Cookies and Crayons Baked in The Car (the end results)

by SomeGirl on August 5, 2011 · 4 comments

Thought you might like to see how the cookies and crayons baked in a HOT Texas car turned out…

The crayons took no time at all to melt… I pulled them out of the car with a hot pad (very carefully, holding my breath, hoping not to spill hot, colorful wax all over my interior) and let them sit on the kitchen counter awhile to harden. They turned out well, but I’d like to see if higher quality crayons would have less clear wax accumulation after melting.

The cookies took quite a bit longer to bake… we left them in for a few hours. When we pulled them out the car temperature registered 131 (at 6pm). They baked pretty well, but were still a little gooey…

We didn’t eat them because I was a worried about food poisoning since they had been in a warm car all afternoon and were still a little gooey, which seems weird since I was okay with us eating raw cookie dough… go figure! ;)

Anyway, it was a lot of fun. If you have the fortune of being in HOT weather, where you feel like your skin might melt as you walk the LONG, HOT parking lot to enter the cool, refreshing doorway of Target  (a peek into my thoughts from yesterday), I’d suggest you make the most of it and try these out! :)

Btw, I got the idea and directions on how to melt crayons in your car from a good friend on twitter. :)

I agree with Jamie. Love those crayon molds. I just had to favorite the tweet that you got the idea from. TFS, Michelle. I’ve got a question or two for you. Might just have to dm or email you…
