In some catalog over Christmas, I saw these advertised a dozen for $30.  As they were Oreos with marshmallows on top covered in chocolate, I thought we could make some for cheaper than that.

And so ... we did!

(with "snow" aka Confectioner's Sugar)

The ingredients (minus the sugar):

Melt the chocolates in a double boiler (with a little help from Mom):

When melted, remove to a work surface and dip Oreo in it:

Then dip a marshmallow:

Put the marshmallow on top of the Oreo:

And then you'll get a collection, to let cool/dry/harden/verb of your choice:

Mom and I put them on plates and dusted with powdered sugar.  They'd also be tasty with mint Oreos and dark chocolate instead of milk (I prefer milk, though) and maybe a little strip of fruit roll-up around the base as a 'hat band'.

Woo hoo, thank you both!  Smiley  I haven't worn the skirt in AGES and I didn't think I was going to again.  I hope whoever gets it in the swap likes it as much as I do.

Did you get it cold or too hot?  And have you shaken the bottle?

Wow - I've never heard of Biscornu before.  Are they just decorative?  Can they be used as ornaments?

Regardless, yours are lovely!

Oh my.  I'm blinking away tears right now.  What a sad story and what a gorgeous quilt.  I know that her family will appreciate the thought, love and prayers that went into it and will treasure it.

For the current Friends of Craftster Raffle swap (come join!), I made a purse out of a skirt that I was going to donate.  The requirements were to upcycle something into something else.  I reused the outer skirt, the lining, and the tie.  The only thing I used that was new was the interfacing and thread. Cheesy  No pattern, just cut and went with what was in my head.  


The tie was on the skirt as well, as a belt-like thing and I thought it was perfect to close the purse with.
