Anyone have any good, easy Thanksgiving treat recipes for bringing into a 1st grade classroom?

I forgot to mention that you need a 15 oz. can of pumpkin pie filling! ;)



Also, this is a great way of sneaking in fiber and vitamin A in kids diets without them knowing it! ;)

Take one can of Pumpkin pie filling and one box of cake mix (any flavor). Mix the 2 together (it will be a thick batter) and fill into muffin pans (reg. size or mini pans). Set oven at 350 and bake for 20-25 min. for reg. muffin size and fo 15-20min. for mini size.



You can even ice them if you wanted to, but they are great just by themselves. I made them using spice cake mix, but are great with chocolate cake mix too. You can also add walnuts if you wanted. But like pp said... make sure the school doesn't have a no peanut policy. :)

Hope this helps out!

If you wanna get them good and sugared up, here ya go! lol

Dirt Cake

2 packages softened cream cheese
1 package of oreos
1 large tub of cool whip
1 pound powdered sugar
2 large boxes of instant chocolate pudding
4 cups of milk

You'll need 2 good sized bowls. Blend the instant pudding and 4 cups of milk in a bowl and set it aside.
Blend the cream cheese, powdered sugar, and cool whip until well blended or at least not too lumpy. Add the pudding mixture in slowly, and mix till blended.
Alternate layers of Crushed Oreos and the "dirt" mixture. You can even add little gummy worms or something to make it "authentic" looking.
My oldest daughter likes to use orange paper cups so that it looks like a pot to serve it in.

Easy, Kids love it, but oh my will it hurt you. :)

Another idea is to mix candy corn in with the rice crispie treats - then you don't have to use food dye

Just make sure your school doesn't have a nut-free policy before bringing in peanut butter cups or anything else with nuts in them.

You could take a chocolate waffer cookie and top it with a miniture peanut butter cup. It's supposed to look like pilgrim hats.

Thanks, I was thinking of making r.krispie treats (for the 1st time!), and dying them orange, if I can find orange food dye. But the jello is a good idea, too - orange jello w/ chunks of mandarin orange or pineapple maybe ... thanks for the ideas!

Jello with fresh fruit mixed in is easy and fun. My daughter can't get enough of jello. Otherwise rice crispie treats or pumpkin pie squares
