3  Golden Snitches from Ferrero Rocher Chocolates in Completed Projects by patty_o_furniture on: May 05, 2019 06:07:50 PM


Golden Snitches.  Perfect for your Harry Potter party or a lunch box treat!  Made over 200 of these guys for the local teachers at two schools, so no worries if you need to make a bunch.  They make up fast!... that is if you have a cricut cutter.  If you have to cut wings by hand making 200 wouldn't be as fun lol. 



Ingredients:
Ferrero Rocher Chocolates
Hot Glue & Gun
Wings, cut from cardstock is best  (if you have a cricut cutter, it's already ready for you https://design.cricut.com/#/landing/user-project/89148520 )

Directions:
Peel the sticker off of the chocolate.
Place it on the space between the wings.
Fold the wings over to give some shape.
Place a spot of hot glue on the underside of the wings.
Press to the chocolate foil.
Easy!




Enjoy!

Project Name:  Balloon Witchcraft

Brief Description: Gryffindor is in State Fair play and they asked me to make them a bunch of balloon animals for props.  Here's a handful!  Maybe only half of what I took.  One of the teen boys got wide eyed at the balloons inside balloons and said "What kind of balloon witchcraft is this?!?"  I told him I was going to use that phrase for the rest of my life now.

5  Easy Coconut Macaroons in Dessert by patty_o_furniture on: January 29, 2019 08:45:09 PM
Baked cookies for a funeral (with about 10 others) and later the director called me and said the widower called to ask who made the coconut macaroons and if they could have some more.  Best compliment ever.  Of course they could!  Made some more and took them over to his house.

Super easy and you can even use food storage.



Easy Coconut Macaroons

2/3 cup all-purpose flour
5 1/2 cups flaked coconut
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Optional: melting chocolate

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or silicone liner.
In a large bowl, stir together the flour, coconut and salt. Stir in the sweetened condensed milk and vanilla using your hands until well blended. Use a small ice cream scoop to drop dough onto the prepared cookie sheets. Cookies should be about golf ball size or one tablespoon of mixture.
Bake for 12 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, until coconut is toasted.
Melt chocolate and dip bottoms in, then drizzle over top.


Notes:
To make sweetened condensed milk with food storage:
cup hot water
1 cup sugar
1 cup powdered milk
1 TBSP butter
Blend until smooth in a blender.  Makes one 14 oz can.

*
Recipe works well with gluten free flours.  Grandpa's Kitchen GF flour is my favorite.

*
Ghirardellis melting wafers makes a better dipping chocolate than chocolate chips, but regular chocolate chips will work.

7  Dancing Lights in Occasions and Holidays: Challenge Entries by patty_o_furniture on: January 06, 2019 05:41:32 PM
I guess I understand this challenge to be outdoor decorations as in fancy lights.  If it means painted boards and crafted cutesies than I'm out.  But for lights we sure have fun!

We're the annoying house with lights dancing to music!    Cheesy



I can't post the music but you can sing Frosty the Snowman in your head. I love the bottom right corner where the snow covers the lights and really makes it glow.  Can you imagine being my neighbor with this flashing in your window for a month?  LOL


... and now it's over, but we still plug in the roof lights just to try to get some light in the dark January nights!

Heres mine from Mariak. An embroidered hoop with the house names and a newspaper clipping. I burst out laughing at the newspaper because Ravenclaw was still holding the new ford Anglia model he just opened for the tree. Great timing!





Thanks!

Project Name: Marshmallow Friend gift
Project Page Link: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=453961.0
Brief Description: Made a bunch of batches of marshmallows for neighbor gifts!  A tip though, you have to be very careful of the temperature of marshmallows.  Make sure your candy thermometer is calibrated for your elevation.  I added 1/3 cup cocoa to the chocolate ones (but next time will add less), and 1 tsp rum flavoring and a TBSP of a cinnamon/christmas season blend for the eggnog.
