Frozen Chocolate Graham Cracker Sandwiches

I recently bought these chocolate filled Graham crackers thinking that they would be really good crushed into vanilla yogurt (i really like having low-fat vanilla yogurt for breakfast but it only fills me up if i add granola or a crushed 100 calorie snack pack.) Unfortunately, the crackers really just weren't sweet enough for vanilla yogurt, they became a bit tasteless. Eaten alone, the chocolate squished out of the sides of the sandwich and made a crumbly mess. I was pretty disappointed...that is, until i had the genius idea to leave them in the freezer! Once frozen, the Graham cracker sandwiches are so good! The chocolate is more of a fudge and doesn't make a mess and somehow it feels like you're eating a dessert. I couldn't help but think it would be something my 2 year old nephew would love, but that won't keep me from buying them again!

Baby Girl Ballerina Cupcakes--Baby Shower Cupcake Sneak Peak

No, don't worry, these aren't the cupcakes I'm making for my sister's baby shower on Sunday. These adorable ballerina cupcakes were in the running, but they didn't make the cut for the final cupcakes. I'm sure you've seen the millions of ballerina cupcakes on Pinterest, but unlike those cupcakes, these cupcakes actually taste good (Air Heads instead of fondant) and are really easy to make (all you need are cherry Air Heads and vanilla frosting).

Fourth of July Fail--Air Head Cupcake Streamers

So lately I've been trying out different ways to use Air Heads instead of fondant. Air Heads taste so much better and essentially are just sheets of chewy sugar, so I figured what's the difference, right? Well, turns out they're a little bit tricky.
