We are sad to announce that our Tecumseh location closed its doors on January 1. We're sad to say goodbye and we'll miss all our friends in Tecumseh, but we are so thankful for the three and a half years of memories and our wonderfully loyal and supportive customers. You can still find us in Ann Arbor and online at rockpaperscissorsshop.com! Thanks for everything, and here's to big things and happy resolutions in 2015!
We at Rock Paper Scissors LOVE Madewell - the style, the accessories, and of course, their perfect pairs of jeans! We're pumped to be teaming up with Ann Arbor's Madewell location in Arbor Hills (3070 Washtenaw Ave.) this Friday, December 19 for an afternoon of snacks, shopping, and free gift wrapping from team RPS on any purchases over $125! We're excited to show off our gift wrapping talents (not to be confused with our rapping talents, which are also abundant) and we'll have extra wrapping on hand available for purchase as well! We hope to see you this Friday from 4 - 7 pm at Madewell!
Happy Day After Thanksgiving!

North Pole Pops
1 bag of marshmallows (about 30-35 marshmallows in a bag)
1 16 oz. package of semi-sweet chocolate chips
6-8 peppermint sticks, crushed into small pieces
35 small, thin candy canes
1. Place a marshmallow on each of the candy canes. Place crushed candy cane pieces in small bowl.
2. Place chocolate in medium heat-proof glass bowl and place bowl over pot of simmering water. Make sure bowl fits snugly on pot and that bottom of bowl does not touch water inside – just rests on lip of pot. Stir chocolate constantly with rubber spatula until melted, shiny and smooth. Do NOT allow any water to get into chocolate – chocolate will seize immediately!
3. Use a spoon to pour chocolate evenly over each marshmallow. Do not dip marshmallow into chocolate. This could cause your melted chocolate in bowl to harden. Using back of spoon, spin marshmallow piece while smoothing chocolate. Make sure to cover the top of the marshmallow but leave the end where the stick enters uncovered.
4. Before chocolate hardens, dip just the tops of the covered marshmallow pieces into your bowl of crushed peppermint candies. Then place on parchment paper to set. Enjoy as is, or use as your hot chocolate stirrer.** 20% off of all Coton Colors excludes Christmas ornaments.
