I found these gooey bug flickers in the dollar section at Target! I thought they would make a fun game for any party! bug flickers

Each box comes with a fun character…set them up and try to knock them down with the flickers! fun Halloween characters


And a party isn’t a party without a fun treat!

count chocula® treats

They are a real kid/crowd pleaser!

You need: Marshmallows, butter and cereal! (and you can add toppings like sprinkles or white chocolate!)

Takes 5 minutes to make (and then about an hour of set up time for the treats!)



-Marshmallows..(half bag of marshmallows was perfect for a box of Count Chocula ®)

-Add 2 TBS of butter and melt. (I just zapped it in the microwave for about 30 seconds) melted marshmallow treat

-Pour in cereal and stir until coated. Press into a greased pan. how to make a halloween treat

I tinted some white chocolate an orange color and drizzled it over…but you could add fun Halloween sprinkles or M&M’s. Easy and delicious. The perfect combo! Makes a 9×12 inch pan full! So you can get 20 squares (or more or less depending on how you cut them!) and Boo Berry® and Franken Berry® would be just as yummy

yummy and easy treat for a Halloween party!


I thought you could use the other two cereal for a fun don’t eat pete game (one person leaves the room and everyone agrees on which square is pete.  They place a piece of cereal on each square.  The person comes back in and slowly picks off a piece of cereal trying to not eat pete. The goal is to get as many cereal pieces as they can before they pick “pete” (and when they get to pete…everyone shouts DON’T EAT PETE!
