Decorative Counting Blocks

My daughter Kaya is learning to add. She likes to add objects, so I decided to make her some cute blocks for her to count with. They came out so cute! I've decided that I would make a set also for my son Remy.
wood blocks
craft paint
foam brush
mod podge
trash bag
I used the trash bag to work on. I painted the blocks using a Q-tips. Added the stickers, and then foam brushed several coats of mod podge on. That's it! How easy is that!

Hersey Bar Pie

My brother Michael use to work in a bakery and made these delicious frozen pies. They are easy to make and you really can make this one your own with a little creativity. I hope you try this recipe. Enjoy!
List of ingredients: Ready made Oreo pie crust, Hershey bar 5 oz. 1/2 sugar, 1 pt. heavy cream, waterIn mixing bowl, add cream and sugar blend with mixer. Heat water in double boiler add broken chocolate bar. Stir frequently. In mixing bowl remove 1/2 whipped cream. Add melted chocolate to 1/2 whipped cream. At this point, you can add another candy bar. I used Butterfinger. Mix well.
Pour mixture into pie crust. Add the remaining whipped cream. You can grate chocolate on top, and then freeze. You can also use premade whipped cream in a tube if you prefer. This recipe makes 1 pie.
