Seriously, what little boy wouldn't enjoy hammering some Candy Canes.
He took his job very serious.
(when making these, remember to double bag your candy canes, then wrap a towel around the bags).
Then they should look pretty like this.
You can melt your chocolate in the microwave or a double boiler. But this is what I do; Put a small amount of water in a saucepan, and bring it to a low boil. Put the chocolate in a metal bowl and lay it on top of the saucepan.
So far so good....And then it's time to dip in the Oreo cookies. (By the way I have always had difficulties when I've tried to dip anything into chocolate).
So they ended up looking like this.
Ba Ha Ha! What a Freak'n Hot Mess!
First the cookies kept breaking. Then they just weren't covering right. I tried spoons, forks, tongs...Nothing was helping.
I like to compare mine to the picture on Pinterest. I'm guessing she has a few secrets she wasn't sharing.
So I gave up on the cookies and moved on to the chocolate popcorn.
I came across the tags last year. They are just a free printable you can find here. There are a few other cute ones too.
I was happy with the way they all turned out.
And it was also so good to get out of the house to deliver them.
After being cooped up for hours, totally Chocolate Waisted! Seriously, I may not eat anymore chocolate until valentines day.
