Chocolate Covered Batman Berries

Difficulty2As you may know, Thursday’s post was Herobrine’d. At the time I called a Category 1 Herobrine, raged a little, and promised a replacement recipe within 24 hours. To be fair, I wasn’t lying. Then things got worse. By ‘worse’, I mean that Skill Up Skillet may be forced to go on an indefinite hiatus due to a possible financial crisis. It’s complicated. Anyway, I can assure you that I will do everything in my power to ensure this does not happen. I will not shut down without a fight.

So, about that replacement recipe. Remember the Zelda Health Potion? Did you make it? Chances are that if you did, you sucked that soup right down without using the fresh garnishing strawberries. But that’s okay, neither did I. It was ridiculously delicious, right? Anyway, here’s my solution to that problem: Chocolate Covered Batman Strawberries, or simply Batman Berries! Naturally, these are dark chocolate covered berries because, come on. Batman. This should really be self explanatory. You could use milk chocolate, sure, but you’d be doing yourself a disservice.

Also, the new Batman game came out. You should probably get in on that. Let me know if it’s any good; I can’t afford it at the moment. Get me HYPED UP. Ready?

Na na na na na na na na, na na na na na na na na LET’S GO.

(I’m sorry.)

Legend of Zelda Health Potion

Actually... is there a Negative Skillet Difficulty here? -1 Skillets? I should make that a thing (I won't).

Looking for a unique health potion alternative? Put your clicker-finger down; you’ve found it! This wonderful thing you see before you is a chilled strawberry soup you never knew you were dreaming of. What’s better, it’s my variation of the Disney World strawberry soup recipe from the Grand Floridian hotel. Short story time? Short story time:

Once upon a time in a galaxy far, far away (or Florida, year 2000) Little Leisel and her parents went on a Disney Dream Vacation. Highlights of said trip include (but are not limited to):

  • Snorkeling
  • Tower of Terror
  • Dad sneaking off the cruise ship in the middle of the night to go on a Grand Adventure in the Bahamas. This is also called, “Bribing a local to take you around on the hunt for certain Special Cigars”.
  • my first (and only) toe ring
  • themed restaurants
  • This Soup

Fifteen years later, I still think this soup is the best soup in the world. And I don’t even particularly like soup. I ended up making two batches of this out of convenience (what the hell else do you do with 5 pounds of frozen strawberries?). This can and will outfit a respectable RPG group. Sure, health potions are featured in most every game out there, but today felt like a Legend of Zelda day. Want more Triforce in your day? I think I have just what you’re looking for.

Are you ready for this? I don’t think you are. I don’t think you can handle this. Eff it, let’s go.

Captain America Fruit Pizza


Ah, Avengers. Yes, I’m aware I’m one week late into the hype. I just had my heart set on making that meatloaf, y’know? Also, I was seeing Avengers on my everything feed like crazy, particularly pizza versions of Captain America’s shield. Considering that my family owns a pizzeria that would have been all too easy. Like, total cop out easy. Have you ever had a fruit pizza before. I’m not talking about pineapple on your everyday, run-of-the-mill Hawaiian pizza. I’m talking about on a full on dessert style fruit pizza. No? Well, you’ve been missing out.

Until today. Today I will change your life.

This is how you’ll get your kids to eat fruit. It’s fast, easy to put together, and once you get started you’ll realize that the possibilities are endless. Use kiwi and blueberries for the Hulk. Strawberries and mango or peach for Iron Man. You see where I’m going with this. As usual, I went all out and made a 16″ pizza. With this suggestion, you could easily make multiple smaller pizzas with different variations. A trio of 10″ fruit pies? I’m just saying…

Ready? Let’s go.
