Trick Or Treat Bags with Gruesome Green Popcorn

Apologies as this is an ultra-quick post today as I have had a very busy weekend!
Getting in the Halloween spirit, I came up with these trick or treat bags which I found in my local Home Bargains.
They are made by Wilton, purveyors of all things baking, American wise. But I reckon, if you can’t get hold of these, any paper bag would do. The fun part is using stickers to decorate them with scary eyes and ghoulish mouths.

To fill the bags up, I made some fresh popcorn. I was going to leave it plain, but then I remembered I had a bag of green candy melts in the cupboard. They are also by Wilton (I swear I have not been paid by them for this post!) but I have seen many different makes now in shops like The Range and Hobbycraft.

I melted the melts, but they were still quite thick, so I added 3 to 4 teaspoons of vegetable oil to loosen the mix up. It was then the perfect consistency to coat the popcorn with. Don’t get me wrong, the popcorn is not smothered in green candy, merely tinged. It looks quite effective and is perfect for stuffing those bags. It dries hard, so doesn’t make a mess. Not fancy green? Then grab any color you like.

Lastly I took some strawberry laces and other fizzy gummy sweets and added these into the bag, to sort of look like spooky hair.
And that is it! I said it was quick – and not so much a recipe, more of a craft today.
So, get popping, Halloween will be here before you know it!

I am entering these bags of popcorn and treats into this month's Treat Petite, hosted alternately by myself - and this month Kat at the Baking Explorer. The them this month is Trick or Treat.
