Pepero and Veterans Day

November 11th Veterans day in the U.S and Pepero Day in Korea.  Pepero are crunchy cookie sticks that are coated with chocolate.  In Korea on 11/11 you give your friends pepero because the long thin sticks look like the number 1.  While teaching in Korea I would get boxes and boxes of these tasty treats.  I wanted to celebrate the holiday state side with my Korean friends so I decided to make my very own pepero.

They still need some work but I really enjoyed how they turned out. Be sure to add a comment if you want the recipe!

pepero for friends!
November 11th is also veterans day and I wanted to do something to honor the men and women who have given their all to keep this country safe.

I made a U.S themed pepero to honor our veterans and remember that while in Korea it is fun to get a sweet treat on Nov. 11th it is even better to remember our veterans and all they have done for us.   

Did you thank a veteran on Veterans day?  Be sure to go out an spread your appreciation.  A simple thank you or a kind gesture will go far.  I would like to say a big Thank You to all the veterans out there for everything you have done to support our country!
