When our daughter turned 1 this fall, I decided she “needed” an all-pink celebration, seeing as she specifically told me “pink’s my favorite color, Mom!” and all. Then, like an insane full-time working mom-of-2 that I am, I decided I should make most of the all-pink menu myself.
I found endless inspiration on Pinterest and among my final selections were these gorgeous pink yogurt-covered pretzels: http://pinterest.com/pin/50032245831556040/
I should’ve known better when I read some of the responses to the original blog posting…
I used thick Greek yogurt and possibly a literal ton of confectioners sugar, with a few drops of all-natural red food coloring, patiently dipped and double-dipped the pretzels, to no avail- the mixture would not stick. In desperation (and running out of time) I sprinkled on some pink decorating sugar and chucked the batch in the oven to set up the required time. I was rewarded with a barely-there sheen, a hint of pink that would have been awesome in a lipgloss – not so awesome on my pretzels.
Luckily the much trickier-sounding pink popcorn recipe went off perfectly!
