Cooking Corner: Scarecrow Treats

Hey guys!  Today I have a really good gooey fall treat for you all.  They are called Scarecrow Treats.  I saw this recipe online and knew I had to try it.  It is pretty easy and doesn't take much time.  What I love about this recipe is you can substitute with different candy.  You can customize it however you'd like.  Let me know if you try it!  Leave a comment or tweet me @jerica_89.
