Copycat Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups

image

Valentine’s day is here! I found this easy and very yummy looking recipe on Pinterest earlier this week and I just had to give it a try. So I ran out to Walmart and found the only three items I needed: powdered sugar, chocolate chips, and heart molds. I already had a jar of peanut butter in my pantry, so this would be an easy one to recreate…so I thought. But really the only trouble I had was figuring out how to assemble my food processor! See, I’d never used the thing and well…that’s neither here nor there! It’s resolved now and I have some sweet candy to indulge in today.

What you’ll need:
Peanut Butter
Powdered Sugar
A candy mold
Bag of chocolate chips

Directions:
Use a food processor to blend the peanut butter and powered sugar until shiny. Spoon the mixture into a sandwich bad andpoke a small hole into the bag for squeezing. Input chocolate chips into a micrwave safe bowl and heat in microwave for roughly 45 seconds. Spoon into molds first, and then squeese desired amount of peanut butter mixture over chocolate. Repeat chocolate step as top portion of candy.

Enjoy! ~ ♡Millia C.

Listening to the Voice Within

Most mornings, I am rushing to leave the house on time, so I am not late for work. I have little time to sit down and eat a bite! Most commuters like myself have found creative ways to drive and eat on the go. However, I don’t recommend them to anyone, especially on rainy days.
Fortunately, a plan B is always waiting to be utilized. Can you guess it? Yes, wake up earlier. I know it’s tough, but getting to bed earlier to rise earlier is worth it. Allow yourself 10 to 20 minutes of quiet time each morning. To relax, think, and even pray. I found that once I started meditating on scripture, it became a rewarding way to start the day. If you don’t already, it can really set the tone for the day, and grant a good foundation for your attitude and personal outlook.
Challenge yourself tonight. Try turning in early and rising early tomorrow morning. Listen for the voice within. You just might receive peace and serenity for the day. ~ Millia C.

Practice these things, immerse yourself in them, so that all may see your progress. 1 Timothy 4:15 ESV

Why Do You Write?

475

I came across this question yesterday, and I thought I had to answer and share it here. I must say that I have a calling to write. As a child, I kept a diary and later did fairly well in my high school English classes. So, I choose what I thought would be my career in college, Journalism. But later I changed my major to English Linguistics. Oddly enough, I strayed away from writing in my early twenties, because I didn’t think I had an interest in it anymore. Then, just a few years ago, I felt a calling from God to return to writing. I went through much trial and error trying to find what to write about. Eventually that problem was solved and quickly lead to a wonderful discovery. I found that writing is one of the only activities that gives me a sense of fulfillment and satisfaction. That’s how I knew I’d found my passion, and this is why I write.

Why do you write?
