Easy Pumpkin-Shaped S'Mores


If you're still looking for a quick and and easy treat for your Thanksgiving Kids' Table, these Pumpkin-Shaped S'mores I shared over on Landeelu last month might be just what you need.

S’mores are a favorite of mine, and this cute sweet and salty version goes together easily with a few ingredients and a microwave. Wrap them up in little cellophane bags for a quick and easy party favor for any fall event.

Here’s what you will need:
  • Jumbo Marshmallows (cut in half)
  • Orange Candy Melts (I used Wilton Brand)
  • Ritz Crackers
  • Pretzel Sticks
Optional Supplies:  Lollipop Sticks, ribbon, pretzel rods, or green Twizzlers
First, melt orange candy melts according to package directions. Dip half of the Ritz cracker tops in melted candy. Set aside to cool.
To make a s’more, place half of a large marshmallow, cut-side-down, on a plain Ritz cracker. Heat in microwave until the marshmallow puffs. Add a pretzel stick for a stem and a lollipop stick if desired. Top with a candy-coated Ritz and enjoy! (Note: Microwaves vary so watch carefully. Mine puffed in 12-13 seconds in a 1200 watt oven.)

Free Fall Photo Download



Autumn is such a beautiful season, but it passes far too quickly. In fact, we woke up this past week to our first taste of winter, and it's not going to warm up any time soon! It's even colder today with temperatures in the single digits. Brrr.

Even though winter white has replaced the array of fall colors out my window, I can't say I'm ready to say goodbye to fall just yet. So, here on the blog, I hope you'll indulge me if we let autumn stay around just a little longer.

I'm keeping the colors of fall in sight in our home by printing a few seasonal photos.  I added a few words of inspiration to one of my favorites:



The Just Bloom Photo Download I shared over the summer has been popular, so I thought I'd share this one with you too! You can download your own copy of my Be the Change photo here. (Personal use only, please.)
