I love to have fun with paper, food, paint, music and events and just being creative in all of it. However, I don't feel the need to be a perfectionist nor a professional in any of my creations. I wish I could have a blog JUST about the art of cooking, photography, sewing, art, mothering, jewelry making, card making, dancing, gardening, deep spiritual thoughts, decorating, poetry, party planning, baking.... and the list goes on but I can't. I don't think I was created with the ability to focus on one task. I like all of these hobbies layed out before me and the freedom to pick whatever I choose depending on the mood or time I have.

No Bake Chalkboard Cookies

The Cookie:

Now for the EASIEST how to:
Graham crackers
Chocolate or black fondant
powdered sugar or white icing writers
skittle for the apples
green sprinkles for the stem

1. Melt the chocolate in a pan add 1tbl of shortening.
2. spread hot chocolate over the graham cracker in the middle making sure to leave the edge w/o chocolate this will be the board.
3. Let chocolate cool and with a toothpick write your message into the chocolate. 

Just to clarify the bottom one says "I love the Math Teacher" my hubbie teaches math :)
4. Press into the chocolate the red skittle and green sprinkle to make the apple.  And a white sprinkle at the bottom for the chalk.

5. Once chocolate is completely hardened sprinkle powdered sugar over the chocolate and let it fill into the creases of the writing.  Then use a slightly damp cloth and carefull remove the access powdered sugar.  After doing one this way I decided it was easier to use the white icing writer.
