Christmas Cards and Cookies Blog Hop - Dec. 3-4, 2011 (Day 1)

Welcome Friends and Welcome to my Blog!  
If you are here for the Christmas Cards and Cookies Blog Hop you are in the right place but if you want to go to Christmas Card Blog Hop or Jen's Birthday Blog Hop please scroll down ...thanks! :)

Welcome to Round One of the Christmas Cards & Cookies Blog Hop! You should have come from Jennifer's blog . If you are starting here and wish to hop from the beginning of the hop, please visit Dena’s blog :  http://missdjones.blogspot.com
 
There was so much response to the Christmas Cards & Cookies Blog Hop that it had to be split between two weekends. This is Round One and begins Saturday, Dec. 3rd, continuing through Sunday, Dec. 4th. Round Two will be held next weekend. We have a talented group of women who love papercrafting and baking. Each of them is sharing a recipe for a yummy Christmas treat along with a Christmas card or tag. Hopefully, you’ll pick up some great ideas for your own Christmas gift giving this season. So, grab a cup of coffee, sit back, and enjoy!
 

Here is my project : I decided to do a simple tag to attach to the glad treat box that I am giving to a friend with my goodies which is my yummy Peanut Butter Flake Candy.  The recipe is below and its so easy I make at least 5 batches of this every Christmas....everyone loves it.  Don't take long at all and you can put the goodies in a nice treat box of your own.  



Here is the recipe for the tag...I use my favorite sizzix die tag cut out and inked it up with red ink then I stamped it with some swirlys and then I put one of my dollar stamps I have found last year and stamped it with versa mark then embossed it with red embossing powder, then stickled the gems all over with pizzaz and then I also put snowflakes here with the gems and then kinds of ink spot it with my brush and then put red ribbon on it...easy peasy! but pretty...
Here is the recipe for the Peanut Butter Flake Candy.
1 cup Light Karo Syrup
1 cup sugar
1 cup Peanut Butter (Creamy or Crunch) *I use them both but in separate batches...
5 cups Corn Flakes


Put Sugar and Karo syrup in a sauce pan (med heat) Bring to boil for approx 1 minute. Then add peanut butter and stir well. Add cornflakes. Stir again to make sure evenly coated. Pour onto cookie sheet and let set/cool, then break apart and put in containers. (I used the Glad containers - they are perfect! )

Thanks so much for stopping by! Please be sure to visit Susan's blog next to see what she has to share with you!

In His Love,
Be Inspired,
Kari

Oh yikes, sorry you're having so much trouble with Blogger .. I will stop back to see the pics. Hopefully, you'll have better luck today. Sometimes when that happens to me, I switch browsers. I've found that every once in a while, neither Blogger nor Face Book cooperates well with Internet Explorer, so I switch then to Mozilla Firefox, etc.

Try it!

Hi Kari, this tag is soooo beautiful!! I have to try this.
My gma made "corn flake bars" all the time when I was a kid! I know the recipe (almost) by heart. We put them in a rectangle cake pan and after cooling, cut in to squares. Have you tried it with chocolate drizzles on top?

Leslie said...

Thanks for stopping by! I am totally going to try your recipe - sounds fantastic!! Great tag too!

Dena said...
