Tepee Treat Comments
Our first round of Tepee treats turned out well!! We mixed powdered sugar and water to make some thick icing. We kept adding powdered sugar until the icing was so think it was hard to stir. The kids dipped various candies into the icing and stuck them to their sugar cones. I bought multi colored twizzlers that we cut into smaller pieces, multi colored life savers, gumdrops, and skittles. I tried not to get Christmas colored candy. The kids had lots of fun, and the best part was getting to lick the "glue" off their fingers!! We are going to put the tepees by their plates as a sort of placecard holder at our feast on Fri.
We also made our corn muffins today. I bought jiffy corn muffin mix. All you need to do is add an egg and 1/3 cup of milk to the mix. We used mini muffin pans. They turned out well and will be enjoyed by all at the feast!!
"Thanksgiving table, this is it.
And a chair where each may sit.
For each a plate, a cup, a spoon.
We'll eat and eat 'til afternoon!"
