Zombie Eyes {{Free Printable}}

Yesterday was one of those days that I realized that it is super  important that grocery stores make a drive thru option. Now to clarify, it wouldn't be a normal type of drive thru where you would do all your grocery shopping done.

It would be exclusively for SAHMs of multiple children that made yet ANOTHER trip to the grocery store (Three times in two days thank you very much) for the one or two items they are bound to forget shopping with little ones.

People have told me to use a delivery service and stuff like that, but I like seeing and choosing my own food. I just do, maybe that is weird but whatever it's me. And it's not the madness of food shopping with three kids that I don't enjoy, I find that part actually funny and slightly amusing :) It's the getting the kids in and out of the car. Again and again and again through out the day. Sometimes it's 12 ins and outs of the car, that my friends take a toll on ones back.


So now can you see why my drive thru option is valid. Just imagine driving up to the window where there would be a long line of other Moms waiting to order, " A gallon of milk."  I would say laughing with a wave of my hand. "The item I actually came here and forgot....again" And me and the window guy would just laugh and laugh at the irony of it all with him telling me "Same story all day long , by the way your hair looks fabulous today Mrs. Powers."  Now that my friends, that is service :)

 It would be perfect. Anyhoo, lets move on.

With Halloween only a day away I wish I had gotten this up sooner for you all. But as is life, it does happen and sometimes I can't always get everything I want and need done in the short 24 hours of a day. Since as I mentioned above I spend eleven thousand hours at the grocery store forgetting everything and the remaining few hours of the day putting my kids in and out of the car.

 I originally saw this idea on Souffle Bombay and tweaked it a little an also added in the fun printable, that just brings the whole idea together as an awesome  favor for my pre-schooling kidooddles.

These are super easy to make and are a perfect treat, because really who doesn't like salty and sweet???? (If that is you, please don't feel the urge to chime in mmmkay..thanks :) )

Here is what you will need to make the pretzel bites.....
  • Square mini pretzels ( I used  Synders Butter snaps)
  • White chocolate candy melts
  • Black Sixlets candies (You could use M&M's also)
  • Red sprinkles
  • Cello bags that measured 6 x 3.75 inches

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. While the oven is preheating lay out your pretzels on a baking sheet.

Add a white chocolate candy melt to the top of each one.

Bake in the oven for 4 minutes. As soon as you take them out add the red sprinkles. Just fling them randomly around.

Add in a black sixlet to each.

Let fully cool. As they cool start printing and getting the printable ready :)

These print out on a standard sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 printing paper and there are six per sheet. All you would need to do is print, cut them out and attach to bags. I used cello bags that measured 6 x 3.75 inches. I fold the tops over and then attach the printable with a staple.

Perfect favor for Halloween!!!

The printable can be printed out from {{HERE}}

Thank you and I hope you enjoy!!
