Oreo Crows

Before a family get together I spend a lot of time on Pinterest looking for the perfect recipe to try. Last fall I made these Oreo Crows for Halloween. I did not take any pictures when I made these so I borrowed this one from Pinterest.

Oreo Crows

You will need:

  • Oreos
  • Candy corn
  • Wilton Candy Eyeballs
  • Frosting of your choice
  • Licorice wheels (cut into halves)

How To:

  1. Open up an Oreo and place half a licorice wheel on either side.
  2. Squeeze frosting into the middle of the Oreo so that it will close again.
  3. Add two Wilton Candy Eyeballs to the front of the Oreo with a dab of frosting.
  4. Add a Candy Corn beak with a dab of frosting.
  5. Before you move them let the frosting harden a little so that they will stay together.
  6. Enjoy!

Guilt-Free Pumpkin Muffins

Calling all pumpkin lovers! If you have 45 minutes free you have enough time to try these. Three ingredients is all it takes to make these tasty and moist pumpkin muffins. The best thing is that they are Guilt-Free.

You will need:PM Ingredients

      • 1 box of Spice Cake Mix
      • 1 can of Pure Pumpkin (I prefer Libby’s)
      • 4 oz of Cinnamon Apple Sauce
      • Mini muffin baking pan
      • Baking Non-Stick Spray

Directions:

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and spray your mini muffin pan with baking non-stick spray. I prefer the PAM Baking Spray — it is the best thing I’ve ever used. When making cakes in a bundt pan I have always had them fall apart — since using PAM I haven’t had that problem. I used Giant brand baking spray for this and did not like it at all.
  • Take all of your ingredients (cake mix, can of pumpkin, & apple sauce) and mix them together in one bowl until well combined. I know that you want to read the directions on the back of the cake mix box and add more ingredients…don’t! I promise this recipe is fool proof.

Not Mixed
Mixture

  • Scoop the mixture into your mini muffin tin and fill until 2/3 full. I never use cupcake liners unless I am going to take these somewhere. They are eaten so quickly that it would be a waste.

Pan

  • Bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees. Store in an air-tight container once cooled completely.

** This recipe is easy to customize. You can substitute in any type of cake mix or apple sauce. It can also be adapted for large muffins or loafs — just adjust the cooking time **
