Quick and Fun Kid-Friendly Autumn Treats

Acorn Donut Holes
Cook's notes: Easy no bake autumn treat.
~ Glazed doughnut holes
~ Chocolate Sprinkles and/or Crumbled Toffee Bits
~ Pretzel Sticks
~ Nutella Spread (you can use peanut butter or chocolate frosting too)

1.) Spoon out Nutella, sprinkles, toffee crumbles, and pretzel sticks into four separate bowls.

2.) Dip the top 1/3 of the donut hole into the Nutella, then choose either the toffee crumbles or the sprinkles and dip the Nutella covered area of the donut hole into those
3.) Insert a pretzel stick in the top, center of the donut hole . . . this will be your acorn stem!
 Place on a lovely serving tray and there you go! 

Autumn Party Mix
You will need
1 bag of Autumn Mix
1 bag of Indian Corn
1 bag of Reese's Pieces
1 can of Party Peanuts
1 cup of Sunflower seeds
1 cup of Raisins
1 cup of Cran-Raisins
1 cup of Mini Pretzels

Mix and enjoy. 

Candy Corn Marshmallow Treats
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 16 ounces mini marshmallows
  • 1 cup candy corn, chopped coarsely
  • 1 cup M and M's
  • 6 cups crispy rice cereal
  • Using the microwave melt peanut butter and butter together in a large bowl.
  • Toss marshmallows in the melted mixture and microwave at 45 second intervals until marshmallows are just melted.
  • Stir in 6 cups of crispy rice cereal followed by candies.
  • Press mixture into the bottom of a lightly buttered 9 x 9 inch pan.
  • Allow to set. Cut, and enjoy!
Tip:The most difficult task in this recipe, besides not eating the whole pan, is cutting the candy corn. You don’t need to chop it small, just run a large knife or chopper/scraper through a pile of them a few times.
