From doing surveys around the school I gathered the top six Thanksgiving snacks that
people enjoy over the holiday.

The list included toasted pecans, party meatballs, snickerdoodle cookies, chocolate chip banana monkey bread, buffalo
chicken dip, and peanut butter pumpkin fudge.

Some people even gave the recipe and offered creative tips for even tastier treats. One
sophomore Rayvon Bush said for their homemade buffalo chicken dip they will put it on
top of fries, in their cheese, and they would sometimes bake it inside crescent rolls. In
their buffalo chicken dip recipe they said you’ll need a crock pot, two chicken breast,
cooked and shredded, 1⁄2 cup low fat cheddar cheese, 1⁄2 light crumbled blue cheese,
and 1⁄3 cup buffalo sauce.

Junior  Trent Dixion talked about his favorite chocolate chip

banana monkey bread and how it’s his favorite simple thing to make. The ingredients

include three bananas, one cup of chocolate chips, three cans of biscuits dough, one
cup sugar, three teaspoons cinnamon and for the glaze you’ll need two sticks of butter
and 1⁄2 cup brown sugar.

Senior  Tevin Goodwall was eager to share his love for meatballs along with his
recipe starting with his barbeque bacon meatballs. The ingredients needed are 9 oz of both ground
beef and sausage, 2⁄3 cups bread crumbs, 1⁄4 cup onion chopped, two cloves garlic

minced, one egg, one pack mozzarella cheese grated, six pieces of bacon, and any bbq
sauce of your choice.

He also has a Swedish meatball dish. The ingredients needed, one pound ground beef
and pork, one cup of panko breadcrumbs, 1⁄2 cup onion finely minced, 1⁄4 cup fresh parsley
finely chopped, two cloves garlic, two eggs, and salt and pepper to taste. For the gravy
1⁄4 cup butter, 1⁄4 cup all purpose flour, two cups beef broth, 1⁄2 teaspoon ground allspice,
1⁄2 teaspoon, one cup heavy cream, and salt and pepper to taste.

Ruben Martinez senior, shared his recipe for his soft snickerdoodle cookies. The
ingredients needed are two teaspoons ground cinnamon, one cup softened butter, two
teaspoons vanilla, one cup sugar 1⁄3 cup brown sugar, two eggs, three cups flour, two
teaspoons cream of tartar, two teaspoons baking soda, 1⁄2 teaspoon salt, and for the
cinnamon mixture 1⁄4 cup sugar and one tablespoon cinnamon.

Stefanos Aidonis . a senior, shared his peanut butter pumpkin fudge. The ingredients need
two cups of nut butter, one cup pumpkin purée, 1⁄2 cup coconut oil, 1⁄4 cup maple syrup,
two teaspoons vanilla extract, 1⁄2 teaspoon pumpkin spice, and 1⁄4 flaky sea salt for
finishing garnish.

Last but not least my sister Taylor Sewell shared her toasted honey pecans. All you will
need to do is put one cup pecans in oven for 15 minutes then take them out and drizzle
the desired amount of honey and bake for 10 more minutes.
