1 lb package of candy quick coating, in white chocolate or vanilla flavor.
Pretzel Sticks
Orange Food Coloring
Edible Eye Decorations
Mini Reese's cups, cut in half


Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or foil.

Melt your candy coating in the microwave. Stir every 30 seconds until it is smooth.

Take about 2 spoonfuls of the melted white coating and place it in a baggie with one drop of food coloring. Make a tiny cut in the corner of the baggie and make tiny little carrots for the noses.

Spread the melted white candy coating on the lined cookie sheet.

Add Reese's halves to make hats, adding eyes below them, an orange 'carrot' nose, stick pretzel arms, and add M&M's for buttons.

Keep spacing in mind as you make these, as after it hardens, you will break them into chunks.
This should set in the refrigerator for an hour to harden, maybe longer depending on how thick you spread the white candy base.

Strawberry Watermelon Slushie

I picked up some fresh fruit this week from a local farmer and started plotting the perfect way to use my watermelon right away! What I came up with did not leave my family disappointed! My husband and I love watermelon. My daughter is interested in it, but not sure if she is a fan yet. My son normally won't touch it.

I made this Strawberry Watermelon Slushie from 2 ingredients and it was an amazingly simple, sweet summer time treat! I am giving you 2 recipes to make it also, just in case you require instant gratification. 

3 cups of watermelon, cut into chunks 
10 fresh strawberries (stemmed)

Place your chunks of watermelon into the freezer for about 30 minutes.
Next place frozen chunks of watermelon and fresh strawberries into a blender on a medium to high setting, blend until smooth.

Pour into a glass and enjoy!
