Spooky snacks are some of my favorites! This Halloween themed popcorn is excellent for any Monther Bash or place it in bags to give to trick or treaters. Colored popcorn is a fun and easy way to make a snack for themed parties because you can color it in lots of fun ways. This Halloween popcorn is a more zombie themed popcorn because of the browns and greens.

The run thing about this popcorn is that you can make it with anything you like to make it spooky and Halloween themed. Edible eyes are my favorite though. They are great for any kids food project, so I keep them in the house all the time. There are so many great Halloween sprinkles out now also!
