The Meteorologist called for a cold dry weekend.
Our new Christmas saucers sitting unused in the garage.
You have to love when the forecast is wrong!
They can also be made without the stick.
Here is the review: These were a huge pain in the ass to make.
They were really messy and I had chocolate and sprinkles everywhere.
They are NOT a kid friendly cooking project. Well, unless you call yelling "PLEASE just get OUT of the kitchen!" kid friendly.
They tasted really, really good. And I don't even like cake so much. Or chocolate. So they would taste REALLY good to a normal person!
I think I will make these again. I will make the cake balls a little smaller (grape sized.)
I will melt the chocolate in smaller quantities.
I will use a better quality chocolate melts
I will put them in the freezer a bit to chill them more
I will do this when the kids are at school.
I will add any or all of the following (to my glass!):
camp at Assateague
ride bikes on the boardwalk
Ocean City fishing Pier
camp in the backyard
go to the zoo
go to the aquarium
make fresh lemonade
plant a garden
do crystal caves craft **
go to Cascade Lake
learn to knit
visit Carroll County Pond
go to the FairBold and italic means we did them.
* means we WENT to pick peaches but they were gone. We DID pick raspberries instead
** means this was the most involved, hard to follow craft ever invented in the history of the world, and we just gave up.
Some things we did more than once. On Assateague in the spring we found a really cool whale carcass.
By summer is was so festeringly gross I almost barfed.
Also by summer the mosquitoes were worse that having your fingernails pulled off, which negated the "Camping at Assateague" goal.During our trip to the aquarium we met up with an old friend Chris, his wife Margaret, and their daughter Abbey. I had not seen Chris in 14 years!
When we went to the zoo, we met up with my friend Kelly who I had not seen in 20 years!
