I could eat cookies all winter long...
Chase's daycare was closed today so I got to spend a day in stay at home mom land. It was quite the adventure!
We made 3 Ingredient Pumpkin Cookies. They were AMAZING! I'm hooked.
1 Box of Spice Cake
1 15 oz can of Pumpkin
1 Cup of Chocolate Chips
(I also added 1/4 cup of flour because we are high altitude)
Mix ingredients together, drop onto cookie sheets and bake at 350 degrees. The recipe I used said about 10 minutes but my cookies took more like 14 minutes. I used the toothpick method to check them and they are perfect.
Here are a few cookies that Chase decorated.
I put a little bit of butter cream glaze on mine.
1 tablespoon of butter
Splash of milk
Mix together and drizzle on top.
Chase and I also decided to make Candy Corn bark.
1 bag of milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup of white chocolate chips
Melt the chocolate. Pour the milk chocolate in a pan (I lined mine with parchment paper) and then drizzle the white chocolate on top. Use a toothpick to marble to chocolate. Add Candy Corn on top. We were also going to use pretzels but I forgot to add them. The only thing that didn't work out is that I think the pan I used was a bit too small so the final result was thicker than I wanted.
Tomorrow it's back to work but it was a fun day at home...
