Marshmallow Candy Corn Halloween Treats


I finished up Emmie's class Halloween treats yesterday, so I thought I'd share them with y'all today!  It is a fun (and incredibly easy) Halloween craft that would be perfect for trick-or-treaters or class presents.  I've also included a printable tag to use below!

Emmie actually helped me put together this one.  I know I wanted to do something candy corn-related, but didn't know exactly what candy to use to achieve the effect.  Toddler to the rescue!  She was the one that suggested using marshmallows to make the color variations, and sure enough, our store had the perfect multi-colored pack to use. Putting these together is as easy as sorting and stacking.  This would be a great way to get your child involved in holiday celebrations too.  Emmie loved finding the colors with me.

Here's what you'll need...

-Cone-shaped treat bags (FYI - these aren't always easy to find in stores, but in a pinch, you could use disposable icing piping bags from the craft section.)
-Orange, Yellow, and White Marshmallows (To complete 10 bags, I'd recommend 1 bag of white and 3 bags of multi-colored.)
-Ribbon
-Printable (Below)

Assembly is just as easy as it sounds...just layer and tie off!  As far as the filling for the bags, the possibility is really endless...you could use fruit-flavored candies, candy-coated chocolate candies, even dried fruit.  This time of the year, there are so many options with this color scheme.

The printable tag for this could really be used for any Halloween sweet treat.  I did it in black and white in the photos above, but the version below is color.
