You will need

Pour a little corn syrup into a plate, then dip the rim of the cup into the syrup.  Next dip the rim of the cup into sprinkles that have been poured out onto a plate.  You can make the cups ahead of time and let them dry so once the party starts all you have to do is pour the drinks.

1st photo

What child does not like marshmallows-even more- cupcakes!  
Add a movie and you have a fun night with the whole family,
while eating these adorable popcorn cupcakes!

2ndSupplies:
Cake mix
White Frosting
Cupcake holders
Marshmallows
Paper
Red Marker
Tape
3rdInstructions:
Bake Cup cakes and let cool.
Frost cupcakes once they are cooled.
Apply the marshmallows on the top.
My 7 year old put them on the top-there is no specific way to make them look.
4thNext:
Make the striped muffin cups.
I drew out a pattern like this.
They have them online for free, but I decided to free hand mine.
5thI cut out the pattern and added stripes.  The stripes are 3 lines thick.
Meaning when I ran the marker across to make a stripe, I did so 3 different times to make a wider stripe.
I connected the two sides together with tape, which then formed a cup.
I dropped the cupcake into the cup.
6thALL DONE!

DO NOT PUT IN OVEN TO TOAST THE TOP OF THE MARSHMALLOWS!
Frosting will melt.  I tried this to see what would happen and I had   marshmallows and melted frosting everywhere. ha ha!
You can use a longer lighter and lightly toast the marshmallows, or a blow torch.  I chose to leave them plane.

They made my heart giggle when I saw them the first time.  My daughter and I had so much fun putting them together.
Perfect for a Circus Theme party too!

1st photoThis is such an easy and delicious dessert. 
2nd ingredientsIngredients:
16 Oreos
16 ounce container of Cool Whip
1 cup of chocolate fudge
1 package of chocolate instant pudding (smaller box)
12 ice cream sandwiches
8-10 Strawberries

Supplies:
8×8 pan
tin foil

Instructions:
Line the 8 x 8 pan with tin foil.
Unwrap all 12 ice cream sandwiches, and put them back in the freezer to be used later.
Crush up 16 oreos in a bag.
Slice strawberries
Warm up the 1 cup of chocolate fudge, and let cool a bit.
Put ½ of the cool whip in a bowl and mix in cooled fudge.  Stir in the chocolate pudding.  Add the oreos, yet leave out a little bit to sprinkle on the top of the cake.
Line the bottom of the 8 x 8 pan with 4 ice cream sandwiches side by side.
Put ½ the oreo-pudding mixture on top of the ice cream sandwiches.  Place sliced strawberries on top.
Repeat ice cream sandwiches, oreo-pudding mixture, and strawberries.
Next add last 4 ice cream sandwiches.
Cover with tin foil and place in Freezer for 4 hours.
After 4 hours-take the cake out of the freezer and put on a decorative platter-apply the remaining cool-whip on top and sides of ice cream sandwiches.  Sprinkle with remaining oreos and garnish with strawberries.

Hints:  Unwrap ice cream sandwiches prior to assembly, because they melt quickly.
Cut when completely done with a seratide knife.
3rd.  pan with tin foilI put the foil in the pan and made it large enough to bring around to the top of the
ice cream sandwiches while freezing for the 4 hours.

4th whip cream and chocolateWhip-cream and fudge.  If the fudge is too warm, the cream will melt.  Not a good thing.
5th oreoAdding pudding and oreos
6th sandwichesMaking the layers on the ice cream sandwiches.
finalSuper yummy and simple to make.

  I love Fudge!  It should be made all year round.  This recipe is super easy to make and delicious to eat.

Supplies Needed:
Big Metal Bowl
*  2 – 8 ounce Hershey candy bars. (The large one is only 7.5 ounces, so I buy the packet with 6 candy bars that are 1.5 ounces a piece)
*  1 bag of milk chocolate chips
*  ½ pound of mini marshmallows (The bag I buy is 16 ounces, so I guess-timate how much is half the bag)

Put all the ingredients in a large Metal Bowl.  Break up the chocolate bars into small pieces.  Set aside.

In a Heavy Sauce Pan:
*  4½ cups of cane sugar
*  1 cube of butter (½ cup)
*  1 can of evaporated milk (15 ounces)
*  Dash of Salt

Melt butter in a heavy sauce pan.  Next add milk, sugar and evaporated milk.  Stir constantly with a wooden spoon.  Once it begins to boil, stop stirring for 7 minutes.  This is why the pan needs to be heavy or it will scorch.  Once you have finished boiling the sugar mixture for 7 minutes.  Check is it is a soft ball stage, if it is, than pour the sugar mixture on top of the chocolate and marshmallows.

Add:
*   1 teaspoon of Vanilla
*   2-3 cups of walnuts (if you desire)

Stir the mixture all together until smooth.  Pour into a large buttered and wax paper pan and smooth out with a spatula.  Let cool.  Once cooled take a Heart Shaped cookie cutter and cut out mini-hearts.  I sprinkled pink sprinkles on top to add a bit of fun!

(When making candy,  Cane Sugar is the best to use.  The heat added to the sugar breaks it down to be smoother- My great-grandma only uses can.  However, you can use whatever you like.)

carmel in the waterSoft ball stage.  Drop sugar mixture from the spoon into a cup of cold water.  I do this two or three times during the 7 minutes.

carmel out of waterOnce the sugar mixture has been dropped into the cup.  Pinch it together.  It should be like soft taffy.

pinterest page  I saw this gift and thought how cool it would be to make for my husband for our anniversary.  Often I wonder if a day in my life does make a difference.  This is a fabulous reminder that every day does count!

Supplies Needed:
*Computer
*Printer
*8 x 10 picture frame
more instructionsWhen choosing a font, it helps to think of the style of the person to whom the gift will be for.  Does the person like curly letters,  simplistic, or traditional.  I love how there are so many different kinds of fonts to choose from.  A fun idea could be to change the font colors too.  In our family each child has a color that I typically used for them; blue for my 2nd child.  

frame and paper

 Frames are another area to personalize this gift.  One year we glued all different size buttons around the outside of a frame.  My kids loved to pick out the buttons and select just the right one.  Colored frames are great too.  You can refurbish an old frame by painting it. Many stores have discounted frames too.  The paper could be colored paper and written on with a marker, instead of using a computer paper and a printer.

instruction

 When taping, make sure you have the paper lined up exactly.  I have made this mistake one to many times.  Ha Ha!  

great gift

 I think this is a great gift of remembrance for so many different types of occasions.  I know my husband will love it!
Thanks to my niece, Emily, for this idea!
