Halloween Treats at Aldi

With Halloween coming up, it's great to start getting it organised. I was sent a range of products that are sold in Aldi for upcoming Halloween. We received:

  • Face Painting Set
  • Scary Chocolate Apple Making Set
  • A Scary Window Sticker

Spooky Face Crayons - £1.99 per set
Although Thomas is too young to sit and have his face painted properly as he gets bored and wonders off, we had fun drawing on each others faces, even if we just looked silly, we had a great time doing it. Thomas used every one to make daddy look like a rainbow of colour and had fun doing his own too. I tried doing my own white eyed, bloodied mouth style but must admit I'm no artist and it didn't go quite to plan but we looked good!

Window Sticker - £1.59 each
We got a terrifying mummy design. It was easy to place onto the window and easy to remove also. It left no marks and was very clear, inside and out. There are 16 assorted designs so you could spook up the whole house.

Chocolate Apple Decorating Kit - £1.99
Thomas loved the idea of making chocolate monsters and they are very simple to do. All you need is the pack and 4 apples. It comes with 4 sticks (for the handles), chocolate, black and white sprinkles and sugar paper faces.

  1. Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl in the microwave for about 25 seconds (you may need to add 10 seconds if it's not fully melted).
  2. Place the apples onto the sticks and then dip them into the melted chocolate. Move them about making sure they are fully covered.
  3. As soon as the chocolate is on, quickly dip them into the sprinkles and then places the faces onto each one.
That's it! Leave for a few minutes for the chocolate to set and they are ready to eat. We enjoyed making these and they were very yummy indeed.

  1. Love this post. I was in Aldi the other day and soon picked up the Chocolate Apple Kits. They look really tasty so I might get some to make! I love chocolate apples :)
