Trick-or-Treating and Candy Corn Rice Krispies














Here's to hoping next year there are less bugs, a toddler in a better mood, and a costume with no head piece ha! I had it all envisioned how trick or treating would be all so perfect this year, well not exactly how it all went down! Even so we were surrounded by great neighbors/friends and their cute little dressed up kiddos! All the crying, head scratching, and fit throwing was all worth it for the few times my little donkey sweetly said trick or treat and thank you with a cute smile as he received his candy! By the end of the night he had found his one and only and was just smitten, holding hands and going wherever she led him. It is too cute watching these two together, Carson just loves Logan and Logan just love Carson!







These peanut Butter Candy Corn Rice Krispies were so fun to make! Carsons teachers said they were a big hit at school, and the kids loved them ;)



3 table spoons of Butter
1 package (10 oz., about 40) regular marshmallows
