Take 5 & Failures

DSC_0442 Every Sunday at the Husband’s work they have a barbeque and each bring an item. I volunteered a desert as I have said many times I CANT cook. Well after this recipe I am double checking my ability to bake!

I searched the internet for a Take 5 recipe and read a lot of reviews, I found one and got excited and went to work. I dreamed of how amazing these would be as the melted in my mouth like my favorite candy bar. Well after leaving them in the fridge like the recipe this is what I got…FAIL!DSC_0445 It was gooey and never set up, they were super tasty but oh so messy. I even gave it an additional hour and still messy. So a light bulb went off and I thought I will just whip them into some cupcakes and have a sweet little inside surprise (keep in mind this is 9 o’clock at night. I whipped up some cupcakes with a tasty little treat inside.DSC_0448 They came out and I quickly cooled them and decorated them with some super fun Sprinkled marshmallows. Have you tried this? Just cut marshmallows and then dip them in sprinkles. Make sure to dip your scissors in water after each cut that way they don't gum up.DSC_0461  Well I packed them up (with out tasting them) and left them so proud that the Husband would have a fun treat for work in the morning.DSC_0457Well the next morning I couldn't resist and tried one…NASTY! Seriously it tasted like a bacon chocolate cupcake. I feel horrible that I sent them to work but the guys ate them. I must redeem myself and find me a good recipe!

So after this EPIC FAILURE, Take 5 (pun intended!) and tomorrow I promise I will have a new and tasty recipe for some good old Take 5 bars.

~Enjoy, Kori
