Back to work!

Wishing you all a wonderful and creative 2012!

My holiday consisted of good food, great company and just the joy of spending some time with my family.
One of my favourite Christmas surprises was an e-reader, so I actually had a reading day!

After some much needed and thoroughly enjoyed "down-time", it is time to get busy in the Studio!
I am up to my elbows in fun stuff, my imagination is revitalized and my winter workshops will be revealed in the coming week, so keep checking back.

Today, I want to share a treat with you all that is simple to prepare and very satisfying to those of us who enjoy a bit of a salty-sweet treat. If these are against any of your resolutions, good luck with that!...besides these are fat-free, or good fat, or high protein, or vegetarian, or something good....

Keep the ingredients in the cupboard (maybe bury the Rolo's in the back or bottom of your freezer....) and in 7 minutes you are serving up these Turtle-like goodies.
  • Simply unwrap your Rolo's (the ones in the rolls in candy bar section aren't individually wrapped, so one less step!)
  • Place pretzels in single layer on baking sheet (parchment paper makes for easy clean-up, if you don't have a kitchen pixie)
  • Top each pretzel with a Rolo, bake at 350deg for 3-5 minutes until chocolate is soft, but not completely melted.
  • Remove from oven, squish down the Rolo with a nut!
Let careful if you lift before they are firm because they can be a little top heavy & roll over on the Rolo. You may want to refrigerate to make sure they are firm.

Make your own variations with your favourite ingredients (or whatever you have on hand)
This is the M&M & Hershey Kiss version. Pick the candy and colours for your theme.

Through the month of January, I'm going to reveal lots of cool and free things to inspire some ideas for you to try in the warmth & comfort of your home ....
