Decorated Oreo Tailgate Treats

In the vibrant college community of Manhattan, KS, fall is my absolute favorite time of year. The entire community turns purple, silver and white in honor of its cherished K-State Wildcats football team led by the famed Coach Bill Snyder. From surprise appearances around town by the marching band and the school mascot, to community festivals and Wear-Your-Purple-to-Work Fridays, it’s a fun and exciting home-town experience.

This year I wanted to kick off the start of fall football with something decorative and sweet. I came across these “embellished Oreos” from SoCreativeThings.com, and instantly starting planning my purple, silver and white tailgate treat!
