Halloween Bucket of Cookies & Pretzels

A few weeks ago I told you that I was able to use an incredible farm to take senior pictures for two gorgeous fun girls!

I wanted to suck up to thank the family for letting me use their gorgeous property and hoping they will let me use it again!

They have three young children……so I thought what better way to thank mom and dad?………

FEED their kids with LOTS of sugar! lol

Think they’ll have me back?

Remember the Halloween Cookies I made? I made them to give to them, but wanted something cute to put them in.

So after wandering the aisles of Michaels one afternoon…..I came home with these……..

Halloween bucket supplies

and turned it into THIS!

Bucket of Halloween Cookies

I bagged up several of my Halloween Cookies, and then made some dipped pretzel rods.

I found Halloween colored Wilton Spooky Candy Melts and Halloween sprinkles for the pretzels and bagged them 5 to a bag.

You can visit this post to see how I dip pretzel rods using a piece of wax paper.—SO EASY!

Halloween Pretzels

I didn’t give them the cups…….we made them a few years ago.You can buy some cute Halloween plastic tumblers and put each child’s name on them with a paint pen- it even holds up thru the dishwasher.

The Halloween Bucket of Cookies & Pretzels was a BIG hit with the kids….and Mom & Dad!

    That is SO CUTE! And I love that something that looks this awesome can be made using 40% coupons at the craft stores. Thanks for the inspiration!

    Dipped pretzels are such a great Halloween treat idea! And a bucket of treats is way better than store bought candy. Thanks for sharing!

    Love this! Thanks for the great idea on dipping the pretzels – I would have never thought of the wax paper tip. I love the caramel idea as well! You are awesome!

    If I let you come to my home and shoot pictures on my property will you promise to bring me a bucket just like this and filled with all your goodies? My door is open LOL.

    Great decorating of both the buckets and the treats. What a lovely gift.

    Cheryl, this is just too darn cute. Makes me wish I had small kids again, or better yet, wish I could go back and do my childhood over (with cute stuff like this).

    Just look at that cute bucket of treats! I’m sure those lucky kids went WILD for it!

    Speaking of Michaels, I picked up a package of long plastic bags especially made for dipped pretzel logs (one log per bag). Used my coupon, of course!
