Made these today with chocolate chips since that is what I had on hand! Yummy and my kids loved them. But I think I'll give it another go. They were very thick and didn't spread, so they were a bit doughy and they didn't have the wonderful golden glow your picture had. Still they were yummy and super easy to whip up. Just a question though, how many should this make? I made 4, did I make them too big and should have made 6 or 8?
Totally addicted to making things out of these juice bags! This is my sons lunch bag for Jr. High. I was worried that he might be embarrassed about it being "home made". (It is Jr. High!) But several of his friends saw it today and asked if I'd make them one too. It sort of folds in "paper bag style" on the sides and has a flap at the top. It is big but did I mention that he is a jr. high boy? He eats a ton! The bag is 16 juice bags, left over 1 inch single fold bias tape sew back to back and some orange sort of trim. Most of it I picked up on at Goodwill or on clearance, you know when they get rid of the odd colors. Orange and lime green are his favorite colors.
Thanks for jumping on the cleaning question! Yep thats what I do too. I have my boys poke the hole in the bottom too, so that the straw hole is closed. We try to only use these when we leave the house, like going to the beach or park, so that doesn't always work, (you can't set them down.) Then I just slit the bottom and rinse them out with water. Then I leave them to dry over night standing upright in the dish drainer. Water some times get caught in the corners so, I flip them over and leave them to dry overnight again. You really don't need to sterilize them with hot water, you are just getting the juice and sugar cleaned out so that ants, bugs, etc. are attracted to it! Little girls and quirky ladies yes, bugs no.
