I Love Pinterest…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
