I really do love these three scents at Dollar Tree: Pumpkin Pie, Sugar cookie, and Apple Pie. Because I plan on giving these out as gifts this year for some of my friends, teachers and employees – I had to make cute printables, to dress up my candle gift.

4 Layer Chocolate pie

chocolate 4

Each year my aunt makes the tastiest 4 Layer Chocolate Pie for Thanksgiving. This year I asked what to bring and she said I could make the pie. At first I was skeptical because I really do not cook or bake, but it really is easy and fast to make. No cooking required and takes about 25 mins. Take this to your next party or holiday event and it is sure to be eaten. Allergic to nuts? eliminate them and make it a 3-layer.

Here’s how:


Winter Children crafts

Winter crafts

Each year at Thanksgiving we like to entertain our crew of children with some crafts for the holidays while food is being prepared. There are 4 kids, 2 girls and 2 boys ages 7 and 4. (That’s a whole other post on how I could never be pregnant by myself. LOL) This year I talked to my sister about what we wanted to do and sent her some ideas and then went off to the craft stores. I picked up a Gingerbread felt kit at Joann’s that was on sale and makes more than enough for our kids. I also got a pack of snowflake foam stickers there for a $1. I grabbed some foam sheets and magnets that I already had, glue gun and other craft stuff and headed to my hometown.

I took a 4X6 picture as a template and placed in the middle of the foam sheet and traced it out. Cut out the middle and let the kids decorate their picture frame. When all was done, I placed the magnet on the back and we have a winter wonderland frame to go on the fridge.

Next I let the kiddos decorate their Gingerbread men and women. This is were the glue gun came in because some of the felt pieces were not stickers. It says you could use Elmer’s glue, but I just used the glue gun and had the kids tell me where they wanted the pieces. Placed a magnet on the back and up on the fridge they went.

My sis picked up some clear ornaments, a small funnel, christmas ribbon, hot cocoa, mini marshmallows,  sprinkles, chocolate chips, white chocolate chips and mini M&M’s at Wal-Mart.

Supplies for Hot Cocoa ornament

She let the kids funnel or spoon in their layers of hot cocoa and toppings into their ornaments. We only did one pack of hot cocoa but the ornament could hold 2 and toppings. Tied a ribbon of their choice to the top and the kids have a hot cocoa ornament for the tree.

Lastly I had Sierra’s two kids over after Thanksgiving to do crafts. I had them do the gingerbread magnet and all the girls make a snowman card. I took blue cardstock in half and cut it. I painted the palm of their hand with white paint and pressed it down on the cardstock and then let them use markers to draw their snowman a face, arms, buttons, hat and scarf and lots of snowflakes. This also works on ornaments.
