For years by sister and I has hosted Halloween parties for a group of friends. I love to cook for people so I tend to bake party snacks. Among those are these scary spider muffins. They are muffins with raisins, nuts and apples made to look like spiders by adding licorice strings as legs. They only take half an hour to make and they are yummy. I like the mix of soft and crunchy bits that the apples and nut bits provide.
Fastelavnsboller are traditional buns that are baked for Shrovetide/carnival or “fastelavn” as it is called in Danish. They are supposed to be the part of the big party before lend. Even though nobody upholds lend anymore these buns are widely available in stores and are baked and eaten in February. It is a soft bun filled with custard.
