You might remember I talked about our annual Great Pumpkin showing when I shared the orange slice candy pumpkin a few weeks ago? This week, we watched Hocus Pocus. Anyone else remember that one?
I wanted to make a popcorn treat for our screening and decided to go with a popcorn candy mix. Ghostly grub anyone?
Halloween Popcorn Treat
Unflavored popcorn – I like to make my own homemade microwave popcorn. It’s tons cheaper.
Candy corn M&Ms (you could use regular M&Ms or Reeses Pieces)
Candy bats – I picked these up off the cake decorating isle in the craft store.
White chocolate candy melts
Spread popcorn out on a cookie sheet. Add candy.
Melt white chocolate in the microwave on 50 percent power for 1 min. Stir. If the chocolate still needs to be melted, microwave it on 50 percent power for another 30 sec.
Cover popcorn and candy with white chocolate candy melts. I like to put the melted chocolate in a frosting bag so that it’s distributed evenly over the popcorn and candy, but you could really just spoon it over the top.
Super-easy Halloween treat complete!
Halloween Popcorn Treat Packaging
And since I believe food always taste better if it looks good I added some ghostly packaging.
I packaged the popcorn treat in little translucent ghost boxes with eyes for the kids. Wouldn’t it be fun to let the kids make their own with some googley eyes?
I love how the darker pieces sort of look like the ghost’s mouth!
And, wouldn’t this fun treat be great to leave on your neighbor’s door steps as part of a neighborhood Halloween boo? I made some bigger bags of it as well…
Speaking of booing, here are a few of my favorite “you’ve been booed” printables.
You’ve Been Booed Halloween Sign
This Halloween boo tag, from Ander’s Ruff, caught my eye last year. So classy!
This darling Halloween boo sign, from Kim at the TomKat Studio, is perfect for a little family doorbell ditching…It also just happens to be the one that showed up on my door a few days ago!
There’s another cute Halloween boo printable over at Mom’s Crafty Space…
Have you been booed? It’s such good fun and one of my favorite Halloween traditions.
