Well...I'm not ready to take my Christmas tree down yet ~ It smells way too pretty not to enjoy! That's what I'm telling myself anyways... Instead, I wanted to make something with glitter and paper. NOT clean! I'm sorry I forgot to take a picture of this tin match holder before I started. It was an orangy~red with a flowery decal that was all chippy and rusty. I do realize chippy and rusty is fabulous, but I was in the mood for something pastel. This had been my Grandmothers, from years back. I remember it hanging on the wall above her gas stove. Hopefully she is not rolling over in her grave with my alterations...
I love anything and everything that has to do with pretty papers and glitter! So the last time I was at Michael's, they had a huge bin with these cute little note cards. I knew I would use them for something other than just writing a note...
Adorable right? I think my Grandmother would be ok with this. Before this little tin match holder was living in a cardboard box ~ in the garage. Now it has a home on my kitchen wall. I don't have a gas stove (sad face), but I will use the matches for lighting our candles...
These are such a fast, easy and fun cookie to make or are they a candy? Hhmmm... Whatever they are. They are definitely yummy! Thank you to my sweet friend Lisa, for sharing her delicious recipe with me.
1 (8 ounce) package Philadelphia Cream Cheese, softened
1 (14 ounce) package Wilton Candy Melts, melted
Sweetened coconut flakes (optional)
Crush cookies to fine crumbs in a food processor (cookies can also be finely crushed in a resealable plastic bag using a rolling pin), place in medium bowl. Add softened cream cheese; mix until well blended. Roll cookie mixture into 42 little balls, about 1-inch in diameter and place on parchment paper cookie sheet, place in freezer for 15 minutes.
Melt chocolate following directions on packaging (any leftover chocolate can be stored at room temperature for another use). Dip balls into chocolate. Sprinkle with coconut flakes.
Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour. Store leftover truffles in freezer or refrigerator in a covered container. These do taste better cold. Enjoy!
