Something crazy happened last week. You see, Chobani tweeted my blog! Not once, but twice! I nearly smacked my DB in the head when I woke up in the morning and saw the tweet. No, I don’t have any affiliation with them and no, I’m just as surprised as you are that they found their way over to my little ol’ blog.

But I’m so happy they did! Greek yogurt is like Windex, people. You can use it for everything. Thank you internet Gods for making my blog easily accessible.

Whoa mama, tomorrow’s already Valentine’s Day! While everyone’s busy posting recipes of heart shaped cookies and red velvet everything, I’m here posting something a little more universal– Sprinkles!

It’s more than just red and pink, it’s multi colored to remind everyone to cheer up! This holiday isn’t meant to discourage anyone. It’s about celebrating love for the people you have in your life.

Now that my whole lovey-dovey schpeal is over, let’s be honest. Valentine’s day isn’t really a holiday. It’s an excuse for stores to make money. As if there weren’t enough events in a year to get presents for your significant other (birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas…), they threw in Valentine’s Day for you to spend some more.

I will admit that Valentine’s Day was one of my favorite holidays as a child, though. Giving out Valentines and getting candy in my homemade “mailbox” was the highlight of my academic career back in grade school.

You could get away with sneaking love notes into your crushes “mailbox” without them knowing who you were. It was awesome. Thick, card stock paper with pictures of your favorite cartoons and pop stars attached to sweets… what could be better?

This cake batter fudge isn’t. Just telling you the truth here. It doesn’t really taste like fudge. The consistency is off— it’s a bit dry and crumbly. There’s no smooth, fudgy texture. It’s also extremely sweet. I’m all about the sweet tooth, but this was like eating sugar mixed with cake batter.

White chocolate is already sweet on its own, so adding things that are even sweeter to it doesn’t make it any better. White chocolate should be tamed down with saltier items such as pretzels, popcorn, and nuts. This recipe is pretty popular on Pinterest, so let me know if you’ve had better luck with it than I did.
