Boo-nanas and marvellous mummies:
Slice bananas lengthways, then cut each half into three. Spear each section on a lolly stick and place on a tray lined with greaseproof paper. Freeze for 30 minutes. Remove from the freezer, dip the banana lollies into yoghurt, and add two eyes using black icing. Add a drizzle of toffee sauce to a few of the bananas to create mummy bandages. Place in the freezer until set.
Jack-o’-lantern houmous pots:
Remove the top of a pepper and deseed. Carefully carve a jack-o’-lantern face into the side of the pepper, then fill with M&S piri-piri houmous. Serve with fresh veggie crudités.
Unroll puff pastry and add a layer of M&S Marmite® cream cheese. Cut into long strips and twist. Brush with egg, sprinkle over some sesame seeds and add sunflower seeds for eyes. Bake until golden and add a small piece of pepper to create a tongue.
Cut apples into quarters and remove the core. Remove a small section of the middle of each quarter to create a mouth. Fill the gap with M&S crunchy peanut butter with maple and pecan. Add sunflower seeds for the teeth, a slice of strawberry for the tongue, and icing eyes.
