Happy Wednesday! Today was my last day at work for a while, since tomorrow morning is my surgery. I have to be up at the crack of dawn and to the hospital by 5:45 am. I guess the early bird gets her ankle fixed? Anyway, here's a crafty food project my kids and I did this weekend. My son this was his favorite food craft we've ever done!
We dipped NutterButter cookies into chocolate candy melts. Then added M&M noses, white chocolate chip eyes and broken pretzel antlers. Reindeer on a stick!
After the first couple of cookie fell off the sticks into the melted chocolate, I got smart. I dipped each popsicle stick in melted chocolate, then put it inbetween the two cookie layers. THEN froze the cookies, undipped for about 20 minutes. I only took out a few cookies at a time for dipping and yeah! No more cookies falling off the stick.
I love how each one is different, how some have green noses, and how they are perfectly imperfect! We had so much fun making these. My kids seriously had me on my toes getting the pops out of the fridge fast enough to dip. And have you even dipped a NutterButter cookie in chocolate? Why oh why have I never done this before? Delicious!
Hope you're having a great week! The next time I blog...i'll have a bionic ankle! Okay, maybe not. But it will be fixed and i'll be on my way to healing. Thanks for stopping by today!
