Halloween Coffin Dip recipe

halloween themed food

Morticia Addams here, I don't often eat much as I have to slip into a slinky black dress every day but this healthy Halloween Coffin dip is just the ticket if you are wanting a healthy dip. Pugsley doesn't like to eat it unless I tell him that it isn't in fact peas, but slime. And I think this little skeleton was the belle of the ball. He looks like he is having a great time but wouldn't you if you had escaped your coffin?

Step 1 - In a saucepan, simmer the peas until cooked through and drain the water. Add to a food processor with the cheese, chilli flakes, oil and herbs. Whizz until smooth-you can leave this slightly chunky or make it a smooth puree.

Step 2 - Take your loaf of bread and cut it into a coffin shape tapering the sides. Cut off a slice from the top which is the coffin lid. Then hollow out the centre but keeping the inside to make croutons or something to scoop the dip out with. Fill with the dip and serve-you can also write RIP on the top and add a little skeleton.
