How to Prepare Your Home for Trick-or-Treaters

Trick-or-Treater Holding Orange Plastic Pumpkin Bowl | BlairCandy.comYou may have a big bowl of wrapped Halloween candy ready to go, but are you REALLY ready for those trick-or-treaters? If not, you’re not alone! Sometimes, it’s a bit of a last-minute rush to get everything in place for your neighborhood visitors, but don’t worry – we’re here to help! Be sure to follow this checklist to make your home a hotspot for Halloween activity!

● Clear your walkway from the sidewalk to your home so that it’s safe for trick-or-treaters to get to your door. Walking in masks and costumes is tough enough!

● Pick the best spot for handing out candy. Most people choose their doorway or porch, but if you’ve got a long driveway or a tricky path to the patio, think about setting up a candy stop closer to the sidewalk. Make it fun by turning it into a whole display, complete with spooky decorations!

● Let there be light! Houses that are well-lit are favorites for trick-or-treaters, so make sure your pathways and home are illuminated to let everyone know that you’re accepting knocks (and knock-knock jokes if they have any to tell!).

Finally, offer a variety of Halloween candy to suit every taste. Some kids may not like chocolate while others may prefer gummies. A variety can make for some very happy kids in your neighborhood! We’ve got you covered there with our huge selection of Halloween candies to choose from on BlairCandy.com!

Leftover Halloween Candy? Make Halloween Candy Trifle!

A Close-Up Photo of Chopped Pieces of Chocolate | BlairCandy.comStuck with lots of leftover candy? We’ve got a sweet solution!

Perfect for chocolate lovers with a lot of Halloween candy leftovers, this trifle recipe is a real crowd-pleaser at parties and get-togethers in late October and early November. If you’ve found yourself with extra peanut butter, caramel, or nougat bars wrapped in chocolate, try adding them into this yummy recipe!

Halloween Candy Trifle
Start by making a box of your favorite chocolate cake mix (choose your favorite recipe!) and 1 box of instant cheesecake or vanilla pudding according to their package directions. Make sure the cake is fully cooled and the pudding is fully set before taking the next step. In a separate bowl, crumble the prepared cake.

Then, in another bowl, fold 1 container of whipped topping into the pudding to make a “mousse.” Refrigerate until ready to use. On a cutting board, chop your various chocolate bars or candies. We personally love Reese’s peanut butter cups, Reese’s pieces, M&M’s, Snickers, Milky Way, solid dark chocolate bars, and Kit Kat Halloween candies for this recipe. Set aside.

Assemble the trifle by alternating layers of crumbled chocolate cake, mousse, and chocolate candy pieces. Make sure that your last layer is a layer of mousse topped by candy pieces. Drizzle with chocolate or caramel syrup and enjoy! Shop all candy at BlairCandy.com.

A Fun Halloween Pumpkin Reese’s Spiders Recipe

Halloween Reese’s Pumpkin Candy | BlairCandy.comThe Hershey Company knows what it means to be festive and for autumn, they get into the Halloween spirit with their release of Reese’s Halloween Pumpkins. These peanut buttery and chocolaty goodies are great for trick-or-treaters or for enjoying on their own. We especially love serving them up as a show-stopping party treat that’s easy – and fun! – to make:

Reese’s Peanut Butter Halloween Pumpkin Spiders

To make this sweet treat that looks just like a creepy, crawly spider, start by lining a tray with wax paper. Remove your peanut butter pumpkin candies from their wrappers and line them up on your sheet, making sure to leave a bit of room for the spider’s legs! To make the spider legs, take pretzel twists (large-sized ones work best!) and cut the curved sections so that you have enough for 8 legs on each peanut butter pumpkin body.

Next, melt chocolate chips (choose the flavor you like best!) and transfer into a piping bag. Cut off the tip of the bag at the point that’s about 1/4 of an inch from the end. Then, gently pipe the chocolate onto the pretzel legs so that they attach to the pumpkin body. Refrigerate or let the chocolate set before serving.

Enjoy!

Cool Halloween Candy Craft: Candy Wreath

Halloween Candy Gift Tin | BlairCandy.comTeachers looking for fun Halloween decorations for their classrooms don’t have to be limited to witches, goblins, and ghouls! Instead, you can turn cool Halloween candy into a craft that gives a friendly welcome to anyone who walks into your door!

Candy wreaths are a fun and festive way to celebrate the season without needing a ton of craft supplies. Simply gather together wrapped candies, a foam wreath, a hot glue gun, and ribbon and you’ve got all of the right ingredients for a Halloween decoration that’s not scary but sweet!

To make your wreath, begin by gluing individually wrapped Halloween candies (gummies, fun size chocolate bars, and other packages all work well!) onto your foam wreath. You can alternate colors or candy types, use different candies in patterns, or choose just one candy type to make it uniform. Make sure to give each row of candies around your wreath enough time to set before adding more. Then, once your wreath is fully covered, use decorative ribbon to either wrap around your wreath or add a decorative bow flourish.

Hang in your window, doorway, or another area of your classroom where you’d like to see it displayed. It’s that simple – and it’s sure to get students talking!
