Since Emma has her Daisy Scout troop meeting tomorrow, I wanted to make something special for the girls. Now, before I lived in Georgia, I lived in Bethlehem, PA... Home of Peeps. We had a funny little Peep car that drove around town with a giant yellow marshmallow duck on the top. I was devastated to find that Peeps are not popular here (say that three times fast!) because I like to skewer them and dip them in chocolate to convert them to lollipops. I was able to find snowman Peeps so they became my unsuspecting ka-bobs!
Now, I'm frugal and Bi-Lo wanted like $2.50 for a little tiny thing of sprinkles (hey it was where I was at and I was toting four kids, so I wasn't going bargain hunting elsewhere!). So I made my own. One plastic baggie, four candy canes and a metal spoon. Voila! Peppermint sprinkles!
Hello Mr. Peepy Snowman!
Minty and chocolate..yum!
Now I didn't take apic of it, but I wrapped them up in a clear bag and tied them with festive curling ribbon and popped them into a Christmas cookie box that I found (Must have bought them last year on clearance! Ha! cool!)
So there you have it. Instant pops that the kids love. Very easy. Just pop them on a stick. Dip their backs in chocolate and then in crushed peppermint.
It's love on a stick.
Happy Day to you!
