hi toleshed, their should be a lil box that saids "attachment" and you click that and it should let you. if your using the quick comment box at the bottom of page, click preview and then after it loads the page you can scroll down it will be there, when you click "attachment" then you click "browse" and pick your pic icon_biggrin.gif

Toleshed, I did not put these in the freezer. I just let them cool on the counter.

That doesn't work for me to post an attachment. Where is the lil box you spoke of?

hi toleshed, when you go to the quick comment section at the bottom of the thread you can start your post and then click "preview" it will take you to another page, where you can add your attachment. if you look past the box where you write, their are some lil boxes you can click for disabling things or notify me when a reply posted, right under that you will see "attachment posting control panel" their is a lil box within that area that saids "add an attachment" you click that, then it will reload the page and it will have the box under the first "attachment area you clicked, you will see that it saids "browse" you will click that and then click "add attachment"
its a bit confusing icon_confused.gif cuz their are so many steps and then it repeats attachment a few times, i hope that helps. icon_smile.gif its the only way i know how to do it. if anyone knows another way for it to be easier, i wish they would come along, hehehe! Goodluck!!! oh and sometimes the pic might be too big so then you have another problem, hehe! all that just to post a pic. crazy! hehehe icon_lol.gif

Amifsud.. Im sorry I dont know why your cookies would have turned a white color ?

Amifsud. I want to say that your cookies are just gorgeous!
I also wanted to ask if the cookies you dipped in the left over choc had been just sitting out or you had just used it ,then used it again or what ?
Also what choc do you use ?

Fiddlestix, I used melt n mold, just opened the package. I did the oreos dipped in chocolate first then the molded ones, the molded ones turned out fine, do you think the first ones the chocolate was not hot enough? Am I supposed to let it get to a certain temp? Thanks for the comment on the cookies they were fun to make.

I wouldnt think so,with dipping choc it just has to be warm enough to melt ,not hot. Thats strange though, sorry I just dont have an answer.I hope someone might know for you.
I have never had mine do that.

Oh well thanks for your help anyway, I will figure it out. I might try some of the parafin chips and see if that helps. I am still waiting on my molds for spinning leaf so I am sure I will figure something out.

It just doesent make since that it would work one way and not the other. Let us know if you figure it out. You will love the spinning leaf molds. did you get the reg size or the mini,s?

I got most of them I think I ordered 13 all together but I order 2 of some of the plain ones. I also got the nutter butter mold, cause I love those cookies. I might try using the Chocolate from Trader Joes they have a really good milk chocolate bar that I use for Rocky Road.

We do not have a Sam Club here in CA, I did not order the clown. I am sure Iwill down the line, I get this order in first then see.

I saw the dipping chocolate in Sam's. Just wasn't sure of the taste. I am used to Merkens. Does it taste the same?

The Sams diping choc is delicious ! Its called a double choc . So its a combo of milk and maybe semi ? Not overly sweet but not bitter at all I just know its yummy! The White also is delish !
I suppose it depends on your personal taste but thats all I used this Holiday and it was a Big hit with everyone that had any of my candy! I liked it better then the Merkens I had also bought and my merkins is still sitting here while I used the Sams.

Hey Linda did you find the large pretzel bags ?
angelatx.. Your very welcome you did an awesome job!

post #326 of 347

Fiddlesticks, I found the bags online but I am going to HL to check & see if they have them first. We don't have Michaels. icon_rolleyes.gif Can't believe I have never done pretzels, but I think they are really a pretty "package"! I also got 2 different heart box molds. Maybe I will get to try them out soon! Having terrible trouble with arthritis!
I am sooo thrilled too be getting all these notices again! thumbs_up.gif

Those are soo pretty! You know, I don't know if my mold is deep enough for the "fat" pretzels! hahaha!!! That was what I had in mind tho when I ordered it.

Im sure they will turn out great ! I did these fuller bags for a family gift rather then so many seperate bags. That way I didnt have to use so many bags per family since they all went to the same place anyway. There are also cute decorated bags to but I already had these around so I just went ahead and used them with ribbon for this yr.
