Halloween is coming!! Our costumes are almost ready and this weekend I am going to pull out all the Harvest merchandise. I am excited!
I also had a chance to strengthen my Aunt of the Year muscle when my nephews and I did some fun Halloween crafts this week We had a blast with pretzel recipes and Crafts using Snyder’s of Hanover Pretzels and Cake Mate Decors.
I am in stiff competition in this family. My sister in law is ridiculously creative and as you can see, her boys are following suit, The picture below is one of the only creations I will own up to!!
Snyder's of Hanover has a lot of different options for pretzels, and using Cake Mate decorations we had an awesome time using the icing and the gel writers making Halloween edible decorations.
Snyder's website does a great job of using their products to incorporate into really creative recipes. Our Halloween night of crafts was a lot of fun. Hope you and your family can use pictures of our own creations below to get inspired and have a night of your own!
