12 Days of Christmas Day 1 Today!

Welcome to the 12 Days of Christmas! I'm so excited to share with you. I have 1/2 off the Beloved Dress and a great Christmas candy recipe. And don't forget to visit Ellie Inspired for lots of great prizes! Thanks so much for inviting me to play along Laura.
 I have a new cover for the Beloved Dress! I'm loving this one. Such a sweet dress for Christmas. And this weekend only, it's half price! This dress will not be marked down this much again before Christmas. Already marked down on Etsy, just purchase either the e-pattern or the paper pattern and you're on your way to the cutest Christmas dress ever.
 So while you're at it, you may as well add Beloved for Dolls. After all, what little girl doesn't want to match her doll?

 And now for the fun part! Christmas time is busy. And there are parties. And sometimes one sneaks up on you. It's not just me is it? So here is an easy last-minute recipe. Just buy these ingredients today and keep them on hand. They are so good you'll have a hard time bringing them to the party. The caramel kind of makes the marshmallow start to melt so you get a little taste of summer bonfire in there!

 You will need:
regular size marshmallows
white chocolate
rice cereal
 1. Melt the caramels over low heat. Put a toothpick in a marshmallow to help you coat it.
 2. Coat the marshmallow in caramel.
 3. Roll the caramel coated marshmallow in the rice cereal.
 4. Let sit on a piece of wax paper. I spray the paper with nonstitck cooking spray just to make sure.
 5. Melt the white chocolate and drizzle over the marshmallows. This is definitely the hard part. I found that putting the chocolate in a bowl and microwaving for 30 second intervals works best. Don't microwave too long or it seizes up and won't drizzle at all!

That's a beautiful dress. I really love the look in the teal and red. It would be absolutely beautiful using a nice white fabric and doing machine embroidery along the edges of the skirt areas and bodice.

Thank you for the recipe too. That looks really yummy.

Hmmmm???? only works if you don't say something.
I love your blog, it looks delightful. Your dress is gorgeous...and the treats so yummmy. I'm filing that recipe with some from Pioneer Woman and her Chocalate show for Thanksgiving weekend with Grandsons and that sweet caramel will just top off the wonderful chocalates...don't you think?
