Death by Chocolate
Serves up to 24 people (or 1 serious chocoholic!)
1 box (19.8 oz) fudge brownie mix
3 packages (4 servings each) instant chocolate mousse
8 chocolate-covered toffee candy bars (1.4 oz. each)...like SKOR or Heath bars)
1 large container (12 oz) frozen whipped topping, thawed
Bake the brownies according the the package directions; let cool. Prepare the chocolate mousse according to the package directions. Break the candy bars into small pieces in a food processor or by gently tapping the wrapped bars with a hammer. Break up half of the brownies into small pieces and place in the bottom of a large glass bowl. Cover with half of the mouse, then half of the candy, and then half of the whipped topping. Repeat layers with the remaining ingredients.
Last weekend was also Valentine's weekend. I helped Ariel decorate a shoebox last week for her Valentines. It brought back many memories of making my own Valentine boxes with my mom. My sweet hubby sent me some beautiful miniature daylilies that I have been enjoying all week. I asked him not to get me chocolate this year as I'm trying to drop a few pounds. But that didn't stop me from getting him some yummy Ghirardelli dark chocolate. Since I'm not as much of a fan of dark chocolate as I am of milk chocolate, they won't be tempting for me. Hope you enjoyed getting and receiving some Valentine gifts as well.
For Show and Tell today I have the beautiful Colonnade Shawl that Debbie made from 2 skeins of Feza Cyprus Mohair and 1 skein of Tahki Bunny. I've already picked out my yarn to make this one. Great job, Debbie.
Kori finished her 10 Stitch Blanket. It's a free pattern on Ravelry, but if you take Mimi's class she will give you lots of great tips for making it...including how to knit backwards! Isn't it just simply gorgeous! I've been pondering which colors of Noro Silk Garden yarn I want to use to make one for the shop.
Melissa brought in her doll wearing the dress she knitted for her. She also made the coat and purse. Very creative!
And finally, Aggie finished her first sock using Berroco Comfort yarn and Lisa's I Don't Give a Darn pattern. Way to go, Aggie!
I think we're going to have a heat wave this weekend. Saturday looks to be a great day to wash the car and get rid of all the salt. Enjoy the sunshine!
