Candy Cane Brownie Lollipops

Candy Cane Brownie Lollipops

1 pkg of brownie mix (plus ingredients to make brownies)
24 candy canes
10 oz. chocolate flavored almond bark
additional decorations such as red sprinkles
mini cupcake liners

1. Line medium sheet pan with 13-in piece of parchment paper; lightly spray with nonstick cooking spray and set aside. Prepare brownie mix according to package and after baked let cool for 20 minutes or until slightly warm.

2. Meanwhile, cut off straight ends of candy canes to form 4 1/2 inch sticks. Place candy cane tops into a ziploc bag and crush using a flat side of a large knife, set aside.

3. Using a medium scoop, scoop brownie into 24 rounded scoops, packing brownie into scoops using hands (the more you place with it the more "doughy" it feels). Roll brownie scoops into smooth round balls. Insert candy cane sticks into centers of balls, mounding brownie around stick.

4. Place almond bark into Small Batter Bowl; microwave according to directions until melted and smooth. Spoon melted bark evenly over each brownie ball, turning to coat completely. Allow excess bark to drip off. Dip into reserved crushed candy canes or additional decorations and stand upright on parchment paper. Repeat with additional almond bark, lollipops and crushed candy. Let stand until set. Place into miniature cupcake liners.

I found this great recipe in an old Pampered Chef Holiday Cookbook and will probably try all the recipes at one point or another because they're all just so delicious looking!

Happy Holiday Baking,
Jenna

A Mother's Prayer

Lord bless my home and anyone who enters. Lead me daily so that I am always aware of You! Whether educating my kids, cooking or cleaning may my attitude always be that of a servant. Give me the words to guide my children to You, to know You, Your character and love You, Lord. Please teach to have patience and to always be learning. Lord mold me through each stage of life so I am continually growing and pursuing You no matter what. Lord I want to be a great mom and wife and I know that if I look only to You for help that I can accomplish this, the love for my family that I desire to show them. Lord I'm amazed by You and I love You. Amen.

Full of Life, Full of Love

"The spirited child-often called "difficult" or "strong-willed"--possesses traits we value in adults yet find challenging in children. Research shows that spirited kids are wired to be "more"-by temperament, they are more intense, sensitive, perceptive, persistent, and uncomfortable with change than the average child." It seems as though we have three, and they are very much like me. What does this mean? I need to be compassionate, consistent, confident, controlled, all with a gentle yet firm approach. Yes my plate is full.

Motherhood: A rigorous training ground

What an awesome responsibility mothers have to their children. Cultural stereotypes promote the idea that giving birth miraculously endows women with kindness, compassion, and goodness. But we all know better. Many of us can witness that we are made more aware of our weaknesses and impatience after becoming mothers than we were before. Godliness and generosity are not prerequisites of giving birth; they are characteristics that God hones and whittles into our character over time. Motherhood provides a rigorous training ground where we can display practice and model the disciplines of love, honesty, and compassion before our children. --Rebecca Laird
