I look around every Halloween and am amazed at the effort everyone puts into their costumes, but one thing that’s always bothered me is the lack of terrifying food – and I’m not talking about vegetables HAHA!

So, I smashed some pastry around my Peperami Original, gave them some peepers and made some right scary Meaty Mummies – delicious with ketchup or mustard, they pack a porky punch for any trick or treaters.

 

Ingredients –
4 x 22.5g Original Peperami
60g ready rolled shortcrust pastry, cut into 1cm thick strips
½ beaten egg
4 pea size pieces white fondant icing
4 rice grain pieces black fondant icing
3 tbsp mild mustard
1 tbsp tomato ketchup

Method –
1. Preheat the oven to 200C, fan 180C, gas mark 6.
2. Wrap the pastry around the Peperami then brush the pastry with the beaten egg.
3. Place on a tray in the oven for 12 minutes until golden brown and hot through.
4. Roll the white icing into 8 oval balls.
5. Roll the black icing into 8 tiny balls and gently press onto the middle of the white balls.
6. Brush the back of the “eye” with a tiny bit of egg and stick onto the Peperami.
7. Mix the mustard and tomato ketchup together and serve as a dip.
