Thankful Treats!

Here at More Than Paper, we have so much for which to be thankful!  One of our annual traditions to begin celebrating Thanksgiving week is to make Chocolate Marshmallow Pilgrim Hats!  Someone shared this recipe with us years ago, and we have been enjoying making them for more than 18 years!  These are so adorable and are enjoyed by young and old alike!

Marshmallow Pilgrim Hats

24 Chocolate-striped shortbread cookies (such as Keebler Fudge Shoppe cookies)
12-oz. package of chocolate chips (milk chocolate or semi-sweet)
24 large marshmallows
1 tube of yellow decorators frosting with small piping tip

How to prepare:
1. Set the chocolate-striped cookies stripes down on a wax-paper-covered tray.
2. Melt the chocolate chips in a microwave or double boiler (if microwaving, use approx. 20 sec intervals and be sure to mix the chips in between each heating).
3. One at a time, stick a wooden toothpick into a marshmallow, dip the marshmallow into the melted chocolate, and promptly center it atop a cookie (I scraped the bottom of the marshmallow a bit with the back edge of a knife to remove excess).
4. Using a second toothpick to lightly hold down the marshmallow, carefully pull out the first toothpick.

5. Chill the hats until the chocolate sets, then pipe a yellow decorators' frosting buckle on the front of each hat.

6.  Keep refrigerated until ready to eat!

Need some great personalized napkins or platters to use for serving these wonderful treats?  Here are some ideas:

New Year's Eve Style!

New Year's Eve celebrations take on many different forms. For some, the celebration is a big, glitzy night out. For others, it's a quiet night on the sofa watching Ryan Seacrest and the ball drop.  Or maybe it's a celebration somewhere in between. In whatever way you choose to celebrate New Year's Eve, be sure you do it in style! More Than Paper brings you style ideas from around the web for New Year's Eve 2014.

Hostess Gifts

This time of year, we are busy running around from party to party. We're celebrating the season with co-workers, friends, families, and neighbors. There sure are a lot of parties to attend! It's crucial that you bring a hostess gift when attending, especially when the party is catered or completely hosted (meaning you weren't asked to BYOB or a potlucks dish. You should not show up empty handed.)  At More Than Paper, we think a personalized gift is a really great way to thank your host and, of course, we have plenty of those! 

Though we have shown seasonal favorites, these ideas below work all year long.  Choose from ornaments, recipe boxes, candles, desktop calendars, personalized notepads and coasters as some of our favorite hostess gifts!
