Halloween is so close and my family is beginning to get so excited! We love dressing up and going trick or treating! We also love decorating our house for all of the fun Halloween festivities! 

This year two of my closest friends moved into their own home so this will be the first time that they are handing out candy at their own place on Halloween night! They are so excited but between unpacking and getting settled in they haven't had time to get anything to decorate for Halloween or get into the Halloween spirit. I decided that I would make it easier for them and give them a New Home BOO Kit

BOO Kits are the perfect way to get friends and family into the Halloween spirit even if they aren't in a new home! You can make a BOO kit for your office, for your child's classroom, for a Halloween party, and even as a college care package! BOO kits are the perfect way to make Halloween a little bit spookier and fun for the people you care about! I love that I can find everything I need to make BOO kits at Walmart regardless of who I am giving it to! Walmart's affordable prices make it easy to fill a BOO kit too!


For my BOO kit I wanted to make getting ready for Halloween in a new home easy and enjoyable! I included things to decorate, hand out candy, and to enjoy your evening! 

What is in this New Home BOO Kit:
Two bags of MARS/Wrigley Candy
Mini Cans of 7UP®  brand soda
Dessert Sized Paper Plates
Napkins
A Boo Sign
Spider Webs
Window Clings
Candy Bucket

And of course the printable You've Been BOO'd sign which you can find to download and print HERE! It is easy to assemble! Cut out the sign, fold the "You've been BOO'd" greeting card and tape the openings together! Don't forget to include the card when you are gifting BOO kits! 


My friends now have loads of candy to hand out on Halloween and A&W soda to enjoy while handing it out! You can enjoy these items too! Print out this COUPON and head to Walmart to save $1 on TWO (2) 2L or 6pk 8oz cans of any flavor Sunkist® Soda, 7UP®, Canada Dry®, A&W®, Squirt®, or Sun Drop®!


Since this was the first year that my friends would be handing out treats in their first home I wanted to give them a treat to make sure that their Halloween night was extra special! I already included the plates, napkins, and A&W soda in their BOO kit so now it was time to make them something to go along with it! 


After much thought about what type of treat to make my friends for Halloween I decided on these super easy and seriously delicious M&M's® Cookie Cups! I know that these treats will be perfect to snack on while they hand out candy on Halloween night!

Ingredients:
Cookie Dough (homemade or store bought)
Frosting (homemade or store bought)
M&M's®


Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a mini muffin pan using non-stick cooking spray. Roll one tablespoon of cookie dough into a ball and push into one section of a mini muffin tin. Be sure to push an indent into the center. Bake for around 8 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool, then remove the cookies from the muffin pan. 

Once the cookies are thoroughly cooled it is time to add the frosting and M&M's® ! Whenever I need to pipe frosting onto something I prefer using gallon sized freezer plastic bags over baker's frosting bags, I find that the plastic bags are much more durable and hold more! I cut off a bit of the corner, insert the size frosting tip that I want, put the frosting into the bag, and begin piping! Once all of the cookie cups had frosting on them I added some M&M's® to each! You could also chop up some other types of MARS candy to add to the top of these treats!

Now my friends not only have candy to hand out on Halloween and some some spooky decorations, but they will have a treat to enjoy as well! I am sure that they are also going to snack on the candy while handing it out too. After all who can resist candy like TWIX®, MILKY WAY®, SNICKERS®, SKITTLES®, and STARBURST®?!
