Freaky Faces

Freaky faces

Let the kids be as creative as they like conjuring these Freaky Faces cracker ghouls out of veg, cheese and houmous. You can also mix up the toppings, using both fresh and tinned ingredients.


  • 1 (300g) pack oat cakes, rice cakes or crackers
  • 1 (300g) tub houmous
  • 1 (200g) tub guacamole
  • 1 (160g) pack cheese slices
  • 1 (340g) jar of pitted black olives
  • 1 (200g) pack radishes
  • 1 (195g) tin sweetcorn
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 (150g) pack of sugar snap peas
  • 85g tub peeled edamame soybeans
  • 2 carrots
  • ¼ cucumber
  • 1 (200g) pack baby corn
  • 1 (100g) pack pumpkin seeds


  1. Spread oat cakes or crackers with houmous and guacamole.
  2. For eyes, use a small bottle top to cut circles from cheese slices; and make pupils from pieces of black olive or radish (you can use the end of a metal straw to cut them out) or peas.
  3. Make mouths from odds and ends, such as sweetcorn kernels and trimmed pepper – create toothy grins with sugar snaps opened to reveal their peas.
  4. Edamame beans make good noses.
  5. Add finishing touches – pointy ears, eyebrows, horns and hair – using sugar snaps, chopped pepper, radish, carrot, cucumber, baby corn and pumpkin seeds. Best eaten the same day.
