It's Boo'd Time Bark Style

Mini K is finally old enough this year to understand my family tradition of Booing people...other than Aggies at football game! I know this is not unique to my family, or just the South, so ignore this post if you already know this tradition.

To BOO a house you essentially make a treat and note letting them know they have been
BOO'd, ring the doorbell and run! In theory you don't sign the note, but Mini K wants people to know she played a sweet trick on them so we signed ours. So watch out if you are in our neighborhood, because Mini K is playing tricks!

Our treat of choice this year is candy corn bark and it came from my twitter/blogworld friend Miss M...if you haven't read her blog you are missing out!
White Chocolate (we did another batch with dark chocolate as well)
crushed preztels
crushed Oreos
and of course candy corn

place candy corn, Oreos and pretzels on a cookie sheet covered with wax paper
melt chocolate
pour over cookie sheet
let harden and break apart
We place ours in cello bags and tied with preppy Halloween grosgrain ribbon and our BOO'd notes!
This is a great recipe to do alone or with little helpers.

Tomorrow is a school holiday and we have quite the day planned. Tomorrow is our self proclaimed Big Sister Day..Mini K's good friend R became a Big Sister a week ago tomorrow so the girls are going to spend the afternoon together...I think I see mani/pedis and ice cream in their future!

Hope y'all had a great weekend!
