Hello and Happy Tuesday to ya!
I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend. I know I did. We started the weekend off on Wednesday in hubby's hometown and hung out with his folks. Then on Thursday we headed to my sister's and stuffed ourselves with Prime Rib (cause that's how she rolls) and played with my adorable nephew. Friday we partied it up here in my warm home while everyone was out shopping in the cold. Saturday we went and got our fluffy Christmas tree (it's so fluffy!!) and I decorated it while hubby watched some amazing football. Sunday we all got together at my dad's house to celebrate ALL the November/December birthdays we have. There's 5 total, plus a wedding anniversary, plus a new grandbaby on the way, oh and not to mention Thanksgiving and Christmas. This time of year is seriously crazy for our family!!
I wanted to show off some of the things we did on Black Friday. First we started off with a FUNdue party!! Why fondue you ask? Who doesn't love fondue?! We added some peanut butter to the chocolate too to make it that much more amazing!
After I stuffed my face with chocolate covered everything, I wanted to try my hand at the adorable snowmen cookies I've been seeing everywhere lately. Here's my version:
12 Sugar cookies
12 Large Marshmallows
1 tube Black icing
Colored icing-red, blue, green, orange, etc
1 Cup powdered sugar
2 Tbsp butter, softened
1-2 Tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla
Bake cookies as directed on package or follow your favorite sugar cookie recipe. Let them cool.
Mix together the sugar, butter, milk and vanilla in a mixer for about 3 minutes. Spread over the cooled cookies. Microwave marshmallows on a plate for about 5 seconds, check to make sure they aren't melting, zap for another 5 seconds, remove and immediately place on cookies while grabbing from the bottom. Decorate with different colored icings as much as you like. Enjoy!
What did you do this past Holiday weekend? Did you shop til you dropped or bake til you ache? Come back tomorrow for another holiday favorite treat of mine.
Thanks for stopping by!
