Hi again friends. How is your week so far? It felt like a fall day today for some reason the temperatures have dropped this week but I think they’re going back up by the weekend. I’m a little worried about my planters but hopefully they will be fine.
Today however, I’m happy to be joining my friend Krista as she hosts yet another fun summer hop. This time, we’re sharing delicious summer recipes. Well, at least my friends are. I on the other hand, am sharing a fail.
I’m not really sure what is going on lately but I’ve had several fails which I guess makes me human but it’s also pretty frustrating.
A few months ago I saw THIS video and thought it would be a brilliant idea to try. So I bought all the supplies necessary thinking that it would be a piece of cake. From seeing the initial photo you would think that everything worked out great but you would be oh so very wrong.
As it turns out as soon as you place ice cream onto warm melted chocolate, the ice cream obviously starts to melt immediately, but it also changes the consistency of the chocolate to….
This a deliciously useless clump of chocolate. Not really suitable for our purpose.
The white chocolate almost worked but…umm not really .
I decided to take a couple of somewhat creative photos of my fail …. Not quite what we were going for. So here’s the verdict…with the amount of money, time and effort to make these, I could have easily purchased premade perfectly round popsicles probably two times over. Face palm.
Here’s a little video I made because why not….
But please don’t forget to check out my friends REAL recipes below…happy Wednesday…xo
Check out what they have in store…
