All you need to make this is milk chocolate or Hershey’s chocolate chips, two ounces of cream cheese, and Oreos! First, mash up the Oreos in a bag. Pour it in a bowl and add a lit bit of cream cheese at a time until it gets to two ounces. Mix it up at the same time. Pour in half the bag of Hershey’s or milk chocolate. Melt it for 30 seconds and if that doesn’t work do another 30 seconds.

Stir it up until it has no chocolate chip form! Then roll the Oreos and cream cheese mixture into a ball and pour the chocolate on. Then put it into the fridge for five or six minutes! Enjoy!

Raising a tadpole can be hard. But if you care for them, I know you can do it. First, before you get a tadpole, make sure you have a home for your tadpole. Dig up small plants so the tadpole can hide from predators. Then put it in a 10 gallon fish tank and add three gallons of water with rocks all around it for when he or she grows up. I’d add vines or plants like lily pads. The tadpole eats lettuce, spinach, or thin slices of cucumber. That’s all the information you need to raise a tadpole.

Hi Mom!

I want between one and five Beyblades and I’m prepared to buy them myself by doing work, and by work I mean REAL work. For example, I’ll post stuff on Social Media and I’ll get likes and those likes will turn into money. Or, I’ll go to a bunch of Zoom meetings and link them to my Webinars. Maybe I’ll even get a bonus in November like Dad.

If you don’t like the idea of me having a bunch of Beyblades, then just think of them as chickens. Like chickens, they’re fun to watch and…

Hi everyone, I’m Valerie. Y’all probably don’t know me too well. I have two sisters: one kinda annoying one and one really annoying one.

Some of you may know that it is my third year at Alpha. Before I came to Alpha, I went to a really bad school. Has anyone here ever been bullied? I have. At my old school the bullying got so bad, we had some random person teach us about bullying. Like, do you have to get a degree in being mean now? I wasn’t really paying attention until she said “Stick and…

This is Nic, the creator telling you about Moodopiya. I am very rich. I make about one trillion a day. Yes, one trillion a day. Anyways, Moodopiya is a planet I invented not too long ago. There are only about four to five thousand people. Moodopiya is in a different universe called Moofokiea. Also the people that live in this universe are called Piyads and they decided to move here in Moodopiya.

Moodopiya is about 1,000 times bigger than Earth. Life is easier in Moodopiya. There are no homeless people. Why, you ask? Because everybody makes at…

Dear Catbirds College,

My life is like a piece of toast because sometimes it can be painful (like you’re in a toaster), but what matters the most is when it’s good after the pain. You put the bread in the toaster. That’s the easy part. When the toaster gets hot, those are the hard times. Examples of hard times are when you fail an essay or get disappointed in yourself. When you take the toast out of the toaster after a while, it smells good. Those are good times, like if you go to Disneyland. …

Dear Mom and Dad,

I want a Belgian waffle maker and here’s why.

You may think, “Oh we already have a regular waffle maker, we don’t need another one.” Well, Belgian waffle makers are so much better than regular waffle makers and here are some reasons. The Belgian waffle is so soft and fluffy and almost like a cloud. When you take that bite it is so amazing. It’s like heaven in your mouth. If you think, “Oh, they’re so expensive,” you’re wrong. They are only $40 and a little more with tax. You may think, “You…

Dear Mom and Dad,

Hi, this is your son Griffin. I like snakes. Yes, I like snakes. Here are some reasons why I like them and some why you might like them. Reason one: they are fun to play with when you let them slither up your arm. Reason two: they are cool creatures and they can be different colors. Reason three: it is fun to feed them mice and watch them eat.

Now here are some reasons why you might not like snakes. Reason one: you usually say no. Reason two: a snake takes a bit…
