On the 7th Day of Christmas: I dipped it…dipped it good!

On the 7th Day of Christmas…I dipped it!  I love to dip it!  
This is such a quick and easy way to get something festive out for Christmas!  Just go through your pantry and find anything dipable…jumbo marshmallows, pretzel rods, Oreos, gingerbread men…go nuts!  Then, all you do is melt some candy coating in the microwave (I used both white and milk chocolate for mine), dip your yummy treats, sprinkle them with festive sprinkles and let them dry on wax paper.  Your kids will LOVE doing this with you!  My kiddos are obsessed with dipping!
Need something quick to take to your kid’s school?  Dip it.  Need something to share with neighbors?  Dip it. Need something fun to munch on while watching Home Alone?  Dip it.  Need to bring something sweet to a party?  Dip it.
Let’s go over the steps one last time:
1. Find a few things to dip in your house.
2. Melt your candy coating (which can be found on the chocolate chip aisle) in the microwave.
3. Dip your treats in chocolate and then sprinkle them with something fun
4. Let them dry on wax paper
That’s it!  Look at my little taste-testers…

This Christmas, just dip it!
On the 1st Day of Christmas: I meal planned, ate Cranberry-Orange Cookies and shared Christmas cheer!
On the 2nd Day of Christmas: I made yummy Egg Nog Monkey Bread!
On the 3rd Day of Christmas: I made easy Rice Krispies Treats!
On the 4th Day of Christmas: I made Red Velvet Pancakes!
On the 5th Day of Christmas:  I made Hot Chocolate Cupcakes with Peppermint Cream Cheese Frosting
On the 6th Day of Christmas: I made Oreo Cheesecake Bites!

    For the Oreos, I use two forks and dunk them…for everything else, I just use my fingers. Sprinkles hide a multitude of sins!
