12 Weeks of Christmas Cookies - Week 2

So it is week two of the twelve weeks of Christmas cookies. I am grateful to Brenda over at Meal Planning Magic for inviting me to participate in this!! My kids and I have had a blast coming up with what to do and then preparing things. This week I wanted to try something that I had never done before!! However, it may not have been my brightest idea!! Sometimes things that look very simple can become ridiculously difficult!! Ok, so maybe it wasn't that difficult .... just mostly a sticky mess!! I used a recipe that I got from I chose Holly Christmas Cookies. I added the marshmellows, butter, vanilla and food coloring to the pan. Then once it was melted, I removed it from the heat and added cornflakes. Judging from the way mine turned out, I think that this recipes needs more cornflakes so it won't be as gooey!!
These probably wouldn't freeze well so they would be best made right before you plan to serve them.
Now you should go check out all the other cookies created just for The 12 Weeks of Christmas Cookies Blog Hop!!

So I have been invited to a few Halloween parties.....I am trying to come up with something that won't cost me a small fortune!! So here is what I am thinking......
I think the sugar skull would be pretty cool and probably very different than anybody else. I think I have most everything that it would take to make this one happen. It could also be fun for a photo shoot or a car show or even both!! This could be done fairly cheaply and I am confidant that I could pull it off!! However, one of the things I was invited to, has a theme!! The theme is Candyland. I think it could be fairly easy to do this......
Which one do you think I should do?? or should I do both??
