“What-I-Want-To-Make” Wednesday


I hope everyone enjoyed the first edition of “What-I-Want-To-Make” Wednesday!  I’ve found some sinfully delicious treats for this weeks post, an ab workout, and two awesome Christmas ideas!

Christmas Snowmen – TO EAT 

      Snowmen

These little things are too precious, and they look super easy to make!  This would make for a perfect dessert to take to a Christmas party, or to give to your neighbors as a present.

Mistletoes

I wish I was clever enough to come up with these types of ideas all on my own!  This blog post has tons of different Christmas crafts and they are all adorable.

Mini Garlic Monkey Bread

Garlic Monkey Bread

Believe it or not, I’ve never had monkey bread…this is the first I’ve ever heard about it, and I think I’ve really been missing out.  These looks so delicious, and mouthwatering…I’m going to have to make some.  Perfect for me to bring to a Christmas dinner because someone always forgets the bread at my house.

Cookie Dough + Cheesecake = Heaven

Cheescake Chocolate Chip

These should be outlawed in 34 countries, but they aren’t.  So enjoy!

Snickers Brownies

Snicker's Brownies

I love turning favorite treats into something different.  I made these super cute S’Mores Cupcakes once and they were too fun to make and eat.  I like the idea of turning a candybar into something it isn’t, I’m going to try these!

Ab Workout

AB Workouts

Now to help work off all of those desserts you’ve been eating, try this ab workout.  I love ab workouts that don’t involve crunches, or anything similar to crunches.  No matter how many times that I try, and no matter how many people try to correct me – I can never do crunches right.  I always end up really hurting my neck instead of working my abs.  This ab workout is crunch free!  So this is my kind of ab workout.

The Endless Scarf

Chunky Scarf

I need more of these scarfs in my closet.  They are perfect – they keep your neck warm, but they don’t get in the way when you are trying to do stuff!

Back-of-the-box Brownies


Chewy and delicious!

Spring break is here, and how am I celebrating it?  With the beginning stages of a kidney infection!  On with brighter things!

As I’ve mentioned before, my boyfriend has a sweet tooth and is always begging me for brownies.  I usually make him cookies because they are much easier to make, but only because I’ve never found a brownie recipe that just really worked for me.  The other day he had a bad day, so I decided to make him some brownies.  I used the recipe on the back of the Nestle’s cocoa powder container and they turned out amazing!

I added some chocolate chunks on the outside to make it extra delicious!

 

 

 

Super Sweet Brownies


My boyfriend definitely has a sweet teeth, and he loves everything super sweet.  These brownies are a tad bit too sweet for me, and I can honestly say that I can’t even eat much of them!  But, if you’ve got a sweet-tooth, or know someone who does, these brownies are perfect for them!

Sweet Tooth Brownies

Ingredients

½ cup of butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
½ cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup cocoa
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
Miniature marshmallows
White chocolate pieces
¼ cup of chopped nuts (optional)

Directions

  1.  Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease a 9-inch baking dish.
  2. Place butter in large microwave safe bowl and melt.  Add sugar, eggs, vanilla, and butter together in a mixer and mix until well blended.
  3. Add flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt and blend well.
  4. Spread in prepared baking dish.
  5. Bake until a toothpick comes out clean (about 25 to 30 minutes).
  6. Spread marshmallows, white chocolate, and nuts (if you choose) on top of brownies and cook for about three more minutes so the white chocolate can melt (I broiled mine to get the roasted marshmallow flavor).
