Halloween is upon us once again and the fun part is figuring out how to hand out all those spooky treats!

We love making handmade favor containers with the kids like these spooky cute DIY Halloween Treat Cups. All you need are colored paper cups and paper to make fun characters like a bat, Frankenstein, and pumpkin.

And of course you need your favorite treats! One of ours are Crunch Fun Size mini bars which are the perfect combination of 100% real milk chocolate and crisped rice. Growing up, Crunch was one of my favorite Halloween candy brands and I’m so happy it’s my kids’ too!

To keep these Halloween treats not too ghoulish we made the faces friendly for little trick or treaters. See how to make them below.
