So, tomorrow is "Valentine's Day" at the kids schools. I guess the powers that be scheduled the holiday on a Friday so they could minimize the craziness of the sugar celebration.
I really wanted to make oreo lollipops. I did a little research and it sounded easy enough. Um, not so much. Oh, sure - I bought "Wilton" chocolate wafers and they melt beautifully. The plan was for me to separate the oreos (I had a 50% success rate) and "glue" a lollipop stick with a dollop of melted chocolate. It was a colossal mess. The cookies cracked and wobbled - and the sticks pulled right out. This was obviously not the most practical use of my time, since I had to make 95. Grrrrr.....
I thought about just running to Giant to buy ready-made Valentine's candy bags - but I just sucked it up and dipped the oreos in chocolate [without the lollipop sticks].
Hopefully the kids have low expectations.
