These spooky Halloween appetizers probably won’t scare your guests away, but they might be shocked by the cuteness.

What you need

Instructions

Instructions for the Pumpkin Crostini:

1. Slice the crostini.

2. Top the crostini with cream cheese.

3. Shape the pumpkin out of red cheddar slices using a heart-shaped cookie cutter first, then trim with a glass to get the rounded base (I used a Pac-Man cookie cutter).

4. Peel some cucumber for the stem.

5. If you want to add some dimension to the pumpkin, as I have done, then you can shape a piece of cheddar for the middle section and two pieces to the side.

6. Place the pumpkin on top of the crostini and add some candy eyes.

Instructions for the Mummy Crostini:

1. Slice the crostini.

2. Top the crostini with cream cheese.

3. Slice a piece of cucumber about as wide as the bread you are using.

4. Peel the cucumber and then cut long rectangular pieces.

5. Slice these pieces into long strips.

6. Place two candy eyes on the top of the crostini and then the cucumber strips. 

Instructions for the Spiderweb Crostini:

1. Slice the crostini.

2. Top the crostini with cream cheese.

3. Squeeze some balsamic glaze into a piping utensil or bag.

4. Pipe three circles onto the bread, one bigger than the next.

5. Drag a toothpick from the center to the edge of the bread to create the web details. I did this eight times.

Arrange all the crostini on a platter and top with plastic spiders.
