Thanksgiving Treat Snacks

1395281_677472558937450_1020748483_nYou will need Oreos, chocolate chips (for melting), Flipz chocolate covered pretzels, candy corn, royal icing and black gel food coloring

-sort pretzels to pull all the whole ones and put them in a triangle fashion just like the picture shows so they are ready to go – you will need to act fast and a second pair of hands will be very helpful because you will have to do this before the chocolate cools

-put the candy corn (or what you will use for the nose to one side to have easy access

-melt chocolate or candy melt in a candy melting pot or follow instructions for microwave. Try the richness of using real chocolate – once you are successful you will realize how easy (and better tasting) it is and will never go back to using candy melts again

-dip and roll the Oreo so all sides are covered and place one on top of each triangle of pretzels and push down

-quickly push down the candy corn

-pipe on white royal icing to form whites of eyes

-Pipe on black of eyes

Cupcake CAKE Pumpkin for Halloween with Oreos

 

We thought this was a great idea! Arrange orange colored frosted cupcakes to make a shape of a pumpkin. Then carefully ice across the entire shape to make one cohesive pumpkin. Use cut up Oreos and candy corns to give your creation an awesome design. Don’t forget a couple of cupcakes going up to make the stem. Here they are in the same orange frosting but you could do this is in a green, black or yellow frosting as well.
