Santa Hat Pretzels

This is a great edible craft for kids. I’ve used this recipe while babysitting a 6 and 3 year old and they both loved it.

Some tips for doing this craft with kids:

Santa Hat Pretzel
  • Place a sheet of wax paper in front of each kid so that the sprinkles and white chocolate don’t go all over the place
  • To avoid sticky fingers, have an adult dunk the pretzels in the white chocolate and then place the pretzels on the wax paper in front of each kid
  • Pour about 1/4 cup of the sprinkles into a small bowl for each kid and refill when needed

These pretzels look and taste great! Enjoy!


  • Mini pretzels
  • Hershey’s Premier White Chips (creamy vanilla flavored)
  • Jar of red sprinkles
  • Mini marshmallows

Step 1: Pour 1 cup of the Hershey’s White Chips into a small microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high for 30 seconds, stir, and microwave in 15 second burst until the chips are completely melted.

Step 2: Holding onto the bottom of the pretzel, dunk the top of the pretzel into the melted white chips. Pull the pretzel out and place onto wax paper.

Step 3: Sprinkle the red sprinkle over the coated part of the pretzel.

Step 4: Cut a mini marshmallow in half. Stick the marshmallow onto the coated part of the pretzel.

Repeat until your heart is content!

Carrot Cake with Vanilla Cream Cheese Frosting

I’ve updated my carrot cake recipe and now it’s even more delicious! Take a look, try it out, and let me know what you think!


I’m not a huge sweets fan, but I LOVE this carrot cake recipe. There’s just something about the combination of cream cheese frosting and carrot cake that is oh so delicious. I’ve cut back on the amount of oil and sugar used in traditional carrot cakes (you won’t miss it, I promise!) so there is less guilt when you go back for seconds, and you will. I also don’t believe in adding raisins or nuts or any other funny business to carrot cake. I think additions like those ruin the cake. I hope you love this recipe as much as I do. It’s always a big hit at parties and work events.

Chances are you noticed that I have a page devoted to Medifast Recipes. They’re actually the most popular recipes on this blog. I did try Medifast for a short period of time, as well as Nutrisystem.

Dieting is tricky. There is no universal “you’re guaranteed to lose weight on this plan!” or “lose weight without trying!” plan. Every diet effects everyone in a different way. I’ve created a new page devoted to my experiences with dieting, starting with Medifast and Nutrisystem. If you’re interested in learning about my experiences or want to read an honest review about Medifast or Nutrisytem, please visit my Dieting page. Over time, as I try other diets (if I try other diets), I’ll add my reviews to this page. If you have any questions about the diets or my experiences, please don’t hesitate to ask. I’m here to help : )
