Well we needed some winter themed stand ups for a window display we were working on. Lisa decided we should make some snowmen. It is a very easy project and just takes a few steps.
First I used MDF board to draw out the snowmen. You can use a large trashcan lid, or anything else circular. Another easy thing to do is put a tack in the center of the board with a piece of string to a pencil. This lets you draw a perfect (somewhat) circle.
After tracing them I simply cut them out with a jig saw.
Next We painted them white and added some cute little faces. We did this all by hand. After that we used some old 2×4 pieces we had laying around and formed a t-style base to keep them upright, this could be a little tricky but it worked out good.
Here is the finished product.
They look great in the window display too!
Well we wanted to make some delicious brownies, but we also have been wanting something with peppermint. So why not mix the two together and make a great Peppermint Pecan Dark Chocolate Brownie Cake! We had an initial setback in that we didn’t have any semi-sweet chocolate chips, so we decided to use Hershey’s Dark Chocolate kisses.
First set the oven to 350.
Next grease a 9×13 cake pan.
Peel your kisses so they are ready to go.
In your mixing bowl mix
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups of sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/4 cup of flour
1 cup of chopped pecans
In a microwave safe bowl or in your pan
Bag of Hershey Kisses
1 Cup of Butter (unsalted)
Heat slowly until all melted
Slowly combine with dry bowl, incorporating the chocolate and butter in.
Pour into your pan, bake for 25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Now lets make the topping.
Break up a package of candy canes.
1 package of cream cheese
1 cup of butter
Soften these in microwave
Put in a mixing bowl and add the peppermint candy canes.
Mix slowly combining with a whole bag of confectioners sugar.
This will give you a delicious pink frosting.
Frost the brownies and eat!
Very rich and very delicious.
