I LOVE Pinterest...well sort of...

OMG!
There are SOOOOO  many wonderful things on PINTEREST!
I have THOUSANDS of pictures
of things
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!
Sort of.

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.

SO...
Here is what I wanted to make


LOOK HOW CUTE THEY ARE!

OK.
I CAN DO THIS!

I went to my favorite
WALLY  MART
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.
MELTED  QUICKLY!


A LITTLE large?
Hmmm...doesn't quite look like the pinterest picture.
Hmmm.

So..use my fingers to "squish" the bottom & top 
TO THE STICK!

OK..then
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,
Won't CARE!

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!

HA!

So...I love Pinterest...sort of
:)

  1. These are adorable! Honestly, I wouldn't have thought twice about whether they looked "perfect" or not. I can cook/bake decently, but I'm no pro. You did a great job, and you're right - anyone who complains can take over! ;)

    Thank you for taking the time to link up at my Teaching Tuesday link up party. I'm sharing this on Pinterest, and I hope you are back again next week with a new post. =)
