There are SOOOOO many wonderful things on PINTEREST!
I have THOUSANDS of pictures
I want to make, create, cook, send to others, etc, etc, etc...
So this weekend...
I jumped in!
Now I must preface this...
I don't cook much.
Hubby is the master chef
I clean. I clean well!
So....as an educated adult...I CAN FOLLOW A RECIPE!
Our family cookie exchange is coming up.
I thought it would be CUTE
to have a CENTERPIECE of lollipops
for ALL of the kids to take home.
Here is what I wanted to make
LOOK HOW CUTE THEY ARE!
I CAN DO THIS!
I went to my favorite
and got my supplies!
Hubby wanted to know WHY I was buying
100 candy canes in November!
BECAUSE I CAN! :)
So here is my day...
Get out candy canes & sticks.
Lay on waxed paper.
MAKE SURE THE STICKS TOUCH THE CANDY CANES AT BOTH TOP & BOTTOM!
Need white candy melts for centers.
Well...my oven maybe a little warmer than 300 degrees.
A LITTLE large?
Hmmm...doesn't quite look like the pinterest picture.
So..use my fingers to "squish" the bottom & top
TO THE STICK!
melt chocolate (microwave)
DO NOT BURN!
Go slow & stir often!
White chocolate SMEARED into the middle.
Yes, I dripped all over some.
YES, I used my FINGERS to get in
all the nooks & crannies!
And YES...my sprinkles look like a 5year old did them!
NOT EXACTLY like PINTEREST...
But I will bet
the 20 kiddos
who come to the family cookie exchange,
PS...They haven't SEEN PINTEREST!
Yes...I am putting them into a "CUTE" basket....with foam...surrounded by Candy KISSES!
It will look great!
AND NO ONE, will say a word!
If they do...
THEY GET TO HOST THE COOKIE EXCHANGE NEXT YEAR!
So...I love Pinterest...sort of
