Creating Chocolate Fun in the Kitchen

Go ahead, admit it. You love getting creative in the kitchen. And when it involves chocolate, whoa, even better! Throw in a healthy helping of laughter and you just can't have more fun. Aren't you drooling to find out what I'm about to tell you? Well, get ready. It was all around a Web page.


So, stop thinking about making a page as boring writing. Thinking of it as telling your story of the day you decided to make Chocolate Lab Cupcakes. Of course, chocolate is involved in this.

The Story of Chocolate Lab Cupcakes


Our very own Cooking for the Holidays reviewer makes amazing cupcake creations. Snowman Cupcakes, I just had to try my hand at making Snowman Cupcakes myself. My first mistake was not following her directions. But, my hilariously miserable attempt turned into a page.


My second mistake was failing to use chocolate. Ergo, the idea of Chocolate Lab Cupcakes was born. Don't you know the entire effort, which took all afternoon and into the evening, was documented in photos. This was meant to be a page, you know.

Creating Fun in the Kitchen


In my kitchen that day, I was quite busy creating chocolate fun. OK, my kitchen turned out to be a mess. But, the clean-up was worth it! A day of hilarious fun was set up to be a Web article.

My bet is that many of you enjoy getting creative in the kitchen. Whether a masterpiece like the amazing Snowman Cupcakes, or one hilariously miserable attempt like my Snowman Cupcakes, a Web article is easily available from it. 

Don't forget to add the chocolate. Because, well, everything tastes better with chocolate.

Take bunches of photos of the whole process. Even jot down some of the jokes that came from your attempt. Or jot down serious notes if you must.

That combination of notes and photos can easily turn into an article. A page that will forever give you the memories of one time of creating chocolate fun in the kitchen.

  1. Ah, Susan.... kitchen 'disasters' are my specialty. But, like you, I did get a good Squidoo lens out of it. :-)

  2. Just the name of the cupcakes would make me want to read your lens because I've been wanting a chocolate lab for quite some time now. My last kitchen disaster involved cupcakes. I was baking root beer float cupcakes while creating a lens about them. Can you believe I forgot I live at high elevation? Forgot to add the extra flour that is required. Though the cupcakes looked perfect right out of the oven, as they cooled, they looked like they had melted. They ended up being totally shrunken (though delicious). Had to bake a second batch so I could finish my lens.

    1. OK, now where is the shrunken head (er, cupcakes) lens? That would be a fun read!

  3. I remember Miss Elf's kitchen mishap! It was a hilarious story as is your Chocolate Lab cupcakes lens. These stories are priceless and a lot of fun, to boot! Sounds like Diana has the makings of a funny one too! Count me in with anything chocolate -- especially dark chocolate!

  5. I had a chocolate mishap with a pan of brownies. All it takes it one changed ingredient and the recipe turns into something completely different. Baking is always an adventure.

  6. You know, the very best part of working in the kitchen is that we get to eat our "misshaped" creations and in our minds eye they were beautiful because of the fun we had in the kitchen. Oh, and I so agree with you! If we don't forget the chocolate, those creations are delicious either way! Thank you for featuring my Snowman cupcakes. They really were a lot of fun to make and quite delicious.
