Pilgram Hats

on November 25, 2008

The website and magazine Family Fun is great! I have gotten several of our craft ideas from it. My friend Jodi tried out this recipe that we both saw and they turned out really cute so I thought I would give it a try.

What was I thinking????? This might be a good project when I am smart and Emily is older! She had a wonderful time though. They just didn’t turn out like the pictures! I obviously am kitchen challenged as I royally messed up the first batch of chocolate. Maybe cooked it too long?? It turned into a blob and I burned myself! I was determined though to make it work! And Emily was already drooling over the M&M’s.

I finally got the chocolate right and we were ready to go. What a mess! I think Emily got more on her than on the marshmallows. I don’t know if they will taste good (why shouldn’t they? Chocolate and marshmallows??) I must admit though, a few of them kind of look like Shadow presents on a cookie. We’ll just give those to Uncle Richard! Just kidding!!

If I were to do this again, I might take the suggestion of using chocolate icing instead of chocolate unless I can figure out how to melt the darn stuff!

    Hey Karon, I don’t know what the recipe recommended for melting the chocolate but what if you tried using a fondue pot. Just a thought.

    These look great! I like the m&m touch!

    Did you use almond bark??? I didn’t have any trouble with mine at all, although almond bark is designed specifically to be melted in the microwave (or on the stove) and I’ve never had a problem with it.
