Gifting: Monster Mix for Halloween

If yesterday's post of pumpkin carving for Halloween didn't prove to you just how un-crafty I can be, then today's project may do the trick. You see, I love giving {and receiving, ahem}, but a lack of time and a creative mind so many of my fellow blog friends possess, means I want something easy, pretty, and quick to whip up. At the end of the day, however I still want to give a treat when, and where I can.

Enter the easiest  Halloween treat you can gift to others: Monster Mix! Monster Mix is really just a festive term for trail mix. Of course "monster" makes it legit as far as Halloween is concerned. My love for trail mix began when we gave it as a favor for our wedding, two years ago. I may *also* have something like 70 mason jars floating around our casa from said wedding, as well. The funny thing is when we were planning our day, finding mason jars was a j.o.b. itself, and so I saved those babies, having no clue they'd become such an epidemic for trendy, pinterest projects. 

Feel free to create your own Monster Mix, or take the easy way out and buy it from the grocery. It's all about the presentation anyway, right? I purchased ribbon for $1.09 from Michaels to add some color.

I'm bringing a few of these festive treats on Halloween morning to the office. Because really, what better way to soothe our work woes on a holiday than with a JAR full of nuts, and chocolate? 

Do you give treats to friends, family, or co-workers for Halloween?

  1. No treat giving out to anyone besides the kids that come knocking, but those are cute!

  2. I love it! :) I make treats for Kyle's work, I've done it for every unit he has been in. :) It's so much fun.

  3. What a great idea!!!!!! :-) Love anything in a mason jar lately!

  4. Target makes everything better! :) I don't give out treats because usually the day after all of the parents bring in the candy they don't want their kids to have! :)

  5. How does a mason jar make anything look so cute and lovely? Such a good idea!

    1. Thanks, Jaclyn! And I totally agree

  6. Long live the mason jars! Can't believe they were so hard for you to find at the time! And so very sweet for you to bring some to your coworkers. I hope they enjoyed it!
