Chocolate Crinkle Turkey Cookies

These chocolate crinkle turkey cookies were an attempt to pull off using the holiday stencils. I thought using a different medium might help but the powdered sugar was no more forgiving than the frosting from the original Thanksgiving cookie post.

Thanksgiving Cookies

 Sorry for the delay in Thanksgiving posts. Blogger decided that I post too many pictures and let me know I was over my 1GB limit and wouldn't let me post unless I bought more space. Funny how everything is only free up to a point, right?
 These cut-out cookies were frosted with a meringue (think toasted marshmallow) and I attempted to frost them using a stencil. It wasn't exactly a huge success.

Marshmallow Flavors

 I saw these marshmallows at Wal-Mart the other day and just had to buy them. Anyone who knows me knows that I love marshmallows, and caramel swirled marshmallows? Who could resist!

White Chocolate Peanut Butter Saltine Crackers

 Once again, sometimes you have to get creative when you're craving something sweet. This idea was combined from two recipes I've seen but never tried: One, a chocolate bark that used broken pieces of saltines to add a salty crust, and the other a recipe where you frost Ritz crackers with peanut butter and dip them in white chocolate.
 These little "sandwiches" are so good, and rich enough that you only want to eat one or two. Unless you have a glass of milk, then you could eat them for DAYS.

Cinnamon Sugar Pretzels

 Being in law school, I never really have a lot of food in the house. I'm not exactly sure if that's because I'm poor or because I don't have time to cook. Maybe a bit of both? Anyways, sometimes when you're craving something sweet for dessert, you have to get a bit creative. But as long as you have a half-eaten bag of pretzels, cinnamon, sugar, and oil/butter you can whip up this sweet and salty snack in less than 20 minutes. You're welcome.

Pumpkin Rice Crispies

This post if for my "favorite sister" Stephanie, who informed me today that it is NOVEMBER and Halloween was two weeks ago! (It's crazy how fast this year is going...) But these pumpkins are fall, right? And it's not technically winter until December, right? No?
Okay, I know these pumpkins are a hott mess. I made them with leftover rice crispies from the candy corn rice crispie treats and I just wanted to see how it would look. I only made a few (they were just for me). They aren't great, but you get the idea.

Halloween Kit Cupcakes

Here are some of the other Halloween cupcakes I made when I made the spiderweb cupcakes. The white chocolate spiderwebs were pretty but took time and I didn't know if they would turn out okay or if they would break.
I cheated and used these cute cupcake picks. But look at that tail, can you blame me?

Pumpkin Pretzels

 Just in time to wrap up fall, here are some super easy white chocolate covered "pumpkin" pretzels.
These were made with some leftover white chocolate I had and would look much better with actual orange candy melts. (Unless coral pumpkins are your thing).
