In A Word Yum ~ Thanksgiving Treats

I’m not only a baking fanatic, but I swoon over a cute treat presentation. Bags, boxes, wrapping – they all add to the fun experience of giving or receiving a treat. This month I’ve been sharing lots of handful-sized Thanksgiving treats, like the disappearing Rice Krispie Pie or the yummy Gooey Caramel-Choco Chex Mix. For this post, it’s not so much about what’s in the bag or box, as the bag or box itself. Stay with me now…it’s all going to come together flawlessly, and you’re going to have happy kids, impressed guests, and a damn good-looking tabletop.

Thanksgiving Treats ~ Pie Boxes

IN A WORD YUM PIE BOXES

This Rice Krispie Pie recipe was so good, it lasted on the kitchen table for a solid hour. It ended up in bellies of all sizes. Hypothetically, let’s say you want to try to get these Thanksgiving treats wrapped up and in your guest’s hands as they walk out the door. These pie boxes are easy printable pdfs, and are quick to assemble: trust me. Print on thicker paper, and use a sturdy tape to hold the seams together. Remember, they are pie boxes, so yes you can fit a small piece of leftover pumpkin or apple pie, or whatever is left on the table.

Thanksgiving Treats ~ Splatter Box

THE SPLATTERED CRAFT BOX

These are simple, brown Paper Mart craft boxes (tuck top in natural) which are – like all good things in life – available online. Of course, I needed to splatter a couple of fall colors to make it seasonal and “street”. These boxes are a great size for the Peanut Butter Chocolate Bark, just make sure you plastic-wrap the chunks in case of melting.

 

Thanksgiving Treats ~ Gobble Grab Bags

GOBBLE GRAB BAGS FOR THANKSGIVING TREATS

I love how these grab bags turned out! I call ’em Gobble Gobble Ombre bags. They’ll give your Thanksgiving table a slight urban twist. I especially love the street-wise turkey with a stick of hay sticking out of his beak. These are a pdf file that can easily be printed out and pasted on a treat bag, like the ones I found at Paper Mart. Or, it might be easier to print on a white sticker for a no-mess application. What do you stick in these? Gooey Choco-Caramel Chex Mix of course, and like popcorn there are tons of little bites that’ll fit.

    I clicked on both the pdf links and they look super easy. I think I’ll wrangle the kids to help me put a few together. Maybe they’ll even add their names to the boxes and bags, too. Thanks Cindy!

      Great idea – grab a sharpie and let them add their own signature.

    What a cute way to send home leftovers! Assuming you have left overs! LOL my family is a crowd of pie eaters, so we might be sending home leftover dinner rolls in these boxes!

      You really can fit anything in there, heck stick a turkey sandwich in there (yum, I love the leftovers).

  • I totally get it! The presentation is SO important and it’s always fun to present homemade goodies in such pretty packaging 🙂 You always have such fun ideas and I get so inspired to make something when I see your stuff 😉 XO

      Thanks Dawn! Some DIY stuff is harder than it looks, but this truly is easy. I love the packaging too.
