"Boo" a neighbor with Monster Mix

Some of you may know the cute tradition of "Booing" your neighbors with cute Halloween treats. They in turn "Boo" some more neighbors and so on and so on. 

This year when I saw Monster Mix I knew this would be the perfect treat for "Booing." 

Monster Mix 
adapted from Craftomaniac


1 bag of popcorn 
1 cup mini M&M's 
1 cup candy corn 
1/2 cup Halloween sprinkles 
half of a bag of lime green melting chocolate 


Pop the popcorn as directed and spread out a cookie sheet. 

Melt the chocolate as directed and drizzle over the top of the popcorn (you can use the whole bag and completely coat the popcorn but I was making this for 3 year olds and trying to avoid a complete sugar melt down!). 

Sprinkle the chocolate covered popcorn with sprinkles, M&M's, and candy corns. 

Toss it and allow it to cool. 

Place in bags with a little note attached and "Boo" your neighbors!

 I found these mini water bottles at Walmart for 94 cents so 
I couldn't resist throwing these in with the treats! 

*If you have never heard of "Booing" and you want to start it with your neighbors, here is the poem to start the fun (mine is not "secret" because we are too young to understand that around here and plus, I tell them they can't have treats from strangers!)

The air is cool, the season fall,
Soon Halloween will come to all.
Ghosts and goblins, spooks galore
Tricky witches at your door.
The spooks are after things to do,
In fact a spook brought this “Boo” to you!
Please join the fun, the season’s here.
Just spread these “Boo’s” and Halloween cheer!

You have been BOOED!
Here is what you do:
Within 2 days, make 2 copies of this note and make 2 treat bags.
Deliver them to some of your friends.

Maybe the one who you “Boo”
Will give you a “Boo” too!
