Turkey Leg Treat Bags

My son has 27 students in his Pre-K class....ugh. I should have taken the amount of holiday treat bags I would be making over the next year into account when choosing his school. Ha, no but really usually some where after number 15 I get a little crafted out. However, I usually push myself through thinking of my my son's sweet face, smile from ear to ear, gleaming with pride as he passes them out to all his friends. 


Not included, ziplock bags.....It is very important you put the mix in some kind of plastic baggies first, We found out the hard way the popcorn makes yucky grease marks on the paper bags. 

Paper bags: I'm not sure about other stores but Target sells a smaller size then the bigger ones. I chose the smaller size so they would be full enough without having to use a ton of mix. 

Ok so at first I was going to fill with candy as usual. However, while filling my cart I realized enough candy to fill all 27 bags was going to be like $50!!!! There is no way I'm dropping that much on candy for class. So I roamed the aisles trying to think of a tasty, fall themed, less expensive option. I saw the corn on the bags and "click" on turned the light bulb. At first I wasn't sure how white cheddar would taste with the chocolate. Obviously if you've ever visited a Peterbrook you know chocolate and popcorn together is a dynamite combination, but that's buttered not cheese flavor. Let me just say move over Peterbrook because this stuff is THE BOMB! (we couldn't stop eating handfuls at a time). I used milk chocolate, pumpkin spice, caramel, and peanut butter morsels. I think the mix would be awesome with some dried cranberries too but I didn't think 4 year olds would dig that too much.

1. Fill ziplock baggies with THE MIX
2. Place baggies in paper bag
3. Gather end and tape (I used packaging tape because it's what I had on hand)
4. Cut off end halfway through tape (so the end stays together real good)
5. Cut your card stock into stripes and then fray the ends 
6. Using a hot glue gun glue one side onto the top of the bag, then wrap around and glue the other           end. Then tuff out the frays.
7. Punch all your tags using a round or scalloped punch (best $7 I ever spent!!!!) 
8. Tie her up real good
