Had to share what I along with the angel grandson are making tonight! This recipe I found on the Pioneer Woman- Ree Drummond...love that gal! AND SHHHHH... SHE IS COMING TO DALLAS, December 1 for her recipe book signing!! Will you be there???
12 whole Moon Pies Banana And/or Vanilla
1 pound White Chocolate Almond Bark
24 pieces Oreo Cookies
1 package Brach's Candy Corn
1 package M&M Candy Pieces Or Resee's Pieces
1 container Fall Sprinkles
Small Flower Pots Filled With Candy Corn
Unwrap large moon mies and place them on a large piece of waxed paper. (I found large moon pies at Wal-Green’s.)
Melt white chocolate almond bark according to package directions.
Remove tops to 24 Oreo cookies. Set aside the halves without cream. Keep the halves with cream for owl eyes.
To create owl wings:
Use a knife to spread melted almond bark on the lower half of the moon pie, in the outer segments. Shake fall sprinkles over almond bark and remove excess product.
To create owl eyes:
Use a knife to spread some almond bark on the dark side of an Oreo half. Press Oreo onto the moon pie in the top left side of the circle. Repeat, pressing another Oreo half onto the right side, cream sides up, creating the eyes. Place a small amount of almond bark on one side of an M&M or Reese’s Piece and press into the center of the Oreo cream to make the “pupil.” Repeat the process to create the other pupil.
Spread some almond bark on one of the flat sides of a piece of candy corn and press into the lower center of the moon pie to create the beak.
Spread some almond bark on one of the flat sides of 2 pieces of candy corn and place each above the “eyes” with the tips facing outward.
Allow all the almond bark to harden by placing the finished owl on a piece of waxed paper.
Insert a popsicle stick in the lower center of the owl, about halfway into the moon pie. Put owls in flower pots filled with candy corn for decoration.
Let me know how yours turn out!!
***** Edited to add**** For those of you that do not know what a moon pie is- you must rush out to try one!
A moon pie or MoonPie is a pastry which consists of two round graham cracker cookies, with marshmallow filling in the center, dipped in chocolate or other flavors. The traditional pie is about the diameter of a hockey puck; a smaller version exists (mini MoonPie) that is about half the size. The four main flavors are chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, and banana. Three newer flavors, lemon, orange, and peanut butter are also available.
