Ice Cream Christmas Ornaments

530298_477419642310148_1531513395_nPreform these in advance and pull them out with lots of ohhs and ahhs.

Make round scoops of ice cream and roll bottom into candy sprinkles – think all red, all green, green and red, multi (like is shown). On the side take Reece’s Peanut Butter cuts (small) and poke a hole on one side and then directly across from the other. Take a piece of string licorice and make a loop as the ornament hanger. Freeze well before you serve.

Bake to Make Hard Boiled Eggs

Bake in a cupcake tin at 325 for 30 minutes. Eggs will have a “creamier” texture on the inside and the shell can obtain slight browning where the egg hits the edges o the cupcake pan. This idea is great to prepare eggs to color or when you need many and already are using all of your burners. This is a great idea also to prepare what you need for few days to have for that extra protein for a lunch. When you remove them from the oven immediately submerge them into an ice bath, which will allow for easy peeling when you are ready to do so.

End The Party For Uninvited Guests

It happens every time….. you get unwanted and uninvited guests….. well, I can’t help you with them. BUT, I can help save drinks at your next outdoor party with this great idea. Its also very cheap so that is also a bonus. Have printed cupcake cups stashed all around for your guests to top their drink off with to prevent bugs from slipping into their drinks. You can go ahead and poke a hole through the middle of the bottom so your guests can easily slip them over their straw (you can use a small dowel or sharpened pencil). This also gives you an area to write each persons name on the top around the straw so people don’t lose their drinks and have to get another and waste your money by wasting drinks…. especially at a children’s party. Thank me later…..

Easter eggs:
1. Boil eggs.
2. Crack shell by tapping it lightly against hard surface. Make sure you do not crack it too hard as desired effect will not happen.
3. Dip in colored water (food color). Keep submerged for twice the time the instructions say to allow the egg to take coloring inside the egg.
4. Peel shell off and serve or serve as they are and let your guests find the surprise inside.
