Vintage Piggy Bank

Vintage Piggy Banks
Piggy banks get their name from an orange-colored clay called pygg, which was used in the Middle Ages to make jars for storing staples such as salt. Sometime in 18th-century England, these jars had morphed into hollow containers with a coin slot, often shaped like a pig to make a visual pun on the name of the clay.

Quote by Miss Piggy
Is there a cure for a broken heart? Only time can heal your broken heart, just as time can heal his broken arms and legs.

In medieval times, in England, pots and dishes were created with clay, that type of clay was called “pygg”. Much like now, pots were often used to keep some spare cash in the kitchen or in other areas in the house.

Every night empty your pockets and/or purse and put your change into a container.

Piggy Pops
16 large pink and/or white marshmallows
1 tablespoon sugar
2 packages (10 to 12 ounces each) white baking chips
2 tablespoons shortening
3 to 4 drops red food coloring, optional
32 double-stuffed Oreo cookies
32 Popsicle sticks or craft sticks
64 miniature semisweet chocolate chips (about 1 tablespoon)
64 M&M's miniature baking bits (about 2 tablespoons)
Cut marshmallows into thirds horizontally; cut the center portion of each into four wedges for ears. Roll cut sides of ears in sugar to prevent sticking together. Set ears and remaining portions aside.
In a microwave, melt baking chips and shortening; stir until smooth. Stir in food coloring if desired.
Twist apart sandwich cookies. Dip the end of a Popsicle stick into melted baking chip mixture and place on a cookie half; replace cookie top. Repeat. Place pops on waxed paper-lined baking sheets; refrigerate for 10 minutes or until set.
Reheat baking chip mixture if necessary; dip a pop in mixture and allow excess to drip off. Return to waxed paper-lined baking sheet. While wet, position a marshmallow slice on the cookie for a snout. Add ears on top edge of cookie; hold for a few seconds or until set. Add chocolate chip eyes. Place two baking bits on snout, securing with a dab of baking chip mixture. Repeat. Let stand until set. Yield: 32 pops.
