I’ve always been a perfectionist
But recently, the way I approach my projects has definitely changed.
In the past, I used to complete whatever I needed to do in the most efficient way possible. I’m a busy person.
But a lot of the time, I wouldn’t necessarily be 100% happy with the product.
It’s not that I didn’t put in all the effort I could at the time, or that the final product was bad or even mediocre, but I increasingly found that if it didn’t hit the nail on the head or match what I had envisioned, I was dissatisfied.
Hopefully that wasn’t too confusing. It’s hard to articulate because I feel like it’s a really minor and personal fault of mine.
Now, I just don’t use anything that I don’t 100% love. Even if it means not using a product I worked on, be it schoolwork, dance choreography, or a blog post, I am more willing now to trash the less-than-satisfactory and start fresh.
Most of the time, re-approaching the situation with a clearer mind yields a far better result.
I had another post planned for today, but it was too healthy.
I know, right, what a m a j o r issue. But I committed to junk food this month and that recipe can wait. I took the basic flavor premise of the old post and then just went wild, and having a fresh slate and being unafraid to just try again really worked in my favor.
Anyways, enough with the philosophy because DESSERT.
And I came up with strawberry + white chocolate fudge filling.
You’re so welcome.
These babies are easy to whip up and even easier to devour.
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 4-6 large fresh strawberries, chopped or sliced
- 1 cup white chocolate chips, divided
- ½ cup chocolate chips
- pink sprinkles (optional)
- Melt your ½ cup white and regular chocolate chips (separately!) in microwave-safe bowls, stirring at 30 second intervals
- Spoon about a tablespoon of melted chocolate into each cupcake liner and brush up the sides about halfway. Freeze for 2-3 minutes.
- Meanwhile, melt the remaining ½ cup of the white chocolate chips
- Purée the strawberries in a small food processor or blender.
- Combine powdered sugar, strawberries, and white chocolate chips and let rest in freezer.
- Take filled liners out of freezers and spoon about a tablespoon of strawberry mixture into each cup.
- Cover each cup with a cap of chocolate and sprinkles (if desired).
- Return to freezer for five minutes.
