It’s been a while

Hi blogging friends. I know I have been missing in action. I can’t tell you how much I miss my crafting. I have been keeping busy in the kitchen lately. I go through phases of how I will spend my spare free time. Lately it’s been unique ethnic foods with my own spin. Lately I have been working on putting together the little details for my daughters first communion that is coming up at the end of the month. As I make things I will be sure to post them okay. Really I will. So first up is the chocolate dipped Oreo's that I will put in a clear bag and I am still looking for tags.  I know I can make these I just have to find the right image. I am pretty sure I already have one in mind. I got the plastic molds with the crosses from e-bay. You just fill then with melted chocolate set your cookie in and wha-la! what do you think?

I was trying different types of chocolate but think I will go with the easy melting bits that are pre colored. It was a time saver and made the job a cinch. The top cookie is using Ghirardelli chocolate it was too rich and the cookie had no shine it was pretty flat looking and the chocolate set in a hard rock like manner. (not very easy to bite into). The one on the bottom left was made using the easy chocolate melting chips in pink and brown. (I got those from Michael’s)  You could see it looks allot nicer, the taste was decent. (very sweet)  and the one on the right is using Nestle chocolate chips, the problem here was the chocolate got cold too quickly and clumped making it difficult to pour in the molds. I have to make about 40 of these and the molds allow me to make 12-16 at a time. Hoping I can get the job done quickly I want to make them the night before the party so they taste fresh. Ok friends thanks for reading and see you soon. ~Angela
