MY COLD HAS TURNED INTO FLU - can anyone else please test this delicious-sounding recipe? If not, I will hope to be well enough to do so before the Tuesday deadline. Thanks, everyone.

I'm happy to test this, if Cheese1227 doesn't want two. Just let me know. Thanks!
Lizthechef October 22, 2010
Many thanks, Frozen Foodie! I'm pretty certain cheese1227 will be happy to test just one - you are both so kind to step in and help me out...
cheese1227 October 23, 2010
Indeed, Frozen Foodie, it's all your. Hope the flu is fading, Liz.

Food52 October 21, 2010
Sorry that one is already taken, still up for testing are Chocolate Caramel Corn and Sour Apple Lollipops.
adamnsvetcooking October 22, 2010
Ill Take the lollies!
AppleAnnie October 21, 2010
pumpkin marzipan please!! so darling!!
Lizthechef October 21, 2010
I can't wait to see what you do with this!
Sagegreen October 22, 2010
Thanks, AppleAnnie for testing these. If you don't have pumpkin jam handy, you could use a pure peach or apricot (not chunky). You want the marzipan to remain light in color. Hope you like these!
Food52 October 21, 2010
A few treats left for testing: Chocolate Caramel Corn, Pumpkin Marzipan, Harry Potter's Pumpkin Pasties and Sour Apple Lollipops.
Taiyyaba October 21, 2010

Taiyyaba October 21, 2010

cheese1227 October 21, 2010
I"ll try the graveyard cupcakes please.
Heena October 21, 2010
I hope you enjoy them as much as I'm going to enjoy those beautiful caramels.
cheese1227 October 21, 2010
I loved these since I first saw them on your blog for the food blogger challenge and voted for you then! I have to make dinner for a family going through some trying times and I am sure the little ones will love these.
Heena October 21, 2010
It warms my heart that you chose these to make. I'm sure they'll love your kind gesture.
P.S. The owls are a big hit with kids and adults alike, and you can make them with the same ingredients + Oreos/M&M's.
