My turn to write! This is Helen, the mother of six, and the hands-on laborer in this endeavor. We are so excited to launch our Hot Cocoa Bombs in just a few weeks at the Ugly Sweater Express Craft Show here in Phoenix! If you are in Phoenix, you should all come. There is going to be all kinds of awesome creations there, all displayed in a beautiful home with a lot of wonderful, creative people. You will be able to purchase a Hot Cocoa Bomb to drink while you shop, or you can take some with you for your whole family to enjoy.
I like to call myself a frustrated perfectionist because nothing I make ever seems perfect enough for me to present to the public, even though everyone else assures me my creations are wonderful. Because I am like this, I keep tweaking everything up until the last minute. I looked at the pictures that Lindsey posted last week of the bombs, and I just was not happy with the look of the Mint Chocolate flavored ones. So, I made a few changes...
What do you think? Those are the Christmas Peppermint Hershey Kisses all chopped up, adding their minty taste to the finished product as well as looking so much cuter, I think.
I am now working on a new idea, suggested by my smart husband! I love the idea and hope that I can make it work as well as it looks in my mind! Check back later in the week (I hope) and find out how they turn out!
