But First, the Best Handmade Halloween Costume!
Remember Lotus? And how she made us all costumes last year? Well, I actually threw my Tragedy Ann costume together myself. So, the lucky recipient of a Lotus costume in our family was Pooh. She wanted to be Raggedy Ann, so Lotus hooked her up. I told you that Lotus makes the best handmade Halloween costumes, and I wasn’t lying!
Pooh looked so cute in this costume, I could hardly stand it. And I had a blast doing this fun, anime makeup look for her to go along with her awesome costume! It’s hard to find a raggedy ann costumes for kids that is made for taller-than-average folks, and Pooh is pretty tall. We couldn’t have her going around in a micro-mini skirt at just 11! Thanks to Lotus,

Also, I want to share one of my most requested recipes. And I don’t mean that people ask me for the recipe; they ask me for the finished product. I start hearing it in September…“When are you making Boo Mix?” “Are you going to bring me some Boo Mix?” “What is this Boo Mix I hear of?”…you get it. It’s one of those sweet and salty treats that everyone craves!
It’s something I make every Halloween season, and I always try to share some with my girls’ teachers. I also have to share with my friends at work, my Madre, and Jimmie. Even Shuh-wanda eats it, and she hates candy corn. Try it, you will be pleasantly surprised!
Here is the recipe so you can make it yourself when I croak. It’s one of those super amazing recipes that doesn’t need to die with me, it must be shared, and it’s really hard.
1 large bag fall colored M&M’s
1 can Planter’s Cocktail Peanuts
1 bag Brach’s Candy Corn
1 cup Sun Maid raisins
11/2 cups pretzel sticks, broken up into small pieces
Mix it all together, and eat until you feel sick. When you start feeling better, repeat. You may prefer a healthier method of consuming your Boo Mix. Make a double batch like I did, so you can share and also have plenty for yourself!
And, yes, I am specific with some of my brands here. This is how I make it, and I wanted to be specific because I’ve tried it with store brands and other brands of these items and it just wasn’t as good. I didn’t even share those batches. Pretzels are just pretzels, in my opinion, but if you have a favorite brand then use them (I use Rold Gold from Frito Lay). Halloween Boo Mix happens but once a year, and you want it to be extra-delicious!
Cute halloween packaging
If you need a cute idea for gifting your Halloween Boo Mix, here’s what I did. I had some plastic candy containers that I saved, so I covered the labels with Halloween Duck Tape, added a big ‘ol bow, and SHAZAM…
cute little gifting containers! Sour cream containers would work, or small mayo jars. You get the point. it was fun to DIY my containers, and I’m just loving the cute Halloween Duck tape! Amazon has several varieties to choose from, and I’ve linked a couple.
You can also put your Halloween Boo Mix into cute little Halloween treat bags, if you prefer. I found these pumpkin bags on Amazon, and the little twist-ties came with them. I might yet tie some cute Halloween ribbon on some of these, as well. You do your thing!
Just whatever you do, make sure you stir up some fun with this Halloween Boo Mix! This sweet salty party mix is too good to pass up, I promise!
See you on Monday!
