Before you know it many of us we will be on our way home for the Thanksgiving Holiday. However, there are some of you who might be staying on campus during this break. For those of you staying on campus, have no fear — staying on campus doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate Thanksgiving in style.

These treats are easy enough to make in a dorm room, but also cute enough to share with family and friends at home.
