homemade strawberry fruit snacks!

i’ve had a bad experience with gelatin in the past. believe me, sister one has had the brunt of those experiences. orange and lemonade jelly and jello so tense i have to pry it out with my fingers. i was extremely hesitant to try this recipe, but i am so glad that i did. the product you receive is not the gummy you receive from gummy bear packages, it’s more of a jelly-fied jello. i don’t know how to explain it, but they’re pucker-worthy and delicious! i adapted (or took) this recipe from desertswithbenefits, but i replaced the stevia with sugar and placed the liquid in a plastic container where i cut it up afterwards. i followed the directions, which were extremely simple, and love my product! i also strained the mixture after i pureed the strawberries and it turned out fine. i used frozen strawberries and thawed them for an hour before so that they pureed beautifully.

here┬áis the link to the recipe, i hope that you decide to make it! it’s so delicious and you know what’s going in it so it’ll make you feel better haha. enjoy!

Simple Hot Chocolate

hello, sister three here! as it is nearing towards christmas, it’s getting colder and that means that it’s hot chocolate season! i’ve whipped up a very quick and simple hot chocolate recipe with only two ingredients and a simple ratio. the recipe included below is a very small recipe, not even making half a standard cup of hot chocolate, so i encourage you to double it!

you will need:

2 tbsp semisweet chocolate chips (i’m sure milk chocolate would work too but it’ll be sweeter)

1/4 cup milk

recipe-

1. measure out the ingredients into a cup

2. microwave for 30 seconds

3. stir constantly until the mixture has taken on a chocolatey brown color

4. enjoy!
