Sweet Winter Wonderland

Did you watch any football this weekend?  I couldn’t believe the pro games on the east coast … fields covered in snow, facemasks  filled with snow and players in short-sleeved shirts!!!  I was home in my sweatpants, sweatshirt and Uggs … inside the heated house … as I tell my kids, “I’m old and cold”!  I braved the elements on Saturday … stayed warm and cozy on Sunday.  This morning was 34°, pretty chilly for Los Angeles and snow in the mountains … it must be winter!

I kept myself busy …

Snowman Christmas Tree Gumballs

These little guys have been in my head for sometime … came all together after seeing Love from the Oven’s Truffles .  I had Peppermint Oreos that were just waiting to be used!

The snowmen make me smile and the trees remind me of something that would grow in Whoville or Candy Land!  Hope you like the snowmen and trees as much as I do … of course, they are easy peasy to make 😉

Here is what you will need for this edible craft project …

Helpful hint … if you have problems with candy slipping and not sticking, pull it away for a moment, then try again!

Thank you to Miss CandiQuik and SweetWorks for some of the supplies to create my indoor Sweet Winter Wonderland!
