I have a cookie confession to make to you, dear friends. Sometimes… well, sometimes I’d rather just eat the cookie dough than actually bake it. While I know there are other cookie dough devourers like me, I’m also afraid to eat too much since most cookie dough recipes call for raw eggs, and lord knows I don’t need to add any raw eggs in my diet. 

So it was in the middle of the 90 degree heat wave in California when the idea struck, “How about homemade cookie dough that’s meant to be eaten raw?!” And voila, out came these frozen chocolate chip cookie dough sundaes. It’s frozen to mimic ice cream, covered in chocolate, and topped off with whipped cream and a cherry. ‘Cause really, it doesn’t get much better than that. Enjoy!

It’s like they always say, a gift is only as good as the box it comes in… okay maybe that’s not true, but a pretty box will always help! These DIY fresh flower gift boxes knock out three Mother’s Day birds with one stone: flowers, handmade, and chocolate. This is also assuming that your Mom is as addicted to chocolate as mine is (now you know where the sugar part of Sugar & Cloth comes from).

Side note: this is the first project we shot in the new studio. It took a few minutes to get used to from having graduated from my living room coffee table, but I’m loving it!

What’s crunchy, chocolate-y, and eggstremely adorable? You guessed it! Eggs in a Chocolate Nest! Easter holds a special place in my heart, and besides loving eggs, I also adore pastel colors, Easter brunch, and marshmallows. Thus, I’m particularly excited to share this simple recipe that’s both festive and filled with chocolate!

Ingredients:
  • 1 pack (~6 oz) dried chow mein noodles (ramen or any other dry noodles would work too)
  • 4 oz dark chocolate
  • egg candy of any kind (I used the speckled cadbury eggs)

Break the chocolate into large chunks and then microwave at half power for 45 seconds. Then, continue to microwave in 20 second intervals until it’s completely melted.

Crumple the noodles with your hand into smaller pieces and toss it in the chocolate until it’s completely coated. Form little nests in your desired shapes and sizes and let solidify on parchment paper.

If it hasn’t set within 20 minutes, put the nests into the refrigerator to set. Top off with chocolate eggs and enjoy!
