for the love of whhoooo??

Ah love..
"It’s that time of yeaaar when the world falls in love every song you heeeaar seems to say… - oh, wrong holiday.

It’s almost Valentines Day, folks, which means I’m hot on the trail of making candy for those special girls in my life.   <3
Baby Mama,  Baby.. and I’ve added in BFF and BFF Jr to the mix now!   Specialteedoo!  Although Baby Mama is slaving over her oven skills to make me dinner in exchange for yummified vegan filled chocolates on Saturday night.   (I’m such a lucky duckie!)

And for MY lucky duckies?   An array of fine, filled, fantabulous chocolates!
Real raspberry swirled chocolate owl pops for the kiddos, and hello… dark chocolate filled with:
Cashew Cream
Rosewater Ganache

All vegan, all day long.


Oh Hallmark’s got nuthin’ on me!!

Let’s do some numbers shall we?   I’m basing these off popular brands, so if you see a brand you know.. duh, that’s why!

So, now I have to get to cookin!
I’m making filling now – as we speak.   I want the filling to chill before I make the shells on Friday.   Oh I’ve got hearts, I’ve got truffle shells.. I have owls!!  I HAVE OWLS!!
Big love

So as I start out on this journey of sugar and love, where will it take me when it’s all done?
More sugar and love!  Only this time, the hugging kind!

Be jealous, be very jealous. 

Off to make filling!

Music listened to while blogging:  
A random array of whatever’s on Pandora.  (I’m busy, sue me).

Current Craving:
Something not sweet.

Current Motivation:
My lovelies!
