Think Ahead To Thanksgiving

We thought we’d help give you a jump start at quick and very easy ideas for Thanksgiving. It’s never too early to gather those kinds of ideas for crunch time.

1- Turkey Cupcakes - just go ahead and buy bakery cupcakes to make this really simple!!


This quick and sweet idea is from Angie at the Country Chic Cottage. She uses Jet Puff Marshmallows, but I think candy corn would work just as well. She also makes the cupcakes from scratch, but hey, go out and buy a dozen as the crunch comes on! She links you to the candy corn marshmallows on Amazon. You can buy the candy eyes at any craft store like Hobby Lobby, JoAnn’s, or Michael’s. You can find her post and recipe here. Thank you Angie! We love quick and sweet ideas!!
