Mickey Mouse Oreo Pops

Hello everyone. I would like to share how I did the oreo pops I made for my daughter's 2nd bday.

Here's what you'll need:

  • Double stuf oreo (do not use the regular oreos)
  • Popsicle/lollipop sticks
  • Chocolate candy melts
  • Mini oreos (for the ears)
Here's what you'll need to do:
  • Heat the candy melts in the microwave (you would want to add a tsp or two of vegetable oil).
  • Dip the popsicle stick into the melted candy melts.
  • Open the Double Stuf Oreos and insert the stick (just like what you see in the picture).

  • Next, seperate the mini oreos and remove the filling.
  • Dip half of the mini oreos in the melted chocolate and place them on each side of the double stuf oreo to make the ears.
  • Line them together and freeze for about 10-20min.

  • Remove from the freezer and coat them with the left over melted chocolate.
  • Then decorate. I didn't have much time to decorate the oreos so it ended up being a silhouette Mickey Mouse Oreo Pops.

  • My husband made the stand with an old but sturdy box and wrapped it with white paper and stuffed the inside with more paper to give weight on it. He put a slit as wide as the end of the popsickle stick.
  • Minnie Mouse wand/decor - I'll blog about it later.

My number 1 customer!!! :)

God bless and have a wonderful day ahead of you :)

1 Chronicles 4:10 - The prayer of Jabez

Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, “Oh, that you would bless me and enlarge my territory! Let your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain.” And God granted his request.

Ultimate Nachos

My husband and I love nachos except when we're outside and they give you just a squeeze or two of cheese. So why not make our own nachos at home with unlimited cheese, right?

Unfortunately, I did not use any measurements when I made this.

What I used:
  • For the beef:
    • Ground beef
    • Salt and pepper
    • Paprika
    • Onion
    • Garlic powder
    • 2 cups boiling water
  • For the cheese:
    • 3 tbsp butter
    • 3 tbsp flour
    • 2 cups cold milk or evaporated milk
    • 1 tsp salt
    • 3 - 4 oz of sharp cheddar cheese (I always use Velveeta)
  • Nachos
  • Parsley (for garnish)
  • Tomatoes
  • Iceberg lettuce
  • Sour cream
How I did it:

  • For the beef:

    • Boil 2 cups water then add the ground beef, salt, pepper and onion.
    • Wait until water evaporates and the beef's oil comes out naturally (make sure not to burn it). I boil the beef to make sure it is fully cooked plus it wont be oily because you didn't use oil (learned this from my mother).
    • Add the remaining ingredients and set aside.

  • For the cheese:

    • In a medium sauce pan, heat the butter on medium heat then add the flour and whisk together until it turns yellow.
    • Add the cold milk or evaporated milk and stir constantly. Bring to a boil.
    • Make sure you keeps stirring so it wont burn.
    • Add the salt and wait for proper texture to arise.
    • Add the cheese now and stir until it melts. Set aside.

  • Now put them all together in a serving platter:

  • That's it. I hope you'll enjoy making and eating this as much as we did! :)

    Thank you for reading and God bless :)

    Pink and White Minnie Mouse Themed Party

    My daughter celebrated her 2nd birthday last May 5, 2012 with a Pink and White Minnie Mouse theme. At first, I wanted a Princess theme but then I thought that it wasn't age appropriate yet. So I went with Minnie Mouse.

    I planned and made almost everything myself since it was held at our house and I could put all the decorations that I possibly can.

    We had different kinds of desserts, food, bounce house and entertainment - Minnie Mouse and a Gentle Clown celebrated with us.

    *Homemade means *I made :)

    Homemade Mickey/Minnie Party hats:


    Do any designs you could think of to a plain party hat.
    Make the ears.

    And voila! You have your personalized Minnie/Mickey Party hats.
    Table Centerpieces and Utensils

    Fill the vases with sorted candies and chocolates.

    Materials that I used.

    Desserts: we had Oreo Pops, Caramel Popcorn, Fruits, Leche Flan, Brownies, Chocolate Fondue, Cotton Candy, Cupcakes from Jess (a cousin) and Cake from I Heart Cakery.

    Tinkerbell Themed Party

    Last May 5, 2011 my daughter Dasha Aniela celebrated her 1st birthday with a theme of Tinkerbell. Since we celebrated it at Jollibee in Tully Rd., San Jose, CA, I did not have that much of a chance to decorate the banquet area because they have their own theme. But then I still incorporated a little bit of Tinkerbell in the place.

    Let's start off with the homemade Tinkerbell candy bouquet that I made.

    Here's how I made it:

    The invitation:


     The cake was from Red Ribbon Bake Shop and I just love their Coffee Crunch cake so that was the filling of the cake:

    Pinyata and some balloons was also Tinkerbell:

    That's it. And thank you for reading :)
