October Make & Take Spicey and Pumpkin Sweet!

 The Make and Take Gals met at Pam's this month for a festive session of pumpkin and falls delights. We started our session with Lunch. Pam made delicious Pumpkin French Toast with Apple Cider Syrup and Spiced Pecans... I know right! Amazing, and it only gets better from there.

After devouring the breakfast lunch we moved right into the Brownie and darling donuts-hole acorn treats. We packed those up to take home...
 For the donuts-hole acorns take some chocolate frosting and swirl one end of the donuts-hole , then roll in jimmies and nuts and stick half a pretzel in the top.

Next up we made shower discs for colds. These are the coolest. You put one in the shower out of the stream of water but where it will be splashed, and as the steam builds the eucalyptus, lavender and rosemary vapor fills the shower and soothes what ails you.
 Recipe: Take one box of baking soda and add 1/4 cup water at a time until it all sticks together. Be sure not to make it too wet as it will take a long time to dry. Add 5 drops each of the essential oils, blend and fill cupcake papers. 1 box should make 3-4 discs. You can then leave them on the counter to dry or bake them for 10 min in a 325 degree oven. Wonderful care package item or gathered in a basket in your guest bath!
 Our final project involved chocolate and lots of it. Chocolate Pumpkin Bark and Salted Caramel Pretzel Bark. After making them I put my in the freezer for a bit and they broke up beautifully. I then put them in simple little bags for gift giving.

 One wonderful fall afternoon with the gals! Thank you Pam!
