Celebrate With Cookies

Edible Obsession

With a sweet tooth just around the corner, there’s no better way to tease it than with eating cookies. These cookies are not handmade by me nor was I sponsored by Pepperidge Farm. So I guess I cheated because I didn’t bake these myself however, I can and know how to bake cookies but when you are beaten for a time to bake cookies there’s always an easy way around something not everything has to be so hard. I love their cookies especially with the many flavors and texture choices from sweet, crunchy, rich, and chocolatey taste.

I hope this is an entertainment inspiration no matter what season you’re in cookies are always a great choice. These cookies are sure to wow whomever you invite over for dinner, party, or even just hanging out with a snack bar. Just make sure you give the kids at least 2-4 cookies before you stuff yourself, without realizing we can eat a whole jar while the kids are still eating their 1st or 2nd cookie.

Enjoy your cookie Social.

DIY Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Ok here’s my first try at making chocolate covered strawberries. How did I do? You can be honest at least give me an E for effort and actually trying instead of saying I can’t.

I don’t know what made me decide on chocolate covered strawberries but I knew it couldn’t be that hard. I also love to Do it Yourself (DIY) in the kitchen activities and here’s to many more until I become a pro next thing you know I’ll be charging $3 a strawberry 12 at least (joking but serious)

Are you looking for a DIY activity for the hubs or your man and haven’t thought of anything. Let’s hope your man likes chocolate and strawberries (what are the odds) look a bit fun to have a serious conversation, but hey bae I still love you type of setting. Does romance always lead to the bedroom? (21 + up) maybe he’ll be more shocked and surprised you saved him money (shrugs)

This isn’t a How-To make chocolate covered strawberries recipe it’s more of an I wanted to make chocolate covered strawberries and show you that you can make them too. It’s pretty much self-explanatory I don’t have any tips & tricks to the chocolate I did add a little milk (stir) to keep the chocolate from sticking.

My 1st time trying Villa Jolanda MOSCATO & Strawberry Sparkling bubbly a champagne like wine. It felt like New Years all over again because this is really considered “popping a bottle” but only for $11.99 how much did your New Year cost you? This Sparkling wine is best served with sweets & pastries.

For the dipping chocolate, I used Baker’s it’s real milk chocolate so it’s yummy and good I actually put the chocolate into my Deco Chocolate Fondue I know right had to get fancy I couldn’t just use a bowl and melt the chocolate in the microwave. You can do so much with the Fondue it’s not just for chocolate maybe you want to heat dip, and sauce the possibilities are endless.

GODIVA™ Double Chocolate Raspberry Parfait

Are you familiar with GODIVA Belgium 1926? A 90 year old Chocolate brand founded by a Belgian family whose passion for Chocolate drove them to greatness. Might I add really expensive chocolate, reasons why people think I’m rich I have an expensive taste no literally. You would think it was their family name but it’s not I guess Lady Godiva was a legend so they named the company in her honor. One day I’ll google her.

Can you believe GODIVA was appointed an official chocolatier to the Royal Court of Belgium? Make a long story short high-quality Belgian chocolate. I told you expensive. (Assorted Chocolate Gold Gift Box Set $78) Today GODIVA has over 600 owned Boutiques in over 100 countries.
