It's simple and sweet, a Halloween treat: Witches' Brew!
Combining apple cider drink mix, Halloween candy treats and a free printable gift tag, Witches Brew is easy to make and give.
Use small black salsa bowls from the Dollar Store to make Witches Brew in a Cauldron, or use creative packet-folding and a licorice rope "broomstick" to make broom-shaped Witches Brew packets.
Add free printable gift tags or bag toppers to make an easy Halloween craft.
Add Witches Brew to Halloween BOO baskets, share with co-workers or make it in multiples for Halloween party favors.
To make Witches Brew in a Cauldron, you'll need:
For each broom-shaped packet of Witches Brew, you'll need:
Place cider packets and gummi worms in small black salsa bowl. (We got ours at the Dollar Store!)
Wrap cauldron with cellophane or plastic wrap. Tie with ribbon or raffia. Attach printable gift tag to complete the gift.
For each packet of Witches' Brew, turn down top corners of drink mix packet, forming a broom shape.
On the back side, tape a wrapped Twizzlers-brand licorice stick so that it extends over the top of the drink packet like a broomstick.
Place the drink packet "broomstick" inside a clear plastic treat bag or food storage bag. Add Gummi-brand worms and seasonal candy decorations to the treat bag.
Secure bag with ribbon or raffia. Attach a printable gift tag or bag topper, or create your own tag using the poem below.

When Autumn leaves begin to fly,
A Harvest Moon shines full and high.
Cold wind chills you to the bone?
Do what spooks have always known!
Grab a cauldron (or a cup!)
Add mix and water, stir it up.
Garnish with a worm or two:
A warming cup of Witches' Brew!
