Last Minute 4th of July Treats

Have you tried these?




Usually I turn up my nose at anything that even resembles dark chocolate, because ick, but OH MY. 
I could eat a whole bag of these without even trying.

Not only are they scrumdiddlyumptious, but if you get a funnel and pour their minty goodness into a clear bag with some patriotic type ribbon (or candy cane ribbon because that works too)
they look all festive and homemade. 

Even though you just dumped them out of a container.

I know that I declared those pretzel bags the spawn of Satan before, but I take it back. 
Consider this my official apology. 

Speaking of apologies, this Sunday is my week to teach all 31 girls at church about repentance, and who knows how many parents I'll have to say I'm sorry to after it's over because they'll be learning from a mistake making expert, and things could go off track quickly with role playing and Uncle Sam hats and run on sentences and so forth.

What was I saying? Oh yeah.

Handouts.





Paper + Staples + a Holiday Theme = Sweet Forgiveness.

  13. Thanks for this post! Wanting a quick treat for co-workers I ran with the York treat idea with a couple of alterations. I used a 1x8" bag alternating 6 white/blue pieces and then added a red MM. I kept going until the bag was full. (3layers) Topped it off with a festive cupcake liner folded in half (found at HL for 1/2 price) then added a stamped tag and a bit of twine. (Could have come up with something more colorful, but time was of the essence. You can see it here:
