April Craft Group. . .


We had craft group at my house this month.
It was such a fun night!
We had eight girls, yummy food, and a fun craft.

I made some chocolate dipped strawberries.
This is how I did it:
1. I melted 'Hershey's Bliss' chocolate (you can either do this on the stove on low heat or in the microwave you just need to take out and stir every 30-40 seconds until melted.
2. Then covered the strawberry (one at a time) with the melted chocolate.
3. Once covered in chocolate I placed them on a cookie sheet covered with either wax paper or tin foil.
4. I put them in the fridge to harden the chocolate.
They turned out so good:-)
I also made Margo's banana bread recipe, thanks Margo.
We also had vegies with dip and Lemonade.

I ordered the BLOOM blocks and flower craft kits from AllysAttic.
They were so much fun to make. Everyone in the group picked different colors, and they all turned out so cute.
Below are most of the girls finished projects:

Sounds like tons of fun! Sometimes I make chocolate dipped strawberries just because strawberries are on sale. They are the best!!!
