This adorable little candy was on every holiday cookie plate my mother made when I was growing up. I always called them Christmas Breakfast candy, but I have no idea where the idea, or the recipe, actually came from. They always reminded me of little dollhouse food, a perfectly cooked egg and two slices of bacon…in miniature. When I had my own kids, I started to make this, too. They became very popular and people started looking for them. My husband looks forward to these little bites every year. They really dress up a holiday cookie plate and look so cute on a Christmas breakfast or brunch table. The best part? They have only THREE ingredients, so you can whip them up in no time.

I love this time of year, because when I am out and about I can find pumpkin-flavored EVERYTHING. Pumpkin is one of my favorite fall flavors. But, in our home, we use pumpkin quite a lot throughout the whole year. Pumpkin is a great source of vitamin A, fiber, and beta-carotene. I find pumpkin soothing to my stomach and easy to eat. The flavor is fantastic, and when combined with warm spices…really has such a comfy feel! I keep canned pumpkin in my cupboard, as well as fresh pumpkin puree in my freezer in the years when our pumpkin crop does well.
