Live Blogging: HPP Update

Ack!  It is 9:36 a.m and I’ve encountered my first disaster.  The no bake cookies totally failed.  Check it out.


The marshmallows would not melt!  The butter began to caramelize and just slosh around the marshmallows and not combine like the recipe said.  I spilled some of the chocolate chips on the stove but it didn’t matter, the chocolate seized up when I tried to add it to the marshmallow/butter mess.  I went ahead and added in the other ingredients, but there was no “dropping” onto the waxed paper…I had to scoop the mess up and mold it with my hand, place it on the paper and smoosh a candy corn on top.

It’s not all bad news!  The Witches Fingers dough turned out very nicely and ds3 and ds4 have awakened and joined in on the fun.  Too cute, isn’t he?
