Interesting. Part of a Christmas tree possibly?

A daycare possibly with the toys scattered.


Wondering how anyone could leave behind what

would appear perfectly good chairs and a bike?

A tiny apartment possibly?

And a candy always in our home of Christmas's

past. So colorful and pretty.

Very, very festive for sure.

I never liked these chair coverings. But I

must admit these are very elegant and

they sure fit the season.

What is there not to like about this picture?

The stockings are hung with care, a warm,

warm fire and Grandma reading us a neat

book and a quilt so fitting for her.

A bit of a chocolate fix for you.

Do you see, do you hear what I hear?

The reason for the season

I see the copyright in the lower right-hand

corner is Hobby Lobby. Makes me want to

run right out and buy these two cuties.

What You’ll Need:

  • Two 12 oz. bags Nestle Premier White Morsels

  • 1 1/4 cups Crushed Candy Canes  {approx. 22 – 28

  • standard sized candy canes}

  • Cookie Sheet lined with Non-Stick Aluminum Foil  {if using regular

  •  aluminum foil, spray with Pam cooking spray}

  • Optional: 16 oz wide mouth Mason Jars
  • if you’ll be giving some as a Gift in a Jar!

  • Unwrap Candy Canes and place in freezer-size Ziploc Bag

  • Crush candy canes by rolling over the bag with a Rolling Pin, until you

  •  have them to your desired texture {small little chunks}

  • Place White Chocolate baking chips in large microwave-safe bowl, and

  •  microwave for 45 seconds, Stir, then microwave in increments of 30

  •  seconds, stirring between each time, until chocolate is melted.

  • Stir in 1/2 of crushed candy canes to melted chocolate, then spread out

  •  evenly on your foil-lined cookie sheet.  {*I used Non-Stick Aluminum

  •  Foil, but if using regular aluminum foil,

  • spray with nonstick cooking spray first}
  • Once mixture has been spread out, sprinkle evenly with remaining 1/2 of

  •  crushed candy cane pieces.
  • Place in refrigerator for a minimum of 1 hour to let harden.

If you happen to over-salt a pot of soup,

just drop in a peeled potato. They say the

potato will absorb some of the excess salt.

You took the time, thank you!

What a wonderful feeling

this can be!

Here is hoping everyone had a good weekend.

Enjoy this day, each one is a gift.

And now till another time, be safe in

all you do. Be aware of everything and

everyone around you at all times. A

very good habit .... take care!
