Happy Homemaker Monday 02.19.18

Good Evening!  It was a very gloomy, rainy Monday over here, but it’s in the 50s.  The snow is slowly being washed away.  But for us this is not a sign of spring.  Last year we had a snow storm in March.  Hope everyone has a great week ahead!!

 Linking-up with Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom.





So I did try the Chocolate Cherry Bombs and they were the bomb!!  I thought they would be eaten in one day, but we still have some left.  They are actually quite filling, and delicious, not too sweet at all, a perfect balance.  Mine turned out quite large, but I know next time to use less cake dough to shape around the cherries, but even so, they are delish!!  Here is how I made mine.

Chocolate Cherry Bombs

1 box Devils Food Cake Mix

1 container chocolate Frosting (I found a 10 oz at Family Dollar, and it was the perfect amount)

1 jar Maraschino cherries with stems

1 cup of water

3 eggs

1 stick butter or margarine

1 pkg. Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips

1 t oil

Prepare the cake mix using 1 cup water, 3 eggs and 1 stick of butter or margarine.  Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes.

Once cake is cooled, crumpled in a large bowl.  Add 10 oz of chocolate frosting and mix together.

Drain Maraschino cherries and pat dry with a paper towel.  Form the cake mixture around the cherry with the stem sticking out from the top.  Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.

Melt the bag of chocolate chips, adding 1 teaspoon of oil.  Dip the cake balls in the chocolate, covering completely.  Place in fridge for 1 hour until chocolate hardens.




I am posting a video of the same routine, same costume from a different competition.  This was such a beautiful performance; I especially liked it for their song choice.  They came in second place in the Olympics, doing the same routine, but she had a wardrobe malfunction, and it seems that is what everyone wants to focus in on, which I think is ridiculous.  It happened at the very end, but I could not find the performance in its entirety from the Olympics except for one from another country that had too much talking over it.  I wanted to share this amazing performance.  Ice dancing is so beautiful!!


Not much going on.  This past weekend, my mom and I were able to visit with our cousins at the coffee shop.  My cousin was in town, and we decided to meet up.  Her mom is my God Mother and my mom’s cousin.  It was nice to catch up.  We don’t get to get together like we used to, but it was just like old times.

  1. Your chocolate cherry bombs look so good. Filing the thought away for after April 1 (since I’m not eating, well, trying, any refined sugar until then). I enjoyed watching the ice dancing last night but I fell asleep before our station aired this one. Hope you have a wonderful week!
