For Hallowe’en party treats I wanted to make something that had seasonal color, hid the candy from view, and was easy to make. I finally came up with “Ghostly Goodies”. I often eat small (4 oz tubs) of Greek yogurt. So I thought: >check!< there’s my treat base! All I had to do was find a material to cover it, a tie, and candy to put into it. <that was the easy part for me! A nice feature of the Ghostly Goodies is that you can use whatever materials you have on hand…or make your own design. Here’s the basic “recipe”:
small tubs (use 4 0z Greek yogurt or butter tubs, etc)
for each 4 oz. tub use approx. 10″ x 15″ piece of cotton or other material….make it fit the size of your base
choose a tie for each “goodie bag”….raffia, ribbon, twine, berries on coated wire, etc
**The best part~choose the candy to go inside!
Tips: I put a section of looped packaging tape on the bottom of the tub, then stuck it in the center of the material. That way the tub did not slip around as I was gathering the material. The Ghostly Goodies could be for adults or children.
Have fun creating and Happy Hallowe’en!
