What treats are you giving out for Halloween?

We're giving out packets of hot cocoa mix!! Someone in our neighborhood was doing that last year, and I thought it was a good idea, because the kids get so cold walking around.My kids were so excited about coming home and making their hot chocolate. Wal-mart had their Swiss Miss cocoa mix on sale last week, 30 envelopes in a box for $2.98. We bought 4 boxes because we always get a ton of trick-or-treaters.

  • Nothing, I have never in 30 years got any trick or treaters , my neighborhood is dark, my driveway is really long and the houses are really far apart.

  • nothing! I didn't buy any candy becasue we were planning to take our kids but our oldest is sick so we will probably just play those old mean people and not answer the door.

  • Kit Kats here for us but we never get many kids so I'll probably eat them myself

  • I bouught about 10 bags of whatever the dollar store had. That way we have a variety and didn't spend a fortune!

  • We are not giving out any, as we won't be home. We will be up at my mom's house (she always gives out candy) and my kids will be trick or treating around her neighborhood.
    I like the cocoa idea.....

  • DH grabbed a couple of bags of Whoppers and mixed Recees stuff earlier today. That's it this year since money is pretty tight.
