Recipe: Spooky Halloween eyeball tarts

A really easy Halloween recipe for delicious (and actually rather healthy) fruit tarts with a spooky twist.

Ingredients (makes 12):

  • 250g jarred balled pears or lychees
  • 1 tube of Smarties or similar colourful chocolate circles
  • 1 food-safe black cake decorating pen
  • 200g raspberries
  • Sugar to taste
  • 12 small cooked pie cakes or flan bases

Method:

  1. Using the food pen, draw black pupils on the Smarties. These will be the irises.
  2. With a knife or (if your kids are helping) spoon, gouge a Smartie-sized hole in the top of each pear ball/lychee
  3. Push the raspberries through a sieve to extract the juice. Add sugar (and a little of the pear or lychee juice) to taste.
  4. Put the pear balls/lychees in the pie cases
  5. Put one Smartie in each to make eyeballs
  6. Spoon the raspberry coulis into the space between the eyeballs.
  7. Enjoy!
