No Tricks Just Treats

Need a quick, super easy, delectable Halloween treat?  
Here ya go!

Seriously.  I made these in less than an hour.  
All you need:
Mason jars and lids
Free cute jar label from Lauren McKinsey Designs 
and some kind of treat. 

I attached a cute little tag, but really isn't needed if you deliver in person.

My treat just happened to be... 

Soda Cracker Candy
35-40 soda crackers
1 cup butter or margarine
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 cups milk chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups coarsely chopped walnuts (if desired)
Other toppings if desired

Line a 15"x10"x1" (jelly roll) baking pan with foil and coat with non-stick cooking spray. Place crackers in rows on foil. In a saucepan melt butter; add the brown sugar and bring to a boil. Boil for 3-4 minutes. Pour over crackers and spread until completely covered. Bake at 350 degrees for 5 minutes. Remove from the oven.  Sprinkle chocolate chips over hot cracker/candy mixture. Spread chocolate. Add nuts if desired. Drizzle white choc on to (if desired)  Cool completely in refrigerator until chocolate is hard; remove candy from foil and break into pieces.

And there you go!

Another cute treat just for you...

An adorable Cabbage Patch Kid!

All Eyes On YOU! Primary Program Thank yous

Primary Sacrament Meeting Program...successfully complete!  
Our Primary Children did such a spectacular job with their parts, and especially the singing for the program.  We thought they deserved something fun to celebrate their hard work.  Because...ALL EYES WERE INDEED ON THEM!

Found this cute monster tag at Bloom Designs and tweaked it just a bit.

If you would like to print your own, just right click and save this picture and then print!

Added the googly eyes.

Using toothpicks made it much easier to adhere the eyes with glue.

Awesome, fun tags!

Filled a fun treat bag with favorite goodies.

100 bags with tags, somewhat quick and easy.  The googly eyes were the most fun to assemble, but took a bit of time.

We have the greatest children in our Primary.  
We're glad
