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!

  1. 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 🙁

  2. Super bummed I can’t get the printable to download for free 🙁

  3. 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.

  4. I still am unable to get it 🙁

  5. 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.

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

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

    • 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.

  8. Great idea I really love your amazing creative talent

  9. hee hee ghost poop! 😉 cute
