Double Chocolate Chip Dino Bones





Here's a super quick recipe. That's sure to help with any babysitting woes.


Ingredients

1 1/2  cup all purpose flour
3/4     teaspoon baking soda
3/4     teaspoon baking powder
1/4     teaspoon sea salt
1/2     cup unsalted butter
1/2     cup nutella
3/4     cup light brown sugar
1/4     cup granulated sugar
1/2     tablespoon vanilla
1        egg
1        tablespoon sour cream
1        cup milk chocolate chips
1        cup dark chocolate chips



Directions

In a large bowl combine, the flour, the baking soda, the baking powder and the sea salt.

Cream butter and Nutella together until smooth. Next add brown and granulated sugar.

Beat in egg, vanilla and sour cream. Using either a hand or stand mixer.

Now add dry ingredients. Fold all ingredients together until completely combined. Sprinkle in chocolate chips, any chips of your choosing.

Finally, you should chill the dough for fourth-five minutes.

While the dough rests Preheat the oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit. Once your dough has settled you are now ready to separate for baking. Roll the dough into one inch balls. 

Bake for 35 minutes until golden Browns. 

*Although to get the shape you will need to cook the dough together and before the cookie "cake" cools. Use a cookie cutter to achieve the bone shape.

Craft Corner

I finally posted another d.i.y tutorial......yay. It's super simple and completely wearable. Yet, it may be a bit kitsch and slightly gaudy for some readers. However I do suggest that everyone has to at least give it a try.

What you will need.

Plastic Headband - no need to buy a new one search your house high and low.  I'm sure something will turn up.


A lot of itty bitty bits and bobs- any and everything will do !!!!

Now, on to the directions. Which as per usual come in the form of photos. No worries a few words may sneak in here and there.

Level of difficulty : Easy



Plain plastic headband...any size will do.



Traditional crafting stones, appliqu├ęs or crystals.



Bits from the drawer that you throw everything into.



Glue gun to glue things!!!!



This tool......

 
To detach unnecessary add ons that are no longer needed.


 
Add a few things and the first layer is done.


 
Keep adding and your design becomes super 3D.



Try to use all of your charming charms for a super cluttered look.



My only leftovers....for now. I'm sure there's a craft project brewing where they will take the lead.


 

And like that your done. Now wasn't that super easy.

Christmas Is Coming

Another quick post in the same day. Slightly unusual yet here it sits as a collection of words on the interweb....anyway. I really do appreciate the festiveness of Christmas and all of this years past and future holidays appeal. However, beyond the presents and parties there's a far more crucial factor that many often forget. What is that factor I'm sure many of you are asking. Well, the most important part of my holidays are always the decorations. So I thought that it would be really cool to share what I have learned and a few of my fave ideas for decorating on a budget. Many of the tools you already have so there won't be any added shopping excursions. Rest and relaxation for everyone.

Don't Forget:
If you love to craft check back in the next few days for a few jolly Christmas to dos.
Happy Holidays
