pinterest fail chewy chocolate chunk cookies inspiration

What I Did: These cookies looked amazing, and the recipe looked simple enough. So I gather all of my supplies and get going. This recipe involves forming the cookie dough differently than most, so I was excited about it. Just one teeny little mis-step, however…

I mis-read the recipe and put in twice as much butter as was called for! How the heck did I do that?! Boo!

For the record, I tried again with the right amount of butter and while they turned out looking kinda like melty mutant peeps, they tasted great!

My Result:

Next Time I Will: Oh boy. Next time I will not channel my inner Paula Deen! I will keep trying this cookie-forming method she mentions, as it is intriguing. Maybe my next batch I will not form like marshmallows, but more egg-shaped. Hmm.

What I Did: I wanted to make caramel apple slices for my daughter’s halloween themed birthday party. Obviously that didn’t work out.

My Result: pinterest fail caramel apple slices result

Next Time I Will: Next time I would anchor the apples so they didn’t tip because they ALL tipped in the fridge. Maybe us a muffin tin?

What I Did: Uh, I have no idea what happened. I blame the Cosmos. We changed nothing. We chose it because it looked fun and my son could use a dose of calm.

Blog Post Detailing The Experience: http://wp.me/p4gWmE-cV

My Result:

Next Time I Will: Next time, I would recognize the potential this “time out bottle” has to double as a zombie torso. But we won’t be trying it again.

What I Did: I did not have enough time (or skills) to pull this off! I didn’t have the peanut butter cups so I substituted with chocolate covered strawberries. The chocolate dried way too quickly for me, so when it came to putting the candy corns in, a lot of the chocolate cracked off. Also, you can’t just slot the candy corns into the middle of the oreos as all recipes seem to suggest! It makes them crack in half. And I had no icing so my turkeys ended up without eyes which made them look even weirder.

My Result:

Next Time I Will: Follow the recipe and have the exact things that you need!
