Simple Halloween Treats

Some delicious Halloween treats that are super simple to put together and great for Halloween get-togethers, or spooky family fun

Jalapeño Jelly Bone

  • 1 8oz block of cream cheese
  • New Canaan Farms Jalapeño Jelly, to taste

A block of cream cheese, with the sides cut off to start to build a bone shape

Cut the cheese into a bone shape, by slicing long triangle shapes off the sides, then moulding the cut cheese into both ends, to create a rounded bone shape. Spoon over the Jalapeño Jelly to taste and enjoy with crackers of your choice, family and friends

  • Preheat the oven to 350°. Line a baking tray with parchment paper
  • Spread the jam on top of the whole brie and bake in the oven for 20 minutes

  • ½ cup New Canaan Farms East Texas Blueberry Jam
  • Edible candy eyes

Perfect for little hands, this is a treat that children love to make on their own with some adult supervision. Just make sure that the pastry is rolled nice and thin, and those little hands don’t go near the hot jam until it’s properly cooled!

  • Preheat the oven to 350° and lightly oil a small muffin tin
  • Roll out the pastry and cut out circles to fit. I like the flower-edged cutters for more visual interest, but anything works!
  • Place your circles in the muffin holes, placing down gently to fit, and fill about 3/4 full with jam, leaving some space at the top to avoid the hot jam running over (we filled a little too full, as you will see from our results!)
  • Bake in the oven for around 15 minutes, until the jam is bubbly and the pastry a light golden brown
  • Remove and leave to cool for a while in the pan, before gently levering out onto a cooling rack
  • When the jam is cool and has re-set, place as many eyes as you like in the tarts, and serve for a yummy, child-friendly creepy treat

Refund Policy

We pride ourselves on the quality of our products and stand by every product we ship to our customers. Please contact us for any product or shipment

We do not accept returns of product we have shipped. However, we have a limited 15-day refund policy, which means you have 15 days after receiving your item to request a refund or exchange if the product we shipped to you is defective, damaged or not what was ordered. Please note that refund requests will need to include a description of the defective product with photos.

We will notify you once we’ve received your refund request and let you know if the refund was approved or not. If approved, you’ll be refunded on your original payment method within 10 business days. Please remember it can take some time for your bank or credit card company to process and post the refund too.

Shipping & Refunds

For orders over $60, we offer free ground shipping to a single delivery physical address in the contiguous United States (shipping to PO Boxes incurs a $5 surcharge). For all shipping, we use the best solution available for your address, and get your order out as fast as we can. We will never take longer than 3 business days to process your order and prepare it for shipment, and if you pay the premium for overnight shipment we strive (but do not guarantee) to prepare it and put it in the carrier’s hands within 24 hours. Very occasionally, we may experience delays due to supply chain constraints or other forces beyond our control. If we are not able to ship your order within five days of receipt, we will contact you to explain the timeline and offer you a refund if you prefer. Unfortunately, we are unable to hold individual orders for future ship dates.

We also provide the ability to break your order into multiple shipments and enter individual shipping addresses for those.  Please note that the free shipping offer applies to each individual address, so you would need to spend more than the minimum in each separate shipment to qualify for free shipping.

If you have any questions or concerns about your order, a shipment, or a refund, we encourage you to call or email so we can handle it personally for you!
