Cute and Creepy Halloween Treats {and a free printable!}

A few nights ago as I was drifting off to sleep… dreaming of future blog posts.. an idea hit me!  Everyone once in a while I impress myself  =)  I thought of a cute, creepy and funny kids snack perfect for Halloween treat bags.  And here it is….

Wait… you don’t think red candies, pretzels and marshmallows are fun and creepy?

How about now….

Cute right??  Now I should apologize a bit here… I know you’re used to me posting pretty, elegant, lady-like treats, but I’ve got to let my hair down every now and then! =)  And I can pretty much guarantee that you will never again see the word “poop” in any of my blog posts!

But I’ll have to tell you, as I was making us these little treat bags, my 7 and 4 year old sweet little girls were cracking up, asking for “more spider legs please..” and “can I have 3 more rat eyes”.

I created a special (free!) printable bag topper just for these cute and creepy treats.

Simply follow the link below to get your…

Printable Creepy Halloween Treat Bag Topper

I would recommend printing them onto white cardstock, then use a paper trimmer to cut them.  The finished size of each topper will be 4″ wide and 3″ tall.  Fold them in half (lenghtwise), then use double sided tape to attach them to the bags.  Before I added the tags I folded the bag over a couple times and stapled it closed.

To make these Halloween treat bags you’ll need…

Red candies (I used sixlets)

Pretzel Sticks

Mini Marshmallows

Small clear treat bags

Printable topper (link above)

Gray twine (optional)  I used twine from The Twinery, in stone.

I’ve posted a cute Halloween packaging idea in the the past, if you’re looking for something a little less gross.

Happy Snacking!

    At a kindergarten halloween party, a parent made a "witches brew"…adding candy (called by a different name) into a cauldron. The parent used the three you mentioned along with candy corn: witches teeth, gummy worm: worms, etc. Then mixed the brew and divided it into bags for the kids to take home…very cute.

    I so love reading your blog – and I guess I don't usally respond, but believe me, I always 'awwwwww' – but I have to say these are too cute, and I'm going to gather it all for my grandchildren to put together, I think they will have great fun. Thanks for letting your hair down for a good giggle. Judith

    @Molly Morris- There are lots of sites that sell them on-line, but I found these at my local Party City.

    Patricia C — September 19, 2011 at 1:00 pm

    Absolutely love it. The ghost poop is hysterical. My grandsons are going to love this. Though I think I am going to dip the pretzel sticks in chocolate to make them more spidery.

    alex — September 6, 2012 at 1:31 am

    is it possible to post the printable to another download site besides scrib? There pricing is a bit out of my price range.

    • Glory replied: — September 6th, 2012 @ 3:15 am

      Alex- There should be no charge at all. Simply follow the link (from this post to the printable), then on the right hand side click on “Download or Print”, then when a box pops up, click “download”, then another little box will pop up asking if you want to “save or open”. Just click “open” and the PDF file will open and you can print from there. Give it a try and let me know if you have any trouble. It should all be free.

    So simple yet so fantastic. This’ll be my goodie bag for the co-workers this year. Thanks for sharing – especially the printable!

    Michele — October 8, 2012 at 12:50 am

    I too would like to download this, but scribd has changed their policies and it now charges. Only a premium member can download this. can you re-post? Google docs hosts and they don’t charge to download. Thanks. It is a great idea and I plan to use for my kindergartner’s snack day.

    thank You!

      Hi Michele, I just gave it a try right now, and it works for me. Try this… follow the link (from this post to the printable), then on the right hand side click on “Download or Print”, then when a box pops up, click “download”, then another little box will pop up asking if you want to “save or open”. Just click “open” and the PDF file will open and you can print from there. Give it a try and let me know if you’re still having trouble.

    For the Spider legs I would have used black licorice or I would have covered the pretzels in chocolate. I think that would have gave it a more realistic look.

    Kym — October 24, 2012 at 4:01 am

    Super bummed I can’t get the printable to download for free :(

    sara — October 25, 2012 at 7:43 am

    I can’t seem to get the download to work for free either … it’s $9 a day in order to print it or save it :(

    Kristi Freeman — October 25, 2012 at 2:06 pm

    I have tried everything to download, cut paste, copy. I still cant get the lables to print. Any way I can get it emailed or a link posted so we can download for FREE. I am room mom for 2 of my kids class and we are making these for their Halloween parties, which my kids are so excited about. Thanks for the great idea, hope we can get the lable without having to pay the $9.00. :)

    Margaret — October 25, 2012 at 3:40 pm

    I copied and pasted to Open Office (Microsoft Office clone) and it worked fine. I only wish I could separate the labels because I think I could get at least 7, maybe 9 or 10 , to a page. Actually, I guess that would be 14 – 20. Is there any way to do that???
    These are so cute – thanks for sharing!!!
