Thrift Store Find - Just In Time For Halloween


I bought one of these Norpro "Cakesicle" Pans today at the Goodwill store.  It was just a dollar, and I admit that I wasn't quite sure what kind of treat it was designed to make until I searched for it online. 

What I did think was that it would make some cute tombstone or ghost cookies for Halloween.  I think the kids at the party will like them...with or without a stick.

I also bought a party hat cookie cutter like this one from Hobby Lobby last week...


It's about 3-1/2 inches tall, and I'm going to use it to cut brownies.  I'll cut part of the pompom from the tops and then frost them in yellow, orange and white to look like candy corn.  This cutter was just 75¢. An actual candy corn-shaped cutter was $3.50. 

I'll post pics when I make these treats next week.

I actually let that pan go at a yard sale (or maybe it ended up at Goodwill). I regretted it later!
