Springtime Cookie Candies


 Oh what fun to have a Springtime tea on my granny square throw that I made.  I'm using my pretty painted teacups that my late Great Aunt Kitty gave me.  We are having the most delicious little treats!  Aren't the pretty, too?  You make these cookie candies from a mold that you use the melted chocolates in,  and then place a sandwich type cookie into the mold.  They are pure heaven!


 This little lady head vase is one that my dear daughter gave me awhile back.  I planted her head with some cheery primroses.

Cissy is busy "painting" into the mold before placing the cookie.  She used a lollipop stick for "painting".



Didn't her cookie candies turn out so beautiful?!  If you don't want to change colors, you can just use one color and they still look oh so pretty.

 

 Ella and Avery came for a visit, too, and they made some treats to take home.  I did end up buying some paint brushes that I will use for just chocolates.


Here's little two-year-old Harper, after spending the night at my house.  Soon this little one will be enjoying Nana's cooking camp! Right now she loves eating her "Nana Bread",  which I make from a starter that dates back to the Civil War. She begs her parents for the bread!

This is the mold that I bought for $1.99 (of course I'm so thrifty that I even used a coupon!).  

 

Thank you for your visit!  xo





I am sharing this with these lovely parties:

  24. I didn't realize where the cookie part came in until I saw the mold - what a novel idea!
    So, you have bread starter that dates back that many years? How interesting.
    Hugs,

  25. Oh my goodness...could these candy cookies (or cookie candies??) be any cuter? I can only imagine how delicious they are. And these little darlings can't get much cuter either! Happy Tuesday!

  26. Those cookie candies look so pretty. What fun you have with your grandchildren. They are just as cute as can be!

  27. Oh those babies of yours look like they are having a grand time with their cookie/candies. Love how they turned out. Oh yes my friend, I will slap a coupon out quick and no matter if the item is only $1.99! GI have quite a few candy molds but have never painted the inside. I might need to figure this one out too. You have the most fun with your grands. Love it. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  28. Those molds are really cute. My daughter loves decorating cookies and even though she's 21, I think she'd like decorating with that as much as your grandkids :)

    How neat that you have a starter that dates back that far!

  30. The granny square throw is beautiful, Kitty. I love the colors you used. And the teacups ... gorgeous! These candies with the built-in cookies look so fresh and springlike. I would never have thought of doing this. Thanks for sharing! All of the granddaughters are beautiful, too. (And the grandsons, as we saw in the shamrock spritz post, are handsome!) You are blessed to have them near enough to visit you often.
