hawaiian hula girl fudge sticks

did or are you on summer vacation yet?
we always do road trips for the summer so it's kinda hard to get to places from here to there 
if they involve an ocean in between. 
i know it's much easier to fly but hubby 
does not like to fly.

anyway, hawaii is one place that i am sure is gorgeous in the summer, even though the beach is literally 25 minutes from our house, i think walking on a hawaiian volcanic black sand beach would be pretty dang cool.

so since it does not seem that hawaii is in our future plans, i am bringing it here at home.
check it out.
if you take the 2 pics on the left and put them together, that's what the package looks like. it was kinda hard to get the whole thing in focus and up close cuz the package is a little long.

their colors caught my eye (there were pink ones too in the cake decorating section) but i dunno about their purpose.

if they really are for centerpieces, they look a little droopy.
so i flipped them upside down and got an idea.

not sure if you ever saw these silly "fishes" that i made a few weeks ago but i had some leftover fudge from this recipe and made this treat, but any vanilla fudge will do.

heck even cake pops will work but i was too
lazy to make cake pops.

anway, let's begin.
do you see what i'm making yet?
and most importantly, grab some mini peanut butter cups too.
and i mean mini mini mini cups like i got at trader joe's. 

if you get regular mini reese's cups then your treats will look like dolly parton.

and dolly does not equal hawaii.
use a black food marker to draw the bikini top strings. 
my kids said they needed strings cuz they looked like bOObs without them.
darn kids. they're watching too much mtv. 
(lol! just kidding!)


aw man, bOOb talk again?
but we know those aren't real coconuts right?

so hey you got something to say about that hula girl?
nothing?
anything?
ok i'll take that.
and i think dolly would agree with that too.

  1. My summer vacation doesn't include the beaches of Hawaii, but someday I'd sure like it to. These summer treats are so much fun.

  4. HOW CUTE CAN YOU GET???!!!! These are adorable! I think your Michael's stocks things just because they know YOU shop there! I have not seen tropical picks or candy lips (yet!). Everything just goes together perfectly - you must have the time of your life when you spot a finishing touch item, like the mini peanut butter cups! I think I'd choose following you around in the store over going to Hawaii! No TSA pat down, delayed flight, excess luggage fee - just lots and lots and lots of FUN!!!!

  9. Kudos to your creativity, and you are killing me with the comments about getting the correct cup size. My kiddo is allergic to peanut butter, so I'm thinking I need to find an alternative top. Hummm...

    1. hey how about some Junior Mints? i think they have mini size? but if you can't find it you could always make your girls bigger to suit the cup sizes! LOL happy you stopped by Afton! :)
