Halloween Party Food: Super Cool Snail Sandwiches

Snail Sandwiches for halloween

A fantastically fun way to get kids to eat their sandwiches.



Ingredients (makes about 28 snail sandwiches):

4 medium sized tortilla wraps

28 Small gherkins


Salami (or another choice of filling)

Lettuce (or another choice of filling)




Lay your tortilla wrap flat on a work surface. Cut off the rounded ends of the wrap to make it square. Spread a thin layer of margarine over the wrap, then put on some lettuce and salami. (you can use any filling instead of lettuce and salami so long as it’s colourful and not too fiddly, like jam, cream cheese and salmon, ham, etc…)

Next, roll up the tortilla wrap nice and tight. Then cut the roll into about 7 or more slices.

Place each roll onto a plate so it is standing up.

Next take your gherkins and slice off the end of each one at an angle. Pierce 2 holes into the top of the uncut end and insert the chives for the antennas. (you could tie a knot at the end of each chive to create the effect of the eyes if you want)

Next, slot the gherkin snail body just underneath each roll. The sliced end should fit snugly into each roll.


You can use white bread instead of tortilla wraps for this. Just take the crusts off and then use a rolling pin to flatten the bread out a bit before starting.

Froggle Crazy Egg Faces

Frogg;e's Crazy Egg faces

Here at Froggle Parties, we love kids party food ideas!!  These sandwich faces are heaps of fun and have huge amounts of character. They’re great for parties and you might even like to get the kids to help you make them.

You could make it an activity at your party where the kids make their own froggle faced sandwich.  Simply lay out a table with lots of ready prepared ingredients and get the kids to make their own faces with them. You could give a prize to some of the best face designs.

Ingredients (makes 4 egg faces):

4 slices of brown or white bread

7 medium eggs

4 tbsp mayonaise

Salt and pepper

Heat some water in a large sized saucepan and put your eggs into a saucepan once the water has started to boil. Boil the eggs for 8 minutes. The egg yolk should be solid. You can always take one egg out first and check that it’s cooked before taking the rest of them out of the saucepan. Once cooked, peel the eggs. Take 2 of the eggs and slice them up (you should get atleast 4 decent slices per egg which will be used as eyes). Set the egg slices to one side.

Put the rest of the eggs and any left over cuttings into a mixing bowl and add the mayonanaise. Mix it all up with a fork and use the fork to mash the egg up as you mix it with the mayonannise.

Simply spread on the egg mayonnaise mix and then use the toppings to make the faces.

If you want, instead of egg mayonnaise you could use peanut butter or jam, which saves a bit of time.

Topping ides: gherkins, carrot sticks, grated carrot, peas, olives, tomatoes peppers, celery sticks, salami, cucumber, chives, basil…

Childrens Party Food ideas: Chessboard Sandwich

Childrens party food ideas - Childrens Parties

Children's Party Food Ideas - Chessboard Sandwich

Ingredients (makes 40 mini sandwiches to serve about 15 kids):


Medium sliced white and brown bread (10 slices of each)

Your choice of sandwich filling

Cherry tomatoes and olives



Decide on your filling and fill the sandwiches accordingly.

Simple fillings are best: Ham and cucumber, cream cheese, jam, peanut butter, cheese and tomatoe or tuna mayonnaise are good ideas.

Do keep all your fillings the same though so that the height of the sandwiches are even when you come to laying them out on the plate to make the chess board.

Once you have made the sandwiches, slice off the crusts with a serated knife.

Then cut your crust less sandwiches into 4 squares.

Find a large, flat serving plate to put the sandwiches on and lay out the sandwiches to form a chess/ checkers board pattern, alternating between white and brown.

Then place the tomatoes and olives o ntop. You could use grapes instead if you like or those cheese ball crisps.

Childrens Party Food Ideas: Sandwich Boats

Childrens' party Food ideas: Sandwich Boats

Ingredients: (makes 40 mini sandwiches. Serves about 15 kids):

White or brown bread (20 slices)

Your choice of sandwich filling

1 large whole cucumber

40 Cocktail sticks

20 Cherry tomatoes

20 medium slices of Salami or 10 large slices cut in half

Decide on your filling and fill the sandwiches accordingly. Simple fillings are best. Ham and cucumber, cheese and tomatoe or tuna mayonnaise are good ideas.

Once you have made the sandwiches, slice off the crusts.

Then cut each sandwiches into 4 triangles. Cut the cherry tomatoes in half. Next place one on the top of each sandwich triangle so the flat side is facing down.

Now make the sails for your boats. Slice the cucumber into long strips by cutting it at an angle and then skewer the ends of each slice onto a cocktail stick. Attach the cocktail stick by sticking it into the cherry tomatoe.

Do the same with the salami sails. If the slices of salami are big you can halve them or you can use slightly smaller slices. Either way works fine.

Next place on a serving platter and you’re ready to go.

You might also like to try using thin cheese slices to make the sails as well.
