Directions for Halloween crunch:

  1. Place foil on your baking sheet.
  2. Apply a thin layer of nonstick spray to the foil.
  3. Arrange a layer of Chex cereal (as pictured above). The amount of Chex cereal you need depends on the size of your cookie sheet.
  4. Add a layer of popcorn over the Chex cereal (as seen above).
  5. Add about 1 cup of Halloween-colored candies to the Chex and popcorn.
  6. Melt about 1/2 cup of chocolate and drizzle it over the Chex and popcorn.
  7. Before the chocolate dries, place the eyeball sprinkles on top of the chocolate.
  8. Add the black sprinkles over the entire cookie sheet.
  9. The chocolate will eventually dry and keep the Chex, popcorn, candies and sprinkles together. You can place the cookie sheet in the refrigerator to make the chocolate harden more quickly. Once the chocolate is dry, use a spatula (or kids love to do this with their hands) and gently break the Halloween crunch into bite-sized pieces.
  10. Add the Halloween crunch to the DIY bat treat bags!

Materials needed for the DIY bat treat bags:

Directions:

  1. Trace the bat wing template onto black card stock.
  2. Add some sprinkles to the very bottom of the bag along with a few Halloween candies.
  3. Add a scoop or two of the Halloween crunch to the treat bag.
  4. Cut the top of the bag to size, fold over the top edge and staple the treat bag shut.
  5. Hot glue or staple the black bat wings to the top of the treat bag and hand them out this October!
