Sometimes I have new ideas.
Sometimes, lots of times, I just stick with the tried and true.
Royal Icing is my tried and true. It helps me make a quick treat into something unique. Even if I don't have the time to make cut out cookies, I can throw together a box of brownies in an instant. I used my coffin cookie cutter and royal icing to dazzle up my quick brownies.
Pumpkin popcorn balls are tried and true. I blogged about them a couple years ago. And now they are an every year tradition. Easy. Fun. Done.
Target Dollar Aisle is my tried and true. Whenever I need a cute little container for treats or pops, Target is my BFF. I just have to make sure I get my pick early in the season.
Martha is my tried and true. She showed me how to make little pumpkins out of a small orange treat bags a few years ago. And I keep making them, every year. (I added a little leaf and tag).
Squeezie bottles are my tried and true. This pic is 2 years old, but it shows that even your littles can make gourmet caramel apples with the help of chocolate drizzles. Oh how I miss our cousin craft times. MOVE BAAAAACK!
Pinterest is my tried and true. I saw this pin and had to copy the branches coming out of the pumpkins. I got really crazy with the branches this year thanks to a friend who took me spooky branch hunting!
Sometimes it is just warm and cozy to stay inside my box and stick with what I know. Or copy what is on pinterest. :)
I get creative when I'm in the mood. But when I'm not in the mood, I stick with the tried and true.
What are your Halloween "tried and trues?" Do tell.
