Halloween Goodie Bags


I shared this recipe {if it can even be called a 'recipe'} on Katie {Did} It last month and with it being so close to Halloween, I wanted to share it here to give you some ideas on Halloween treats for your kids and/or their classmates! 

I don't remember very many Halloweens with I was little. I have vague memories of being a cat one year and feeling like I was the most awesome cat in the world. I've seen pictures of me, dressed up as a ninja, and I remember that year I went around karate chopping every person and thing in sight. If I remember correctly, I even made one girl cry...whoops. I think my most vivid memory though, is helping my mom put together Halloween treats to take to my class. I already shared her infamous pumpkin sugar cookies, but this is another treat she was known for around my school as well. Behold the popcorn goodie bags:


They're just spooky enough to be classified as a Halloween treat, but any child will think they're the coolest idea ever. Like I said, I don't know if this can really be called a recipe since it's so simple, but I'm going to tell you anyway.

Ingredients:
  • 5 plastic gloves {I searched everywhere for these gloves and people kept leading me to latex and vinyl ones. You don't want those. Go to Subway and they'll give you a bunch of these for free.}
  • 25 candy corn pieces
  • 2 bags microwave popcorn, popped
  • 5 twisty ties

Directions:
  1. Open a glove and place one candy corn in each finger, with the tip pointing downward.
  2. Stuff your glove with popcorn, making sure to get all the nooks and crannies of the fingers.
  3. Tie off with a twisty tie and you're good to go!

Talk about easy and super cheap! Not to mention, your kids will love them. I hope you enjoy them as well! Happy Halloween, friends!
