I remember going to Tupperware parties with my mom. It seemed there was a Tupperware party at least once a month back when I was young. Maybe that's how people socialized back then. ;)
When I was somewhere around Jr. High School, maybe 7th grade, we got these Tupperware funnels at one of those parties. The "Tupperware Lady" taught us a trick that night. My big sister, Loma, and I, made these for our closest Jr. High School friends as Valentines gifts back then.
|This one has some tin foil poked into the end of the funnel...you'll see why!|
So many marshmallows...what would I do with them??? There's always Rice Krispies Treats. That will use up some, but I wanted to do something different. That's when my mind wandered waaaay back to about 1983...
We used to take these funnels and use them as molds for fudge:
|I sprayed the inside with non-stick cooking spray first. Once the fudge was in I propped it in a small glass to sit in the fridge and cool.|
( This picture makes me realize how badly I want to change my countertops.
!Aye aye aye! )
Sorry, back to the subject at hand. I drifted...
Once the fudge was cooled completely, I carefully dumped it out of the funnel "mold" and placed it flat side down on a square of tin foil.
Mine came out nice and easy, but if you have any trouble you could dip the funnel in warm water for a second, or wrap a warm towel around the outside to loosen it up a bit.
See how nice it turned out! Don't you just want a bite?
Now it was time to add a personal touch. In Microsoft Word, I typed "Sherry's Kisses" over and over again in a similar shade as the blue that HERSHEY'S KISSES is typed in. I kept this one really simple for sharing purposes, but you could type out an entire love message on your strip of paper ~ if you wanted. Or a "Thank You For Your Friendship" message. Whatever works. Maybe a teacher Valentine. I know I would love a big kiss like this!
All that's left to do is wrap it up and give your kiss to somebody special.
I gave mine to the most adorable, hard-working, chocolate-loving, kiss-aholic I know! I've got more treats in store for him on Valentines Day...but I'm not sharing those with you!
