8 Ways To Sneak Chocolate Chips Into Your Everyday Life

Ninja stealth required.


Ah, chocolate chips. You're always there when I need you and don't need you. Sometimes I need you in large quantities, other times smaller amounts. Either way, you're there and you're ready for devouring.

This is for those of you like me who need a dose of sugar every once in a while, but don't know how else to fit it into your day. Enjoy this compilation of semi-healthy recipes with chocolate chips for anytime consumption.

No Bake Energy Bites

Tori Renovitch

Mix 1 cup rolled oats, 1/2 cup chocolate chips, 1/2 cup peanut butter, and 1/3 cup honey in a bowl. Roll them into balls, then put them in the fridge for a few hours. Yummy snack!

Apple Cookies

Tori Renovitch

Cut an apple into slices. Cover the slices with peanut butter and then sprinkle on chocolate chips!

Blueberry and Chocolate Chip Muffins

Tori Renovitch

I use the Krusteaz brand muffin mix (it's my favorite) but any muffin mix or blueberry muffin recipe will work. Then just add chocolate chips with the blueberries.

Mini Frozen Yogurt Pops

Tori Renovitch

Put any kind of yogurt into an ice cube tray (approximately 16 oz of yogurt for 1 ice cube tray) and sprinkle with chocolate chips.

Peanut Butter-Banana Quesadillas

Take a tortilla (any size will do) and put peanut butter on HALF of it (putting it over the whole thing will make it too peanut-buttery). Add sliced bananas and chocolate chips. Cook on a skillet at medium heat for a few minutes. Boom. Lunch.

Fruit Salad


Any concoction of fruit with chocolate chips is great!

Banana Split Snack

Tori Renovitch

Cut a banana in half (long ways) then smother with peanut butter and chocolate chips!

2 Ingredient Banana Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Bites

Tori Renovitch

Mash or blend bananas (2 bananas for approximately 1 ice tray). Put into ice tray, sprinkle with chocolate chips. Freeze for a few hours for a perfect midnight snack!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
