A Peek at the Fun: Make your friends smile when you show up at their door with one of these fun Halloween gift ideas-Halloween themed muddy buddies in a jar with a cute gift tag.
My pants are too tight as I write this post-I think I’ve gained five pounds putting this post together! I’m a sucker for Muddy Buddies and when I’ve got to test out 3 different flavors of Halloween muddy buddies (because I want to make sure I’m giving you the best of the best-I’m a giver like that), things get a little crazy and pants get a little tight.
But these Halloween Muddy Buddies are good and when you put one of these cute tags on them and make it into fun Halloween gift ideas to take to friends, good things happen.
There are three amazing flavors-each with a fun Halloween theme and each with a coordinating gift tag so that you can package it up cute.
Simple Halloween Gift:
Once you have chosen your favorite flavor (or make all three), all you need to do is grab a jar, fill it up, and add the cute tag. These Halloween Gift Ideas don’t get any simpler and your friends will love them.
Monster Muddy Buddies:
Here’s a fun monster version, mint Muddy Buddies with Frankenstein on the tag.
One of my favorite things about Muddy Buddies is how easy they are to make! You can whip up a batch of these in about ten minutes and have cute Halloween gift ideas all ready to go.
Monster Muddy Buddies
- 9 C Rice Chex
- 1 1/2 C White Chocolate Chips
- 1/2 tsp Peppermint Extract
- 1 1/2 C Powdered Sugar
- Green Sixlets
- Andes Mints
- Edible eyeballs
Pour your Chex in a large bowl.
In a smaller bowl add your white chocolate and melt in microwave stopping to stir frequently.
Pour over cereal and mix till evenly coated.
Pour Peppermint Extract over the mixture.
Add powdered sugar and mix till covered again.
Chop Andes Mints into small pieces and add to mix. Add Sixlets and eyeballs and enjoy!
Here’s your tag for this one with a PDF with two on it (or right click and save to your computer):
Jack-O-Lantern Muddy Buddies:
Here’s our Caramel Muddy Buddies with a cute Jack-o-Lantern twist:
Jack o’ Lantern Muddy Buddies
- 9 C Rice Chex
- 1 C Chocolate Chips
- 1/2 C Caramel Sauce
- 2 1/2–3 C Powdered Sugar
- Candy Corn and Candy Pumpkins
- Fall Colored Sixlets
Pour Rice Chex in a large bowl.
In a smaller bowl add your chocolate chips and melt in microwave (stirring occasionally to prevent burning).
Pour over your Rice Chex and stir until totally coated. Add your caramel sauce and stir again until it is also coating the cereal. Add powdered sugar and stir (or put a lid on the bowl and shake) until all the cereal is evenly covered.
Add candy corn, pumpkins, and Sixlets.
Mmmmm! This stuff comes out so chewy and nice and is especially good after it has some time to sit.
Here’s a cute label for you to add. Either right click and save and print from your computer or here’s a PDF with a couple of them ready for you to print:
Skeleton Muddy Buddies:
These ones are my absolute favorites; Coconut Muddy Buddies recipe with a cute Skeleton Tag:
Skeleton Muddy Buddies
- 2 C white chocolate chips
- 9 C Rice Chex
- 1 teaspoon coconut extract (optional-add more to taste)
- 1 1/2 powdered sugar
- Mini Marshmallows
- Shredded Coconut
- Sixlets (optional) (Get these at a party store)
Melt your white chocolate. This part is tricky because white chocolate can be finicky. Make sure to stir often whether you are doing it in the microwave or on the stove. Heat and mix till melted.
Put your Chex in a big bowl and then pour your white chocolate mixture over it and stir till it’s covering the Chex evenly.
Add in your coconut extract, pouring it over the mixture.
Sprinkle on your powdered sugar and mix till it covers the Chex.
Sprinkle on mini marshmallows and shredded coconut to taste.
Add Sixlets for a pop of color.
Here’s the fun tag:
Eat up! Someone else has got to add 5 pounds with me!
Have FUN with Halloween Gift Ideas!
