Halloween treats for school

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Anyone have any great Halloween treats for the kids to take to school for Halloween?? I signed up for treats to do for Kindergarten, but I figured I could also do the same for my preschooler too. Something that will travel well between home and school. FYI-dont want to do cookies or cupcakes. Maybe like some sort of munchie thing-Halloween themed trail mix.
Also, what do you have for Thanksgiving/Autumn treats too. No one is signed up for their Thanksgiving activity either, so I figured if I can find something easy/cheap , I would do something too.

Think I found some ideas. Thought I would share.

Halloween Chex® Mix-bc website.

8 oz white chocolate baking bars, coarsely chopped
4 cups Corn Chex® or Rice Chex® cereal
2 cups bite-size pretzel twists
1/2 cup raisins
1 cup candy corn
1/4 cup Betty Crocker® orange and black candy decors


1. In large microwavable bowl, microwave chopped baking bars uncovered on High 1 minute 30 seconds to 2 minutes 30 seconds, stirring every 30 seconds, until melted and smooth.
2. Gently stir in cereal, pretzels and raisins until evenly coated. Stir in candy corn and decors.
3. Spread on waxed paper or foil until cool and chocolate is set, about 30 minutes. Break into chunks. Store loosely covered.

Critter Crunch-bc website Think I might use this one for Thanksgiving
1 cup animal crackers
1 cup teddy bear-shaped chocolate or honey-flavored graham cracker
1 cup small pretzel twists
1 cup yogurt-covered raisins
1 cup candy-coated chocolate candies
10 colorful ice-cream cones , if desired


1. Mix all ingredients except ice-cream cones. Serve snack in cones.
2. Store in covered container.


Monster Munch_got this from the Oct. issue of Pilsbury. Checked on their website, it isnt on there yet, so no picture. Think this one is my favorite.

4 cups Chex cereal
4 cups popped pop secret microwave popcorn
1 cup honey roasted cashews
1 cup roasted salted pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup butter/marg.
6 tablespoons packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 cup candy corn

In 4-qt microwavable bowl, mix cereal, popcorn, cashews and pumpkin seeds, set aside. In medium microwavable bowl, microwave butter, brown sugar, corn syrup and vanilla uncovered on high for about 2 minutes or until mixture is boiling. Stirring after one minute, stir in pumpkin pie spice. Pour over cereal mixture, stirring until evenly coated. Microwave 5-6 minutes, stirring and scraping bowl after every minute. Spread on waxed paper to cool, about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally to break up. Stir in candy corn. Store in airtight container.

Do they still let you take homemade treats to school? Our schools don't allow it anymore. It has to be store bought. Then you also have to be careful with stuff containing peanuts for all those kids with allergies.

Just FYI, in MN it is illeagal to provide homemade treats for schools or daycares. You may want to check on that.

I'm sure you'll find out from the teacher, what treats are acceptable. Our school allows homemade treats but they have to be peanut free. When I do treats, I try to keep it simple...IMO kids like things they're used to, but that's just my experience in working in my kids classrooms. Something like frosted cut out sugar cookies in an seasonal shape, rice krispie treats cut out in a seasonal shape or even just in squares...maybe sprinkled with orange and/or black sprinkles etc They're easy to make, easy to package etc

It's just vanilla pudding with green food coloring and crushed oreos on top.  The face is drawn on the cup.
