Liz and Alissa Make Stuff is a show about friendship fueled fabrication. We're friends, we like to make stuff, we're going to tell you about it. This show probably won't teach you much but it will definitely make you laugh, either at us or with decide! New episodes every other Wednesday! Follow us on Instagram, @lizandalissa and join our Facebook group, Liz and Alissa Made Me Make It to see more photos of what we're making and to show us what you're making!

We’re waxing nostalgic for a time before half the things in our kitchens were covered in paraffin. Why, you ask? Because we made candles! Stupid, barely scented, fifty dollar candles. We never promised you a rose garden (scented candle) and we never promised you we’d actually succeed at half the shit we do for this show! But we can laugh at our failures, right? Or at least you all can! In addition to our adventures with wax, Alissa figured out the recipe for full box Chex mix, Liz’s vision board continues to bring the hits, Liz’s daughter discovered the wonders of self-rising flour and we learn that we are pretty clueless as to the size of an acre.


The Basic B-swax

1.5 cups of strawberry purée (purée strawberries in a blender with a splash of water)

1/4 cup honey simple syrup (equal parts honey and water, heated until honey dissolves)

Juice of one lime

3 oz gin

16 oz ice

1/4 tsp habanero salt


Combine all ingredients in a blender and whiz it up! Makes two drinks.


Full Box Chex Mix

Use a full regular size box each of Wheat Chex, Corn Chex and Rice Chex, about 3 cups pretzel sticks and 3 cups nuts. Ingredients for the “juice” are as follows:

  • One lb of butter
  • 10 Tbs Worcestershire
  • 7.5 tsp season salt
  • 3.75 tsp garlic powder
  • 2.5 tsp onion powder

Use instructions from the original recipe to make mix. (But don’t follow the microwave directions, make it in the oven. You’re better than that!)
