Halloween snacks for school

So yesterday I shared the first of two fun ideas that my kids will be sharing at school tomorrow with their friends – Halloween glow sticks. Today I’ll share the second. This year at the dollar store I found some amazing spooky beverage stickers. I picked up several packs of them and have been using them to decorate everything from yogurt drinks, fruit cups, beverages, and now this Halloween treat.

I made 50 of these little baggies – 25 for each of the kid’s classes.

What You’ll Need

50 small zipper baggies – also found at the dollar store in the craft section
dollar store beverage stickers – there are 16 in a package
2 big bags of cheese puffs
2 big bags of popcorn

Just peel the sticker and stick it to the front of a baggie. I used the jack o’lantern looking stickers for the cheesie bags and the ghost and skeleton stickers with the popcorn bags. They were so fun to make – even the kids helped!

halloween hot chocolate

hotchocolate1

Have you ever tried hot chocolate made with nutella?? Once you try it, you will never want to go back to regular hot chocolate. I promise. It is rich, creamy, and full of chocolate hazelnut goodness. The weather is cool – it’s going to be near freezing weather for our trick-or-treating night – and this will be the perfect drink to heat up my kiddos when they return home on Halloween night.

What You’ll Need

1/3 cup of Nutella
1 1/2 cups of Milk
Halloween Peep Marshmallows
