your costumes, carved a pumpkin and now it's time to celebrate Halloween with a bit of a party. Here are some devilish delights for the kids to enjoy after bobbing apples and playing Boo! CWTCH WITH RACHEL MAINWARING Do something different this weekend MARSHMALLOW GHOSTS: You will need: Cornflour for rolling 600g/1lb 5oz ready-to-roll icing 24 marshmallows Food colouring pens Method: Dust a board and rolling pin with cornflour and roll the icing out until it's the thickness of a pound coin. Cut into 11cm/4' inch rounds. Stack the marshmallows on top of each other in pairs and drape a round of icing over each stack to make a ghost. Draw a face on each with the food colouring pens.
SATAN'S CRUNCH: You will need: 125g plain flour 75g porridge oats 75g brown sugar 25g desiccated coconut 25g cocoa powder 150g margarine or butter 150g milk chocolate Cake sprinkles Method: Pre-heat oven to Gas Mark 4 / 350F / 180C. Mix the ingredients together (apart from butter, chocolate and sprinkles) in the mixing bowl. Melt the margarine in the saucepan, add it to the mixing bowl and mix well. Put the mixture into a baking tin (approx 18cm square), ensuring it is level and the surface is smooth. Bake for 20 mins. When cooked, remove and allow to cool. Melt the chocolate in the small bowl over simmering water and spread it over the crunch. Decorate the chocolate topping with sprinkles and then let it set.
ICE-CREAM SPIDERS You will need: Chocolate ice cream Black licorice sticks Raisins Method: Put a scoop of chocolate ice cream in the centre of a bowl. Poke eight pieces of black licorice along the side of the scoop to make the legs. Add two raisins for the eyes.

Line up the eyeballs on a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 400F (200C/gas 6) for 15 minutes.
