Galactic Fudge inspired by Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol 2 #GotGVol2

Are you excited to see the second installment of the hit Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol 2? Well I sure am! The characters are great the movie makes you laugh makes you feel for the characters and you just can’t go wrong with the amazing soundtrack. Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol 2. is in theaters May 5, 2017!

This past weekend I wanted to whip something up that my family love and put a Guardians of the Galaxy twist on it and we came up with a super yummy and super easy recipe for all of the fudge lovers out there. This amazingly simple Galactic Fudge recipe only has three ingredients. Yes just 3!
Galactic Fudge inspired by Guardians of the Galaxy

Container of frosting
¾ bag of chocolate chips
½ theater sized box of Sno Caps

(You can also choose to use one full size bag of chocolate chips, and opt out of the Sno Caps and just use some white nonpareils candy topping for the starry look) You can choose just about any flavor frosting, whatever you think would work best with chocolate chips. You can also choose what chocolate chips you like, semi-sweet, milk chocolate or dark all work well with this recipe.


Take ¾ of the bag of chips and a handful of Sno Caps and empty into a microwave save bowl and cook for 30 seconds, then stir and continue to cook for 15 second intervals until all of the chocolate chips are melted. Mix frosting and melted chips together well. Spread mixture in a 9/8 tin foil lined cooking dish and chill for about an hour. After the hour is up cut up and serve and enjoy!

I loved these starry fudgy yummy fudge, you could really taste the rich Sno Cap flavor it brought me back to the theater, and felt like I was snacking on one if my favorite candy’s. My daughter and I had a fun time getting together this fun treat, and we had just as much fun trying this out while we enjoyed watching Guardians of the Galaxy that just happened to be on TV that night, what great timing! Would you like to make this Galactic Fudge inspired by Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol 2? I am sure you will love it!

Check out an exclusive interview with Jill Schulz and Melissa Menta about the new touring Snoopy & Belle in Fashion exhibit!

Are you a fan of Snoopy? Well being a child of the 80's I have to say that Snoopy was a huge part of my childhood from the cartoons to my beloved Snoopy blanket to my favorite Snoopy dolls. Do you remember those classic Snoopy dolls? The ones that had clothing that you could change and buy all sorts of outfits for? My doll came with a letter-mans jacket and I loved making all kinds of clothing for him from household fabric scraps. What fun times that was. 
If you had a doll like that or are just a huge fan of Snoopy you are going to love the new traveling U.S City tour, Snoopy and Belle in Fashion. 

The 2017 U.S. tour will see the premiere of all new one-of-a-kind creations in every city, displayed via on-trend vinyl Snoopy and Belle dolls, by designers who ingeniously capture the unique style of their region.

They will be joining a group that features the world’s foremost designers—including Anna Sui, Betsey Johnson, Bibhu Mohapatra, Calvin Klein Collection, Children of our Town, Christian Siriano, Costello Tagliapietra, Cristiano Burani, DSquared2, Diane Von Furstenberg, DKNY by Donna Karan, Dries Van Noten, Emanuel Ungaro, Edwin Oudshoorn, Isaac Mizrahi, Isabel Marant, J.

We like to eat out as well each Saturday and this past family day we had an amazing lunch at Grand Lux Cafe.

Do you love breakfast? Plan to have a fun and yummy #BreakfastNight with #Krusteaz #Ad

****I received free product and goodies from Krusteaz and T-Fal to facilitate this post. All opinions are my own****

As a busy working mom I know that putting dinner on the table every night can be stressful, do you feel this way as well? To combat the craziness that sometimes we feel when making dinner after work, I wanted to take the challenge to serve up breakfast for dinner once a week!  A delicious challenge brought to you by Krusteaz makers of premium pancake and waffle mixes. 

Krusteaz wants to help by making Wednesdays (or any day you like!) Breakfast Night. Are you excited to make breakfast for dinner? Why not give it a try after all, February is National Hot Breakfast Month (did you even know there was such a month, well there is) celebrate it with some fun family breakfast nights.

My family and I wanted to start off February with a bang and could not wait to have a fun celebration for our first family Breakfast Night. We wondered if we should go with sweet or savory for breakfast? My daughter voted for sweet, and my husband voted for savory and I voted for both! Why can’t we have it all? A little of this a little of that and we all are happy.
