Snowball Marshmallow Pops

Snowball Marshmallow Pops - Lady Behind The Curtain

Snowball Marshmallow Pops are wonderful pillows of marshmallow encased in melted vanilla candy and dipped in sweet coconut.  The perfect one bite dessert. Because I made these Snowball Marshmallow Pops for my “frozen” theme party I decided to color my coconut.  If you have never colored coconut before it’s really easy.  All you do is put the amount of coconut you want to color in a zip top bag, squeeze in some food coloring, seal the bag and rub the coloring onto the coconut.  To achieve two colors of blue.  I dyed half of the coconut, poured it onto a … Continue reading

I am in love with these Snowflake Blueberry Gumdrops!  Get ready to IMPRESS your family and friends!  These gumdrops are so versatile, they can be whatever jello flavor you want, cut them with cookie cutters, make them with a mold to give as gummy lollipops or pour the mixture into a pan and cut them in squares.  These gumdrops are so much better than store bought.  Moist on the inside and crunchy from the sugar on the outside.  The PERFECT party treat!  Like my Cherry Gumdrops I made for Valentine’s Day. For these Snowflake Blueberry Gumdrops I used a snowflake … Continue reading

Blueberry Jello Poke Cupcakes

Blueberry Jello Poke Cupcakes - Lady Behind The Curtain

Blueberry Jello Poke Cupcakes are so much fun to eat.  With a wonderful whipped cream frosting and bursts of blueberry.   Perfect for a “frozen” themed party. The traditional poke cake is a full size cake with frozen whipped topping for the frosting.  I  made it in the form of a cupcake.  My frosting is made with homemade whipped cream and cream cheese.  Delicious, but not too sweet.  The blue jello dripping down the sides reminds me of icicles.  The Whipped Cream Frosting is also perfect on my Strawberry Shortcake Cupcakes. Some of the jello will go down to the bottom, … Continue reading
