|These are usually a Christmas treat that we do every year, but they are so easy and quick that I decided to add the Valentine m&m's and call it good!|
|Remember those yummy candy dots from when we were kids? Well, I found this idea on another blog and couldn't wait to try it. The first batch that I made was pink and then I tried the red. The recipe is below if you'd like to try! They'd be perfect for a child's birthday party!|
3 cups confectioners' sugar
2 egg whites
White Paper (I used computer paper)
1. Cut white paper into twenty four 2-by-11-inch strips. Using a mixer, beat the confectioners’ sugar and egg white until thick and smooth, about 5 minutes. Divide the icing into small bowls. Stir the food coloring into your bowls, covering any colors you aren't using first with plastic wrap.
2. Lay the paper strips side by side on a work surface. Pipe out the icing onto the paper strips in dots, about 1/3 inch apart in even rows. (If you don't have a decorators bag and tip, just use a plastic baggie and cut off a small part of the corner.)
3. Let the dots sit at room temperature until hardened, 12 hours or overnight.
|Then I made caramels...|
|And I melted chocolate and dipped them...|
|Had to include a photo of Luke's creation. He wanted to know what he could dip with the little bit of chocolate left in the bottom of the bowl and this is what he came up with... chocolate covered marshmallows!|
