Sailor Venus Love-Me Chain: DIY Gummy Candy Necklace

Guess what tomorrow is!?! It’s Sailor Venus’ birthday! Ever since Daniel got me a Blu-Ray DVD Player for my birthday, my love of Sailor Moon has deepened SO much more as I was finally able to watch the anime!

I bought myself the entire re-dubbed series (sans Sailor Stars, as that’s coming out later this year), but wasn’t able to watch it due to the DVD player on my laptop not working properly AND the fact that I accidentally bought one season in Blu-Ray, so I couldn’t use my other DVD player. Whoops 😅

Anyway, after my birthday back in September, I started binge-watching Sailor Moon and was already halfway through season three before I knew it. Once I realised I’d already watched over HALF of what I had, I took a break because I didn’t want to watch it all at once, but my love for all things Sailor Moon still remained!

I started planning future blog posts (such as this one) AND Daniel ordered me a bunch of new items to include in my collection, which I will update the photos of sometime this month once I give the entire area a tidy and re-organise 🙌 Okay, I’ll stop talking now – let’s get onto the recipe!Read More »

Unique Filling Ideas for Chocolates!

Woo-hoo! I did it! After nearly two weeks from my last recipe post, I am finally able to share another one with you and I am SO happy about it 🙌

I had been putting off this recipe, as simple as it is, because working with chocolate can be fickle and stressful, and I had already had some bad luck in the kitchen that day.

Nevertheless, I decided to go for it because I missed creating with food, and I wanted to further my goal of actually using all of my silicon moulds once before I bought any new ones.

Eventually, I got them right AND I was happy enough with them to share them on here – but that was AFTER I accidentally put the chocolate in the microwave for four minutes instead of one, causing me to burn the chocolate beyond recognition, melt the container I was using, *and* fill my kitchen with smoke. Yay!

How to Be Even More Environmentally Friendly in the Kitchen

I have been playing with chocolate more than usual, but I wanted to experiment with some different fillings this time around. I had covered the top of both Rice Krispies treats and bite-size fudge pieces in chocolate recently, but I was yet to completely coat every side of a filling with chocolate – until now!

I have a few more unique fillings for more chocolates in the future, so if there’s anything that you would like to see me test out, let me know in the comments and I’ll note it down for next time 👇 For now, let’s get onto the recipe!

Mini “Ice Cream” Chocolate-Covered Rice Krispies Treat Bites

It’s been nearly four months since I last shared a recipe that involved actually baking, and yet I’m still going strong on the no-bake food ideas, and I’ve got to say I’m pretty proud of myself! 🙊

I’ve been trying really hard to keep my content unique and interesting during this uncertain time with my health issues, and I think I’ve been doing a pretty good job.

I’m sure many of you will know that Rice Krispies treats have been featured on the blog before, but this is the first time I’ve coated them in chocolate and used a fun silicon mould to be extra creative with them!

Setting myself a goal of using my entire silicon mould collection before I allow myself to buy any new ones turned out to be a great idea for my creativity, as it has inspired so many fun ideas that I wouldn’t have thought of otherwise!

The fun shaped and flavoured sugar cubes are probably my favourite creation of this challenge so far, but seeing as I did gobble up these tiny treats super duper fast, they aren’t far behind 😋 Now enough talking, let’s create!Read More »
