Pumpkin Patch Treats

 

Soccer season is over and we just had an end of the season soccer party for String Beane's team.  My job was to bring a dessert.  

I really did not want to make another trip to the store for any ingredients.  So I just pulled something together with what I had on hand.

I think they turned out cute.

I used Duncan Heins chewy fudge brownie mix and made brownies in a muffin tin.  Then I frosted them with the famous Crisco butter cream, tinted green.  And I stuck on a pumpkin candy that we had left over from Halloween.


Then I used some Pillsbury sugar cookie dough and made the cookies, according to the package.  Slice and bake.  I had some orange frosting, Crisco style, left over from Halloween.  I piped on the frosting in a swirl and then used some of the green frosting to pipe leaves and vines.
The little soccer team loved them.  I loved them too.  It was a win, win.  And a great way to use what I had on hand to make something special for my String Beane! 

I am linking up again at Metamorphasis Monday
and these other awesome parties!
