It has been a crazy busy day, I just wanted to get a post in before heading down the rd. Have some goodies you may want to try out this weekend. :-) We started by making Pumpkin Patch Rocky Rd Brownies. This alone will put you in a sugar coma, best with water or a big glass of milk LOL
1 box fudge brownie mix water, veg oil and eggs called for on brownie box
1 cup peanuts
3 cups mini marshmallows
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
1/3 cup vanilla whipped ready to spread frosting (from 12 oz container)
8 drops green food coloring
24 small pumpkin shaped candies
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Spray or grease bottom only of 13 x 9 inch pan. Make brownie batter as directed on box, except stir in peanuts. Spread in pan
Bake 24 to 26 mins. or until toothpick inserted 2 inches from the sides of pan comes out almost clean. Immediately sprinkle warm brownies with marshmallows and chocolate chips.
Bake about 3 more mins. or until marshmallows are puffed. Cool 30 mins.
In small microwavable bowl, microwave frosting uncovered on high for 15 seconds, stir in food coloring. Drizzle over bars. Cool completely, about 1 hour or so. Cut into squares, top with pumpkin candy...Enjoy!
Next since Kathleen is allergic to eggs, I had to find a snack for her. So we made witch cookies.
Wickedly Fun witches
Oblong peanut butter filled sandwich cookies
1/2 cup vanilla creamy ready to spread frosting
9 drops green food coloring
miniature m and m's (or other small round baking pieces)
Milk chocolate bars
Line cookie sheet with wax paper or use a plate, depending on how many you plan to make.
In a food storage bag mix frosting with food coloring, cut hole in the corner
Decorate into a witches face with a hat. Enjoy!!!
Today we also talked about hay and I asked Kathleen some questions before our project. I asked her:
What does it smell like? Hay Ride!, good smell, paper?
What does it feel like? Kinda sticky, crumbling in my hands, kinda smooth
What is it used for? Hay ride, horses, cows
Comes from? Hay ride and Farmers. :-)
Gee, you think maybe my daughter enjoys hay rides? Love the thoughts of a 4 year old. :-)
We also explored the texture and decided to paint with pieces of hay.
We're heading out soon, so I hope to try to catch up some more tonight! Mom, if you're reading this the goodies are coming with us :-) Lori if you're reading this you may get to enjoy the brownies at our next dinner. :-) Have a great weekend everyone! Welcome to my new followers and I will be around to visit you too!
