Halloween Party Favor

Halloween party favor ideas

A Halloween party favor is a cute and fun way to make your guests feel special and get into the spirit of a Halloween party.

I saw a really cute Halloween party invitation idea on the Martha Stewart website a couple of years ago.  

Unfortunately, I don't think it's available for sale any longer, but the idea was quite clever so I wanted to share it with you anyway.

Basically, each invitation was a little black cardboard box with a white resin finger inside.  Eerie!

A black ribbon was tied around the finger and the details of the Halloween party - time, place, etc., were written inside the lid of the box.

I was thinking this idea would be great with a little twist.

How about chocolate?  :)

Wouldn't it be great to send a chocolate finger rather than a resin one?  

Sadly, I haven't been able to locate a chocolate mold that was just a solid "finger." 

I did, however, find a chocolate covered pretzel mold that was the shape of a molded skeleton finger. That would work perfectly.  ;) 

You can pick up the mold right here at Candyland Crafts along with all the chocolate, cello bags, etc, you might need to create your invitations or Halloween party favors.

Maybe you can come up with another way of creating your own version of this clever idea. If you do, please show it to us or at least give us the details so others can use the idea too.

Here are some more party favor ideas that you might like to try...

Halloween Chocolate Bar Party Favors

Have you ever used a personalized candy bar as a custom party favor? They're great! 

You can purchase the wrappers already made up personalized with your message.  You can also choose to get them with or without the candy bars.  It's probably cheaper in most cases buy the wrappers online and the candy bars locally and then attach the wrappers yourself. 

If you are a bit more adventurous, you can easily make your own Halloween chocolate bars. You can make personalized chocolate bars, not just for Halloween, but for any occasion all year. Just order and download the easy to use software to do it yourself at one of the following...

They each have their strengths and weaknesses, so check them out and see which option suits you best.   I purchased the program myself so now I can print my own party favors any time I want.

  4. Place in fridge for a couple of minutes to set.
  5. Use the melted chocolate to 'glue' on the candy eyes and paint a mouth.
  6. Break small pieces of pretzel and poke them into the sides of his head for bolts.
