**This post contains gifted items**

It’s that time of year again and with Halloween lurking around the corner it seemed only fitting to share some fun food recipe ideas perfect for any spooky party. Now I don’t need to tell you that 2020’s festivities are going to be somewhat different from what we are all used to, but that doesn’t mean cancelling the whole thing. Like many there will be no Trick of Treating or parties with friends for us this year, instead we are going to create our own fun at home with games, dressing up and of course food!

A food synonymous with Halloween for us are hot dogs, simple, yummy and ideal for parties; especially when there are a lot of hungry kids to feed! With this in mind Ye Olde Oak got in touch and challenged us to use their family favourite hot dogs to create our own spooky food treats. Ye Olde Oak is a brand which I have have grown up with and a firm favourite with the kids too, so accepting this challenge was a no brainier. So today I’m sharing four easy to make Halloween hot dog recipes that kids will love helping to make!
