Late Night Indulgence

YUMMY!!!

 

I had to share!! Today my husband made these delicious red velvet cupcakes with chocolate frosting and little heart sprinkles for me and our son for Valentine’s Day. These are the most moist cupcakes I think I have ever eaten. He made these early this morning and it is now nearly 24 hours later and they are still so moist and yummy. Are you like me sneaking into the kitchen in the middle of the night looking for something to snack on. What leftover Valentine’s day treats are you eating? Well Like I said I just wanted to share because they looked so cute and they just tasted so wonderful. Just if you are wondering this was made with the Betty Crocker red velvet cake mix and chocolate frosting is also Betty Crocker and just added and extra teaspoon of oil.

Well have a good night and remember to check in this week for a major announcement. I am really excited about this and its just the begining of great things to come.

Delighted!

Hi everyone! I am completely delighted to have this opportunity to reach out to so many people and share crafts, as well as working with Stephanie in brainstorming and giving you great projects ideas! Because I am so delighted to be here, I thought it would be fitting to give you one of my favorite delights…

Oreo Torte Delight

1 pkg Oreos crushed (save 1 cup for topping)
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
8 oz cream cheese
1 cup powder sugar
16 oz cool whip
5.9 oz box instant chocolate pudding

Make crust by mixing all but one cup crushed Oreos and 1 stick of melted butter and pressing into a 9×13 pan. Combine softened cream cheese, 8 oz cool whip, powder sugar and blend well. Smooth over crust. Make instant chocolate pudding according to directions on package. Smooth over cream cheese mixture. Take remaining 8 oz cool whip and spread over top of pudding. Garnish with crushed Oreos. Refrigerate several hours or overnight before serving.

YUMMY!! A bit messy and very sinful, next time I’ll have a healthier recipe!

By the way, February is ‘Bake for Family Fun Month’  and even though this recipe isn’t baked, I hope you enjoy this as much as I do!!

Until next craft…

Gingerbread Man Ornament

Gingerbread Man Ornament

Here is another quick and easy ornament idea that the kids will love. My son had a blast gluing on the Cheerios to the gingerbread man while he told me what each little Cheerio signified (Eyes, Mouth, Hands, Ect…)

This is a great ornament project or a gift tag idea for the grandparents.

Supplies Needed:

  • Brown Construction Paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Cheerios
  • String to hand with

Instructions:

  1. trace or draw a gingerbread man on to the construction paper
  2. then cut our your gingerbread man
  3. glue your Cheerios on
  4. poke a whole near the top of the head and tie your string through
  5. Hang on the tree

Thats it!!!! But its a lot of fun for the kids. Please post your comments and remember to come back and share your gingerbread man projects!!

A Cheerio String

 Cheerios on a string

As this has to be the most simplest of all activities. I choose to post the cheerio string because it’s an inexpensive decorating idea that actually looks nice on the tree. (oh and their fun to eat while you are stringing them. )

Supplies needed:

  • yarn (as long as you like)
  • a big box or bag of Cheerios( or any cereal with a whole in the middle. Fruitloops works too and looks nice.)
  • crotchet hook (or anything to use to string the cereal)

Instructions:

  1. Tie a loop around the hook of the crochet needle with the yarn.
  2. Turn the needle over so the button is the side that you stick the cheerio over and the hook will keep the yarn in place.
  3. Slide your Cheerios on and HAVE FUN!!!!!
