What’s more fun than making and eating chocolate? Sharing, of course!
The 1st Valois Brownies invented and invited to earn themselves a Quebec Spin! They created an event called “Chocolate Wonderland” to complete the Quebec Chocolate Challenge and in the spirit of sharing, invited the Valois Sparks in order to pass on some serious cooking (and tasting) skills. We also invited the Rangers to lend a hand, as we love the role model they offer our girls.
The Brownies came up with their own recipes, organized who would bring what ingredients, and prepared them with the help of our guests. Our creations included Chocolate Ice Cream Sundaes, Chocolate Berry Smoothies, Brownie Pops and Rice Krispie Surprise with a special Girl Guide ingredient (*hint: they are minty and chocolatey!). We captured the evening with photos and the girls later put together a cookbook entitled “Brownies Bake-Its” that doubles as a photo album. JGraphx provided us with the finished product which we shared with our guests.
After the demonstration, we got to sample all the delicious treats as we gathered around the Rangers camp blankets that they brought. What a great way to display one’s Guiding achievements! The Sparks and Brownies were quick to decide which crests they want to earn during their Guiding careers. It was an excellent Guiding year for the 1st Valois Brownies as we completed three spins in the Quebec Spin Challenge and look forward to completing more in the 2014-2015 Guiding year!
