I’d love to think of myself as the next Pioneer Women, but that would be a bold face lie. It’s not that I’m above lying to myself, I do that all of the time! You know, whenever I justify a run to Starbucks, an extra macaron or 5, late night ice cream, it’s all just a lie I love to hear… but pretending to work insane hours in a week AND cooking from scratch isn’t a fib I even begin to let myself believe. Hence my new found love with the phrase “only ______ ingredients”, and then promptly inserting a number between 1 and 6. It’s rewarding, I tell ya!

Anyways, all of this to say I’m going to make sure I spread my cheat sheet recipes with all of you fellow busy-bodies from here on out, starting with this super easy, two ingredient chocolate croissant recipe…

DIY Edible Chocolate Messages

The next time someone asks me what my favorite past time is, I’m going to tell them I color on food just to see what kind of reaction I get. If that doesn’t work, I’m going to go all wallet -sized yearbook photo on them and whip out a mini portfolio from my bag and talk about my food craft projects longer than a crazy cat lady with a new kitten (also, me apparently). Sad part is it’s truer than I’d like to admit (sans the wallet prints for now), but what the hey, you only live once, so I’m going to freakin’ paint my desserts if I want to.

Alas, these DIY edible chocolate messages take a little too long for writing an entire love note (or about your entire love affair with painting food), but they get the short and sweet messages across loud and clear. Also, if you have a Dad like mine, you’ll get to use the most perfect infomercial purchase of all time for them too…

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!
