12 Days of Christmas: Day 11

On the 11th Day of Christmas My Crafty Friends Gave to Me.........

A Crafty Gift Idea by Nancy Dynes ( TatteredTreasures on You Tube): Altered box and Iced Snowflakes

I was so excited when Patti and Doreen invited me to participate in their 12 Days of Christmas event! I created this altered box and set of Christmas ornaments to share with you. Today I’ll show you how to take a cereal box and some plastic packaging material and turn them into these vintage inspired ‘iced snowflake’ ornaments. I just love taking items we would normally toss out and upcycling them into something to treasure. My best wishes to all for a happy Christmas!

A Baking Idea by Patti Carrow:  Soda Cracker Cookies
This is a popular cookie at Christmas time in my house. This recipe was given to me by my Mother In Law. When she was alive she would make these every year and if she didn't the Grandkids would complain! I now am in charge of making these delicious cookies every year! I don't mind making them at all because they are my favorite too, and they are so easy to make even in large batches!

Joanne's Soda Cracker Cookie's
2 sticks of butter
1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 bag of semi sweet chocolate chips
soda crackers ( about 1-1/2 rows)
aluminum foil
baking sheet
medium saucepan
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Lay soda crackers in a single layer on foiled lined baking sheet. set aside. In a medium saucepan put the 2 sticks of butter and brown sugar. Bring to a boil on medium heat stirring constantly till all the butter is melted. When it starts to boil set your timer for exactly 3 minutes. Stir the butter/ brown sugar sauce for the 3 minutes. When the timer goes off remove from heat and pour over soda crackers. Spread evenly making sure each cracker is covered. Place in oven for exactly 7 minutes. Remove from oven after the 7 minutes is up and immediately sprinkle the chocolate chips on top. Wait a few minutes for the chips to melt and spread evenly. Refrigerate for several hours. remove from fridge and peal away the aluminum foil from the bottom carefully. Now break off pieces ( you can cut them if you want them even) and add to a container. Make sure you keep these babies in the fridge to keep them crunchy! 

These cookies make great gifts! 
Also, my kids still like to watch them bubble up when they are in the oven! They thought it was magic when they were younger! Think of it as 7 minutes of peace and quiet! 

Thank you Nancy for your amazing project!!!!

Day 10 winner is........
