Monster Mix Popcorn Munch

One of my favorite things to make is chocolate covered popcorn.
It is such a blank canvas for so many different variations!

Every fall I buy the three seasonal cereals Count Chocula, Boo Berry, and Franken Berry.
And every fall they sit there, because for some reason ours kids will only eat one bowl.
It’s marshmallow cereal…why don’t they eat more of it?
I remember as a kid eating this cereal and loving it.

So this year, I decided that I was going to add it to a popcorn munch,
because I didn’t have a Halloween popcorn munch on here yet.

And because I love the taste of peanuts and candy corn together,
I decided to add that in with the cereal.

What I love most about this was that the popcorn still tasted like the cereal…
only with so much more to it!!!

I also decided to decorate some bags with some of my new Lifestyle Crafts die cuts.
This Build a Monster die is so much fun.  Those fangs are too much!!!
While I created the tag for the popcorn bags, my kids made monster face cards for their cousins.

I also pulled out the Party Flag Inserts dies that I bought a few months ago
to make the round blue tag and the black and red tags.

Some black & white twine and some letter stamps that I found for a $1 at Walmart
added the perfect little touch for the top tag.
Then I remembered that I had some little black clothespins that I just bought at Archivers.
It was the perfect extra thing for the bags.

Now all I need to do is drop these into a large plastic bag,
 and I have a fun gift to pass out at Halloween.

    This is the whole package and then some, girl! LOVE the packaging itself–totally adorable! And I am loving the mix just as much. Those cereals are amazing and I don’t know how your kidlets only stop at one bowl (what is that business?!)
