Halloween trick or treat bags

Halloween is one of my favourite holidays of the year. However in Australia it has only started to take off in the last 10 years or so. We are lucky that we live in a suburb where there are lots of children that go trick or treating on Halloween (very different to when I was a child). Here is how we made Halloween treat bags for children visiting our house this year.

Step 1: Get out all the lollies and candy you are going to use and place each type into a separate bowl. We had about 7 types of candy - peppermint leaves, gumballs, frogs, snakes, vampire teeth, monsters and bananas.

Step 2: You  will something to put the lollies in. I bought about small 50 organza bags off EBay for about 10cents each last year. $5.00 for 50 bags. I got a gold pattern, as I also use these for Christmas treats too!

Step 3: Fill the bags with a mixture of the lollies. I tried to be consistent with how I filled the bags.
Step 4: Repeat until you have enough bags. I made about 30 bags.
 I have put the leftover lollies in the Jack of lantern for anyone who might miss out at the end of the night.
 Step 5: Then I placed them on a tray and onto a buffet near the front door ready to go for Halloween!
