I perused Pinterest for cute Valentines ideas for the church function and then realized I would have to spend a lot of money and drag mom out again, so I went upstairs and dug through the cupboards. Here is what I found:
1 box of coco krispies (purchased for .75 as the box was damaged)
1 bag of marshmallows that needed to be used
1 large bag of pretzels bought at Christmas
4 small bags of candy melts, one coco, two red, one white .25 end of year clearance
1 bag of snow caps dark chocolate, purchased on clearance.
All of these ingredients really needed to be used, saving them another season would have meant the trash can.
So I made up the coco krispie treats and covered them with red candy melts and then pressed in the snow caps and drizzled white chocolate on top. Pretty and yummy, but rich.
I melted the other candy melts and we dipped pretzels in light chocolate and sprinkled with peppermint sugar, the white ones we also dipped in peppermint sugar, the red ones we put three little snow caps on, and they turned out so cute. Then I found 24 bags left over in the decoration drawer. We put three of each color pretzel in the bag and tied it with red ribbon from the shop. Add a doilie (on hand from deco drawer) and we had two really cute offerings for the chocolate party.
We are looking forward to the Olympic opening ceremonies. Lil sis will be gone this weekend so I will not get a break from mom and I am a little blue about that. She does not like me to go out by myself and she really should not be left alone.
It has turned cold here again so I doubt I will work in the yard this weekend, drats! But I do plan on taking at least two long walks.
Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.
