Guess what Target has at the Dollar Spot? Cute little treat cups in fall colors (ten for $1!). I know, I should seek help for this compulsion to stalk the aisles there. But first, let me show you what I used some orange treat cups to make!
I also found these great kraft paper tags at the Dollar Spot. I just used a couple of stickers and my trusty white gel pen to spiff it up a bit and some Halloween-ish ribbon and bakers’ twine. I wrapped the treat cup in some printed packing tape (from Michael’s Dollar Spot last year), and threw together (literally) some Halloween Party Mix, using ingredients I already had on hand.
The party mix includes candy corn, peanuts, multi-grain Cheerios, and popcorn, if I have some. It’s a tasty combo, reminiscent of Payday candy bars. If you’re not having a party, feel free to call it Trail Mix and feel virtuous about taking it along on a hike…sugar provides quick energy, and nuts and whole grains are super good for you!
We made these little treat cups (they hold a little more than a cup of mix) for the bus driver and neighbors…they come together quickly, and are a perfect after school snack.
Now I think I need to go see if there’s anything new at Target…..
