A Homespun Two Boo to You.

Let’s create Boo and Boo, two ways.

As a homemade tasty treat and a handmade decorative slide for your straw (or gift tag) ~ using our new Classic Cling Rubber Stamps!

~*~

Out of 9 cousins trick-r-treating in my Grandparents neighborhood, one of us was always the Ghost. The sheet over the head with two eyes cut out. What could be easier, right?

Well….making these yummy ‘Oatmeal Creamy’ Homespun Boos are just as easy!

A few simple steps with a few simple ingredients.

Oatmeal Creamy Homespun Boos

Ingredients

  • Little Debbie Oatmeal Creme Cookies
  • Icing or Melting Chocolate of choice
  • Fondant in White
  • Edible Black Pearls (eyes) or Sprinkles
  • Decorative Straw
  • Round Cookie Cutter

Directions

  1. Using a Mixer ~ add several Oatmeal Creme Cookies and mix for about 2 minutes until crumbs are created. (I used 6 cookies)
  2. Form 1″ Balls (or smaller)
  3. Add a Straw into the bottom of each Ball, then place in freezer for about 10 minutes.
  4. Melt Chocolate or have Icing prepared ~ Dip Ball into Chocolate and harden or add a little Icing to top of Ball. (not shown in image below).
  5. Roll Fondant using package instructions, then cut Fondant with a round Cookie Cutter to the size of the Ghost (over the Ball).
  6. Wrap and form Fondant around Ball to create Ghost.
  7. Add Black Pearl Eyes.

Notice the cute little fondant scalloped edges……a Classic Amy thing for sure.

Wrap ’em up in a cello bag for a fun ‘trick-r-treat’ night goody!
