comfort & joy | Home & Away

Among the tea time snack treats I enjoy this time of year are Anna’s Ginger Thins and Caramel Bugles.  Bugles used to be a special after-school treat at my babysitter’s house (when you could still buy them in boxes!).  All of us kids would put them on the ends of our fingers and pretend that we had creepy pointed fingers like the Wicked Witch of the West.  Bugles are also the perfect shape for making little witch hat desserts, usually stuck on chocolate cookies and dipped in chocolate.  I decided to make a more earth-toned witch hat with my favorite snack treats using sunflower butter as the glue.  The flavor combo is salty, sweet, spicy, nutty, and crunchy like fall leaves.

Are you a good witch or a bad witch?  I must be an autumn witch.

    Ginger thins and Bugles — two of my favorite munchies — brought together by nut butter or chocolate? What a fabulous concept! (We used to do the witchy fingernail thing with the Bugles, too.) Thanks for the lovely photos and the quick/simple/fun treat idea!
