No Bake Halloween Spooky Slice

You don’t need any tricks to make this frightfully tasty no bake Halloween treat! 

I have to admit that Halloween is not my favourite holiday – I’m easily scared and extremely squeamish – but the older I get, the more I seem to enjoy the spook-tacular activites.

Anyhoo, it turns out that Teddy Roosevelt is quite a social animal and has a busier social calendar than his pawrents! Just like parents of hooman kids, we spend a lot of our weekends chaperoning Teddy around on the puppy pawty circuit.

He’s already been to one Halloween party and has another one coming up. He also has multiple Halloween outfits, not costumes, because like his pawrents, fancy dress is not his forte!

This year, Teddy’s not the only one who got invited to a Halloween party! We jumped at the chance for a bit of devillish dressing up when Lorraine AKA Not Quite Nigella invited us to her perilous picnic. The fangtastic food she produced really has to be seen to be believed and you can check it all out in this post.

Lorraine asked us to bring a plate. Of course, I left it to the last minute and of course, I had to bring something sweet and this no bake slice ticked all the boxes.

This slice is so easy, even the kids can make it and all you need is a handful of pantry staples. In fact, the trickiest thing about this treat is waiting for the slice to set!

If you haven’t got red writing icing, you can whip up and  drizzle some red glace icing. You don’t need any mad skills to decorate this slice, in fact the messier the red streaks are, the spookier it looks! 

There’s a range of lurid lollies you can use to decorate; I found some gummy mummies (Woolies) and some spooky mix (Kmart) but if all else fails, there’s always some squirmy worms! As you can see, the Spooky Mix really caught my eye!
