We are now on our fifth day of winter break, with eight days to go. So far, we’ve managed stay busy, but I’m getting a little nervous that we have already crossed so much off of our to-do list! Will we be able to hold off the cabin fever? Will we wind up booking a last minute (and way out of this year’s budget) trip to Disney World? Tempting. We’re taking it a day at a time.
Today was tough. It’s Christmas and we are Jewish. Usually Hanukkah falls around the same time so we have SOMETHING to do on the 25th when everything is closed, but Hanukkah was sooooo early this year that we are really just sitting around the house today. We took a break from movie watching and Magna-tile playing to throw together a little treat. It’s made using left over Christmas kisses, but it would also be perfect for (should I even say it?) Valentines Day (too early, sorry). Anyway. It’s easy to make with the kids if you need a diversion. I’ll pass the computer over to Ellie now!
Me,Mom and Ben came up with the name Kiss me cups because every time Mommy was ready for Ben to put on a heresy kiss on it,Mommy said “Kiss me!”The way to make our DELICIOUS kiss me cups you need:1 bag of good quality chocolate chips.(We used Ghirardelli milk chocolate)24 candy cane hershey kisses-unwraped.12 oreos cut into quarters.
Thats all we need.Now this is how you make it:
.Line the cups of a mini cupcake pan with liners.
.Melt the chocolate chips.(Half power for one minute.Then half power for 30 second intervals,stirring between intervals.)
.Scoop a little bit of chocolate into the cups.(or use a squeeze bottle.)
.Press in two quarters of an oreo,press the cookies into the chocolate.
.Scoop a little more chocolate on top of the cookies.
.Press a hershey kiss on top.
.Chill in the refrigerator for at least 20 minutes.
.Enjoy:)(After lunch or dinner!)
And thats how you make our DELICIOUS kiss me cups.
A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME AND MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS!
Me and my family and friends went to the christmas light show last night.I liked the guy shooting presents from a cannon into a present bag!They even told us to put on a certain channel on the radio so we could hear Christmas music while we drove through !The snowmen kept waving their hand telling us which way to go!It was a drive through!
P.S.Merry christmas to who celebrates Christmas!
