Boo Basket? What’s a Boo Basket? Well, let me tell you!

A Boo Basket is a secret basket filled with Halloween goodies. You set it in front of your neighbor’s door, ring the doorbell – and then you RUN!  Make sure to put the poem in with the Boo Basket so they know to pass it along to another person.

Here is the Boo Basket I put together:

Here are some of the treats that I put inside (but really you can fill your baskets with ANYTHING!)

Candied Popcorn:

Recipe:

1 tbsp – coconut oil

1/4 cup – popcorn seeds

1 -2 squares of chocolate almond bark

1 -2 squares of white almond bark

1/4 cup – Reese Pieces

Directions:

I used the Nostalgia SP660SS Stainless Steel Stir-Pop 6-Quart Popcorn Maker, and I LOVE it!

  • Start by getting out a cookie sheet and putting wax paper on it. Then set it aside.

  • Put your coconut oil and your popcorn  in the machine.

  • While that’s popping – melt your chocolate squares, if using the microwave make sure to check the chocolate every 20-30 seconds and stir.

  • Once popcorn is done and chocolate is melted – lay popcorn on the cookie sheet in one even layer and then add the chocolate and Reese Pieces to the popcorn

  • Then I put mine in the refrigerator to harden up. (That’s optional)

  • Break into pieces, put in cute bags and enjoy!!!

 

Chocolate Covered Marshmallows:

I found these cute little ghost Marshmallows at Walmart and thought these would be fun to use.

  • I just used the same almond bark, as the popcorn, and dipped the marshmallows into it. And while the chocolate was still wet I added Reese Pieces for the eyes and bone sprinkles as a bow tie.

Recipe:

1 package – Chocolate Almond Bark

6 squares – White Chocolate Almond Bark

Kit Kats

Reese Pieces

Sprinkles

Directions:

  • Start with a cookie sheet covered with wax paper

  • Chop Chocolate Almond bark and put in a sauce pan over medium heat

  • Put the White chocolate squares in a bowl and into the Microwave – make sure to check it every couple seconds.

  • Once the chocolate in the saucepan is melted pour it on the wax paper and smooth it out into one even layer.

  • While still melted, add the white chocolate, candies, and sprinkles.

  • Put it all into the refrigerator and wait about an hour for it to completely dry.

  • Once solid – break it into pieces and bag it up.

This is a really fun recipe – and you can get really creative: try adding pretzels, nuts, seeds,  or peanut butter. Really the possibilities are endless.

 

Once all of my treats were done, I added them to my Boo Basket, with a little more candy and maybe a few tricks. 😉  Happy Halloween!!!
