When I was trying to think of cute ways I could style our new line of kids products, I thought fairy bread would be a cute addition to the images I wanted to take.
I decided to take a heart cookie cutter and cut a heart out of the bread and smear peanut butter between the two slices. Then put the slices of bread together so that the hearts match up and then fill the empty space with a sprinkle mix I purchased from bakers party shop. Voila! Fairy bread!
Pinterest Promoted App Pin Campaign Tips
When I launched Fabella Food, our latest recipe app, I knew Pinterest would play a major role in my advertising strategy. While creating and pinning the right kind of rich pins for the app daily, that still wasn’t enough to launch the app into a higher spot in the app store. The week after my app was published, Pinterest unveiled their new ad campaign option, promoted app pins, and made it available to all advertisers.
Promoted app Pins are an effective way for Pinners to install your mobile app directly from Pinterest.
People come to Pinterest for help when they’re making plans. Promote your app to these Pinners so they can install and engage with it over time.
In fact, over 75% of Pinners spend time and money in top grossing apps, according to Apptopia.
Have you ever been out to eat, and dessert came, and it just didn’t cut it? You wanted that next bite to be so good, and it was just mediocre. It happened to me, and of course then I was starving for some kind of chocolate gooey deliciousness, and knew I’d have to make it myself to get what I wanted. So, I started going through my chocolate recipes, and came across these S’more Pots de Crème, and that was just the thing I was craving!
You get a little chocolate, a little crunch, and some yummy marshmallowy ending that will satisfy even the pickiest sweet tooth. I improvised a little, and came up with this recipe that is so easy and goes together quickly. You just mix it all up, assemble it, chill it for a bit, and enjoy it!
S’MORE POTS DE CREME
1 package milk chocolate chips
2 ½ cups heavy cream
6 egg yolks
½ cup sugar
Pinch of salt
2 cups Graham cracker crumbs
1 Tablespoon sugar
1 Tablespoon butter
1 jar marshmallow crème
6 – 8 small glass containers
In a heavy sauce pan, stirring constantly bring the cream, sugar, pinch of salt, and chocolate chips to a light boil, until all chocolate is melted, and ingredients are well blended. Turn the heat to low, and continue to stir. In a separate bowl, whisk the egg yolks until blended, add a couple of spoonsful of the chocolate mixture to the eggs, and stir (tempering the eggs) then, add the eggs a little at a time to sauce pan, stirring after each addition, (careful not to scramble the eggs). While chocolate mixture is still hot, pour or spoon into containers, and refrigerate until chilled, about 2 hours.
Place the graham cracker crumbs on parchment paper on a cookie sheet, and add 1 Tablespoon of melted butter, and 1 Tablespoon of sugar, and stir. Place in the oven on 400 degrees for about 8 minutes. Stir the crumbs every two minutes, until the start to turn golden. Remove from oven, and set aside to cool.
When the crumbs are cool, spoon about 2 Tablespoons on top of the chocolate mixture in the containers. Then, with a spatula, add marshmallow crème on top of the graham cracker crumbs, enough to fill the container.
Before serving, use a kitchen torch to brown the top of the marshmallow crème, until golden, or a little darker if preferred. I like my marshmallows toasted dark, so I did mine a little darker than golden brown.
