If you're procrastinating like me, here are two ideas for Halloween snacks you can throw together in no time! The boys and I just made these two treats below and they're super easy and a big hit!
Halloween Trail Mix
Nuts- I used peanuts & almonds (omit if there are nut allergies)
Add any combination of the ingredients above (or be creative and add your favorites) to a large Ziploc bag. Toss the bag around until it's mixed up well. Pour it all into a festive bowl. If you're going to a party, buy a cheap bowl so you can leave it all with your host.
Hershey Kiss Pretzel Bites
A bag of Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kisses
A bag of waffle pretzels
Warm your oven to 200 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and arrange waffle pretzels in rows to cover the sheet. Unwrap your Pumpkin Spice Kisses and place one on top of each of the waffle pretzels. Place the sheet in the over for about five minutes. You want the kisses very soft but not completed melted. Then place another waffle pretzel on top of each kiss, pressing down a bit and essentially creating a sandwich. Place the sheet in the fridge for a bout a half hour (you don't want it in there too long..just enough to harden them). Then place them all in a festive bowl and you're ready to go. Who can resist the salty & sweet combo? If you're going to a party, buy a cheap festive bowl that you can leave at the party.
Both of these are great ones for the kids to help with- they're both fool proof and fun! Not all that healthy, but festive and delicious. Good news is that by changing up the candy you can to match the holiday/season, you can make these anytime!
Have fun and enjoy! Happy Halloween!!
