No Bake Halloween Treats!
Halloween is around the corner and to get everyone in the festive spirit early this year I’m here to talk about Cute and Creepy NO BAKE Halloween treats!
It’s the perfect Halloween family activity everyone will surely enjoy and will make a great treat to devour after Trick or Treating!
I purchased ALL my ingredients from Bulk Barn in Grasslands (Except the Oreos and Strawberries). I have to admit this was my first time to visit and I was blown away! I had the biggest smile on my face, you know that “kid in a Candy Store” feeling hit me hard! Bulk Barn has an amazing selection for you creative critters out there to make or bake whatever your heart desires! The unique shopping experience allows you to bag and weigh the exact amount of the specific ingredient you need. Meaning, less waste and helps avoid overspending.
Here are some extra tips that can help you save even more money shopping at Bulk Barn. First watch for flyers in the Mail. Bulk
Barn has coupons that periodically go out in their flyers for when you spend certain amounts. I forgot my coupon, but the cashier luckily had an extra one to scan!
Secondly, shop on Sustainable Sundays! You’ll get 15% off when you use reusable containers or reusable bags. Visit https://www.bulkbarn.ca/en/Reusable-Container-Program for more details. Lastly, if you’re a Student or Senior you get 15% on Wednesdays on regular priced items. You can even use this discount in conjunction with coupons from Bulk Barn. Bulk Barn is also a great place to try different candies you’ve never had. You can buy a small amount so if you don’t like it, at least you didn’t have to buy a whole bag of it! I’m so excited for my next trip at Bulk Barn as the prices are reasonable and I am looking forward to discovering new things. In the meantime let me share our Spook-tacular No Bake Halloween treats below.
Marshmallows alone are already tasty on their own, but adding some candy wafer melts and sprinkles makes a spinechilling treat for all to enjoy. Bulk Barn has a variety of Candy Wafer Colours available!
What you need:
- Orange and Green Coloured Candy Wafers
- Candy Eyeballs
- Gel frosting
- Coconut Oil
Step 1. Melt candy wafers in a bowl in the microwave
Step 2. Add a little coconut oil (half a teaspoon) just to make the the candy easy to work with
Step 3. Dip marshmallow into melted candy wafers (use a toothpick to make it easy to dip)
Step 4. Sprinkle your toppings and place in the fridge for 20 minutes
Step 5. Once they have set, use icing to stick the eyeballs in and place it in the fridge again for 20 minutes
This is a very similar recipe and steps to our previous Marshmallow Monsters which is excellent because you get more BANG for your Buck using the extra ingredients you bought at Bulk Barn! We wanted to make Jack-O-Lanterns and Ghosts.

Step 4. Put on the candy eyeballs using the frosting and place in fridge for another 20 minutes
