Trick-or-Treat Fun

I thought I would share a few treats I have been putting together for Halloween. They can
 all be done fairly quickly, so there is still time. The first is a cool way to share your
favorite full size chocolate bars. You simply wrap them in crepe paper from the roll,
glue the end and glue on googly eyes for a silly treat that would make your mummy proud!
Besides the mummys, I am setting up a self serve candy mini bar using our cool milk bottle holder.
 I filled the bottles with various kid candies and retro style Halloween bags to fill up. This will
be a fun option for the kids we know that will have their parents with them.
Lastly, I made popcorn drizzled with white chocolate and sprinkles. I melted some Almond Bark
white candy coating in the microwave and drizzled onto the popped corn, which was in a
single layer over wax paper across my kitchen island.
As I worked, I quickly sprinkled with orange and black sprinkles. The coating dries fast!
Isn't it festive for Halloween! I bagged it up in cute bags and passed them out at a
 Trunk-or-Treat night of celebration.
Wishing you and yours a great family time this Halloween!

Just a little quickie~
I was watching the Today show, while eating my lunch, and saw these pumpkin decorating ideas from lifestyle expert, Evette Rios. I thought they were quick and fun. Go to to watch the video, if you missed it.
Have fun decorating!
