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.

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.
