The other night . . .
I asked my 9 year old daughter Hattie to pick a recipe or two
from an old Martha Stewart Holiday issue I had sitting on the counter . . .
I thought it would be fun to make some holiday goodies together!
Hattie sat at the table a long time!!
She then came back with this huge list – and I mean HUGE . . .
starting with these very cool marshmallow snowflakes!
Hmmm – I thought . . .
I have never made marshmallows before . . .
Let’s just say it was an absolute BLAST . . .
from watching the mixture become this white . . . thick . . . sticky foam-like substance . . .
to spreading it in a pan and sprinkling them with powdered sugar . . . just like snow . . .
and then cutting them up into fun holiday shapes . . .
The stars were our favorite!!
Yes – I truly felt like a kid again . . . laughing and smiling the whole time . . .
playing – like a child!!
I am not really sure who had more fun – Hattie or myself!
I just know that I can’t wait to try them in some hot cocoa!!
Are you dreaming of a White Christmas? I know I am!!
And – if the snow doesn’t come . . .
you will find me making more of these – perhaps in the shape of a snowman! 🙂
Happy Holidays everyone! Peace and Blessings to all of you!!
