Guys, I have a huge sigh of relief to let out. Excuse me for a second…
whew! Felt good to get that out!! (Ah! that sentence sounds like I just passed gas :0 ) So what is the deal with the big sigh? Here is the deal:
1. I finally finished Christmas shopping! Done. You all are getting no more. DONE! One heck of a feeling right there.
2. I do not have another AP Statistics test until after winter break!!! For those of you who have not experienced a statistics class, let me tell you-This is a BIG deal!
3. I heard back from all the colleges I applied to. My number one school that I applied to for was U of I and I heard back from them last Friday. Their response was that I got wait-listed. But don’t worry everyone. I have a back-up plan. I’m thinking of just heading straight to the NBA if things don’t work out with U of I. At 5’7″ I think I could be a real addition to the Chicago Bulls.
U of I: IN CASE YOU ARE READING THIS, I AM KIDDING! Everyone else… I hope you all try this cake batter bark because it sure will rock your socks. Ever since I first saw it on How Sweet It Is, I knew I had to give it a whirl. It’s like you can have cake, without all the cake baking steps. Ingenious! Plus, you can make yours all cute and festive with holiday sprinkles. An easy and quick treat to add to your Holiday dessert table.
Cake Batter Bark

1/3 cup chocolate chips (about 2 oz.) (milk chocolate, dark chocolate, semi-sweet are all good)

sprinkle or toppings of your choice!
- Line a baking sheet with a silpat or parchment paper. Melt chocolate chips, pour onto lined baking sheet and spread melted chocolate into an even layer. Let set in freezer for about 20 minutes.
