I have been craving fall this year with the hot summer that most of us have experienced. I can hardly wait to buy some mums and put up my Halloween and fall decorations. I have also been thinking about trick or treat of course. I love Halloween and seeing all the cute children dressed in their costumes. It's one of my favorite holidays.
This year I've been thinking of making some home made treats for the trick-or-treaters and putting them in personalized cake and candy bags. I love the idea of adding a homemade touch to the season. Popcorn balls are always a big hit as well as cut out cookies shaped as pumpkins, ghosts and fall leaves. Another fun treat would be rice krispie treats. Add a little orange or purple food coloring to the treats to jazz them up for Halloween. You can also cut the treats out of the pan with metal cookie cutters shaped for Halloween. Adding a personalized message to your treat bag such as; Trick or Treat, compliments of the Smiths or 414 Maple Street allows you to let the parents of the trick-or-treaters know where the homemade goodies came from. I know as a mom you have to be careful when checking your children’s Halloween candy.
Of course the personalized bags will work great for any kind of treat whether they are homemade of store bought. It is a creative way to add some fun to your Halloween season. Place a handful of small treats into the bags and tie a piece of raffia or ribbon around the top. This kind of special touch will make you the talk to of the neighborhood.
Have a spook-tacular fall!
