The event I had been dreading from the beginning of my campaign was last night and I cannot properly express how relieved I am that it is done. The Marshall Chamber hosted a candidate forum/debate last night and it was the only aspect of running for public office that caused me to lose sleep at night. I prepared as much as I could but you can only prepare so much when you don't know what the questions will be! My kids are looking forward to watching it when it's on t.v. later in the week, but I can't think of anything more horrible. It was stressful enough having to live through it once, I don't need to see it again!
Now that my political future is completely in the hands of the voters, I have time to make some fun stuff with my kids like these adorable cookies. When I saw them on a blog, I quickly added Nutter Butters to my shopping list because they were just too cute not to try! I was in charge of the snack/activity at play group this week and we made these with our kids. Lots of fun and messy hands!
Nutter Butter Ghosts
1 pkg Nutter Butter cookies
white almond bark
mini chocolate chips
1. Melt the almond bark in your microwave according to package directions with around a tablespoon of shortening added. This will help thin the bark so it will properly coat the cookies.
2. Dip each cookie into the melted bark, shake off the excess and place on wax paper to dry. While the coating is still wet, add chocolate chips for eyes and melted chocolate chips in a squeeze bottle or bag for the mouths.
