Homemade Magic Shell

Look what I found???? I am so happy! Chris and well, Brooke and I love magic shell. I prefer the Reeses and so does Chris. Brooke likes the Heath. I plan on trying this soon!!! (Well, when we run out of all Chris got for Christmas!
This is the blog I found it on --------->
Homemade Magic Shell
Who does not love Magic Shell? This week I came across a recipe, that is super easy and we already had the 2 ingredients in the cupboard. Coconut oil and chocolate chips. We tried it out tonight. There are many recipes online, some add a dash of sea salt, and the ratio of the coconut oil and chocolate chips are a bit different. We used 1 c coconut oil and about 2 1/2 c chocolate chips. Mix them together over low heat. In a few minutes we had Magic Shell ready to try. It was delicious and hardened just like the real Magic Shell.
And if you feel like being creative, you could try peanut butter chips, vanilla chips or add toffee bits...
I clean for 3 people tomorrow so I'm hoping for a good day! Trying to fight this bug I caught. Friday and Saturday, I get to be home!!!!! Clean house and make cards/craft! That's what I hope to accomplish! Well, along with facebooking, blogging, etc. lol

What a change a few months can make

Life has had so many changes and thrown so many things at me that I've never faced before. 2010 was probably one of the worst years I've faced. In spite of that......there were lots of good things. Momma going to Israel thus fulfilling one of her dreams and her starting college was another. Now.....she is on the honor roll and received a small scholarship! And yes, I am very proud!!!! She'll be 75 next month and walks circles around me. She sure inspires me to do more!!!! If you were to ask her......she wouldn't take the credit, tho! She'll tell you that God has helped her all the way! I am learning to rely more on God than ever since this past year!
A few more positive things.....Brooke is homeschooling 3 days a week and goes to school 2. I like it and so does she! :-) I am doing better physically and now clean houses 2 days a week! Who would've thought that OCD me would be cleaning other people's houses. lol
I've been doing a lot more crafting and have accomplished a lot on momma's Israel scrapbook that I'm making her. Altering boxes/containers has become one of my new favorite things to do! I need to post some of the new things that I've learned......just in case someone might happen upon my blog and find it of interest. I think I mostly do this blog for me. It's an outlet! Just a way to get things out without someone having to listen to me ramble on and on. :-)
So..........I decided to focus on the good things instead of posting the bad. Things are getting better in some areas, worse in others! In spite of it all........I find I am very blessed and have a lot to thank God for! Perhaps I'll end on that note and blog more when I'm not so tired and feeling lousy from whatever bug I have picked up!
