Scribblings { l .o . v . e }

Good morning artsy friends stopping in today,
how's your mid week unfolding..? it's raining and cold here in my neck
of the woods.. Hope you are all staying warm as I swear it's feeling like
spring around here.. (Too many SHOWERS!! Brrrrrrr). 
Scribblings { l. o. v. e. }
...I Scribbled this at my desk a few minutes ago..Story Below..
 {12years after I met Takeyon, we got engaged, have two children and even on
our worst of days, I couldn't choose for a better man to cherish this lifetime with..}

I wasn't going to participate in "Wordless Wednesday" or my usual photo
linkings today, but a chance to not share and indulge in photography kind of
made me sad. As I sat at my desk a few minutes ago, I thought about LOVE {Smiles}..

I am doing an engagement shoot for a dear friend of mine since high school in a few
weeks. She wanted some photo inspiration so I went on pinterest and indulged
a bit.. You can see my engagement shoot inspirational board HERE . It brought me
to think of my own engagement and my love story with my husband to be.. I HAD
to add in my own photo inspiration somehow and the first thing I thought of was the
photo above.. I took it with my phone so pardon the not so great everything BUT
the lil note totally made me smile.. YES "I'm in Love ღ..."  Share your story..

Pun Intended...& {Apple Pumpkin Spice Jello Shots}

Good morning artsy friends stopping in today.
I have an {adult} fun treat to share that I'm very excited about..
A Fall Festive & Fun Crush!
I doubt Life Can get any better..!!!!
Some of my favorite things about fall really simply is the FOOD!!!
I LOVE TO EAT & Really Just Be Merry!! So CHEERS!!
Apple Pumpkin Spice Jello Shots..

I have been on a quest to attempt as MANY different and creative ways to serve fun
treats when we hang out with friends and family around the house. Lately, I've been
drawn to stuffed goodies. Stuffed fruit, stuffed vegetables, and as of yesterday
these awesome fun filled treats ~ "Apple Pumpkin Spice Jello Shots"..
Stick around, I'll share as many fun treats served to please the season
as I can when I succeed at them..LOL.. Without further due...My recipe..
Artsy Items Needed
***These might not all sound like they will mesh
together, but don't fret, they REALLY DO!! ***

Pumpkin Spice (Liqueur-Hiram Walker) ~Goodness.ORG
Apples (I used 5 Green Apples, but use more per your guests)
1/2 Cup Water
1/4 Cup sugar
Lemon Juice
1/2 Cup Coconut Milk
1 Envelope Knox Gellatin
2 Drops Yellow Food Coloring
An envelope of (Land O Lakes Caramel Hot Chocolate or regular)
Lets Whip Up Some Shots!!
To begin, hallow out your apples carefully, this is the hardest part besides, waiting
for your shots to be ready.. lol!! I used a SPOON to get this done, go easy
and try not to punch a hole on the bottom as the apple thins from hallowing.
You can use a melon baller as well. Squeeze some lemon juice on
your apples after to keep from browning up too quickly.

In a medium saucepan, mix up a 1/2 cup water with your envelope of hot
chocolate, and whisk to ensure it's well stirred up and all is dissolved. Add a
1/2 a cup of coconut milk and whisk it well into the hot chocolate.

While simmering, sprinkle on your gelatin and allow to sit for a few minutes
before stirring into the chocolate and coconut mix. Stir well and make sure the
gelatin is well mixed with the cocoa and coconut milk mixture.

Add 1/4 cup of sugar, stir and allow mixture to simmer for about 2mins. Add in your
food coloring (maybe two drops or a few more to get that caramel color you desire)
Mix well for about two minutes and set aside for mixture to cool. When mixture is
cooled, pour in about 1/2 cup of your pumpkin spice and mix well.
Arrange your apples in a tight fit baking pan so they aren't able to move around too
much and supporting each other side by side (less wiggle room is great!).
Pour in your jello mixture, cover and allow to refrigerate overnight.

When your apple jello's are ready, cut the halves in quarters and those
quarters into halves again... You are ready to serve if you can get past
not devouring them before your tray is filled!! *Try to serve
as soon as possible and don't allow to sit out for too long.

You are ready to get your night started with these
Festive, Fun and very much so FALL!!
Having My Fill LONG before the girls arrive! LOL!! Shhhhh..
Hope you enjoyed my treats and can try this recipe sometime..
