Use up the candy on Gameday

Do you have some leftover Halloween candy?  Try these.. Here's how to do it straight from Confessions of a Cookbook Queen Bake a pan of brownies according to your recipe/box but when they’re done, remove from oven and DON’T turn the oven off.  Immediately sprinkle the surface generously with mini marshmallows (for a 9×13 pan you’ll probably need 3-4 cups)  and about a cup of assorted candy.  I used Fall colored M&Ms and Candy Corn, but you really could use anything.  For Christmas you could find some red, white and green candy that would look really cute and festive too.

Trunk or Treat Tailgate

As you think about your Halloween plans for next week, I wanted to do a re-post from last October to give you some fun ideas... When we hear Tailgate, we think football.  But parking in a lot and having a little party can happen for any occasion.  You might be in a parking lot for another reason...a Trunk or Treat tailgate.  Trunk or Treats are such a creative way to celebrate Halloween...and it's just another reason to have a tailgate party.

Happy Gameday

Neiman Marcus never ceases to impress with their annual Christmas book's fantasy gifts.  This year they are offering a gorgeous tailgate trailer with Bulleit whiskeys.   Here are the details straight from the catalog...
