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 »


“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 »

Deadpool Inspired Petit Fours for Deadpool 2

I know I sound like a broken record, but WHERE is the year going?! I remember being really excited about all the new movies that are coming out in 2018, and now Infinity War has already been released, Deadpool 2 comes out in two more days, and before you know it, it will be July and Ant-Man and the Wasp will be here too.

Sure, I’m excited about seeing all these great movies, but then I have to wait until February 2019 before the next one that I’m excited about is released (X-Men: Dark Phoenix) – although Incredibles 2 should be good as well.

Anyway, I loved the first Deadpool movie and am excited about the second one coming out, so I thought I would make something to celebrate. I am a sucker for anything miniature, so petit fours have been on my to-make list for sometime now, and I thought it’d be fun to turn them into a cute little cake puzzle.

Petit fours are usually the kind of treat served at afternoon tea with a few of your closest friends – which is the most opposite thing to Deadpool that I could ever think of, whilst still being something that I could so picture him doing just to be funny – and that’s exactly why I love this recipe so much 😂
