and Rudolph of course! Marshmallows make great reindeer. All you need is large marshmallows, pretzel sticks, mini pretzels, icing, and m&m's. Simply break your mini pretzels into antlers and stick into the top of a large marshmallow. Add pretzel sticks for legs, and use a dab of icing to adhere your nose (m&m). You could always add eyes using mini m&m's or mini chocolate chips. Have fun making Christmas memories and let your imaginations run wild!

Candy Cottage is a great way for children with food allergies to share in the holiday fun! Traditional gingerbread houses can present problems for those with allergies to eggs, gluten, wheat, or a number of other items. With the Candy Cottage, you can create a safe environment for a child to make wonderful Christmas memories!

So I hope you saved your extra candy corn, because I have an adorable use for the leftover goodies..."Candy" Corn on the Cob! I know, I know, its almost too much. I first saw the idea on an Instructables blog. I decided to make my cob completely edible. Rather than using raw sugar cookie dough, I bought marzipan, which you can find in the baking aisle. The cob didn't take long, and was very cute. I can't wait to add it to my Thanksgiving Candy Cottage.
Candy Corn on the Cob
Microwave your marzipan just long to soften it a tad, 20 seconds or so. After it is softened, simply add your candy corn. Continue to shape your marzipan into a cob shape as you press your candy. My cob took less than 5 minutes to make. Enjoy!

Inspired by all of the beautiful colors outside, I made Harvest Flowers to celebrate Fall. These tasty flowers are easy to make, would look great decorating any Thanksgiving Cottage, and leftovers would look lovely on a dessert table. Once again, get the kids involved in helping you. Little hands can easily sort your M&M's in search of fall colors.
