Pumpkin Pretzels!

Do you need an easy pumpkin treat?
I love all the cute pretzel treats I've been seeing around the web..and since we're right smack in the middle of pumpkin season, I wanted to combine the two for an easy and fun edible craft.
 Roll out green fondant and cut with the leaf fondant cutter. Let air dry.
 Dip pretzel sticks in orange candy melts and let dry. Next, dip pretzel tip into melted chocolate chips. With the pretzel laying on a sheet of parchment paper, place the leaves against the top of pretzel and let dry.
Rainbow Chips :o)
 When pretzels are completely dry..decorate. Use a foodwriter pen to draw eyes and mouth. Using a small paintbrush, dip it in corn syrup and dab the back of a rainbow chip "nose". Now just place it the on the pumpkin face.
Sweet little purty pumpkins!

Fall Cookies!

Happy First Day of Fall Cookies!
My hubby and I spent this wonderful first day of fall in the beautiful North Carolina mountains! The leaves have not turned yet, although I did see a couple with just a smidge of color. We visited our favorite apple house..Barber's Orchard in Balsam, N.C. You're barely out of the car before the amazing smells beg you to find the source..and fast! We always get our little sample (or two) of the fresh apple cider and quickly claim our place in line to buy their delicious apple treats...Apple cakes, turnovers, muffins, pies, cookies, mmmmm all good! Next week will find me in the kitchen baking up my own fresh apple pie with the Golden Delicious & Jonagolds we brought home. And now, for some sweet cookies. Happy Fall Y'all!
I used this recipe for the cookies. I substituted almond flavor in place of the vanilla and orange gel color in place of the green.
I use very little flour as this makes it easier to re-roll the scraps of dough.
 Baking your cookies on a parchment paper lined pan makes clean-up so much easier.
For the smaller leaves cookies, paint with corn syrup and dip in sprinkles.
I ended up putting three colors of the sprinkles in a small bowl with which to dip the cookies. They look more fall-ish this way.

For the larger leaves ...
..and decorate with the micro leaf sprinkles. Then just dab a little of the frosting to the bottoms of the smaller cookie and attach to the larger one for a double-decker cookie!

Wishing You All 
A Sweet Fall

Rice Krispie Treats Sundaes!

 Rice Krispie Treats Sundaes!
Candy Corn flavored M&M Rice Krispie Treats to be exact!!
Do you love Candy Corn? Me TOO! Not only the sweet & sugary taste..but the colors. The orange and yellow are the very picture of fall, and I'm loving the preview of autumn temps we're getting here in Atlanta.
 As for the Candy Corn flavored M&Ms,
 I had never tried them.. until today. Yum-o-licious!!
Is that too corny? ;o)
Ahh..the happy colors! Besides the candies below (which include: Candy Corn M&Ms, Sixlets, Jelly Belly Candy Corn, Wilton Candy Melts, and Sprinkles), for your Rice Krispie Treats, you will need:
 Rice Krispies cereal, mini-marshmallows, butter, non-stick spray, and cupcake liners.
 I used the adorable yellow, Wilton Ruffled baking cups.
Don't you just love the Candy Corn M&Ms?
We can't forget the most important ingredient for a perfect sundae..Sprinkles! I found these sweet little ones at Target in a variety shaker. LOVE!
Ain't he cute? :o)
Candy Corn Face!
I used the entire bag of M&Ms in the Rice Krispie Treats.
 I chopped only part of the candies leaving the others whole. 
Melt the butter on low heat, add the bag of marshmallows stirring until melted. Stir in the M&M candies, then the cereal.  I sprayed a little non-stick spray on my hands before forming the cereal mixture into balls.
The pretty liners..
These really are quite tasty! with ALL Rice Krispie Treats, they are best served as fresh as possible.
 By that, I mean WARM! 
Add your yummy toppings. Melted orange Candy Melts,
candy corn, sixlets, sprinkles and a sweet m&m on top.

 M&Ms Candy Corn Rice Krispie Treats
6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
10 oz. bag mini-marshmallows
4 tablespoons butter
1 9.9oz. bag Candy Corn flavored M&Ms
On low heat, melt butter. Add marshmallows, stirring until melted. Remove from heat. Mix in candy and then stir in cereal.  
Form into balls. Melt orange Candy Melts. Top treats with the melted candy and toppings.
Happy Fall Y'all!

Notebook Paper Marshmallows

 Notebook Paper Marshmallows!
I love these Stacker Marshmallows!
 I wanted to make a "Back To School" craft and thought how cool it would be to make notebook paper cookies. But..that had already been done. And so, since I love marshmallows, this was my next thought. I googled and could not find where any had been posted, which made me happy...yay!! I'm sure most of you already know about Meaghan's adorable marshmallows over at the decorated cookie. She has some great tips on drawing on the puffy little pillows. So, armed with markers and mallows, here are the super easy sheets of sugar!
 I used Jet-Puffed StackerMallows, Food Color Pens and a Ruler.
I also used a Smiley Stamp.
 I used the ruler to keep my lines straight. As you can see, I just eye-balled the space between the lines.
 Now just draw the red line...I'm reminded of those pesky pop quizes..from 30 years ago?!
 Color the stamp with a marker and gently stamp the marshmallow.
That's it! You get an A-plus. ;o)

Thank you so much for visiting my blog!
Have a Sugartown Sweets Kind of Day!

*edit* To make the Smore's Pops pictured below, dip marshmallow in chocolate, let harden. Then dip just the tip of teddy bear's feet in chocolate and hold on marshmallow a couple of minutes until it sets.
