What I Did: We saw these cute cookies and thought they would be fun to make. We used store bought dough and frosting and could not find the very specific candy required for the recipe so our penguins are a little chubby.

My Result:

Next Time I Will: I doubt we will ever make these again but we might consider using a thiner icing…

What I Did: I wanted to re-create these cute rice krispie reindeer at a family Christmas Eve party.

My Result:

Next Time I Will: We tried to shape the rice krispies when they were still warm. I think they need to cool first before molding them. I am still not sure how you would ever get them to stand up on pretzel feet.

What I Did: I thought this would be an easy, no-cook way to make cookies for my contribution to the dessert display at our annual progressive dinner. The “lids” kept falling off or I didn’t realize the cookies were cracked so they broke apart as I was dipping them. Or they slipped off the stick. Ugg! At this point, I’m still wondering “How does she. . .”

My Result:

Next Time I Will: I guess it wasn’t a complete fail, my kids got to eat that pile of chocolate and Oreos – which is more than I would normally allow them to have in one sitting. No, I don’t think I’ll attempt this again.

What I Did: Thought these looked pretty. Not sure what happened. Used store bought dough. The other cookie on sheet shows how huge the “fail” cookies got.
