Tonight was movie night with the kids which included our all time favorite Halloween treat. One night when the girls were little I grabbed a few snacks I had on hand in our pantry and tossed them together and ta-da! Just like that our family’s favorite Easy Halloween Treat was born.
What makes it a “Halloween” treat? It’s in a jack-o-lantern bowl of course.
Plus it includes candy corns. Candy corns, like a jack-o-lantern bowl, signal Halloween. Additional items include: popcorn, pretzels, fishy crackers, and m&m’s.
It’s funny to me that this simple combination is such a hit with my kids. Part of the reason is because they only get this treat a couple of times in October which adds to the magic and makes it seem extra special. Some squeals may have been heard down the street when I whipped this up tonight. Took me a whole 5 minutes.
No cooking involved + squealing excited kids? My kind of treat.
Thought you might want to whip it up this week at your house too.
You can tell your kids I said “you’re welcome.”
And Happy Halloween.
