Hello! It's almost Halloween! Eek! I know a lot of you are gearing up for this fun holiday. Who's hosting a Halloween party this year? Me! ;) Who's making some yummy & spooky treats? Me, again! I'm sure I'm not the only one either! Americans of every age love to celebrate Halloween. Did you know that 34% of Americans either throw or attend a Halloween party? I'd love to hear what you are up, too! Today I'd love to share some Cute & Easy Halloween Ideas for Your Family with Hershey's. These are all great last minute Halloween ideas that you can do this week. So let's get started!

Cute & Easy Halloween Ideas for Your Family with Hershey's   at #Halloween #sponsored

spider cookies

One of our family's traditions is to host a spooky Halloween meal before we go trick or treating. I've shared these witch's hat cookies before. They are super easy to make with an iced cookie & Hershey's Kisses right on top. Add some orange icing & a sprinkle for a buckle, & you are all done!

Hershey Halloween Treats

To make these spider cookies you'll need to use your favorite peanut butter cookie recipe. I just grabbed a mix at the store. That's easiest! ha! ;) Roll into balls, and then bake as directed. When they get out of the oven quickly add a chocolate candy on top. Milk Duds, Rolos® candies or Whoppers all work fantastic for this! Add some cute eyes & some icing legs, & you are all done!

Another one of our family's favorite Halloween traditions is to "boo" our neighbors. We love leaving treats on our neighbor's doorsteps & then ringing the doorbell while running away before we get caught! Eek! It's so exciting! This year I decided to get the kids more involved in the "booing" process. ha! I set up a Boo'd Party so my kiddos could help put together the fun treats for our neighbors. They *might* of stole a treat or two for themselves, too! So let me show you what we did!

Halloween candy

First, you have to have plenty of candy to make enough treats for all of your neighbors. Am I right? Cadbury Creme Eggs, Reese's Peanut Butter Pumpkins & Hershey's Candy Corn Bars are the perfect addition for these or any other Halloween festivities! Annnnd don't forget the Caramel Apple Jolly Rancher suckers, orange Kit Kats® & Reese's Pieces. I think Hershey's makes a candy for just about everybody! What is your favorite?

Hershey's Halloween candy
The first party prep I did (after getting the candy together) was to make some fun containers to hold all of the different candies. Let me show you how I made one of them. These tin can mummies are super cute & easy to make.

You'll need a few supplies:
tin can painted black
wiggly eyes
hot glue
First, you'll glue on two wiggly eyes.
can crafts
Then hot glue one end of the gauze onto the bottom of your can & start wrapping.

Go around & around until it looks like this.

Hot glue the other end in place. You're done!

I also made ghosts, a Frankenstein, jack-o-lanterns & a bat.
Hershey's candy
I put different kinds of candy in each one, & then I spread out some Hershey's candies on the table.

Then it was time to grab a bag & fill it up! ha!
