I wanted to gather together a list of Christmas ornaments that you can recreate fairly easily, but are still gift worthy for friends and family. So here they are:
I put together some halloween treats today, and surprisingly quickly. I love how they turned out! These came together using oreos, vanilla chips, and candy eyes (all the supplies can be found a Joanns except for the oreos).
Take a bag of Wilton vanilla candy melts, pour into a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 30 seconds. Take out and stir, then microwave for another 30 seconds. Mix again, if needed microwave another 10-20 seconds to finish melting, don’t overcook. Once the candy is smooth move to a hot pad (I like to use my rice bag after heating it for 1 minute) to keep warm.
Take the oreos and split in half. Dip the tip of a lollipop stick in the melted candy then stick in the frosting side of the oreo. Sandwich the cookie back together and set on a piece of wax or freezer paper. Continue with all the cookies (18-20), then take one cookie by the stick and dip in the melted candy. Use a spatula or spoon to coat the cookie completely, then gently tap the stick against the edge of the bowl to shake off the excess candy. Place two eyeballs on the oreo, then set the pop down on the paper to cool. Repeat this with remaining oreos.
Spoon the leftover melted chips into a sandwich baggie, cut off a small corner of the bag. Use this to create the bandages on your mummy, gently squeezing the candy out. If the candy is too hot it will come out too fast, just let it cool for a minute before trying to frost. Let everything dry, then package them up!
