Candy Cane Popcorn & a Giveaway


One of our favorite family traditions each year around Christmas time is to sit down together and watch one of our favorite Christmas Movies.  Because Christmas time is special, its fun to add a little extra pizzazz to our popcorn.  This year I decided to make some White Chocolate Candy Cane Popcorn and throw in these fun, festive-colored Sixlets from SweetWorks.

candy-cane-popcorn

I just love Sixlets…don’t you?  Sixlets always remind me of growing up.  My 4 siblings and I used to walk (almost 2 miles one way) down to the Old Fashioned Drug Store on the occasional Saturday and buy candy (for a penny or 5 cents—Did I just date myself?).  My sisters and I would always buy a little sleeve of Sixlets.

I was recently contacted by Sweet Works about doing a giveaway and was excited to see one of my favorite childhood candies in all sorts of fun colors.  And you know how much little things like this make me happy!  And, colorful chocolate candy additions make this Candy Cane Peppermint Popcorn that much more perfect!

Want the recipe for your family?

Candy Cane Popcorn

12 oz. of white chocolate, melted (I prefer the chocolate blocks but chocolate chips or white candy melts will work too)

1/4 cup of un-popped popcorn (measure it un-popped and then pop it)

1/2 cup of crushed candy canes

2-3 drops peppermint oil

1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional)

dash of salt (optional)

Red and White Sixlets (or candy of your choice)

candy-coated-popcorn

Directions:

1. Pop your popcorn and make sure to remove all the un-popped popcorn kernels.  Place in a large mixing bowl with ample room to mix. 

2. Melt white chocolate in a double boiler or in the microwave.  White chocolate melts better and more smoothly for me when I do it in a double boiler.  (Or in a pan over a pan of water on the stove…you can google it if needed).

3. Add crushed candy canes and peppermint oil to melted white chocolate and stir quickly.  Pour over popcorn and mix it so that all the popcorn is covered.  It is helpful to have another set of hands for this part if possible. 

4. Spread out in a jelly roll pan and then while still sticky,  the candy over the top of the popcorn.  Add a dash of salt over the popcorn.

5. Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave and drizzle over the popcorn.  Set aside and let the chocolate harden.

6. Break up into bite size pieces and serve up in a bowl or a gift bag.

Gold, Frankincense & Myrrh Gift Set

*Update 12.6.13–Here is the link to the Recipes, Tutorials and Free Printables : Gifts of Christmas

Too many sugar scrub recipes lately?  I couldn’t resist making a sugar scrub AND some bath salts this Christmas season using my Frankincense and Myrrh DoTerra Essential Oils.  I actually wanted to make them last Christmas…but was right in the middle of figuring out my food allergy issues…so it just didn’t happen.

Christmas-gift

I can’t believe another year has come and gone!!  Doesn’t it seem like time is speeding up as we get older?  Anyways…I am excited to share these new recipes with you!  I am so happy with how this whole gift idea just came together!

gift-of-the-wisemen

And…they BOTH smell so good!  They have a great spicy, warm…Christmas-y scent!  I did a little research on each of the oils traditional and ancient uses and tried to come up with the best use for each.  So…I went with a Frankincense Sugar Scrub due to the amazing skin benefits Frankincense provides.  It is actually a common ingredient in some skin care products.

bath-salts

And for the Myrrh, I decided to make some Myrrh Bath Salts.  Myrrh was anciently used in the embalming process and has purifying, restorative, revitalizing, and uplifting qualities. So I thought it would be perfect to be used in a nice, warm, relaxing bath environment.

christmas-printables

I also wanted to include the third gift that the Wisemen brought to the baby Jesus and decided to add some Gold Chocolate Coins in a little linen pouch.

Christmas

And of course I needed to have the perfect size of wooden crate for them to all fit in.  I made this crate out of leftover wood scraps and then stained it.  I will for sure share the tutorial for this for those of you who may be interested.

Doterra-frankincense

Now…I realize that MOST of you are not going to have essential oils Frankincense and Myrrh laying around the house.  If you do…GREAT!!  You can make some of these today…or at least when I share the recipe!

Myrrh-doterra

So, I thought it would be fun to give a set of Individual Frankincense and Myrrh DoTerra Essential Oils (not this gift basket) to one of you!  I have teamed up with my DoTerra girl…Julie Crowell with Drops of Life, who is so knowledgeable about these amazing oils.

She is happy to answer any questions you may have about these oils and can sell you any that you might be interested in. You can email Julie at [email protected] or message her on her FB page which you can access by clicking on the link above with her name.  I can not tell you how much I have loved having these oils for my family and I.

