Mr Peeps

Oh how I wish I had found this last month!

Link here

Christmas is approaching, and this is the day
Santa has sent Mr. Peeps to your house to stay.
He sent this small elf to your house and mine.
Soon after Thanksgiving, He must be on time.
Mr. Peeps has a purpose. His purpose will be,
To whisper to Santa all the good that he sees.
Soon after he gets here, he moves only at night
To high places, low places, he stays in plain sight.
In the kitchen, for instance, he sits high on a shelf.
Mr. Peeps can sit anywhere, for he is an elf.
He holds very still when he thinks you are watching.
His magic is precious, it fades with on touching.
He sits on the tree on Christmas Eve day.
He knows that Santa is soon on his way.
He waits and he waits without making a noise.
He waits until Santa arrives with the toys.
So you better be nice and mind what you say
Because Mr. Peeps will tell Santa when he comes with his sleigh.
Once Christmas is here and Santa has come,
Mr. Peeps must leave, for his job is well done.
But, he will return next year on the very same day,
To watch your behavior as you work and play.

Sweet Treats

I found these goodies on Life Should be Delicious.

Dip the nutter butters in white chocolate and use mini-chocolate chips for the eyes and mouth

Use a favorite sugar cookie recipe

1 pkg. cream cheese (softened)
1/2 C powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 med. size Cool Whip
Mix together until smooth. Spread over crust and top with favorite fruits

Ingredients in the Jar:Reduce

1 sleeve graham crackers (approx 1 1/3 c.)to crumbs and layer 2/3 of the crumbs in a 1 qt. jar. Place 8 marshmallow bunny peeps standing up, facing out around the inside of the jar pressing them against the glass, but don’t squash them.Carefully, spoon remaining crumbs in the center of the jar to support the bunnies, pressing down to keep it snug.On top of this pour 1 ½ c. Easter M&M’s.Spoon 1/3 c. brown Sugar into center of M&M’s gently pressing with a spoon.Decorate the lid of the jar however you please…tie curly ribbons around the neck of the jar.Directions: Empty the jar contents into a bowl. Snip the bunnies into bits with kitchen sheers or cut up with a knife. Return the bunny bits to the mixture and mix well. Melt ½ c. butter, add 1 t. vanilla. Pour this over the dry ingredients, mixing well. Pat into a greased 8x8 baking dish. Bake at 350 for approx. 20 minutes. Cool and cut into bars.*Option: leave the bunnies whole; combine remaining ingredients and place the bunnies on top; then bake as directed

2-3 Bags Pretzel Logs
5 lbs. White & Milk Chocolate Buttons(These will melt easily in the microwave)

Homemade Caramel:
2 C brown sugar
1 C corn syrup
2 cubes butter
1 C sweetened condensed milk
Stir constantly on high. Cook to a firm ball, then remove from heat and add 1 tsp. vanilla. Cool until caramel is almost set. Hold a large spoon of caramel and twist pretzel logs in caramel to coat all but bottom two inches. Place logs on chilled & sprayed cookie sheet. Place in freezer until hard.
Melt 1 c. chocolate buttons in microwave for 1 min. Stir, then microwave for 30 sec. at a time until melted smooth. Stir well after each 30 secs. Dip caramel covered pretzels in chocolate. Let harden.
Melt white chocolate buttons and drizzle fine diagonal lines over pretzels. You can also sprinkle grated nuts, coconut, or sprinkles on the end if desired.

Love this garland from Over the Tipsy Top. Link Here
Check out this cute clock from Just A Girl. You have got to click on this link to see what this clock looked like before. It makes me re -think about what i could do with some of the ugly stuff I see out there.

Here are some more fun stuff from her. I am actually making these right now. I have already spray painted the wreath and broom that I bought at Micheal's yesterday.(cheap too-the wreath was about $3 and the broom $2) I am now going to attempt to decorate them a bit. We will see how mine turn out!
