A cute bat treat bag filled with sweet-salty Halloween crunch is the perfect spooky snack
Fall is a fun time to begin handing out gifts to friends at school and families around the neighborhood, and today's spooky snack is perfect for any Halloween lover!
Halloween crunch has a perfect blend of salty and sweet, and the DIY bat treat bag will put a smile on anyone's face. It's easy to make and super fun to eat. In fact, it's so easy that it doesn't even require any cooking!
Ingredients for Halloween crunch:
Rice Chex cereal
1 bag of microwave popcorn
Melting chocolate (or chocolate candy melts)
Halloween-colored candies (like Reese's Pieces)
Nonstick cooking spray
Directions for Halloween crunch:
Place foil on your baking sheet.
Apply a thin layer of nonstick spray to the foil.
Arrange a layer of Chex cereal (as pictured above). The amount of Chex cereal you need depends on the size of your cookie sheet.
Add a layer of popcorn over the Chex cereal (as seen above).
Add about 1 cup of Halloween-colored candies to the Chex and popcorn.
Melt about 1/2 cup of chocolate and drizzle it over the Chex and popcorn.
Before the chocolate dries, place the eyeball sprinkles on top of the chocolate.
Add the black sprinkles over the entire cookie sheet.
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.
Add the Halloween crunch to the DIY bat treat bags!
