Day 5... Break away from Box... Take out box

I have wanted some Chinese food for a while now. Since one of the teens eats it like its going out of style and the other teen gags at the thought- sight and smell of that sort of suggestion/smell. So I do not make much of it  - usually pick some of it up when the 'gag teen' is out of the house! LOL.. I am sure you have figured out which of the teens is which (boy vs. girl!).  I made these chinese take out boxes in masculine colors - put fortune cookies in them, with my chocolate.

3 fortune cookies with take out box
 This box can fit so much.. cupcake, muffin, 5 cookies (depending on size), 6 chocolate covered pretzels, countless Hershey Kisses -- endless.

My hearts are crimped and sponged.
 I first stuffed it with Chocolate covered Pretzels.. then I decided on these Graham Breakaways...

Take Out with Breakaways (with dried Cranberries)

The Graham Breakaways are from Lick the Bowl Good and can be found here. I added dried Cranberries to the top - she has it listed as a suggestion, and boy was she right!

Now I tell you this - but you must keep it secret.. this bag has about 6 pieces in it - currently is no where to be found in the house... while I was checking email I ate it... every last piece. So I had good intentions.. now I will have to make more and quickly send to receipents.. that stuff is way too dangerous to me! Who doesn't love graham crackers, chocolate, pecans, toffee and cranberries!!!   OK. enough or I am back to baking!


Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great day!
Hug the ones you love!
