- 2 slices of bread
- slice of cheese
- candy eyes
- Spread mayo on one slice of bread and layer ham, then the second slice of bread on top to make a sandwich.
- Spread mayo on top of second slice and top with cheese (the mayo will help the cheese stay put!).
- Use a leaf-shaped cookie cutter to cut sandwich and decorate with candy eyes and a small piece of ham for a mouth.
- boxed cupcake batter, prepared
- red frosting
- pretzel sticks
- green gummy leaf candy
- Line a cupcake baking pan with red baking cups. Pour prepared cupcake batter into cups.
- Roll tin foil into small stem-like sticks and place next to baking cups in baking pan to create a small indent (this helps create the apple shape. Bake cupcakes in oven.
- Once cupcakes are done, set aside to cool.
- When completely cooled, decorate cupcakes with red frosting.
- Add a pretzel stick to the indented side for the stem and top with a green gummy leaf.
- Hershey Kisses
- mini chocolate chips
- melted chocolat
- Nutter Butter cookie bites
- Separate sandwich cookies and top peanut butter side with a Hershey Kiss. (You can use melted chocolate or more peanut butter to glue together if there's not enough peanut butter on the cookie.)
- Dip a toothpick into the melted chocolate to add a little dot on the other side of the cookie and stick on a mini chocolate chip.
"Pumpkin Pie" Cheese and Crackers
- cheddar cheese, cut into wedges
- butter cracker
- triangle-shaped biscuit cracker
- cracker sticks
- whipped cream cheese
- Use whipped cream cheese to "glue" cheese and crackers together in the shape of a slice of pie. First, to triangle biscuit with wedge of cheese. Stick butter cracker to the other end and top with a cracker stick. Top with a little whipped cream cheese for the "whipped cream."
