the holidays are over.
did you have a grand time?
did you get to spend quality time with family?
my sis and bro-in-law came and i also got a chance to be 813 miles from home to play in the snow with
my kids, hubby and MIL.
oh how i tire of palm trees and beaches!
(yeah, yeah, i know...)
we really did have a wonder full holiday and
now i am back to reality/work.
and i do miss making a few weekly blog posts,
so without further ado,
how's about we meet the snowmen mint meltaway family?
first lemme tell you how they came to be.
i found this recipe in my 14-yr-old daughter's old American Girl book and was reminded of the cuteness when i remember making them years ago when she was in nursery school.
i remember cuz the class went nutty crazy over them and said they were a huge hit cuz they melt in your mouth and there were no worries of choking on the peppermint goodness.
so here's what you need:
1 tbsp. softened butter (NOT margarine)
1 tbsp. light corn syrup
1/8 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. peppermint extract
1 cup powdered sugar
green and orange food coloring
dark blue and green nonpareils
just work with the peppermint dough
pretending it's playdough.
yes cross-eyed i did get.
those nonpareils are tiny!!!
better get that knock on your door now...
. . . . . . . . . . .
were you expecting them at your house?
now with so many in the house,
hope there are no fights either.
and that everyone has an awesome time.
a grand time for each and everyone of you.
so i hope you all have fun together!
especially with her.
even though she never seems to have her head on right,
she's still my favorite.
but if they do overstay their welcome,
you can always eat them.
i promise you won't regret it.
happy winter everybody!
