Mint Pretzel Bites | simplykierste.com

One of my favorite treats to make around the holidays is Rolo Pretzel Bites. They are just about the easiest things EVER to make--seriously 4 minutes, people!!!  I love to experiment with the same basic recipe, and I've tried quite a few different variations.  I first made them using Mint M&M's during the Christmas holiday, and I fell in {love} with them.  I knew then that they would be perfect for St. Patrick's Day!  Mint Pretzel Bites are my new favorite treat. :) The combination of sweet and salty is irresistible, and the chewy caramel with the crunch of the mint M&Ms is perfection.  You might want to make these when you're going to give some away, otherwise you will want to … [Read more...]

Skittles are perfect for St. Patrick's Day...all those rainbow colors!  I paired them with one of my personal favorites, gold-wrapped Rolos for a super fun gift...for friends, neighbors, teachers, and more!  I also created a fun tag, and free printable, just for you!!! I save all of my Crystal Light containers, which I LOVE to re-use for all sorts of gifting and organizational purposes.  I love the lids, how easy the wrappers are to take off, their size & shape, and that they are see-through!  If you don't have any, or want something smaller, try a jelly jar, other small mason jar, or a baby food jar/container. I layered the candy starting with the Skittles first--in rainbow … [Read more...]

shamrock glitter block decor

With the current Silhouette promo going on right now, I was sent some double-sided adhesive to try. I haven't worked a lot with glitter, and I'd never used the double-side adhesive, so I was excited to use it. With St. Patrick's Day right around the corner, and Valentine's Day decor coming down soon, I decided something with a shamrock would be fun.  :) I've seen quite a few projects using the adhesive with paper, and other decor, such as candles, but since I love working with wood so much, I was curious to see how it would work.  I LOVE the end result! It was really easy to do, and FAST!  (which I always love...) {supplies} -2x8 wood block (mine was 12 inches wide) -spray … [Read more...]

kiss me one copy

I wanted to do something fun for a few ladies that I visit each month, and when I saw the green Hershey kisses at the store, I knew I had found just the thing. I love having clear treat bags on hand. They are really inexpensive (you can get a pack of 20 for under $2 at Walmart), and are quite versatile. However, sometimes (like today) I find myself without any, so I always go to my backup--sandwich bags. Just cut the zipper part of the top, and you're set! Then I filled them with green Hershey kisses, and attached this cute tag: If you'd like to use it too, just right click on the image below, and save image as. Then open a blank Word file (or similar), and insert it as a … [Read more...]
