Did you know that Autumn is my favorite season?  It’s true.  I love everything about it.  The colors and the crispness to the air.  I love all the holidays and that there is one after another. 

I love decorating for them and I love the traditions.  One tradition my family has enjoyed for many years is BOO’ing our neighbors.  Have you ever BOO’d anyone?  Do you know what BOO’ing is?

BOO’ing is where you take a plate or basket of goodies to your neighbors, friends, or church family, leave it on their door step, ring the door bell and RUN!!! 

Inside is always a note that tells the person or family about this fun tradition.  In addition to the typed note (we wouldn’t want anyone to recognize your handwriting!), you also include a picture for them to hang in their front window or on their door.  This shows others that the Ghost of Halloween has already come to their home.

The note tells the person or family about this fun tradition as well as encourages them to pick a person or family to pass goodies along to as well.  As each person or family keeps the fun going, soon everyone in your neighborhood or circle has been visited and everyone has received a fun anonymous gift. 

My kids LOVE this tradition.  They love the mystery of getting a package as well as the fun of ringing someone elses doorbell and running. 

This year we’ve come up with a really fun {and easy} BOO kit for you! 

We’ve taken Sunkist®, and A&W Root Beer mini cans, which are already decked out with cute monsters, and covered them with gauze and googly eye balls to turn them into mummy’s.

We then used MILKY WAY® bars to create a simple 3 ingredient caramel candy bar hot chocolate which takes only minutes to create.  In addition, we’ve added extra candy from the Mars 52 ounce Mixed Mini’s bag as a fun treat to munch on while sipping your soda or hot chocolate.

This Boo Kit is incredibly easy to put together and oh so tasty.

In fact, when I first made my Caramel Candy Bar Hot Chocolate, I had my husband try it.  I asked what he thought of it.  He was impressed and said it was really good.  I then told him there were only TWO ingredients in it {a third if you count marshmallows}.  He said “What, hot chocolate mix and milk?” 

Sorry everyone, there is no powdered mix here.  Just simple MILKY WAY® candy bars melted down with added milk to create a creamy and delicious drink.  E-A-S-Y and oh so good!

So how do you start this fun tradition?  You can start by visiting the BOO It Forward website!  Here you’ll find more information on the BOO Kit as well as the printable signs and card for your own BOO Kit.

Once you’ve printed the signs, follow these directions:

  1. Cut out the “We’ve been BOO’d sign.
  2. Fold the “You’ve been BOO’d” greeting card (page 2) and tape openings together.
  3. Include the card and sign when gifting BOO bundles

You can find all the ingredients for my BOO Kit at Walmart! 

The candy can be found in the Halloween Isle and the soda can be found in the soda aisle.  Look for the specially marked 8 ounce Halloween cans which are perfect for your BOO Kit!

Candy Bar Hot Chocolate + Boo Kit

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes

Yield: 1 Serving

Ingredients

  • 10 MILKY WAY® Miniature candy bars
  • 1 cup milk (I prefer whole milk for my hot chocolate, however any percent or alternative milk would work)
  • Marshmallows {optional}

Instructions

  1. Open candy bars and place in a sauce pan.
  2. Turn burner on to medium low heat (I use 4 on my stove). Allow chocolate and candy to melt slowly into a melted glob. Do NOT rush this. If you turn the heat to high you'll burn the chocolate. This should take approximately 5 minutes. Stir regularly to ensure it melts evenly.
  3. Once chocolate is melted, slowly whisk in 1 cup of milk. Bring mixture to a boil.
  4. Remove from heat and pour into a mug immediately. Add marshmallows or any other favorite toppings to your hot chocolate.
