The prompt yesterday at Capture Your 365 was “From the Top” and considering I have a total sweet-tooth, I decided to get a little crafty in the kitchen for a photo : )

My friend Mare made these for her holiday party and being a lover of all things marshmallow and s’more, I haven’t been able to stop craving them! They’re adorable and super easy to make!

To prepare mini s’mores:

  • split graham crackers along perforation into quarters;
  • place handful of melting chocolates in microwave safe bowl and heat for 30 to 45 seconds
  • stir chocolates for a smooth consistency
  • spread chocolate on 1/2 each cracker piece
  • sprinkle Mallow Bits on top of chocolate while still warm
  • let set for 5 minutes
  • Devour!

As always, thanks for stopping by. Have a joyful, creative, blessing filled day!
Live creatively!

Easter Goodness! {Feeling Crafty}

As I sit in my office/craft room editing photos from the last two weeks, I realize there were a couple of Easter activities I wanted to share… It might be late for this year, but it’s never to early to plan for next year! Feel free to Pin or share these ideas so you don’t forget : )

My girls and I love crafting. They’re only 6 and almost 4, but whether it’s scrapbooking, painting, beading, coloring, baking – whatever it is, they just love being creative! So when I found this great Pinterest idea to use crayons on warm eggs, I thought it’d be perfect activity to do with my girls when their best friend was coming over for a sleepover. It really was a hit!

The girls had fun coloring on the eggs and I should’ve probably let them cool just a bit more, but the crayons really melted onto the shells! On the egg on the right, my baby took three crayons (blue, brown and purple) and as she was holding them all together, she scribble-scrabbled on the egg, creating a beautiful watercolor effect.

To get a deeper color, I colored a few layers of the crayon onto the egg. I look forward to doing this again next year!

Another one of our new loves is using Wilton candy molds, particularly the pretzel candy molds and some candy melts. The combination of sweet and salty is delicious!

They’re fairly easy to use and the chocolate sets up pretty quickly. I usually find the molds and candy melts at Michaels or Joann’s and they always have sales on them. Now if they only sold the pretzel rods, too, that would save me an extra trip to the grocery store!
