Fun Thanksgiving Treats
Thanksgiving Dinner

The family is coming to town for Thanksgiving to see you, but you haven’t thought of a festive desert yet. Coming up with the right Thanksgiving goodies can make the holidays even better. We here at Rob Green Buick GMC in Twin Falls, ID have a few fun Thanksgiving treats that will have family and friends laughing the night away.

Pilgrim Hat Cookies

The pilgrim hat cookies are a great treat for kids and adults alike. In addition to being quick to make, they’re also perfect for those on a strict budget this holiday season. All you need are some fudge-striped cookies, vanilla frosting, yellow food coloring, peanut butter cups, and orange mini Chiclets gum.

Cream-Filled Pumpkin Cupcakes

Making a batch of cream-filled pumpkin cupcakes is a little more time consuming, but well worth the effort. To make these cupcakes, you’ll need cupcake ingredients and a can of solid-pack pumpkin, with some cinnamon for added flavor.

To create the filling, you’ll need to combine cornstarch and milk in a saucepan until it runs smooth. Boil the mixture while stirring and let it cool. Add cream shortening, butter, and confectioners’ sugar. Next, add the cornstarch mixture while beating until it’s fluffy. Finally, cut a circle in the top of each cupcake and add the filling!

Turkey Pilgrim Cookies

Creating a batch of turkey pilgrim cookies is a quick and easy task, especially for such a sweet treat! All you need is some candy corn, double stuffed Oreos, chocolate and vanilla frosting, Hershey kisses, peanut butter cups, miniature marshmallows, Rolo candies, and orange food coloring.

CSI Performance of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” Promises Ghoulish Good Time for the Family

Come watch the dance department perform Michael Jackson's "Thriller"

Decorating the house, trick or treating with the kids, a costume party with friends—there’s always plenty to look forward to around Halloween, everyone’s favorite spooky holiday. But the Dance Department at the College of Southern Idaho steps things up a notch in late October by offering an incredible CSI performance of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller“.

 

Don’t miss CSI’s annual tribute to this ghastly classic at the Fine Arts Auditorium on October 26th at 4:30 pm. Director Julie Wright-Leggett will lead a group of students fully outfitted in zombie costumes as they pay tribute to Jackson’s one-of-a-kind choreography.

 

Admission is free of charge, so bring the whole family to get into the Halloween spirit like never before. The program will also feature additional jazz and contemporary dance performances, so there’s sure to be something for everyone.

 

In preparation for the headlining event, CSI students have been studying dance legend Bob Fosse, believed to be Michael Jackson’s inspiration as he choreographed his ground-breaking “Thriller” video.

 

Be sure to hang around after the curtain closes on Thriller as there will be an opportunity for kids to collect Halloween candy and get pictures with all of the zombies who performed during the evening.

 

Stop by and see our team today to get behind the wheel of a new car perfect for all those scenic fall drives. Oh, and Happy Halloween from Rob Green Buick GMC!
