A few weeks ago, I went to a barbeque. On the table there was plate of what looked to be a chocolate type dish that was crumbled up. I grabbed a piece, ate it, had eight more pieces, and then went on a mad hunt throughout the barbeque to see who brought the stuff and how much I would have to pay them for the recipe. After not too much work I tracked it down, and trust me. You want to make this. What’s fantastic about this stuff is many things. Directions 1) Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil. 2) Then layer in crackers. 3) Melt the butter in a saucepan and then stir in the brown sugar. 4) Once it has simmered for a few minutes, pour it straight on the crackers. 5) Next, stick your baking sheet in the oven at 325 degrees for 5-10 minutes. 6) When you take it out of the oven, pour the chocolate chips on the tray right away. 7) Meanwhile, crumble up some heath bars. 8) After 5 minutes, use a spatula to spread out the chocolate and make the chips flat. 11) Then just bust the stuff up! Ok. Um.

The pastry with the gooey disappearing marshmallow and nutella make for a treat that you just must try for yourself! Enjoy! how to transfer a photo to fabric Did you know you can transfer photos to fabric without using iron-on sheets? I love this technique. It's simple to execute and the end results are really pretty. It's another method for hand printing! I made some fabrics the other day and used them to add pockets to one of my wool skirts. This time I decided to make it with those mini fruit flavored marshmallows. I had to sort them by colour first. I figured they would add a little bit of flavor to the fondant so I wouldn't have to add much flavoring oil. I use gel colours to dye my fondant but regular food colouring will work too. You won't be able to get really dark colours without making your fondant sticky, but for lighter colours you can just even it out with more icing sugar.

DIY: Homemade York Peppermint Patties Recipe Halloween is just a couple of days away, but you won’t find any spooky decorations at my house. I’m pretty much the scrooge of Halloween… I think I stopped trick or treating before I was out of grade school, and only dressed up once (in college, and it was a tie-dye t-shirt – I made myself a hippie) since then… I hate scary movies… spiders, skulls and eye balls gross me out. However, I do find that Halloween has one redeeming quality – the candy, of course!
