A fun little craft that I've been doing to keep my hands busy is the "Yarn Wreath." My two "creations."
And, pumpkin is my latest indulgence. I'm sipping a decaf pumpkin spice coffee (with cream and sugar) right now. And for lovers of the pumpkin and chocolate combination--check out these recipes (I have no pictures of the finished product, because, quite frankly, they don't last very long around here)...
Take a box of this--
Substitute pumpkin puree for the oil. Stir in some mini chocolate chips. Then top with this cream cheese mixture (I half it).
8 oz softened cream cheese
1/3 cup sugar
dash of salt
1/3 cup of mini chocolate chips (yum---more chocolate!)
Bake as directed for muffins.
OR if you prefer a little more chocolate to pumpkin--try these super-easy Pumpkin Swirl Brownies. Perfect for a cool autumn day special treat. :)
