What works for me Wednesday!

>> Wednesday, February 11, 2009

The boys will be celebrating Valentines day tomorrow at their preschool. They are especially excited. They have so many little buddies. Of corse, in my typical fashion, I spent all day preparing cards and treats for tomorrow's festivities. The treats I made are goodies I've made before for special events and I had to share. You will love them too!
Diviniy Popcorn
1 package of white candy coating
2 bags microwave popcorn
-Pop popcorn and pour into a large bowl, melt candy coating and pour over popcorn, stir and enjoy! (*note: I tripled the recipe here to feed 2 classrooms of preschoolers)

Truffels for the Teachers
3/4 cup heavy whippingcream
1 package chocolate chips
2 tsp vanilla (or any flavoring extract)
Nuts, sprinkles, powered sugar to roll truffels in
-In a saucepan, heat the whipping cream to boiling. Turn heat down and slowly add the chips and stir until completly melted. Add the vanilla/flavoring and stir. Slowly pour into an ungreased 9x13 pan and stick in the freezer for a few hours. Pull out when solid and scoop out mixture and form into a ball. Then roll in whatever you want. So yummy. Melts in your mouth!

Handmade Valentines
I pulled out my trusty sucker molds and went to town. I made little flower pots out of card stock and put sayings on the card like "We are buds" or "Our friendship is growing". Then I stuck the sucker in the back of the card. Cute if I say so myself-ha! Jonas is really enjoying writing his name. He writes it all the time. Since he wanted to sign his name to the cards, I had to make dots for him (so he would write smaller) but he did a great job. My baby is growing up.

So I hope you enjoy the rest of your week and are getting ready for the big LOVE day. Maybe you will try one of the treats above. You won't be disapointed!

Holy cow, you are so creative. I wouldn't think of that in a million years!

Have a fun day!

Are you serious? I am jealous. Poor Ky has a lame un-creative mom who had him take Pokemon pre-made Valentines to school...yikes :)
