Halloween is fast approaching, so it’s time to get your sweet trees ready! Halloween comes around every year on 31st October and it’s a great excuse to enjoy some extra chocolate treats. But, it’s not all about chocolate. No, no, no. If you want your Halloween to be memorable, we’ve listed everything you need to have a Halloween party that’s so good it’s scary!
One of the most popular Halloween games is apple bobbing. This classic tradition is great fun and enjoyed by children and adults every year. However, why not put a chocolatey twist on this year’s celebrations with our deliciously tempting red or green chocolate apples? They would make a great prize for the winner of the game and they look absolutely-fantastic!
Fully edible, our chocolate apple is made with an orange centre but disguised to look like red or green apples – so they technically count as one of your five-a-day! Covered in a vibrant red or blue Belgian chocolate source and attached to a delicious edible plaque, these chocolate apples would be a fun addition to your Halloween party!
Trick or Treat
Discover the secret in the witch’s hat with our twist on a Halloween treat. Fully edible, The Witch’s Hat is a Terry’s chocolate covered in orange Belgian chocolate. Sat on a ‘Happy Halloween’ plaque, The Witch’s Hat holds a real secret! Break the hat off and discover the multi-coloured chocolate beans as they tumble out – just don’t forget to catch them! Is it a trick or a treat? Try the Witch’s Hat and find out for yourself!

Scare Yourself Silly with a Scary Movie
Scary movies are a must on Halloween and really help you get into the spirit of things. Choose your favourite scary movies and host a screening party where you show classics like The Exorcist, The Sixth Sense, and Nightmare on Elm Street! And what makes a scary movie night perfect? A selection of great snacks! After all, crunching on some popcorn or satisfying your sweet tooth with a chocolate box can be a great comfort during a frightening film!
Carve a Spooky Pumpkin
It’s not Halloween until you’ve carved your own pumpkin and there are so many spooky, silly, or scary options! Pumpkins are sold everywhere throughout October, in preparation for Halloween, and you can find them in most supermarket stores. You can cut shapes, faces, or even phrases into your pumpkin, before placing a candle inside and creating an eerie, glowing light. Place these around your home to scare away unwanted guests or to add to your Halloween décor.
Go on a Ghost Tour
Ghost tours are all the rage around Halloween and are great fun to enjoy with friends for a good scare late in the evening! There are plenty of ghost tours around Brighton and there may even be tours in your neighbourhood that take you around the most haunted areas or let you inside long-abandoned properties for a look around. Ghost tours are a must on Halloween and can really get your adrenaline pumping!
Dress Up as Your Favourite Character
One of the main reasons Halloween is so popular is because of the opportunity it offers to dress up! However, as Mean Girls taught us all those years ago, you don’t have to dress up scary just because it’s Halloween. This time of year is also a fantastic opportunity to dress as one of your favourite TV, book, or film characters for a fun day spent in someone else’s shoes.
You can host dress-up parties with a theme, head out on the town for a night of spooky activities or enjoy trick or treating with your neighbours. However you decide to celebrate Halloween, you need to find a good costume to make the day even more fun!
