Welcome Calli of Make it Do! She’s here to share her recipe for Night Owl S’more snack mix!

Calli’s blog name perfectly describes her blog…you name it, and she can make it. From her list of great recipes to all her great sewing patterns in her pattern shop. There is lots to make at Make it Do. Welcome Calli!

Hi, my name is Calli. I write a blog called Make it Do. I am so excited to be a guest here at No Biggie. I love the No Biggie attitude and I love Kami.

Thanksgiving day is coming right up, and I’m hosting dinner at our home. After we eat ourselves silly we love to roll to the family room to watch football and play games. That means we get to eat some more.

That’s where Night Owl S’more Treats come in.

My recipe comes from my sister-in-law Marcie, who is as sweet as her treats. Thanks Marcie! And here’s a small world connection for you: my brother Jordan, who is married to Marcie, was friends with Kami in school.

This year for Thanksgiving, I thought it would be fun to make some cornucopia cones for serving the S’more treats and popcorn.

To make a cone, all you need is a sheet of scrapbook paper, a pencil and string, scissors, glue or double stick tape and some parchment paper. A decorative scallop punch is optional, I’m using one for my cones. You could also use decorative scissors on the top.

To make a cone, draw a 1/4 circle. Do you remember the old compasses we used to use in school to make perfect circles? Well I don’t have one…. so I make it do by using a string tied to a pencil. Hold the corner of the string in the corner of your paper and keep your pencil at a steady angle. To make a generous cone, I made them 8″.

I could use glue, but double stick tape is fast and easy. And since these are for serving food, they aren’t meant to last. Use the tape on the top 4 inches or so, but not all the way to the point. To give the top a decorative touch, I’m using a border punch.

To make my cone food friendly, I inserted a little parchment paper cut in 8″ x 8″. I even used a decorative scissor on top of the parchment. Cut out your 1/4 circle. Roll it up into a cone and press the tape closed.

And fill it with your treats. They’ll make a festive way to snack away on Thanksgiving Day.

Here’s the recipe for Marcie’s Night Owl S’mores: They are crazy good!

Night Owl S’more Treats
9 cups Honey Grahams Cereal (like Golden Grahams)
3/4 cup Light Corn Syrup
3 tablespoons Butter
1- 11.5 ounce package Milk Chocolate Chips
1 teaspoon vanilla
2-3 cups mini marshmallows

Grease a cookie sheet with butter. Measure 9 cups graham cereal into a large mixing bowl. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine corn syrup, butter and milk chocolate chips. Stir constantly until chocolate chips are melted and ingredients are combined. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Pour over cereal and stir quickly until cereal is coated with chocolate. Stir in the marshmallows. Pour mixture onto cookie sheet and using a slightly damp hand, press into the pan. Keeps about 2 days… if it ever lasts that long.Click over to Tasty Kitchen for the printable recipe.

    This looks great! But is there anything you can use instead of corn syrup, or can you just omit it? I have a friend who would LOVE this recipe, but she’s actually allergic to all corn products…
