Pumpkin Patch Snack Pack®


This post is sponsored by Snack Pack®.

One of my daughter's favorite treats in her lunch box has been the Back to School Snack Pack®. Since we are more than a month into school, I wanted to change up the theme of her lunchtime treat. Halloween is my daughter's all-time favorite holiday. We spend a month putting together costumes and decorating our house. This year, we happen to be moving right before Halloween, so we haven't been able to decorate like we normally do. To make up for it, we created this extra-special Snack Pack® for her lunch box. It was easy to make and she loved helping!

You will need: 


  • Chocolate cookies 
  • Chocolate Snack Pack®
  • Green Sour Straws
  • Pretzels 
  • Orange chocolate
  • Halloween scrapbook paper
  • Tape
  • Wax paper


Put the orange chocolate in a bowl. Microwave for about 30 seconds and then stir. Repeat, microwaving for 30 seconds, and stir until the chocolate is smooth and melted. Dip the pretzels in the chocolate and then flip over to get the pretzel completely covered. Place the pretzel on wax paper. While the chocolate is still drying, pinch off a piece of sour straw and add it to the pretzel. This will serve as the pumpkin's stem.


Place a couple chocolate cookies in a plastic bag. You can use chocolate cookies with cream, just scrape the cream off before you put the cookies in the bag. Smash the cookies until they look like dirt, and sprinkle the crumbs on top of your Snack Pack®. If you desire, wrap a small piece of Halloween scrapbook paper around the Snack Pack® and secure it with tape.


Add the chocolate pumpkins to the dirt for a delicious treat! Usually when I send this treat to school, I put the Snack Pack® and the toppings in her lunch separately and let her have fun creating the treat herself! 



This Halloween take a moment to slow down and enjoy a tasty and fun treat with the kids. Snack Pack comes a variety of flavors and offers endless mix-in opportunities the kids can help prepare. Each serving of Snack Pack is fortified with as much calcium as an 8-oz glass of milk,* so you can feel good about serving your kids Snack Pack. For mix-in inspiration, visit Snack Pack on Pinterest(pinterest.com/snackpack) and Facebook (facebook.com/SnackPackPudding). 

** All Snack Pack products contain 30% DV calcium, with the exception of Bakery Shop Lemon Meringue Pie, Lemon Pudding, and Snack Pack Gels.

I never looked at a pretzel and thought to myself that it's the perfect shape for a chocolate covered pumpkin. That is so clever – love the sour straw stem.
