I have several friends who are just amazing at repurposing, upcycling, and reusing items to become beautiful fashion pieces or home accessories.
Me...not so much.
I love what they do.
I see the beautiful results.
But I don't have the vision.
At best, on an extraordinarily good day with my crafty mom in town, I might be a wimpy copycat.
I love the talent that ends people up on blogs and Etsy with a screen full of amazing creations.
Now, give me something foody, spark an idea for recreation, and I'm all over that like white on rice. (Cody's most favorite phrase)
A sweet gal at church thrust a box of leftover salted nut rolls toward me and said, "I've heard these are great cut up and dipped in chocolate."
Was that a challenge?
A dare to try it?
Okay. Game on.
Unfortunately, while the culinary lightbulb flicked on in my mind, the small babe in my belly did a nauseous turn and dared me to try them without losing my lunch.
So, these treats, my friends, were a pure labor of love. There was absolutely no way one would be making it's way to my lips.
I didn't think just plain chocolate was too very exciting, so I decided to mix equal parts of chocolate and butterscotch chips for a Scotcheroo effect.
They must have been tasty...almost 90 little nutty dippers were consumed!
Upcycled candy bar success!
