Yum, Yum, Yum… Oh… AND a SALE!


Anybody ever go to a Pampered Chef party??? If you HAVE… then you know that sometimes they have ‘themes’ for the food that the demonstrators prepare for you (while they try to sell you everything in their cooking supply catalogue… hee hee hee…).  I hosted one of these parties a long time ago… and the theme I picked was ‘Death by Chocolate!’  (of course…) And one of the recipes we tried out during our party was one for these AMAZINGLY YUMMY brownie bites!!!  And NOW I’M ADDICTED TO THEM!!!! LOL!  I made these just a little while ago (with my ‘very excited’ son helping me) to take over to our friends’ house… and I just thought I would show them off here! They are extremely tasty and super easy to make.  (Click HERE to check out the recipe)  The topping is made out of white chocolate, cream cheese, whipped topping, milk, and powdered sugar… YUM! 

I hope you all had a good Valentine’s Day!  My oh-so-sweet hubby surprised me with a gift certificate for a 90 MINUTE MASSAGE!!!! WOOHOO!!! (Can you say ‘major brownie points for HIM???!!!’ WAHAHAHA!)  My kiddos enjoyed handing out treats at school to their classmates too.  I wanted to do something a bit different from the typical store bought cards… so I put together these little treat purses.  I based the design on a free purse template by Angelflight Scraps. 




I used Kim Broedelet’s CUTE kit, ‘Hearty Tarty’ to make these.  And YES… it was a LOT of cutting!!! LOL!  I picked on some of my poor friends and made them help me put them together at a Scrapbooking night my friend hosted at her house last week.  They took one look at my ‘pile of paper’ and gave me some major pity looks… and just dug in!!!  Ha ha ha… THANKS GIRLS!!!

And I know it’s already late on Sunday morning… but I had to pop on here and let you know about an INCREDIBLE SALE that Kim B is having today!!!
