This past year has been such a wonderful string of events threaded throughout the life of my family, weaving everything together in such a magnificent, beautiful way. I am so looking forward to an equally and if not better New Year in 2013
I remember that I used to stay out all night doing "questionable" activities to ring in each New Year, but as I have grown older as the years have past, I have settled down more than a little bit. This year I plan on planting my butt down on the couch with my kiddies and awesome man of a husband and ring in the New Year surrounded by the ones I love. And then on New years day we typically join my family for a brunch
I always have so many different colors of chocolate left over from all my various projects as well as all my holiday baking and decorating, so I came up with these fun little treats that are great for New Years day or even New Years Eve and a great way for me to use up my leftovers!
Super de duper easy, colorful and festive to bring in the New Year.
This is what you will need.....
- Chocolate candy melts (Any colors you have or want to use is up to you.)
- Wax Paper
- Lolly Sticks
- Plastic baggies or decorating bags
- Sprinkles or other edible decor.
These can be made with the kiddies as well, since they are cutest when messy and imperfect, this may be well suited as an afternoon activity.
Choose the order you want to layer you colors and lay down a sheet of wax paper. Melt the first color of chocolate and put it in a plastic baggie with a small snip at the corner. Swirl the chocolate into a circular pattern, making a lot of squiggly lines sort of like confetti.
Before the chocolate sets, add in the lolly sticks by just pushing them into the melted chocolate.
Melt and layer in another color by just swirling it on top.
And add another layer....If you make the holes in the baggies different sizes the thickness of the lines will vary adding to their charm.
And keep going.......
Until you are satisfied, then add in your sprinkles!
Easy and Fun!!! Just be sure to let them fully set for a bit before you lift them off the wax paper.
And as always use what you have and just have fun. If you only have chocolate...just use what you have, and they still will come out cute!!
Enjoy! Thank you all for such a wonderful year and I wish you all a Happy, Prosperous and Safe New Year!!
