Here is what you will need to make these amazing truffles.

 

1 Box of brownie mix of your choice

1 Bag of chocolate melts

Directions:

  1. Follow the instructions on the back of the brownie mix
    • Note: use milk in place of water and add a splash of Vanilla extract
  2. Let the brownies cool completely
  3. Once cooled cut the edges of the brownies off (feel free to eat and enjoy)
  4. Use your hands or a fork to crumble the large square of brownie
  5. Take about half a handful or a tablespoon of the brownie crumble into the palm of your hand and roll it into a ball, and then place it on a piece of parchment paper.
  6. Once you have all of the balls rolled out place them in the freezer to chill for about 30 minutes.
  7. Once chilled remove from freezer
  8. Melt your chocolate melts based on the instructions of the package
  9. Dip the balls into the chocolate until evenly coated all around
  10. Place on parchment paper or a cooling rack for the chocolate to dry.
  11. Chill in your refrigerator for about an hour and enjoy!

If you would like to decorate them, you can choose any toppings of your choice. But make sure to add your toppings will the chocolate is still melted and not hard. Some of my favorite toppings to use are finely chopped walnuts, sprinkles, white chocolate drizzled on top, or caramel drizzled on top.

If you make these brownie truffles, be sure to post a photo on your social media and tag me in your post.

Enjoy!

Make your apartment a HOME – Black & Gold Office Space

Black and Gold Office Space updatedl

My husband and I have finally moved to a place that really feels like home, now that we have been here for almost a month now it is time to decorate. We still do not have a clear vision of the direction that we want to go with decorating our new place, but first I believe that we need to start with our office space. Our  “Office space” is a really small area next to our dining room and I really would like  to do something with Gold. I would prefer a whit and gold office space but my husband thinks that may look to “girly”.  I tried to put something together that could possible satisfy both of us, maybe we will go with this black and gold theme. Or maybe we will try something different, for now this is our first option.

 

Any thoughts and comments would be greatly appreciated.

Make your apartment into a HOME – Fall Living Room Inspiration

It’s time for a change, I have come to the conclusion that it is time for me to redecorate my apartment. So with that being said, here I go on my new journey to make my apartment a home.

Fall Living Room Inspiration
                                                         

Now the only problem is how am I going to do this? My mind is all over the place when it comes to decorating my own home. I really need to start putting my ideas on paper and try to find one set style and color palate that I would like to use in each room of my home.

Now that it is Fall, I am so inspired by the  season. I am loving the color scheme  for my living  room idea above. What do you think?

Stay tuned for more home décor ideas.
