Happy Fall Friday! My favorite way to celebrate a new season is with a festive treat and today I’ve got a fun one to share! My friends over at ClearBags sent me these chic and versatile spider web treat bags. Here’s just one of the sweet ways I filled them.
Sweet & Spooky Dark Chocolate Bark
Rich, salty and sweet dark chocolate bark, complete with pumpkin seeds, crunchy pretzels and edible eyes on top! The bark is a little bit spooky and a whole lot delicious! And as an added bonus is dairy gluten-free. A great natural alternative to the sugary treats our kids eat so much of as Halloween approaches. Speaking of Halloween, aren’t these spider web bags perfect for the season?
I love the way they’re printed with the black web design and couldn’t wait to use them. They showcase my spooky bark perfectly and look even prettier when finished with simple black and white twist ties. The twist ties are also from ClearBags.
