DIY Flavored Toothpicks

Flavored toothpicks are great! I Love them, but they can be hard to find. So I decided it would just be easer to make them my self! 🙂

Supplys you will need :
flavored oils about 1 fluid ounce (There are a ton of different flavors! In this tutorial I’m using coffee flavor, but I’ve done a lot of different flavors and they tuned out very tasty! So go ahead and pick your favorite oil)
a test tube (I’m using one that vanilla beans came in) or a mason jar either will work just fine
tweezers, or needle nose pliers
Place toothpicks in witch ever jar you are using, if your using the test tube DO NOT OVERSTUFF THEM when they soak in the oil they will swell!
When I first did this, I overstuffed the toothpicks and spent all day trying to get them. Long story short I had to drill a hole in the toothpicks to get them out. If you are using a mason jar lay the toothpicks flat on the bottom of the jar.

Pour your flavored oil in with the toothpicks until the toothpicks are completely covered. (sorry it looks really gorse because the coffee Flavor is dark brown)

With the my toothpicks I used a little devise that’s sucks out all of the air between the toothpicks so its kind of like a pressure cooker. So I’m kind of pressure cooking my toothpicks! No way do you have to do this! I just did it for fun!

Let your toothpicks sit for a day to two I let mine sit for about two days 🙂

when you open them up go ahead and use tweezers or pliers to pull the out. Put them on a paper towel, or even some foil. I put mine on foil so none of the oil was sucked from the toothpicks. let them dry mine took about three or four hours. but you can usually tell but the way they feel.

Best of luck guys! happy tasting!


Peanut Butter Chocolate Squares

penutbutter chocolate squares
Chocolate and peanut butter is a great combination that’s been around for ages! Here’s a simply scrumptious desert with one of our favorite combinatons!
3/4 cup graham crackers
1 cup smooth peanut butter
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 1/2 cup chocolate chips

spray a 9 by 13 inch pan with cooking spray go ahead and set aside.
in a large bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs, peanut butter, melted butter, and powdered sugar(i have also seen people put some chocolate chips in with this mix 🙂 ) mix well!
spread the mix into the pan you put aside earlier
in a pan heat your chocolate chips until melted
stir the chocolate chips constantly until they are melted 🙂
once the chocolate chips are melted, spread the melted chips over your peanut butter mixture ( yum!)
place the pan into the refrigerator to cool before cutting squares, the time is different for every one I usually check every 2 hours 🙂

One of the best things about baking is liking the bowls! Have fun and good luck, Happy tasting!
