Tray & Hook Re-dos

This is the reason I started this thing - so I could participate in all these great DIY parties!! Here is a tray that I bought originally unfinished wood. I painted it black
then I modge-podged some damask paper in the bottom - I love it!

I also bought these hooks at the Dollar Tree about 72 years ago (really it was about 2 years ago, but a ridiculous amount of time to procrastinate doing a project).
then I used photoshop to make a picture with a bible verse. I then printed & trimmed them and modge-podged them to the front of the hook thingy. Now they are in my kids bathroom for their towels!

Does that really cute background look familiar??

Can I just say...YUM!!!

I tried this recipe from Our Creative Life, calling for saltine crackers as a main ingredient. A little sweet...a little salty...a lot of AWESOME!!

It has a perfect rich buttery toffee flavor and they are very difficult to stop eating! By the time anyone reads this I will be five pounds heavier.

Mine do not look as thick as hers. I used a larger baking sheet and more saltines. I also used mini chocolate chips instead of the normal ones (that is what I had laying around)and they didn't melt very well. These are really yummy!


1 1/4 cups (2 1/2 sticks) butter,

divided 35 to 40 saltine crackers

1 cup packed dark brown sugar

1 can Sweetened Condensed Milk

1 1/2 cups (9 oz) Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips

3/4 cup finely chopped walnuts

PREHEAT oven to 425° F.
Line 15 x 10-inch jelly-roll pan with heavy-duty foil.
MELT 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter in medium saucepan. Pour into prepared jelly-roll pan. Arrange crackers over butter, breaking crackers to fit empty spaces. MELT remaining butter in same saucepan; add sugar. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to low; cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in sweetened condensed milk. Pour over crackers. BAKE for 10 to 12 minutes or until mixture is bubbly and slightly darkened. Remove from oven; cool for 1 minute. SPRINKLE with morsels. Let stand for 5 minutes or until morsels are shiny; spread evenly. Sprinkle with nuts; press into chocolate.

Cool in pan on wire rack for 30 minutes. Refrigerate for about 30 minutes or until chocolate is set. Remove foil; cut into pieces.
Enjoy & don't hate me five pounds from now!
