Pot o' Gold Coins



I made these Oreo gold coins, and it took me about 30 minutes! So easy!  

I am having a couple dinner parties, one includes 3 youngsters. I wanted to make something special for them. I had these little cauldrons from a previous Halloween party, they worked out perfect for the pot!

You can find spray and sprinkles at Michael's or Amazon. I found my sprinkles here.  I found my spray here.

Here's what you need and what I did!

1 package Oreo cookies (I used thin mint)
White chocolate
Gold sprinkles
Edible Gold spray mist
wax paper or parchment

Procedure-

Melt the chocolate

Dip each cookie partially in the white chocolate 

Dip each cookie into the sprinkles

Spray the other side of the cookie with the spray.

8 Year Blog-a-versary



Eight years ago March 7, 2012 I made the decision to dive into the blog world. With the help of a couple of family members I chose a name, and sitting on the veranda of our Ocho Rios cottage I alone created the web site. Trust that the "Sew whats cooking with Joan" website has changed dramatically, since that day. But, my goal to learn about the building of a website and implementing it, stimulating my brain and getting whats in that brain out to you has been so much fun and more successful than I would have ever imagine. Photography was never of interest to me, however, once I started taking the pictures of food, I became interested in improving the photography of that food.
