Pumpkin Spice Marshmallow Treats

Hello friends! What better way to celebrate fall than by making delicious fall-themed treats? These pumpkin spice marshmallow treats were so easy to make, and I find the addition of the candy corn makes them so adorable. I followed the classic marshmallow treat recipe and simply threw in some pumpkin spice and food coloring. The pumpkin flavor is just right, not too overwhelming. These treats would also be great for a Halloween party.

To make these yummy treats, you will need:
-1/4 cup margarine
-5 cups of crispy rice cereal
-4 cups of marshmallows
-1/2 tsp pumpkin spice
-red and yellow food coloring

For the glaze topping:
-a handful of candy corn
-icing sugar
-red and yellow food coloring
-2 tbps of almond milk

To make the treats, melt the marshmallows in the microwave for about 3 minutes, checking them after each minute (depending how hot your microwave is). Working quickly, mix in the pumpkin spice and food coloring (I used 3 drops of red and 12 drops of yellow). Add in the cereal and stir to coat it evenly. Place the mixture into a greased 9 X 13 dish and flatten it with a spatula.

To make the glaze, mix the icing sugar with the milk and add in 2 drops of red food coloring and 8 drops of yellow food coloring. Drizzle the glaze over the treats and while it is still sticky, place the candy corn on top. Once the treats are completely cool, cut them into squares.

Let me know if you try these! Stay tuned for another yummy fall recipe coming up on my blog in the next few weeks. Thanks for stopping by! xo

Welcome Fall!! DIY Home Decor

Hello gorgeous people! I know, I know, it's not technically fall yet... but the weather has already been getting cooler and the pumpkin spice latte is back at Starbucks, so I couldn't wait any longer to bring out my fall decorations! I bought a bunch of goodies from the Dollartree, Dollarama, and Michael's. I stuck with fall themed items only for now. I will wait until after Thanksgiving (October 9 for us Canadians) to bring out my Halloween decor.

 It cost me under 10 bucks to make this wreath, and it was a really fun project!
Everything is from Dollartree and Dollarama, except the ribbon which is from Michael's.
Here is my entrance table. The "Welcome Friends" sign is from Michael's. The small pumpkin is from Dollartree. I've had the large pumpkin forever and I don't remember where I bought it.
 Maybe Walmart? 
My bouquet is a mix from both dollarstores and Michael's. 
 I used the same ribbon from Michael's to decorate the mason jar (a recycled salsa jar!).
This simple garland is from Dollarama.
Stella approves!!

Have you started decorating too or are you still clinging to the last bits of summer? Thanks for reading! xo
