Make these clever ghost and googly eye treat bags for Halloween trick-or-treaters or party guests then fill them with your favorite Halloween candy — treats like Cadbury Scrème Eggs, Reese’s Peanut Butter Pumpkins, and Hershey’s Candy Corn bars.
Adhere googly eyes to small wax paper bags to make these simply ghost treat bags.
These adorable ghost bags are so easy to make. Enlist the help of your kids and this project comes together very quickly, leaving you more time to decorate. Give these out as a parting gift to your Halloween party guests or hand them out to trick-or-treaters, filled with your favorite Halloween candy.
To make these I used 4 1/2in x 6 3/4in Flat Glassine Wax Paper Bags, googly eyes and Tacky Glue. You can find the bags online at Amazon or at your local craft store. You can even use self-stick googly eyes and omit the glue. It doesn’t get much easier than that!

Glue on 3 pairs of spooky eyes and punch a couple of holes near the top of the bag to tie on a ribbon. It’s really that easy. You can whip up a lot of these in a short amount of time.
These goody bags hold a bit more than the ghosts, so you can really load them up with your favorite Hershey’s Halloween candy. All the little witches, ghosts and goblins at your party are sure to enjoy these treat bags.
Did you know that 34 percent of people attend or throw Halloween parties? When I was a kid, we threw a big Halloween party every year. My mom did an amazing job of transforming our back yard into a haunted forest. It was so much fun. I don’t go to all the trouble that my mom did, but these fun Halloween treat bags are sure to bring some smiles this year.

All this talk about Halloween candy gave me a great idea. I chopped up some of my Hershey Halloween favorites and made Halloween Candy Cookie Bars.
This is such a fun recipe. It’s perfect for your Halloween party. Also, a great way to use up leftover Halloween candy… if there is such a thing.
Halloween Candy Cookie Bars
2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup dark brown sugar, packed
1 cup white granulated sugar
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 cups coarsely chopped assorted Hershey’s Halloween candy
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 9×13-inch baking pan and line with parchment paper, leaving two flaps hanging over the edges of the pan. Grease and flour the parchment paper. Set aside.
In a medium bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, and baking soda. Add both the white and brown sugar to the dry ingredients and stir. Set aside.
In a separate medium bowl whisk together melted butter, eggs, and vanilla extract. Then add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir to combine. The dough will be thick and glossy. Stir in 1 cup of coarsely chopped candy. Use your fingers to evenly press the dough into the pan. Top with the remaining chopped Halloween candy.
Bake for 27 to 30 minutes until golden brown and cooked through. Allow to cool for 15 minutes in the pan before slicing into bars. Store at room temperature for up to three days.
