Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cake Cookies

Are you in the mood for something chocolatey, well I have just the recipe for you; chocolate chocolate chip cake cookies. Better have a glass of milk ready when you pop these yummy delights into your mouth. Now let's get baking!

First, you need to preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

You will need:

1 box chocolate cake mix
1/3 cup of  vegetable/canola oil (I used canola oil)
2 eggs
6 oz chocolate chips (half a bag of chocolate chips) (You can add less or more if you like)

Whisk together the eggs and the oil until fully mixed.

Add cake mix and chocolate chips. Mix well. You may have to use your hands at some point to mix everything together as it gets really hard to stir with spoon.

Scoop cookie dough into balls using a cookie scoop or a spoon and place on an ungreased baking sheet. Place in your preheated oven of 350 degrees and set the timer for ten minutes.

Bake for ten minutes.

Cookies will be soft and gooey when you take them out of the oven. Let them cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes then transfer cookies to a cooling rack for final cooling.

 Once cooled cookies are ready to eat. Grab a cold glass of milk and you are ready to relax and eat your yummy cookies! Bon appetite!

6 oz of chocolate chips (half a bag of chocolate chips) (Add more or less if you like)
1/2 cup of butter/margarine
1 box yellow cake mix
Before you mix together your ingredients, preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine together egg, vanilla, butter, cream cheese, and cake mix. Blend well.

Add chocolate chips.

Scoop into balls using a cookie scoop or spoon and place on an ungreased baking sheet.

Place cookies in the oven. The oven should have been preheated to 350 degrees.

Bake for ten minutes in oven.

Take cookies out the oven and let them cool on baking sheet for a few minutes then transfer cookies to a cooling rack for final cooling.

I hope you enjoy these gooey butter cookies with a chocolate chip twist, a new take on the famous chocolate chip cookie! Bon appetite!

Organix Coconut Milk Shampoo and Conditioner Review

As promised, here is my review on Nourishing Coconut Milk Shampoo and Conditioner from Organix. This product does not lie, it left my hair feeling very nourished as well as soft and smooth. I experienced the positive effects from this product in about a week after using it. Not only is this product beneficial for your hair, it also smells really good. It leaves your hair with a light, coconut scent, but while in the shower you feel like you are on a tropical island. I just love the smell of the product, make shower time fun! I highly recommend this product and I will definitely repurchase. I am hoping to test out review some more the products from Organix. Stay tuned for more reviews! Have a beautiful day! 

Below is my Youtube review, check it out!

Elephant Valentine Craft Tutorial

I know what you are thinking, it's a little too early to be thinking about making valentines, but I figured if anyone is wanting a head start, here is a cute little valentine craft to make. This is a very quick and easy craft. This would be a great craft to do with kids.

Supplies needed:

Small Heart stickers
3 hearts cut from cardstock (I used gray cardstock, but you can use whatever color you prefer.) (I used a heart punch to cut out my hearts)
1 elephant trunk (I used the letter J as my template, but however you want to make your trunk)
Glue (I used Aleene's Tacky Glue)
2 googly eyes

Step One:
Glue the trunk to the heart so that the heart is on top.

Step 2:
Glue the other two hearts to the heart with the trunk attached so that your elephant will have ears. After you have glued the pieces together, it is time to attach the stickers. Place a sticker at the end of the trunk as well as a sticker for each of the two ears in the middle of the hearts.

Step 3:
Glue the two googly eyes to the middle heart so that your elephant will have eyes.

Step 4:
Your elephant is almost done. You can leave your elephant the way she is or you can add a valentine message.

I added a "Be Mine" message onto my elephant on her trunk. Embellish however you like!

This is such an easy project, that you can make several in no time at all. Happy crafting!
