These Oreo snowballs are ALWAYS a big hit with everyone who tastes them and the best thing is you don’t have to bake anything!!


Ingredients:

1 pack of Oreos

1 8oz tub of cream cheese

3. Place in your freezer or refrigerator for 20-30 minutes.

4. Melt your chocolate as directed on packaging then take your Oreo balls out and dip them in your chocolate until completely covered. (Add sprinkles or other festive fun at this time).

12 Days of DIY Christmas- Day 5: How-To Wrap a Gift

Are you a gift-wrapper or gift-bagger?? Well either way I’m here to show you how to easily wrap a gift, so your wrapping doesn’t look like a 5 year old did it… you know who you are!

1. Pick out your perfect Christmas wrapping paper!

2. Take whatever you are wrapping and measure out exactly how much paper you will need to cover each side.

3. Starting where your box ended, plus an inch more and cut your wrapping paper.

4. Start wrapping by taking on end of your wrapping paper and covering your gift so the side and top are completely covered and tape in place.

5. To make sure you have a clean line, fold 1/4 inch of the edge and continue to wrap rest of the box.

6. Now, because of the style of wrapping paper I got, I had a lot of excess on the sides that I don’t need. So, I measure how much I need to cut off.

7. Cut any excess off the sides that’s needed.

8. Throw it away! (Or save for later on a small gift or project)

9. Lastly, pick the right or left side to start with and fold in and tape. Repeat for other side. Then, take the top and bottom and neatly fold down and tape.

10. YOURE DONE! They perfectly wrapped box. No more wasting paper because you didn’t cut enough to cover the whole present.


More Tips:

1. The key to perfect wrapping is making sure you keep your lines tight, so be sure your creasing folds and edges as you’re going along.

2. Don’t be afraid to use the tape! I typically space out multiple pieces of tape when taping down edges to help prevent crinkles and gaps.

3. Remember you’re just wrapping a gift, it’s not the olympics… if you just aren’t good at it… use a gift bag. Lol

FALL WREATH FOR UNDER $20

Ahh October… the month when it’s officially acceptable to wear sweaters, boots, & decorate for fall & halloween, which is exactly what I started doing without delay!

IMG_1842IMG_1844

If you’re anything like me, you see super cute wreaths in the store all the time, then look at the price tags & it’s always some craaaazy amount that you just can’t justify paying for fake flowers & plants in a circle…Well, I’m here to save your wallet & give you that super cute wreath you’ve always wanted for a FRACTION of the cost!

This DIY wreath took me about 10 minutes to make and only costed $16.40 (thanks to Michaels having all their fall decor 50% off!!)

Michaels had so many fall themed leaves & flowers to pick from. I probably spent more time trying to pick out which ones I wanted than actually making the wreath! I wanted to make something that would last me through thanksgiving, & if I wanted to change it up for winter, I could easily take a few of the more fall-y pieces out and replace them with wintery ones (which they also already had out).

Super easy, affordable, & customizable – what more could you ask for?!

Michaels also had a great deal on fall scented candles! Check out my “sale” highlights on my Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/blondebytheshoree/

3 Quick & Easy Fall Apple Breakfast Ideas

The best time of the year has arrived! These quick & easy fall apple inspired breakfasts  will give you something to do with all those apples you’ll inevitably pick this fall and will give you that warm fuzzy feeling on the chilliest of fall mornings…

APPLE CINNAMON RICE CAKES

img_1525.jpgThis is an autumnal spin on one of my go-to daily breakfasts. With only 3 ingredients, you can make this just as quick as you can pour a bowl of cereal!

Ingredients:

  • Apple Cinnamon Rice Cakes
  • Peanut Butter
  • Chocolate Chips
  • Granola (optional)

Take your rice cake and spread the peanut butter on it. (I’m nutty for peanut butter so I load that puppy up!) Then sprinkle on some chocolate chips. Easy-peasy apple-squeezy, you’re done! I sometimes like to add some granola or extra cinnamon on top; extra the yummmm.

APPLE BUTTER BISCUITS

A P P L E  B U T T E R… need I say more?! Apple butter is seriously one of my favorite things on this planet!! You can put it on so many different things, toast, chicken, pork chops, waffles, and for this one, we’re putting it on biscuits!!

Ingredients:

  • Refrigerated Biscuits (I used Trader Joe’s Buttermilk Biscuits)
  • Apple Butter (I used Trader Joe’s Apple Cider Jam… definitely in my top 3 fav apple butters/jams!!)

This one’s pretty self-explanitory.. bake your biscuits as directed on the packaging, then spread the jam. This is perfect to pair with some scrambled eggs and bacon too!

APPLE CINNAMON & SUGAR CROSSAINTS

We just keep getting sweeter & sweeter, but I’m definitely not complaining! This is a pretty indulgent one, but still quick and easy to make.

Ingredients:

  • Can of Croissants
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons Cinnamon
  • 2 Large Apples

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Thinly slice the apples. Mix together the cinnamon & sugar in a bowl, then roll out the croissants on a baking sheet and sprinkle the cinnamon and sugar on all of them. Next, lay 2-3 apple slices at the large end of the croissants and roll them up. Bake for 15 minutes.

It’s only the first week of fall, but I’ve already made ALL of these recipes! I have NO shame in saying, I could honestly eat all of these recipes everyday & probably will for the rest of the season.
