The hot glue of the food world?
Oh yes. Just like hot glue, it's a fix all.
And thy name be....
I was telling Cassidy all about how I made Kyle and Reed's cookies for their Thanksgiving feast and I said, "Yeah, and I just hot glued them together."
But with chocolate frosting's magical stickiness, it's easy to see how I could make the mistake.
I found these cookies on Pintrest and they were a huge hit with both the kids and the moms (my two target demographics).
The most time consuming thing about these "acorn" cookies was unwrapping the Hershey's Kisses.
Take a mini Nutter Butter, chocolate frosting a mini chocolate chip on top, a Hershey's Kiss on the bottom and you're done.
The kids went crazy over the turkey cookies.
I saw some cuter ones online, but these were the simplest.
And you know my motto passed down from my mom: "make it easy on yourself."
The "recipe" called for the body to be made of a chocolate covered cherry, but I thought these toasted coconut marshmallows would be cuter. (And I was right.)
Why all the turkeys with a half tail?
Well, letting 3 year olds help carry in the groceries resulted in a package full of broken cookies.
This one is just as easy as the acorns: a package of Fudge Stripes, toasted coconut marshmallows, and candy corns. Glue together with chocolate frosting.
Kyle and Reed went on and on about what a "good cooker" I am.
Maybe I should start telling them how beautiful and thin I am too!
