Well you might wonder why I suggested in a previous post to buy fall cookie cutters on sale. I have done this activity during the Christmas holidays as a party favor and thought it would also be cute as the adult placeholder/party favor. I borrowed the idea from seeing these $5 chocolate filled cookie cutters at the stores and thought I could duplicate this and for a lot less.
Simply lay out your cookie cutters on a cookie sheet lined with a piece of wax paper or parchment. Make your favorite fudge recipe, I just used the recipe on the sweetened condensed milk package.
Quickly fill the cookie cutter with the fudge, you can leave some space from the top to add sprinkles and decorative frosting. Working quickly add any sprinkles you would like now. Place the cookie tray in the fridge for a couple of hours or per your recipe. Once the fudge is solid you can use decorative frostings to adorn the shape or just leave like it is. Place them in Cellophane bags and tie with a bow or twist tie.
This year I will place a treat on each adult’s plate as a welcoming gift. I may also add a little tag with the person’s name. LIke I mentioned earlier, this can be used for any occasion you have the cookie cutter to go with!!
Another great table idea is if you have any extra uncarved pumpkins from halloween, cut off the top scoop out the insides. Place a jar or vase filled with flowers. You could also plant pansies inside for a longer lasting decoration.
