Spiderman is a favourite theme for kids parties due to the number of movies and comic books based on this famous webbed superhero. As you plan your food for your Spiderman party, keep in mind that incorporating this superhero theme as much as possible will add to the excitement of the party. There are many food ideas to choose from for your Spiderman fans.
For a snack, make chocolate "spiders" that are easy and delicious. You only need chow mein noodles and a bag of chocolate chips. Melt chocolate chips on low heat over the stove or in the microwave. Add the chow mein noodles and gently stir them through the chocolate. Scoop out hunks of the mixture onto waxed paper and allow to cool or refrigerate for faster results. When finished, you have a sweet treat that looks like chocolate covered spiders.
Make a "bloody" punch for the guests to drink. This is simple to make and also economical. Buy two, 1,360ml. cans of red fruit juice, a six-ounce can of frozen orange juice concentrate and two 2-liter bottles of ginger ale. Mix all three together in a large punch bowl, add ice and it is ready to serve.
Make "spider hot dogs: that your guests will love to eat. Purchase enough hot dogs that will equal two to three per guest-- they will be eating more because you do not use buns for these. You will also need a few boxes of uncooked spaghetti noodles. Ensure that the hot dogs are refrigerated--not frozen--and cut all of them in half or in quarters. Break the spaghetti noodles in half and insert roughly six to eight pieces into each side of the hot dog. Place in boiling water for approximately six minutes--you will know they are done when the hot dogs are plump and the spaghetti noodles are soft and cooked into the meat. Drain the water out and you are done. The hot dogs will appear as if they have spider legs draping from their sides.
To top off your Spiderman menu, serve web-themed cupcakes for dessert. Buy white cake mix and white icing. Mix red food colouring into the icing and continue to add the colouring until the icing becomes a deep shade of red. After you bake the cupcakes, allow them to cool and apply the icing. When finished, use thin strings of black liquorice and form a little web design on each one.
