Carlos’ Chocolate Yogurt ‘Pups’ Recipe from Descendants

Carlos chocolate yogurt pups

I would not want to be a child of any of the Disney Villains, but if I had to choose one I would never ever want to have as a member of my family, it would have to be Cruella de Vil. That woman has no reason to kill dogs other than being cruel beyond all reason. She isn’t looking for power to take over a kingdom or rule the world, she isn’t looking for revenge for not being invited to a party, nor is she all about her looks, catching a prince and becoming an egotistical fairest-in-the-land bimbo. Cruella de Vil wants fur coats. She wants the skins of animals to drape from her shoulders in style and she will do what it takes to get what she wants, even if that means killing over 100 puppies to do it. *shiver* Yup, Cruella de Vil is the last on my list I would ever want for a mother.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Unfortunately for Carlos, he drew the not-so-winning lottery ticket. His mom is Cruella de Vil. Forced to be a slave in his own home and brain-washed to fear dogs, Carlos has lived much of his life terrified of one thing or another, including his mother. Luckily for him, he was transferred to a new school, made some new friends and learned that dogs are not actually vicious pack animals. In honor of his new found love for dogs, Carlos’ recipe features Chocolate Yogurt ‘Pups.’ (wait so he has gone from fearing them, to loving them, and now to eating them?…interesting) Anyway, these cute yogurt pops are styled to look like little Dalmatian pups (cute but creepy).

Win a Digital Copy of Disney-Pixar’s Inside Out!

Inside Out  Digital Gveaway by SKGaleana

Discover the emotional roller coaster inside your head with Disney-Pixar’s brand new movie Inside Out Available now on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital. When Riley moves away from her friends and home town to the city of San Francisco, the emotions in her head go a little crazy. It only gets worse when Joy and Sadness are accidentally sucked out of headquarters and get lost in Riley’s memories (Poetic when you think about it). Without Joy to run the controls, Riley is stuck with three emotions running her brain, Disgust, Anger and Fear.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The three emotions do the best they can, but without the balance of all five emotions, Riley is incomplete. Realizing Riley needs happiness again before all aspects of her personality crash into oblivion, they give Riley the idea to run away. Only, running away doesn’t have the intended affect and actually starts making Riley emotionless instead of happy. If Joy and Sadness can’t find their way back to headquarters, it could mean the end of Riley’s emotional stability and the end of her feelings.

This movie is probably one of the more symbolic movies Disney-Pixar has created. Not only is this an animated feature great for kids, but adults will also love this movie with all the metaphors and comedy. It is a must watch for the whole family.

There are two ways you can get this movie…

1. Buy It

Free Halloween Coloring Page Featuring Neurotox from Slugterra

This Halloween I am creating 5 different coloring pages featuring Ghouled Slugs from slugterra. Today’s Slug is 4 of 5 featuring the Neurotox!

The Neurotox is the ghouled version of a Neotox. It has only three attacks. but they are dangerous and deadly. Spewing acid, chemical rusting and a toxic poisonous cloud are part of Neurotox deadly attacks. The Toxic cloud is so dangerous it constantly expands and is nearly impossible to stop. Without a Vinedrill that knows Vinevent and a Boon Doc that knows Healswarm the toxic poisonous cloud is endless. In the wrong hands, which being a ghoul it usually is, the slug can cause a lot of damage.
