Pinterest, Enthusiasm , and Hilarity

During the holidays it seemed like everyone was Pinning (Pinterest) fun foods for parties and family.  My enthusiasm at the sight of these delicious looking foods got the better of me and I decided to give a few of them a try.   

My first fun food was Nutter Butter/Hershey Kisses Acorns.  Simple and a huge hit in the greater Lewis household.  I took them to my daughter's for a Thanksgiving treat and I didn't bring any of them home.  This success just fueled my enthusiasm. 

Now I'm ready to hit the big times.  I saw another pin showing Melting Snowman Sugar Cookies.  They were awesome looking.  What fun for all the kids and adults too.  Simple to make.  My family is a Sugar Cookie fan at Christmas so this will be fun to jazz them up a bit.

Made the cookies...

Made my own frosting...turned out too "dirty" looking to be snow so I sent Jay to the store to pick up some white icing.

This is where Jay and I started laughing...

I poured the icing on the cookies while they were still hot so they would look melted.  Oh, yes melting everywhere.

Then microwaved the marshmallows.  Safely got through that.

As I decorated the cookies Jay would come in and out of the kitchen laughing his head off.  I was so bad at the decorating at one point Jay said they look like they were bleeding.  I set that one aside for someone to eat before everyone arrived.

"Mom, they look like the Stay Puff Marshmallow Man from Ghostbusters."  Alright somehow the tickle boxes got turned over for both of us.

Jay started comparing them to some of the video games he plays. 

Okay, I finished.  I added some red sprinkles to the base to hopefully help them look a bit better.

The moment arrived for the family to see and taste them.

Okay, laughing at mom must be the new past time during Christmas.  LOL

Here's the real kicker...someone made a comment on how sad it was to see all melting snowmen.  Hannah looked sad after that.  The adults just rolled with laughter.  They did look rather sad.

Hey, they tasted good!

I think the family would rather I stick with paper crafting.

So my experiment of fun foods are over, UNTIL Spring.  Ha!  Look out family I am not deterred.  

Have a Crafty Day!
