My make-shift sprinkles...for some reason, I thought I had the festive red & green sprinkles, but this was all I had in the pantry. But I wasn't about to let that get me down!
We are currently without a microwave, as the husband has not had a chance to install it over the stove. So, next best idea....melt it over the flame!!
Well, things seemed to be going ok...it started melting quickly, and we were very excited. Husband kept stealing broken pretzels and dipping them in the pot "just to test the chocolate."
After a few moments, we look down and see this:
CHUNKY...it was gross...so we thought, "maybe its just not hot enough". So as any wise people who fly by the seat of their pants and don't read the directions on the box, we blasted that flame even bigger.
I finally caved in and decided to read the directions on the box:
Aweeee man!!! No wonder it wasn't working like it was supposed to. But we thought we could maybe still salvage a bit of the chocolate and make a few pretzels, until we turned back around and saw this:
At this point, we pretty much gave up. It was disgusting. But I didn't want to feel like I wasted my time and chocolate...I had to get something out of this, so I made this, and the husband ate it :)
And even Fez was able to get in on the action, when the spatula flipped out of the pot and made its way down to his puppy paw level...I'm pretty sure he was in doggy heaven. AND I'm most postively sure he got more than he needed...for the next half hour after this he was BOUNCING off the walls!
PS...I am doing a surprise Breakfast in Bed for my husband tomorrow morning...it will be our 6 year anniversary from our FIRST DATE :) yes, I know its not really necessary to celebrate Date-a-versaries after you're married, but why give up a perfectly good reason to celebrate???
I'm making this awesome dish called Sleepin' in Omlette from The Pioneer Woman! You make it the night before, let it set in the fridge over night, and bake it in the morning. Then you have a heart attack from all the butter than evening :) Go check it out and make it tonight!!!
