  3. When the noodles and filling are ready to go, preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Prepare a glass casserole dish by spraying with non-stick spray.
  4. Lay out a few noodles at a time. Place a few tablespoons of filling on each noodle and spread to cover from edge to edge. The filling does not need to be thick because once the noodle is rolled up, it will be compounded. Make sure to spread it all the way to the edges of the noodles.image (7)

Lately, I hear my friends say how there have been so many birthdays coming up, friends having babies, someone has a new job etc… So I sat down and thought about gift ideas I have done. I thought of how a candy bouquet is a great gift idea for congratulate or a gift to give to celebrate someone. You can personalize it to your loved ones favorite treats and to what they like. When they receive their candy bouquet that was created in love, it will definitely make their day. It is a great way to add a smile to someone’s day!P.S.- Oh and did I forget to mention it is easy on the wallet!
