Recently I received a box of fun. I mean really, a box including a fun craft to make AND delicious chocolately treats? What’s not to love.
Here is the crafty part of the package:
Two cute canisters from Crate&Barrel can be found here and the Martha Stewart paints, sponges, and stencils can be found here. I’m gonna be brutally honest for a minute here – I thought stencils were a thing of the past, I hadn’t used one in forever and was just imagining trying to tape the stencil into place on a curved surface that wouldn’t result in gaps around the letters that would cause bleeding. WELL I am very happy to report I couldn’t have been more wrong. These stencils are in a way self adhesive – they aren’t permanent but they stay in place wonderfully and there was very little if any bleeding under the letters – it only happened on 1 letter for me and a slightly damp q-tip cleaned it right up.
I used the letter stencils to put snacks and treats onto the canisters (putting *treats* on the smaller one in hopes that the snacks would be healthy and more plentiful). The project was so easy and I love how they turned out. Even Nate likes how nice and clean they are and they’re so easy to wipe down.
NOW for the yummy chocolate treats! Weight Watchers included a box of their new Triple Chocolate Brownie Bliss treats. Being only 80 calories I wouldn’t even feel guilty putting these in the snack canister. They really are delicious, I even went to the store to buy more and found some Peanutbutter Brownie Bliss ones that are equally delicious! You can find a list of the Weight Watcher treats here. I purchased mine at my local Wal-Mart (after searching quite a few stores for them) they were a bit hidden because they were hanging out by the Hostess and Little Debbie treats but I found them and I am happy I did.
Here are my cute canisters filled with my yummy (and almost guilt free) treats.
I highly recommend all of the products featured in this post today. The product and supplies were supplied to me to review but the thoughts are all my own. Every one of these items I would go out and buy in a heartbeat – in fact I have bought more of the Brownie Bliss AND have the next bigger sized canister in my shopping cart right now because they are just so cute and functional!
OH YEAH – you can get a coupon to try a Weight Watchers treat here!
