I’m on a roll with all the Halloween treats I’ve been making lately and I’m not even done. I try to make Halloween more than just a one day Trick-or-Treat fest, and aside from decorations, there’s no better way to do that than with Halloween-themed goodies. The latest to come out of my dining/crafting room are these Halloween Snoball Monsters.
Aren’t these the scariest, highly nightmarish, most mortifying…just kidding…aren’t they cute?! I wanted to do something I’d never seen before, but that was still a tasty treat and easy to do. Ain’t nobody got time for fully involved Halloween treats, but store-bought upgrades? That, I can do.
For these Halloween treats, I used Hostess Snoballs, along with some basic crafting supplies and a printable sheet of monster mouths. In no time, I had enough Halloween Snoball Monsters for my son’s entire class. And my kids had a blast helping “decorate” them.
- Hostess Snoballs
- Clear treat bags
- Monster mouths (printable)
- Googly eyes
- Start by transferring the Snoballs to the treat bags. Hold the Snoball package up to the opening of the treat bag and keeping the white square underneath the Snoball, slide it into the treat bag. You want to do your best not to touch the Snoball with your hands.
- Using the ribbon, tie the treat bags closed right above the Snoball. When tying the bags, try to keep the front as flat as possible since you’ll be gluing items to it.
- Cut out the monster mouths you want to use. Glue them to the front of the treat bags, over the Snoballs inside.
- Glue the googly eyes to the front of the treat bags. Get creative with the eye placement and number of eyes for each monster. Just like us, monsters are unique in their own way.
- Allow everything to completely dry. Then share and enjoy!
*Notes: Basic glue will work, but you can also use hot glue if you want to reduce the dry time. If using hot glue, just be careful not to use too much, or burn through the treat bag.
