Holly Madeleines & Crazy Sweet Tuesday

Welcome to Crazy Sweet Tuesday…where sugar can make you smile. At least…that’s what it does for me.

I have so many things I want to share this week that I’m hijacking my own party and sharing a recipe amongst the features and linky. Hope you don’t mind? You don’t? ‘Kay great!

This is the perfect treat if you need something totally last minute for Christmas.

Say…your husband came home and said his boss is coming for dinner and you need a last-minute dessert.

Or…your kid comes home and tells you his class party is the next day and you’re signed up to bring snack.

Or…you really like madeleines and stuff on sticks.

Whatever, these are probably the easiest treat for any holiday I’ve ever made. You need three ingredients: madeleines, green candy melts, and red candies.

You wouldn’t even have to use madeleines…just something oblong. Like a cookie. Or a cake pop. {Hey, the way I make cake pops…they’re never round!}

I used Donsuemor madeleines. This isn’t even a sponsored post…I just really love their product! They sell them at Costco here where I am in California. They’re amazing and, dare I say, I can eat an entire box myself.

So why not add more sugar by dipping them?

It makes perfect sense to me!

Seriously, the cutest and easiest treat EVER. Pin this one to your “Last Minute Treats” board. It’ll come in handy, you know it!

Holly Madeleines

Holly Madeleines

Ingredients

  • Madeleines (any flavor)
  • Green Candy Melts
  • Small Red Candies (like mini M&Ms)
  • Lollipop sticks

Instructions

  1. Melt candy according to package direction. It's easiest to dip if you place the melted candy in a tall, thin glass instead of a low, wide bowl.
  2. Dip the end of the stick in the candy and stick into the bottom of the madeleine. Dip the entire thing in the green candy and place three red candies in the bottom corner, like berries. Stick in a styrafoam block to dry.
