Homemade Chocolate-Covered Honeycomb Hearts

Happy Wednesday, guys! I can’t believe we’re already over half way through the month (which means we’re even closer to Christmas! It’s getting harder and harder to NOT talk about it, I just love that time of year so much 🙈), which means we’re almost through with me celebrating my partner’s birthday all month long.

So far I’ve shared two recipes and two DIY projects inspired by him and I’ve been super happy with the results, but we’re not quite done yet! Today I’m sharing a honeycomb recipe that I tested out then put a little The Small Adventurer-spin onto! Honeycomb is one of Daniel’s favourite treats.

We often get the 400g bag of chocolate-covered honeycomb from Woolworths, and it never lasts more than a day in our house (no judgement about our snacking habits will be tolerated here, so don’t even try! 🙅‍♀️) because we both love it so much.

I’m actually really into trying to make things that we normally buy at the moment, so it was inevitable that we would eventually try making some honeycomb. Anyway, enough talking, let’s get onto the recipe 😋Read More »


Marty McFly’s Hoverboard Sour Gummy Candy | Back To The Future Recipe

Welcome to what is perhaps the most creative and best-tasting thing that I have ever created: sour gummy candy that looks like the hoverboard from Back To The Future! Also, before any BTTF nerds (such as my boyfriend!) point it out, I know that the hoverboard isn’t technically Marty’s, as he steals it from a little girl, but after that it’s basically his.

If you’re new around here, you may not know that this month’s blog content has been inspired by my partner and best friend in the entire world, Daniel, since July is his birthday month (we’re a celebrate all-month-long kind of couple!). Considering Back to the Future is his all-time favourite movie/trilogy, I knew straight away that I would have had to create something inspired by it, so I did!

Daniel and I are huge fans of a lot of different candies, but Daniel has a particular strong sweet spot for sour gummy candies. Sour straps, pencils, any other shapes – if it’s sour, he’ll love it! I’d been wanting to make my own sour candy ever since I realised they’re just gummies covered in citric acid and sugar, so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity, and I’m so glad I finally did it! These guys were SO delicious, I couldn’t stop eating them!

Now, Daniel doesn’t actually like fondant, so I left the fondant decorations off of a few gummy hoverboards so he could enjoy them, but if you’re NOT crazy like him, then I’m sure you’ll enjoy these just as they are 😜 Let’s get onto the recipe!Read More »

“Fluffy Pink Dice” Homemade Marshmallows

Daniel and I are huge marshmallow fans. Whilst we usually go for everyone’s favourite Pascall marshmallows, I also have a soft spot for these jelly-filled marshmallows that you can get (in store) for $2 from The Reject Shop. Oh, I also adore mini marshmallows – and giant ones!

Basically, any and all marshmallows are good in my books, and I have been wanting to try to make my own for some time now, so I finally did! And, of course, I added a little The Small Adventurer to it by making them pink 😉

As mentioned in Tuesday’s post, this month’s projects are all inspired by my wonderful partner, Daniel, as July is his birthday month. Whilst he has no strong feelings towards – or against – fluffy pink dice, it’s really the marshmallow side of this recipe that is inspired by him, as we both love those powdery little treats so much!

Daniel also helped me make these guys too, as they aren’t the easiest things to make. We actually broke my whisk attachment making these 😅 It was poorly designed, but do keep that in mind if you don’t have a good mixer, as this recipe get very thick and difficult to mix! Now, with the warnings out of the way, let’s get onto the recipe!Read More »
