Feeling Candy Corny?


Fall is finally here!! So excited to finally break out my new boots, leggings and cozy sweaters! I don't eat sweets often so I'm not a fan of baking. I would rather treat myself to one of these cupcakes than make my own. But there are a few things I love to make in October that involve my favorite candy of all time, the candy corn! These would also be really easy and fun to have your children make..........


Heather's Spooky Chex Mix

Candy Corn and Pumpkins
Rice Chex Cereal
Salted Spanish Peanuts
Halloween M&M's
Pretzels**
(**I use Goldfish pretzels since they are similar in size to the other ingredients)

Just mix and EAT!! No baking required.



Pumpkin Cookie Cakes

My friend Megan taught me how to make these, so simple!!

1 large can of 100% pure Pumpkin (NOT the Pie filling)
1 Box Spice Cake Mix
1 tub of Cream Cheese Frosting
Candy Corns

Pre-heat oven to 350. Mix the pumpkin and the cake mix together. Drop spoon-fulls onto a cookie sheet and bake until done (around 15-20 minutes). Cool, then ice with cream cheese frosting and garnish with candy corns.
