There is Something in the Water...

Or at least there was between 12 and 9 months ago! Because everyone I know is having a baby! So in honor of those cute little Nuggets I am sharing a very simple DIY Baby Shower party favor: Mint Pacifiers.

I flew home to Georgia in September to host a shower for my Dearest friend!
Momma -to- be with Baby Bump at the Brunch
We decided to have a Baby Brunch with Baby Quiche, Baby BLT's (Turkey Bacon, of course!), Baby Bran Muffins, Baby Spinach Salad with Blue Cheese, Berries and Balsamic, and Baby Ducks.

Hostess' with the Momma-to-be: My mom, J and me

Look at that adorable red mohawk!

What you will need: 

1 bag of Candy Melts 
1 bag of Jelly Beans (the larger the will want to have enough to snack!) 
2 bags of Lifesaver Mints (If you can find the rolls of small mints with holes in the center--use those!)
Wax paper
10-20 Small Cellophane gift bags (clear)

1. On a sheet of wax paper place Candy Melts in rows flat side down.

2. Microwave 3-4 Candy Melts for 20 seconds. Continue heating in 10 second intervals until the Candy Melts are soft.

3. Take a jelly bean and dip the tip in the melted Candy Melt (the glue).

4. Press the tip of the Jelly Bean that is covered in "glue" into the center of the Candy Melt on the wax paper.

5. Repeat steps 2-4 until all Jelly Beans are glued to a Candy Melt.

6. Refrigerate for a few hours to allow the "glue" to set.

7. Repeat step 2.

8. Dip one edge of a Lifesaver Mint into the glue.

9. Press glued edge of mint into the center,  bottom side of each Candy Melt with Jelly Bean.

10. Refrigerate over night.

11. Place 1-2 Mint Pacifiers into clear cellophane bag and tie closed with a ribbon.

12. Have the bags of Mint Pacifiers in a bowl or on a table by the door for guest to take on their way out! Any extra can go in a bowl on the buffet table or around the room.
