Personalized Melonheads are no longer available

Hi friends,
I'm sad to say that I will no longer be doing the personalized melonheads.
( I will finish the orders for those I have taken:) )
(The use of them on blogs, etc. is a violation of a contract I have
with someone else. This was a misunderstanding on my part, and in no
way will affect how you use your melonhead.)
For those who have purchased them, please don't worry about how you're using them, they are yours
to do with as you please, as was our agreement.
Thank you for your continued love and support!
You're the best!
   Sorry, I should have been more specific...... this is only for the personalized characters, not all graphics:)

Recipes and tips for treats!

Cupcakes: For moister cupcakes, decrease water by 1 /4, and increase the oil by how much water you left out.  For frosting:  one can premade frosting, 1/ 2-3/4 cup powdered sugar, flavored extract to taste, add food coloring. Easy frosting technique: use a baggie! Fill baggie half way and twist shut. Ship off one corner, and pipe frosting in a circular motion.

Rice Crispie pops: 4 tbs. butter, 5 c. mini marshmallows, 6 cups rice crispies. Heat butter and marshmallows in microwave. Mix in rice crispies. Pour into buttered cookie sheet and flatten out. Once set cut into about 2” x 3” pieces. Insert sucker sticks. Dip in melted chocolate and sprinkles.

Chocolate nut balls: 3 giant Hershey’s chocolate candy bars, I small cool whip. Melt chocolate 30 seconds at a time, stirring between, until melted. Stir in cool whip. Let set for 10 minutes or so. Using a cookie scoop (or spoon) drop into nuts, oreo crumbles, etc. and roll. Set in freezer for 30 minutes.

Cream cheese mints: 4 oz. cream cheese, about 3 c. powdered sugar,1/ 4 tsp. mint extract, 1/8 tsp. food coloring. Mix all ingredients together. Take a small chunk, roll in granulated sugar, and press into rubber cookie mold. Pop out onto cookie sheet to dry. You may need to add more powdered sugar. Should be stiff cookie dough consistency.

Nutty Reindeer:  Using nutter butter cookies, dip one flat side into dipping chocolate. Place candy eyes and red hot for nose ontop. Once chocolate has set, dip pretzels, and attach to back of cookie for antlers.

Dipping treats:  place dipping chocolate in bowl in microwave. Heat for 30 seconds stir, 30 seconds, stir, until melted. Dip everything!!!! Use extra chocolate to make shapes to top treats by using a squeeze bottle! Shown above: oreos on a stick rolled in candycane crumbs, and marshmallows on a peppermint stick, dipped in red dipping chocolate. Leftover red dipping chocolate was used to make small hearts to put on the top of the cupcakes.

Happy Veterans Day!

Better late then never right?
Sorry again....

Just a quick note to thank all of those who have served to keep my family safe.
I'm very grateful for the sacrifices made on our behalf, both by those in the military,
and by their familes as well. (As well as those in other countries who fight with them). I'm sending you all of my love, and gratitude.

God Bless You.
Stay safe my friends.
Thank you for being a hero.

Personalized "melonheads" update:)

Hi friends:)
I have been asked about the originals for your melonheads.
If you would like your signed drawings, please email me and let me know.
IF I can find it (so far I've only misplaced one),
I would be happy to mail you the drawing for a minimal fee:)
Most of them are on a half sheet of white paper.
I've heard they're being framed and hung above desks, etc.

If you'd like more info about a melonhead, please click on the personalized melonheads
tab at the top of the blog:)

Thank you so much for taking the time to answer my question!
I really appreciate your input, as your opinions are very important to me.  I have decided to go for it, and open up my
