The Happy Holiday Post

Yes it's Christmas eve eve. Everything ready in your house? Really? Fabulous!


Still looking for a fun and easy family craft that even drunken uncle Steve can't mess up?

Look no further. Today you will learn to make melted candy ornaments.


Supply List: red and green starlight mints

..................... parchment paper

....................... assorted ribbons



Directions: Line a cookie sheet with Parchment paper. Arrange unwrapped star light mints in a pattern on top of Parchment paper. Place in a 350 degree oven for five minutes until melted. Remove and let cool. Add ribbons or hooks and decorate tree .

We hung these from the ceiling with fishing line. They look like sun catchers and twirl all around.

We are still experimenting with candy canes, let me know if you are successful.

Note: supervise children and uncle Steve around oven

Well, they look good enough to eat...

On breakfast TV the other day they had a woman making Angels out of pasta - one of those large tubes (not macaroni, the thicker one with the lines) as the body, I missed what the head was made of, and farfalle for the wings. And loads of glue, paint and glitter. They actually looked okay when they were finished.

The only problem I would have is that drunk uncle Steve would be licking the peppermint...

Bee said...

NAtalia will love doing that with cool Tia Bee. Did I tell you she said I was funny? Yeah, I amuse 4 year olds!

Brian o Vretanos said...

Bee - Does that mean I have the mentality of a 4 year old? That's a rhetorical question, by the way.

[Nothing to say, just wanted to tick the "Send follow-ups" box]

Bee said...

Brian, why did you want to tick the box?

jean knee, that what he said...

Brian o Vretanos said...

So I could get mailed with edifying and amusing comments the minute they were posted.

But all I got was a wisecrack from you ;-)

Jean Knee said...

do that melted candy thing. Lean loved it and it wasn't messy, and you can eat it afterwards.

Don't drop it. If you drop it and it shatters don't walk on it in yer socks and then onto the cream colored carpet.

Very cool idea. And my kind of baking project. Unwrap and put in oven. :)

Mery Christmas!

Bee said...

jean knee! I'm bored and you're probably already celebrating! Or cleaning which in itself is a celebration.

Minty Fresh Elastic said...

I stole all the mints from the mint dish at Dumass Taco. Theres nothing like celebrating Christmas with a Dumass wreath.

Why is Bee bored? I'm not bored. I'm tired. And I have to work all day today like all the other good little boy and girl slave elves....

Jean Knee said...

she's bored cuz there are no bats to torture

Melissa said...

Those are so cool! I bought a bunch of starlight mints for my gingerbread house and then didn't end up using them... I'll store them away for next year with instructions on how to do this :)

http://wegreencoffeebeanextract.net/ You know the kind. Their ill effect include diarrhea and bloating, insomnia and seizure, and this is to mention just a few issues that can take place from their administration. In theory it's less hazardous use a plant-made therapy on the stipulation of respecting the Designated doses and the doctor's testimonials. Used with the correct care herbs make the best weight loss pills that are best than chemical drugs. This might seem obvious to you but many people take this for granted. You will need to make sure that you are on some form of hormone therapy and that your hormone levels have stabilized. Without this most of your effort to lose weight will be in vain. Also, if left untreated, the complications from hypothyroidism can be serious. [url=http://greencoffeetime.net/]We Green Coffee Bean Extract[/url] To sum up, is dieting an energy balance? Yes, your body must adhere to the Laws of Thermodynamic, but this balance is much more complicated than when first examined. In order to master actual weight loss, you must learn to regulate your metabolism the correct way. This regulation occurs through hormones that control the deposition and release of fatty acids in the fat tissue. Check out my other articles to learn more on -->calorie counting -->. When you reach each small career goal, treat yourself to a mini vacation, tickets to the big game or those shoes that you've been eyeballing for months. Do not deny yourself. You worked hard and deserve a reward. That's the whole point, after all! And when you are eating foods, you must thoroughly read the labels on the food. They might have "hidden sweeteners" that you may not notice when buying them. You should look for things like Dextrin, Molasses, Fructose, Corn Syrup, Glucose and other forms of sugar while reading the label. http://greencoffeetime.net/
