I use the Gorilla Clear Outdoor Glue if I’m going to keep outside. You can use hot glue, if you are keeping inside the house. But..it will melt off in the sun/heat

ANOTHER CHOCOLATE RECIPE.

Okay, so chocolate is like, my favorite thing to eat so please don’t blame me. If you love chocolate like me, please continue reading.

Or if you hate chocolate you can still keep reading. Do what your heart desires.

We are going to start by placing butter and chocolate in a bowl and melting it over a double boiler or microwave. I used salted butter.

The great thing about this is that you use 1 bowl to make the batter, which is great. We are going to add in 3 eggs, one at a time.
