It's such fun to surprise someone with a themed package, so now that I have a nephew who is away at university I thought it would be fun to create a Halloween-themed package to send to him.
First place to start was with some baking: meringue bones and almond shortbread witches' fingers.
Then a selection of Halloween candies: salt-water taffy pumpkin faces and ghostly chocolates.
Added in a black cherry-flavoured skull lollipop...
and an elegant mask, a tiny pumpkin that can be turned into a Jack o'lantern by drawing on a face with black marker, salt-water taffy treats and candy sticks in Halloween colours.
Mustn't forget a pair of bloody eyeballs.
Those witches' fingers really are creepy...
