halloween “in the house”: pretzel owls

How. Cute.

I am never less than amazed at the amount of creativity that exists out there among my fellow bloggers. Even more amazed when that creativity results in ideas that anyone can execute. Like these pretzel owls!

Wendy is the clever creator behind the lovely blog, The Monday Box – which you are going to want to bookmark and follow, STAT. The blog was born out of a desire to send a weekly care package to her son at college, and the need to find recipes that would hold up well in travel.

The Monday Box is a fabulous go-to if you are looking for a from-your-kitchen gift to send to friends and loved ones (the holidays are coming!), but it’s so much more than that. Scrolling through the blog I guarantee that you will want to make almost every single recipe – and better yet, you’ll actually feel like you can! Simple instructions and lots of clear beautiful pictures make this blog a keeper for sure.

I fell in love with these adorable and easy-to-make owls and had to share them with all of you as they are pretty much foolproof, and came together so quickly.

Serve them on a tray, in goody bags or in cute cups for individual servings – they are sure to be a hit!

    Thank you so much, Sheri, for your very kind and enthusiastic support of The Monday Box!! I am truly delighted that you love these little owls as much as I do! Creating is fun, but creating for others is the BEST. 🙂 I am so glad you found The Monday Box, because that led me here! We share several passions (baking, cooking, gardening) with the primary shared passion of family. We even both love a Noah. 🙂 I am looking forward to following your blog.
