Candy, Candy, Candy

I LOVE candy! I have always wanted to make some of my own but never seem to have the time. But, then I read this lovely blog post and thought "I could do that!" So on Saturday my kiddo and I went to Michael's and bought candy kits, molds, and candy melts. Then we went to the Dollar Store and found the old fashioned peppermint sticks and the marshmallow poles. All I did was melt the candy melts in the microwave in a glass shot glass (my DH thought that was hilarious) then dipped the stick in it and rolled in the sprinkles. For the marshmallows all I did was cut in half and put in a pretty package. I think they will make perfect teacher gifts! I had so much fun with the packaging! You know how I love making special packages.
