Star Wars “Blue Milk” Hot Chocolate

If you’re a big Star Wars fan AND you read blogs, you’ll know that there are a million recipes for the ever iconic Blue Milk – or Bantha Milk – floating around the internet, and will also know that mine will probably just get lost amongst the madness.

However, after seeing THREE different ones in a row whilst scrolling through Pinterest one afternoon, I just *had* to make a hot chocolate version. My long-term readers will know about my love of hot chocolates (and how it’s particularly strong around this time of year!), and I just couldn’t let it rest, so here we are!

Honestly, it wasn’t easy developing this recipe. Because I wanted to colour this drink, I knew it needed to start out white, which meant I needed to use actual chocolate. I tried a few times to use and melt real chocolate, but it ended up being too fiddly and it just took too long.

When I have hot chocolate, I want to be able to quickly whip it up before settling down to watch a movie or read a book, not slave over the stove for ages whilst a big chunk of chocolate melts. To solve this problem, I opted for an instant white chocolate mix, which I will link in the recipe.

I’ve been wanting to share Star Wars related recipes and DIY projects on the blog for a long time now, but none of my ideas have worked out until now. Hopefully, in 2021, I am able to bring you more Star Wars related posts because I have really fallen in love with this entire franchise.

I have loved every moment I have spent watching the movies and TV shows related to it, reading other people’s content about it, scrolling through all the memes about it, and reading way too many online discussions about the smallest details about many different storylines πŸ™Š Anyway, let’s get onto the recipe!

Scooby Doo Minimalistic Character Jelly/Jello Cups

In case you thought I was going to share Christmas themed posts for the rest of this year, you were wrong πŸ˜‰ My monthly jelly/jello cups have been in the works all month long – and here they are!

This month, I let YOU guys choose who I would be basing my jelly cups on (which I also did for my Bob’s Burgers jelly cups, too!), and whilst I am way too young to have seen the OG Scooby Doo TV show, I *did* growing up loving the early 00’s movies with Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prince Jr.

However, I chose to base these jelly cup’s design of the TV series as that is where it all began, that’s where a lot of you guys might know these characters from best, plus there are far too many outfit changes in the movies to keep up with πŸ˜…

Also, can’t remember if I ever mentioned it on here, but I somewhat-recently started a PEZ dispenser collection, and I got half the Scooby Doo ones way before I decided to make this recipe, but after I knew I was making these, I paid a lot more money for the others so I could complete my collection – even though they’re based off the latest movie πŸ™Š

DIY Monsters Inc. “Scream Canister” Money Box

My, oh my, it’s been quite a journey to get to this post. I have re-made the vinyl decorations for this money box SO many times, in SO many different colours and shapes, to the point where I ended up running out of certain coloured vinyl and transfer tape πŸ˜…

Honestly, my first prototype was an EXACTLY replica of the canister from the movie, but it was so ugly in real life as I couldn’t make it look layered that I ended up throwing it out!

Then, even after ending up with what you’re seeing in this post, I decided not to share it after all… until now. As you may have noticed by the lull of posts in the second half of August, I hit a real creative wall at one point.

It wasn’t that I couldn’t come up with ideas, as I had plenty of them, it’s that they all kept failing. Over and over again! I wasn’t even happy with my last cupcake recipe, which is why I decided to make the point of the post how cupcakes are NOT as easy to make as they seem!

Anyway, at some point I realised I had to get over myself and share something, so here we are. Long-time readers will know that I love collecting money boxes the most AND that I also love making them, and whilst this is my fourth DIY money box, this is my FIRST one using an upcycled Pringles can. (Previously I have used mailing tubes and empty baking powder containers.) I just love discovering new mediums and items to use for my crafts πŸ™Š  Now, onto the tutorial! Read More »
