Maybe Chinese noodle nests: http://www.cooks.com/rec/search/0,1-...e_nest,FF.html

All done stove top. You can see the variety. I like the chocolate and peanut butter types, and you can get big bags of the crunchy noodles here, not just the cans, I like China Boy brand.

Well that leaves my suggestion out.

Just kidding, of course! I was going to mention Rice Krispie treats, but that has already been covered.

Fudge is also done on top of the stove and is always a big hit. Peanutbutter fudge is good too.

Rice Krispie Treats is a good idea. Kids love those. You could also get a package of Chocolate Almond Bark and some dollar store twist or rod hard pretzels. Melt the Almond Bark in the microwave and dip the pretzels in the warm bark. Let cool on wax paper. You can drizzle with melted white Almond Bark or sprinkle with colored sugar or sprinkles while the bark is still wet. It would take more time to prepare than Rice Krispie Treats but it would probably be different than what others are selling.

Peanut Butter Treats (makes 24 squares)

1 12oz pkg butterscotch chips
1 cup peanut butter (creamy or crunchy)
6 cups Rice Krispies cereal

Combine the butterscotch chips and peanut butter in a large saucepan. Stir over low heat until smooth. Remove from heat and add cereal. Stir until well coated. Press mixture into a buttered 9x13 pan. Chill and cut into squares.

You can melt the chips and peanut butter in the microwave also.

Kylie--I HATE bananas, but I love this banana bread. It is amazing if you like moist banana bread. It is NOT like traditional banana bread. It is more like a sponge cake. And even more awesome if you add chocolate chips or walnuts or chopped dates. Use brown paper bags instead of parchment paper. That's what the chef who gave me the recipe told me. The ones on the Internet don't include that step. And you want really ripe bananas (that should tell you how much I like this bread--I hate the smell of bananas). I use a potato masher to mash them.

Heya Snip,

You've probably already read my PM.. Ditch it!
Here's the idea I was working on. Waiting for them to finish chilling in the fridge. I'll post picks later tonight. It's just an idea. Thinking outside of the box. Recipe of the Week: Wild Bird’s Seed Wreath « Main Street Animal Services of Hopkinton

Technically the rules haven't specified feeding what? Why not feed the birds? I'll give one to my bird. If he gets "Snippy" I'll just say fine! Outside birds will like them.

It was very simple and cheap to make. Cookie cutters, lids from jars would work for molds to. You probably already have the ingredients on hand.

Raffia wrapped sandwich bags, tagged with a hand written card attached stating what it is. I'm sure it will sell like crazy. Why not feed the winter birds. It will take care of the marketing, she made it.

Munky.

the earlier post.. I guess I had halloween in my head!

OR.....Just a cheap box of brownies would work. People love brownies!
Tha banana bread would be good. When we did a breakfast for the facility I work at, my co- workers banana bread was the star of the day! (Assuming your oven could handle that stuff!)
I vote for the chocolate-dipped pretzle sticks. I've seen them a few times, & thought about giving them as gifts.

How about some spooky truffles...
