TIPS FOR MAKING HALLOWEEN MIX:

  • Use Wilton candy melts for best results, the wafer chocolate melts the best. Add one teaspoon of coconut oil to other melted chocolate chips to help them melt and pour better.
  • Lay the chocolate covered treat on a parchment lined baking sheet for easy moving and transporting before the chocolate has hardened.
  • Place the chocolate in the fridge or freezer to completely cool before serving.

How long does boo mix last?

Store this yummy mix in a large freezer bag or airtight container for up to one month at room temperature. It can also be stored in the fridge to prevent the chocolate from melting or in the freezer for months.
