Excess Easter Eggs Final: Roundup!

I think my family would kill me if I made anything more that's chocolate related which brings me to today's post.

Excess Easter Eggs

My family's over my baking chocolate at the moment (hence the lack of baking this week), so if you still have Easter eggs left uneaten, here's my suggestions for baking with them!

Solid Easter Eggs
Now, according to my researches (ahh Google, you are wonderful), because of the fat content in these solid eggs they simply don't melt well.

For leaving them whole, I'd suggest either pushing them into a cupcake (like I did last week) using your favorite recipe, or pressing them into the tops of chewy cookies like a chocolate jam drop.  My favorite recipe?  This one.  You could just as easily press them into delicious chocolate brownies, or basically any form of delicious, delicious baked good.

Hollow Bunnies, Eggs and the like
My solution to any chocolate thing that's hollow?  Break it up and treat it like chocolate chips.  Reason why I suggest this for the hollow chocolates rather than the solid eggs is simply because the one just requires a quick bash on the countertop to become around the same size as choc chips and the other one requires a knife and effort, haha.

What're your favorite ways to use up those Easter eggs?  Aside from eating their deliciousness, of course.  Let me know in the comments below, I'm curious!

See you Friday with an actual craft post!

Pattern: No Navi!

It's been a while...  Life's been pretty hectic around here, finally 3/4 way through my prac, so hopefully I can get more pattern making / stitching sometime...  For now, here's a small pattern inspired by this demotivational poster:

Pichu Cross Stitch

My first cross stitch creation, created with KG-Chart LE.  It's a Pichu (from Pokemon), and I'm hoping to continue with this Pokemon theme through other cross stitches.  If I get around to this, I'll post a picture when I'm done =)

23 before 23: 6 month update!

Back in August I posted about 23 things that I wanted to achieve before I hit 23 next year (read about it here). Since we're at the 6 month mark, I thought an update was in store!

Writing this post and reading over my list I'm realising how much I've got to achieve - school holidays now, time to get busy! So far I've achieved...

12. Spend a day at the beach
Check! Was a gorgeous day and both myself and my boyfriend came back without being completely roasted. Considering how pale we both are, that was a surprise.

19. Find a signature makeup look
It only occurred to me the other day that I'd done this - I <3 my winged liner and bright lip.

20. Read 2 "classic" novels
Done and done!
Clearly I've gotten lazy with my book reviewing, haha. I've since read The Great Gatsby, Little Women and am currently marathoning my way through Anna Karenina.

I've noticed it just seems like I'm not a Jane Austen fan but have enjoyed all of the others that I've re…
