How to Make Chocolate Candy Cupcakes

That being said, I hope everyone has a great holiday! If you need me over the next couple of days, I will be stuffing my face with inappropriate amounts while also avoiding questions about why I am STILL single.

For those of you who are new to the single life and are feeling a little anxious about your families asking you a bunch of questions…no need to worry. I am a professional single lifer and I am going to give you a few tips on how to handle a family interrogation this weekend. When they ask you why you are single here are your options…

  1. Tell them food is the only thing that really makes you happy.
  2. Say you are waiting for the new year to start dating because you didn’t want to spend money on holiday gifts.
  3. Tell them that you have seen this guy a couple of times now, and you think it’s going well…but you are waiting to see where things are going. Just don’t tell them you are actually talking about the pizza delivery man.
  4. Literally run away when anyone starts to ask you about your dating life.
  5. Play dead. It works every single time.

You are welcome. Happy Holidays!

99% of what I make gets eaten by me or shared with friends or family. But I wanted these guys to last a little longer! So I went with dummies! 🎂
