Thursday, October 15, 2015

Say whaaaaat? I made two batches of these in 3 days and they were soo, so good. One batch for a Thanksgiving potluck at my office and the other for a birthday party. If you're like me and you are that girl who likes pumpkin spice everything, ugg boots and vodka (also known as the basic bitch) then you will be in love with these. I promise they will not disappoint.

1/2 tsp of of pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp of cinnamon 
1 tsp of vanilla

Whatever kind of sprinkles or candy you want to decorate with
