One more post today. My two boys are teenagers, so they don't go door to door anymore on Halloween. I wanted to give them a little something in celebration of this spooky day! They both love Hershey Chocolate Bars, so I wrapped them with some design paper and added some ribbon along with a sweet Halloween image and some fun money! A quick and easy small gift.
