"Elsa's Ice" Rock Candy



Disney's Frozen II is coming out in theaters this week! Elsa's Ice Candy is perfect to make for a Disney's Frozen themed Party or just for fun. I made this for a fun treat for my kids and they loved in.



Ingredients:
  • 1-3/4 cups Granulated Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Light Corn Syrup
  • 1/2 cup Water
  • Food Coloring 
  • 1/2 tsp. Flavoring
  • Powdered Sugar for coating
*Other materials you will need include a sauce pan, baking sheet, and candy thermometer. 

Directions:
  1. Lightly spray a baking sheet or place a silicone baking mat on a baking sheet. 
  2. Add sugar, corn syrup, and water to a sauce pan. Bring to a boil while stirring constantly to dissolve sugar. Once it is boiling you can stop stirring. Let it keep boiling until it reaches 300℉ on your candy thermometer. 
  3. Once the temperature reaches 300℉ remove it from the heat. Working quickly, add the food coloring and flavor. I used strawberry flavor and a few drops of blue gel food coloring, so it ended up tasting like cotton candy. Stir quickly and pour onto your prepared baking sheet. Tip the sheet frpm side to side to help spread the candy and tap the sheet lightly to remove bubbles. 
  4. Allow the candy to cool and harden completely, about 30 minutes.
  5. Flip the baking sheet over to remove the candy. Use a hammer or something sturdy to break your candy into desired size pieces. 
  6. Coat your candy pieces in powdered sugar. This will stop it from being sticky. If you want cleaner or more clear looking pieces, use a lint free cloth to rub some of the powdered sugar off. 
  7. Keep in an air tight container. Enjoy!

Tips/variations:
*You can make your candy any color or flavor. This could be an easy treat to add to any themed party. I love to have red cinnamon candy during the holidays.  
*Be careful when breaking the candy, it will be a little sharp.

Snowman made with Birch Logs



This is so cute and rustic! 

Great way to add some winter decor to your home!



Materials:
  • Birch Logs, 1 large, 1 medium, 2 small, and 1 slice. 
  • 1 Wood dowel (1/4 inch)
  • Drill with a bit slightly bigger than your dowel
  • Wood Glue
  • Fabric for a scarf and bow ( I used Flannel)
  • Acrylic Paint
  • Craft Glue or Hot Glue
  • 2-3 Small Black Buttons
Directions:
  1. Get your logs cut and sand them if needed. If you find a small one with a branch piece sticking out you can use it for the nose. 
  2. Drill a hole half way through the center of your largest log. Drill a hole, in the center, all the way through the medium log, 1 small log, and the slice. Drill a hole half way through the last small log. 
  3. Now put the dowel through and stack your logs large, medium, small, slice, and small. Add wood glue in the drilled holes if you would like it to be sturdy. You may need to cut down your dowel to make it the right length. 
  4. Paint on a snowman face. I just did the the eyes because I had a branch piece for the nose and didn't want to add a mouth. If you do not have a branch sticking out just paint on a carrot nose. Make it the way you want!
  5. Use your fabric to make a scarf and a small bow for the hat.
  6. Glue on your bow for the hat and the buttons. 
  7. Now you are done and have a cute little snowman to decorate with or even give as a gift!
