Chocolate Dipped Pretzels

Today I had such a craving for chocolate...and wouldn't you know it, not one
candy bar in sight...but I did have some chocolate chips and pretzels!
So I raided my pantry and made chocolate dipped pretzels. I grabbed anything
you could put on a cookie and put it on my pretzels.
If you love sweet & salty you will love these.
Super easy to make and the kids will love making them with you!

Here's a picture of everything I used, I did have
 a small amount of white chocolate chips!    
Melt chocolate in the microwave 20 seconds
and stir, do this about 3 or 4 times stirring until the
chocolate is completely melted!
Dip the pretzels into the chocolate and sprinkle
whatever you desire...I used crunched almonds,
cookie sprinkles...I found rolling the pretzels
worked best for all over coverage.
Lay them on parchment paper until dry!
Well I'm ready for movie night!!
My husband will have to get his own!

Fun Birthday Party Set Up!


Fun Birthday Party Set Up!
I love making things, and I really love making things for kids. Here I've chosen a Minnie Mouse Theme!

At Christmas I made a special table for my grandkids.
I wanted them to like sitting at their table so I  made it special.
I started with the chair covers and I thought they would also make
a very cute Birthday table (above). When you make these use a
fabric that has a little give so they fit easier.

I love to crochet so I made these Minnie Mouse placemats.
They are super easy but if you don't know how to crochet.
You could make these with felt ( just sew or glue on the ears).

For the Minnie Mouse Name Cards.
To make the cut outs I used my ribbon spool to trace out the ears! I then used a CD and traced out the head! I applied a little tape and glue…and there you have it.
I applied the cut out to a wooden skewer, using tape.
Super easy and very inexpensive to make!
I inserted the Minnie Mouse cut out into a cheap balloon weight
that I picked up at my local Dollar Store!

I crocheted the Minnie Mouse gift bag that could be used
for party favors or for candy. I think a little girl would love it.
And again if you don't crochet you could use a small black paper
bag and put the mouse ears on the sides.

My cupcakes were super easy to make.
I used a pre-made fondant from the Michaels Craft store.
I applied black & yellow food coloring and made the famous
ears and then made some little shoes by hand.
I used home made butter cream frosting.


This really was inexpensive to make, and I think any little girl would love it!
I hope you've enjoyed looking at my blog and you find it useful!
