Hostess Snack Cakes (Zingers, DingDongs, etc…)
Icing bags and pens
Halloween themed sprinkles
Gummy worms
Candy eyes
Pretzel sticks


Set out a platter of Hostess Snack Cakes and plenty of icing bags and pens as well as Halloween themed sprinkles and licorice. Have your guests be creative on their own! For example, make worms come out of your Hostess Cupcakes by “drilling” a hole with a chopstick then placing half a gummy worm crawling out. Make creepy crawling insects with Zingers and Ding Dogs by adding candy eyes and using pretzel sticks for legs. Take a Hostess Cupcake and use a knife to make a mouth and create different creepy faces!
