12 Days of Christmas Crafts - Day 5 - The Crafty Nest

**Tuesday Tutorials has been postponed until next Tuesday**

Excited for day five of the 12 Days of Christmas Crafts? I am, I am! Today we have Vanessa, from The Crafty Nest, who will be sharing a very sweet treat with us today! Yum, yum! I am definitely going to be making these. Welcome Vanessa!

Hey guys! I'm Vanessa from The Crafty Nest, where I blog about my love for glue guns and glitter. I suffer from craft ADHD, regularly working on at least 10 projects at the same time. My craft room tends to look like a tornado blew through it. I live in the Arizona desert with my husband (aka Mr. Crafty Nest), our son Logan and our 2 cats. I'd love for you to stop by my blog! A huge thanks to Audra for having me over at her lovely blog.

I thought I'd show you how to make candy cane marshmallow pops. After all, everything tastes better on a stick. These pops are super easy to make and your wee little ones can help you. Even my 16 month old got in on the candy cane crushing action. Eat these while sipping on some hot chocolate. Heck, plop one in your hot chocolate and use as a stir. Enjoy!

Step 1: Finely crush 6 candy canes in a food processor or place candy canes in a large zip lock bag and crush with a rolling pin. Leave the candy cane pieces a bit chunky.

Step 2: Set out your ingredients (marshmallows, lollipop sticks, chocolate chips, crushed candy canes) so you are ready to start dipping.

Step 3: Melt chocolate chips according to the directions on the bag. I melted my chips in the microwave for 1 minute, stirred, melted for an additional 30 seconds, stirred, melted for a final 30 seconds and stirred. Every microwave will vary, so continue melting and mixing until you get the right consistency to start dipping.

Step 4: Stick a lollipop stick in a marshmallow and dip the marshmallow halfway in chocolate. It may be easier to hold on to the marshmallow, instead of the stick, while dipping.

Step 5: Dip the top of the chocolate covered marshmallow in the crushed candy canes.

Step 6: Stick the marshmallow pop in floral foam and allow the chocolate to dry.

    I was a HIV-AIDS patient and I got it from cheating on my wife. It was sort of a payback but a week later I was told by a friend that the person who I cheated with had the HIV-AIDS virus and did not tell me. I was so stupid by not using a condom I thought since he was an old school friend he was trustworthy. But I was wrong. I cried and cried. Two days later, I got a phone call from my friend and he told me about a person who is known by another friend, who can help me. I could not let my wife know what I was going through. I finally got his email address: and I emailed this man my story and he replied me immediately saying i should be calm and told me that everything will be OK. I could not come to terms with what I was hearing but then I concluded it did not matter because I was so broken I just needed help. I was going out of my mind literally. I was confused with what he was telling me, but I listened. He told me about some materials i need to buy that he needed to cast the spell and I said OK. I bought the materials to him, I sent down my picture to him and my positive result sheet and he replied me that i am going to be negative under 3days. I message Him every 2hours for 2day and I knew he thought that I was crazy but I did care I needed a shoulder. Behold, the third day he messaged me i should go for a test that i will be negative. My marriage could be broken because of a stupid mistake and my life was on the line. I remembered when I was going to get the results of my re-test I called him up again and told him that I was going to get my results today and his reply was “so" and that everything will be as he explained. I knew then that he was getting tired of me calling him, maybe I was wrong. Well I got my results and the first person I called was him - again. As he said hello I started to cry and cry. I could not believe it. I was given a second chance in life.This man is a great spiritual HIV/AIDS healer, his healing spell on aids healing is very powerful .please brothers and sister, contact Dr Ose
