Why is it "nous partirons à la chasse aux friandises rather than "des friandaise"?

This relates to:
À + le = au, à + les = aux, de + le = du, de + les = des (contractions of articles) -

Hi Ann,

It is because the expression is -  'la chasse à quelque chose'

so you can have:

Une chasse à l'homme = a man hunt

La chasse à l'ours = bear hunt

La chasse au trésor = treasure hunt

La chasse aux oeufs Easter egg hunt

etc...

Hope this helps!
