These Halloween biscuit kits are the perfect activity for kids this spooky season

Or adults. Biscuits don’t discriminate.

If you’re looking for a creative activity that’s less messy than pumpkin carving with a far more delicious end result, these biscuit kits are the way to go.

They come from Irish small business Pompous Pantry, and the love and attention to detail that goes into each kit is insane.

PP bring out gorgeous themed kits for pretty much every holiday (don’t worry, the Christmas kit prep is most likely underway as we speak), and this Halloween they’ve gone for a spider theme for you to make at home. They’re not just fun to make, the end result is truly delicious (the legs are made with sweet blue liquorice and the icing is melted Belgian chocolate nibs, a serious touch of class). If, like me, you were obsessed with Get Set Chocolate Factory and other 90s sweet making kits, you’ll know that if a cake or cookie was fun to make, it probably didn’t taste particularly good. That’s not the case with these kits. No watery, flavourless coloured icing here, the chocolate biscuits and chocolate fudge icing are all homemade to the highest possible standards, and even the sprinkles seem boujier than the average. A gorgeous activity for families, to enjoy with your housemates, your partner or your pals. You can order a kit for yourself HERE.
