Peppermint Patty Brownies

Okay, I'm sitting in the waiting room at the dentist, waiting for my big sister Jasmine to come out, when my mom showed me this magazine with this brownie recipe using peppermint patties. I said "oooooh, can I make it for my blog"?  Of course she said yes. So here it is.
1 Box of brownie mix
Non-stick cooking spray
16-20 peppermint Patties

Preheat the oven to 350
Spray a pan with non-stick spray
First bake the brownie mix according to the back of the box
I only had to add the mix, water and eggs

So when you have mixed everything together, Pour half the mix in the pan and add the peppermint patties

Then, pour the remaining brownie mix on top of the peppermint patties

Finally bake according to brownie box directions. I baked mine for 25-30 minutes.
Let cool for about 30 minutes
Then dig in to this minty treat.
Mmmm soo minty!

Wormy Apple Croissants

Gooey yet oh so wormy.  Perfect for a Halloween treat.These apple croissants are really fun to make. It was a little messy but it was soo worth it. Hope you enjoy these as much as I did.

1 granny smith apple
1 (8 ounce) package crescent rolls
1/4 caramel topping
gummy worms or bugs

Use a vegetable peeler to peel the apple ( this was kinda tricky so you can let a grown-up do this part). On a cutting board slice apples into Fourths with a small paring knife.

Cut the core out and dice(cut) the apples into small chucks

Place apples chucks in a small sauce pan and cover with water.Cook over medium heat for 3- to 5 minutes or until apples or soft. ( Be sure to pay attention, you don't want them to get too soft or else you will have applesauce)


On an ungreased baking sheet spread out the triangles of the crescent roll dough.

In a small bowl, use a mixing spoon to mix the apples and the caramel topping.

Drop 1 tablespoon of the apple mixture into the middle of each triangle.
Fold the dough over the filling and continue to roll into a crescent shape. Firmly press the edges together.

When croissants have cooled, add the gummies and drizzle caramel topping over each croissant.

And there you have it, bugs and all.
Remember to refrigerate any leftovers. I doubt there will be any though. These are bug-a-licious!

Wichy Wands

How do witches cast spells? With their witchy wands of course. These wands taste soo good, believe me you won't need a magic spell to make them disappear. This treat is a little messy but soo much fun!

30 caramels
1 tablespoon butter
2 teaspoons milk
1 (10-ounce) bag of pretzel rods
3/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
non-stick cooking spray
baking sheet
microwave safe bowls
coffee mug
mixing spoon


Spray the non stick cooking spay onto the baking sheet. Set aside.

Microwave the caramels, butter, and milk in a mirowave safe bowl for 40 seconds (watch carefully)

Stir and microwave an extra 30 seconds. Be sure there are no lumps.

Now take one of the pretzel rods and use a mixing spoon to coat a little over a half of  the pretzel with the caramel. Place the pretzel rod on the baking sheet and allow to cool.

Put the chocolate chips in the coffee mug, and  microwave for 30 seconds. (Please watch carefully because I burned it the first time and had to do it again. I also used a liquid measuring cup since I burned the chocolate in the mug. Opps.)Once the caramel has cooled, dip the pretzels in the chocolate covering not even half of it allowing some of the caramel to show. I used the back of a spoon which it easier to spread. 

 Cover the chocolate part of the pretzel with sprinkles (my favorite part) I put a bowl underneath to catch the falling sprinkles.

Place the pretzels on a tray and allow chocolate to cool at room tempeture for 2 hours or in refrigerator for 20 minutes.

Phewww! Finally finished. That took awhile but I did it. Now time for the best part...yum yum!

Easy Peasy Halloween Spooky Hand

This fun treat is sooo easy to make. You can really make this with no help at all.  A good idea to do with this hand is to place it in the candy bowl standing straight up or give out as treats. You can even make some at a halloween party with your friends.
 Have fun making this, I did.


1 plastic glove with all five fingers
1 bag of microwave popcorn
6 pieces of candy corn( sorry I have 5 in my picture)
piece of ribbon (any color, to tie the end) 

First take the glove and put a piece of candy in each finger

Next take the popcorn and fill the fingers and the middle of the hand

Then take the ribbon and tin in a knot and then a bow.

Finally glue the last piece of candy to the middle of the bow.

See I told you it was easy.

Turkeys in a Blanket

1 can (8oz) refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
4 Turkey hot dogs
4 cheese singles


Heat oven to 375. Unroll crescent roll dough, separate into 8 triangles. Cut each triangles lengthwise in half.

Cut each hot dog lengthwise in half, then cut each piece crosswise in half.

Cut each piece of cheese into 4 strips.

Place 1 hot dog piece and 1 cheese strip  at the wider end of the dough triangle, and roll it up.

4 small, clean paintbrushes
Butter or margarine (optional)


Divide milk among four cups or bowls

Stir a few drops of food coloring into each bowl or cup to make 4 different colors of "paint"

With paintbrushes, paint fun designs on the slice of bread

 Pop it in the toaster
(Be sure to put it on the lightest tempeture)

When the toast is ready, add some butter if you like,
and enjoy!
