This sweet granddaughter spent two nights with me and we made lots of treats! Cissy even set the table for a special Valentine Tea for the two of us. Didn't she decorate the table so pretty? The tea took place in my bedroom at the kids' card table. For our tea, we made strawberry shortcakes from her cookbook that I gave her for Christmas, and I let her choose the recipe.
We made heart-shaped pizza, which Cissy shaped with her own hands. Can you tell which end is hers? She only likes cheese pizza!
Chocolate dipped pretzel rods were another fun treat to make. We used a quart canning jar to heat the chocolate and then we tilted it on it's side to coat the pretzel rods. A tall glass would work, too. We then coated the chocolate with sprinkles before the chocolate set, and placed them on wax paper to harden.
Just look at her bouquet of pretzel rods to take home! We packaged them in pretzel rod wrappers that I had purchased several years ago, in the candy section of either Michael's or JoAnn's. Cissy's mom (my daughter) put the pretzel rods in a pretty pitcher as a Valentine decoration.
I am sharing this with these lovely parties:
