So Grateful for Thanksgiving

I LOVE Thanksgiving!   I really do, and I feel bad that this holiday, one in which we pause from our hectic, busy lives, to give thanks to God for all the blessings he gives to us each & every day, gets crowded out in all the commercialism of Halloween & Christmas.

I am hosting Thanksgiving at my house again this year (I enjoy this!) and I made these adorable little treat holders for each of my 13 guests.  I actually made some more to bring to my co-workers too!

Thanksgiving Treat HoldersHere is a close-up of just one treat holder.

Acorn Candy TreatsAdorable little candy acorns.    Here’s a better shot of the acorns coming off the  assembly line:

Acorn Candy treatsThese were so easy to make too!  Can you tell what they’re made from?  A Hershey Kiss.  The kiss is topped with a peanut butter wafer then a peanut butter chip.  I ‘glued’ all the candy pieces together with melted peanut butter chips.  So easy and so darn cute!  I suppose the taste combination is incredible too!  But, unbelievably, I haven’t eaten one.  I can just imagine popping one in my mouth, and the chocolate & peanut butter taste combination melting together, yum, yum, yum!

And my gift to you this Thanksgiving, since I can’t make and give a treat to each and every one of my dear blog readers, is the instructions on how to make this yourself. CLICK HERE for the PDF file with step-by-step directions and photos.

It could easily be adapted for Christmas, Valentine’s Day, a birthday or any occasion.

If you would like to make this, I would appreciate if you would shop on my on-line store if you need any supplies.  Don’t forget about our ongoing Holiday Sale and our Weekly Deals.  Be sure to check these out before placing an order.

Please leave me a comment and let me know how you like this and if you plan to make them yourself too.  I love to hear from you and treasure each and every comment you leave for me.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving, and Happy Stampin’!



Spread the love!
