White,Milk,and Peanut Butter Chocolate S'mores

I'm Spending the weekend at my grandma's and got the urge to blog.. This is not your average s'more.
You'll need: Graham Cracker's,Marshmallows,and any kind of chocolate u like!

Then you need a fire...

Unwrap the chocolate's and such..

We couldn't find any sticks so we used wire hangers..

TIP::The Marshmallow's catch on fire really quick;)

My Sister just likes her s'more plain and topless..

Mmmm.. Finger lickin' good:)

The Peanut Butter S'more...Grandma's Favorite.

The White Chocoalte s'more was my personal favorite.. Grace thought so too!

No S'more for Grace..

We ate them all up, they were DELICIOUS!! ENJOY:)

Turtle Corn.

Turtle Corn- Popcorn with drizzled caramel and milk chocolate...YUMM!
Start out by popping the corn...

After that Start making your caramel..
In a saucepan combine the following..

1/2 a stick of butter
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup cream/milk either one will do.
1/2 cup sugar

Bring to a simmer and stir until 249 degrees on the candy thermometer

Get your popcorn spread out...
When it was spread out it kinda looked like the United States..So heck, why not make it look like it?


Second attempt looked better...

Then you start drizzleing the carmel..

Let it sit until it's cooled..

Next you melt the chocolate chips...

Then begin to drizzle the chocolate on..
Let it all cool down,then break it int pieces.
For Best results refridgerate..
Then, last but certainly not least you eat it UP!! :)

Cinnamon Crumb Coffee Cake + Homemade Coffee Creamer



•1/2 cup brown sugar

•1/4 cup sifted all-purpose flour (sift before measuring)

•1/4 cup butter, room temperature

•1 teaspoon cinnamon



•1 1/2 cups sifted all-purpose flour (sift before measuring)

•2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

•1/2 teaspoon salt

•1 egg, beaten

•3/4 cup sugar

•1/3 cup melted butter

•1/2 cup milk

•1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Heat the oven to 375.

Stir the ingredients..

crumble on topping..


ok, so this coffe cake is absolutely AMAZING!!

You can't have coffee cake w/out coffee!!

Here's the recipe for homemade coffee creamer. Any of the following would go great with the coffee cake..

1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk and 1-1/2 cups skim milk

to add flavorings chose from the following:

Chocolate Almond: 1 tablespoon cocoa powder, 1 teaspoon almond extract

Vanilla: 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Cappuccino: 1 teaspoon almond extract, 1/2 teaspoon orange extract

Strudel: 1 tablespoon cinnamon, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1 teaspoon almond extract.

Chocolate Raspberry: 2 teaspoons cocoa powder, 2 tablespoons raspberry syrup

My thoughts:

This recipe was very easy to make, I melted the butter for the topping , and I wouldn't reccomend it, it makes it too greasy. I had to add more flour. Also, I didn't sift the flour as the recipe calls for and it turned out fine. Afterward, I thought it would be a good idea to make extra topping and put some of it inside the cake..Hope ya'll enjoy!

My Favorite Thing To DO: White Chocolate Strawberries.

Making White Chocolate is very easy to do.. They are very tasty to all ages..

CLEAN the strawberries first, (ewww..) make sure there COMPLETELY dry before u dip them in the white chocolate or it will turn pink..

 Melt your chips or bark...

then dip, cool and eat them up!! Yumm-o.

WHITE Chocolate Drizzled Brownie Popsicles

Ok,so i'm finishing my sophomore year, home-schooled and it bites. So I have a lot of free time and I figured heck, lets start a blog.. I like to bake,so here we go!

First you'll need the following ingredients.. 1 box of brownie mix,white chocolate chips or you can use bark, sprinkles and popsicle stix..

first.. make your brownies according to the directions..

let the brownies cool all the way or the chocolate wont harden as good, dont dip the brownies in the chocolate or your chocolate will turn brown. spoon or drizzle it on.

I started out covering the brownie, but then I thought it would be better to drizzle.

After we got the brownies out of the pan, we put the stix in, drizzled the chocolate, and added sprinkles, then put them in the fridge until the chocolate was harded.

The kids ate the brownie popsickle's up.....

It defenitely takes longer to make them rather than eating them...

ENJOY!! :)
