You win Nemo, you win.
DD has opened, after my 5th call of the day they answered and I put on my layers and trekked up snowy hills in 30+inches snow #ineedalife
Yeah 2 coffees, was needed. On my walk it was going good trekking through a parking lot that has been plowed til I realized I had to climb these mounds of snow. I was doing well all excited til I suck to my stomach. Walking through it was a good ab workout though, knees to chest people.
I did have some beers with my neighbors and the power authority guys whose trucks were stuck down the street. sup boyz
I ate my body weight in anything and everything with sugar this weekend. Mad pennies in the bashing jar.
I have to go back to school tomorrow yet still can’t drive out of my street. Anxiety at it’s finest. Instead of getting to school 2 hours early tomorrow now i’ll prob get there 3 hours early. UGH. #ineedfriends
Valentines Day is Thursday I am sooo excited. Not really. But I love candy, sappy chick flicks and wine. Sounds like my Friday night but we’ll keep this to just VDay talk.
I am suppose to hang out with a newly single girlfriend and I asked her what kind of candy she wanted. She said peanut butter cups and snickers. Snickers?! I haven’t had one in years and totally forgot about them. I made it my goal to make them. As you can see I had a failure.
This was just a okay looking failure the rest were just completely apart. I would’ve just used a candy mold BUT nemo got in the way of me getting one so I had to improvise.
Ice cube trays. HOLLA
Snickers Candy- Vegenized
1c coconut oil, melted
1/2c cocoa powder
1/4c maple syrup
3Tbs maple syrup/agave nectar
2Tbs peanut butter
2Tbs coconut oil melted
1.5 tsp Vanilla
Mix the coconut oil, cocoa powder and maple syrup in a bowl til well combined and set aside. In a high speed blender or food processor combine the dates, pb, maple syrup/agave, coconut oil and vanilla til well blended. Add in a tbs of water if it’s needed to get things moving! Chop up your peanuts in a blender of with a chopper just enough to get them all broken up. Spray an icetray very well. Put atleast a tsp of the chocolate in each hole then go back and with a brush (or your finger yum) spread some more chocolate on the sides of each of the molds til covered well. Drop in 1-1.5 tsps of the peanuts into the mold. Top with the date mixture then covered each mold completely with the rest of the chocolate. Freeze for an hour. Shuffle twist and turn the icetray then they will pop out (some you might have to go over with a knife). Keep in a sealed container in the freezer for best keeping! Makes 24 icecube tray sized candies.
I also made some coconut mounds and plain caramel.. Caramels were my FAV one growing up, i’d push each candy to see the inside just to find the caramels.
btw dont bother trying to cut these in half, they make for horrible pics.
What makes me happy: getting out of the same pajamas i been wearing all weekend, dont judge. Even if it is to just go to school I just NEED OUT!
What are you doing for Valentines Day?
Favorite Candy? Least Fav? yuck i hate cinnamon hearts.
