How To Prepare Snack Tin or Pail:
Make sure the tin or pail you are using is clean, (washed and dried).
Cut a piece of wax paper or parchment paper to fit inside the bottom of tin or pail. Place paper inside bottom of tin or pail.
Cut pieces of cardboard to use to divide sections for the different snack ingredients.
Wrap each snack ingredient (such as pretzels, etc.) in cellophane, and tightly tie cellophane with sting or ribbon.
Place each ingredient (after being placed in cellophane) inside each compartment of tin or pail that you have made with cardboard to divide each snack type with.
Cover top of tin or pail with cellophane and secure cellophane around the sides of tin or pail with elastic or string, or ribbon. Tie or place orange or black ribbon (or bow if desired) on top or around tin or pail, or place bow on handle of pail.
When kids come "Trick or Treating", have the tin conviently placed inside near your front door to have ready for a quick snack for the very hungry little "Trick or Treaters".
Give as gifts to friends, family or neighbors on Halloween, or bring to a Halloween party for guests to snack on.
TIP: Try to find a 2 gallon tin or pail to use for these snacks. A 2 gallon tin will hold quite alot of these Halloween treats.