I will be sharing the tutorials and recipes for these oils tomorrow!  Today I want to give some away!  If you would like to be entered for a chance to win a bottle of Frankincense and Myrrh DoTerra Essential Oils, simply follow the directions in the Rafflecopter Box below.

Dremel Saw-Max Giveaway

I have a fun giveaway for those of you who may be interested in making your own DIY projects…a Dremel Saw-Max.

DIY-Tufted-headboard

If you remember a couple of months ago, I made this Tufted Headboard for my daughter’s room and used the Dremel Saw-Max to cut out the inside of the headboard.

dremel-saw-max

The Dremel Saw-Max reinvents cutting as you know it. Powerful enough to cut through virtually any material and simple enough to be able to control with one hand. Its compact size and ergonomic design makes it easy to handle, easy to follow the cut line, and easy to store. The Dremel Saw-Max gives users the ability to cut easily and efficiently for a job done right.

We have also recently used the saw to cut off the bottom of some baseboards while helping my mom do some remodeling and installing new tile in her bathroom.

I love that the Saw-Max is so versatile.  I used the Saw-Max to also cut the boards for this North Pole Crate I shared with you recently.  It was so nice to be able to just pull out this little saw instead of the larger saw we normally use.

christmas-crate

I also have a couple of other projects, one for my son’s room to hang his baseball caps and put up some of his memorabilia on that I plan to use the Dremel Saw-Max for.  I will for sure share it with you when I get it finished!

Want to a chance to win a Dremel Saw-Max  (a $99 value) for yourself? Follow the instructions in the Rafflecopter Box below.

The Chic Orchid Giveaway

*This is a sponsored post for The Chic Orchid.

Today I have another fun giveaway for you just in time for Christmas.  But really, if you love cute clothes at great deals…you are going to want to make sure you are following The Chic Orchid.

The Chic Orchid is a daily deal site that sells mostly clothing and sometimes other fun accessories.  I personally have bought several different items for myself from The Chic Orchid.  So I was really excited when Tam asked if I wanted to offer my readers a giveaway.

*Sorry for the low quality pictures and selfies ;)

I hope you guys know that I am SUPER selective about the companies and items I share with you here on The Idea Room.  I take it very seriously and make sure that I only share items or companies that I personally shop with.  The Chic Orchid is for sure one of my favorite places to shop.

With that said, I just wanted to share with you just a few (hope the hubby isn’t reading this ;)) of the items I have purchased.

The Chic Orchid deals are posted at 7:00 am MST and once they are sold out, they are gone.  So you want to make sure that you don’t miss out on a great deal (speaking from experience here) and sign up to get daily emails or follow along with The Chic Orchid on their various social media sites.

Arm and Hammer Review and Giveway

*This is a sponsored post on behalf of Arm and Hammer.  I was given product to review and compensation.  However, all opinions and statements are my own.

As you know, I have been working with Arm and Hammer and giving an honest review of some of their products.  This time we were asked to review the Arm and Hammer Tooth Tunes and Sensitive toothpaste, from the makers of Orajel™.

tooth-tunes.png

I have a 9 year old daughter who is obsessed with music and can be found breaking out her dance moves at anytime or any place.  If my ipod is missing I know right where to find it…in her room.

So, the Tooth Tunes toothbrush is perfect for her.  I love that she loves to brush her teeth now…even if it does involve a little bit of dancing too.

tune-tunes-1photo.png

We have also been reviewing the Sensitive toothpaste from the makers of Orajel™.  My two older girls have been complaining of having sensitive teeth.  The new toothpaste does seem to be helping with that a bit.  My girls even liked the minty taste.  I like that the toothpaste is not as “sugary” as the other toothpastes out there.  In fact, since my review of the Arm and Hammer toothpaste last year, my husband and I have permanently made the switch to Arm and Hammer Toothpaste.

Arm and Hammer Tooth Tunes, it is the only toothbrush with Music In Your Mouth technology.  Tooth Tunes toothbrushes play for 2 minutes (dentist’s recommending brushing time) so that the child knows to keep brushing until the music stops.

Other Tooth Tunes feature artists include:

  • “All Day” performed by Cody Simpson
  • “Dynamite” performed by Taio Cruz
  • “I Gotta Feeling” performed by Black Eyed Peas
  • “If I Ruled the World” performed by Big Time Rush
  • “Round & Round” performed by Selena Gomez & The Scene
  • “Tonight, Tonight” performed by Hot Chelle Rae
  • “We Will Rock You” performed by Queen

Since I have enjoyed their products, Arm and Hammer and I would like to give one Idea Room reader One ARM & HAMMER Seasonal Savings Gift Pack plus a $100 Visa Gift Card.  Now…who couldn’t use one of those?
