When I was a little girl I remember getting Boo'd by neighbors and then my family picking a few homes in our neighborhood and making them a treat and doing the same thing that others did to us! It was a very fond memory as a child. So when I realized that their was a website featuring just this I knew that I wanted to be a part of it so that my children could experience the same thing that I did! 

And let me tell you..it was even better then I remember. My kids loved it just as much as I knew they would! And luckily here is the website that helps you with the printable along with Walmart having the perfect serving containers, candy, and mini Halloween drinks to put in your container. All the behind the scenes work has been done for you! All you have to do is print this printable
Then....
  1. Cut out this "We've been BOO'd sign.
  2. Fold the "You've been BOO'd" greeting card (page 2) and tape openings together.
  3. Include the card and sign when gifting BOO bundles.




Now here are the steps that I did to make my bundle! I headed to Walmart and found the candy and drinks that I used here


Got home and layed everything out 


Then we opened up a bag of candy and made these Mini Candy Bar Cookies. Our favorite candy to use is SNICKERS® 

I drizzled most of them but then added candy eyes to a few of them by dipping the back of the eyes in Karo syrup and placing them on the cookies.


Mini Candy Bar Cookies

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup peanut butter
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 eggs
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
Chocolate Mini Candy (ex. SNICKERS® SNICKERS®3 MUSKETEERS®) unwrapped

Cream butter, sugar, brown sugar, and peanut butter; add the vanilla and eggs. In a separate bowl mix together dry ingredients. Add dry to wet. Take 1 heaping tablespoon of dough, flatten, and put mini chocolate candy inside, fold over and form into a ball, completely covering mini candy bar. 
Bake at 350 degrees F on a ungreased cookie sheet for 10-12 minutes. Don't over bake! Mix together glaze ingredients and drizzle glaze over baked cookies.

Glaze:
1 cup powdered sugar
2 Tablespoons peanut butter
2 Tablespoons milk (slowly add a Tablespoon at a time)


We then assembled out kits. By picking out our containers. Placing the folded "We've Been BOO'd" sign in the back and then stuffed them full of cookies (in halloween bags), candy, and fun mini halloween 7UP® and A&W 8 ounce cans. 

Here are the 3 different ones that we did!







And then we were off to deliver! I let each child pick out their favorite basket and pick a neighbor that they think would love it!
