And what did YOU do with your day off due to the blizzard of 2011?
I spend countless hours making crayon muffins.
Step One: Peel the paper off hundreds of crayon bits. After getting tons of crayon bits under my fingernails, it finally dawned on me to use a razor blade to slice down the crayon and peel the label off. Ahhh, much better! *Disclaimer: do not let children use the razor blade! The crayons I had were very old (up to 10 years!) and the labels wouldn't come off easily. Hopefully, your stash is much newer and easier to peel.
Step Two: get an awesome baking pan. I also have a heart shaped one. Both are by Wilton and cost under $10.
Step Three: Pile the crayon bits into the pan, making sure they are slightly mounded. They will melt down and fill the gaps between the crayons.
Step Four: Bake at 250 degrees for 15 minutes. Allow to cool completely and they will pop right out. Have fun- try different color combinations!
