I really love Pinterest, it makes me feel crafty just looking through photos! ”Look at all the super east things I could do that look so awesome”
Once in a while, I try things!
I spotted these Jolly Rancher Heart cookies on Pinterest, and just had to try them out for myself. They looked easy and pretty impressive.
So, Princess Baker and I made some shortbread dough, cut out hearts, unwrapped Jolly Ranchers and stuck them in the oven. They literally took about 7 minutes to cook and they actually worked – hurray! BUT…. just because something looks great, doesn’t mean it is great.
While these cookies look incredibly amazing, like a stain glass window, they are way too weird to eat. The combo of cookie and Jolly Rancher just doesn’t work. The Jolly Rancher maintains it’s extremely tough chewy and sticky consistency.
This isn’t the first time something from Pinterest hasn’t exactly worked out. Well… it looks like it’s suppose to (we just added sprinkles), but as for eating, don’t let it’s good looks fool you.
What are your experiences with Pinterest? Have things worked out for you?
