Sweet Treats

One of my favorite Christmas treats are the Hershey Candy Cane Kisses and they are not easy to find! One year my friend Jackie and I looked in every store within a 20 mile radius in Denver to find just a few bags of them! This year I bought several bags as soon as I saw them on the shelf. Another yummy Christmas treat is Peppermint Cocoa - and these adorable little stir sticks, Candy Cane Marshmallows, make me happy!

Lindsey made them last night and packaged them up, two to a bag, tied onto a Top Note wrapped Cocoa Packet. Hers were just like the Cocoa Packets Trace and I made for his teachers, (see below) except she added these stir-in treats to one side of the ribbon ties. (I didn't get a picture of her finished gifts as she took off with them this morning - only one more day of school until Christmas break!)

I got the idea to make these from Julie Buhler who made these candy cane coated marshmallows. I thought they looked super cute and so easy to make. Her blog, Paper Pleasing Ideas, is one that I love to read. She is a creative and fabulous stamper from Canada and often has great tutorials (written and video) on her blog. You should definitely check it out!

Lindsey had fun making them and can't wait to give them out to her friends today. And see that little bit of platter showing in the photo of the marshmallows - that beauty is a gift from Dee, an incredible scrapper and friend that I miss from Colorado! Thanks girl!
