I have a just a few more Scarecrow treats to share with you during Scarecrow Party week. How about making a bowl of Scarecrow Crunch. It is a fun mix of family favorites, and all have reasons to be part of the mix.
Here is what you can find in Scarecrow Crunch
Pretzel Sticks (scarecrow poles or fence posts)
Mini Marshmallows (the clouds in the sky, out in the corn field)
Candy Pumpkins (for the fall season)
Candy Corn (a sweet version of a scarecrow's favorite veggie that he is supposed to protect from the crows)
Fall color M & Ms (okay I could not think of a reason for those, M & Ms just taste great in everything!)
I have been munching on this stuff all day.. It is good!
My Scarecrow Cookie Pops in Hay Bales looked a little differently on paper than they do in real life. Even though I visualized something a little bit different, I am still pretty happy with how they turned out. I am still not sure what to use for a hat. I had originally planned on using the gum drops for a hat, but they were too big and heavy. I then thought to add it under to the cookie to look like a bandana or shirt. My advice is to add the gum drop on the top side of the stick BEFORE you have added the cookie. They make a bit of a sticky mess if you add them after like I did. I had to wipe off the pop stick every single time. The only thing I had on hand for the hair was Cinnamon Roll Mini Wheat cereal. The pieces were very tiny, so they broke into tiny pieces. Next time I would make sure to have a larger size Mini Wheat for longer straw hair. I like the look of the Rice Krispie Treat hay bales. The weight of the Oreo cookie did make the pop a bit top heavy, so you might have secure the stick with some extra chocolate.
I think the scarecrow in the back looks a little creepy, but I am sure he will still make a yummy treat.
In case you missed any of the Scarecrow Party posts this week, here is another chance.
