Every year starting around the middle of September, my kids start counting down to Halloween. They love dressing up and going out trick or treating. My house is on a main road and sadly, there are no sidewalks on my street. I don’t feel safe trick or treating in my neighborhood, so every year we head over to my parents house to trick or treat. Their neighborhood is well lit, has sidewalks and is set up on a grid system. That makes it the perfect set up to make a killing when it comes to collecting candy – and that’s exactly what they do year after year.

This year Halloween falls on a Saturday, so we won’t be as rushed as we normally are as when it falls on a week day. Yay for that. Trick or treating hours are generally between 6-8, so we need to get on the road by 5pm at the latest to get to my parents house, which is 30 minutes away. That gives my kids a few minutes to visit with Nana & Papa as well as get into their costumes. Since this all falls right at dinner time, I need something to help me save some time when it comes to feeding my kids.

As you are probably well aware of, Halloween is right around the corner. The other day I headed over to Walmart to stock up on everything I needed for Halloween night. My first stop was in the freezer section where I grabbed some HOT POCKETS(R) Pepperoni Pizza Snack Bites to fill my boys bellies before we leave to go trick or treating.

As I said, we are not home on Halloween night to pass out candy. What I do is leave a big old bowl of candy outside on my deck with a note that says “help yourself” attached to it. Even though we are not home, I still like to take care of the other neighborhood kids on Halloween night. I ended up getting a couple of things to treat the trick or treaters this year. I picked up a bag of NESTL?(R) Jumbo Assorted Fun Size Candy (58oz) and WONKA(R) MIXUPS(R) Assorted Candy (53.3oz).

That give kids the choice between something chocolaty or something that’s not. It’s all about choices, right?


Since my parents are nice enough to let us spend the evening at their place every year on Halloween, I like to bring them a little something to snack on while they hand out candy to their trick or treaters. This year they are getting some No-Bake NESTL?(R) BUTTERFINGER(R) Bark. It’s very easy to make, so if you find yourself crunched for time on Halloween like I often do, this doesn’t take long to make at all and trust me, it will be gone in no time.

Here’s what you need:

  • Approximately 10 NESTL?(R) BUTTERFINGER(R) Fun Size candy bars.
  • 2 cups of Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
  • 1 cup of White Chocolate Morsels
  • 1/4 cup of creamy peanut butter


Here’s what you do:

1. Start by unwrapping your NESTL?(R) BUTTERFINGER(R) Fun Size candy bars.

2. Once your NESTL?(R) BUTTERFINGER(R) Fun Size candy bars are unwrapped, chop them up into small pieces.

3. Melt semi-sweet morsels and white morsels in separate microwave-safe bowls. Heat them in 30 second increments, stirring in between until they are smooth. FYI – the white chocolate only took me about a minute & a half and the semi-sweet morsels took about three minutes total.

4. Spread the melted semi-sweet chocolate on to a wax paper lined baking sheet, but make sure you save about 1 tablespoon to drizzle on top of your bark later.

5. Stir the peanut butter into the melted white morsels.

6. Drizzle your white chocolate/peanut butter mixture over the top of the semi-sweet chocolate and then gently spread over the top with a spatula.

7. Spread your NESTL?(R) BUTTERFINGER(R) bits over the melted chocolate and then drizzle with the remaining tablespoon of melted semi-sweet chocolate.

8. Put the bark into your refrigerator to harden up for about an hour. Once it’s hardened, break it apart and serve.

And, even though I thought I was all set for Halloween night, the HOT POCKETS(R) Pepperoni Pizza Snack Bites didn’t last very long, so I will have to run back to Walmart for more before the 31st.
