Happy Thanksgiving Everyone

I am starting to get in the Thanksgiving mood. Ready or not it's here! haha

Do you remember the Youtube site I was talking about the other day that shows you how to make holiday treats?  If not  log onto Youtube and type in HeyKayli or  click on one of the words in purple.

You will need:

 1 package of Fudge Striped cookies. 

 1 package of Reese's peanut butter cups. You will need the individually wrapped candies.
I suggest putting the candy in the refrigerator or freezer to firm the candy up. 
  NOTE: You can use a candy kiss to make a witches hat for Halloween. Also from HeyKayli. 

One tube of frosting and 1 package of tips if you do not already have them.  Kayli bought regular frosting and put yellow and red dye in it and mixed it until it was orange then put it in sandwich bags cutting of a corner as a make shift pastry bag.  I was lazy and thought that this would be easier.  The tube of frosting and the can of frosting were the same price.

Setting things out so it's easier to work with.

First Step: Make a fairly large ring of frosting around the hole in the cooking.

Second Step: Place the Reece's cup on top of the cookie with the larger side touching the cookie.

Third Step: Draw a line of frosting around the Reece's cup then draw a square for the buckle.

Fourth Step: Put the pilgrim hat's on a pretty tray.  Serve and enjoy!

 I tried to give one of the pilgrim hats to Michael and Blake on Wednesday night but, Blake wanted to wait until Thanksgiving day.  He said that they looked cool.  I was kind of surprised he said that.

I might make a couple of more things that Kayli made.  If I do I will take pictures of it and let you know how it went.

I hope your Thanksgiving day turns out better then expected.

I just saw these pics -- very cute, Jackie. I wish I would have been able to do something like this with the kiddos. I'm sure we'll be doing some treats for advent activities and I was thinking ninjabread men. Got the calendar finished and we are filling in the activities now. Got some great ideas from Focus on the Family website.
