To make the dessert, Katie used nothing more than three ingredients – milk chocolate, peanut butter and puff pastry.

First she cut the puff pastry into large rectangles then place a chocolate piece in the centre before adding a dollop of peanut butter on top.

She then folded the pastry onto itself to cover the whole filling then cooked the dessert in the Kmart air fryer at 190 degrees Celsius for nine minutes.

‘3.2L air fryer Caramello koala and Freddo frog,’ the woman wrote on Facebook.  

The woman explained in the comments that to make the tasty dessert, she simply cut puff pastry around the bars of chocolate to mimic the shape.

Victoria records 11 coronavirus cases and two deaths amid calls for Melbourne lockdown to end

victoria records 11 coronavirus cases and two deaths amid calls for melbourne lockdown to end

Locked-down Melbourne residents could be freed by mid-October as experts predict the average number of daily cases will fall below five in the next two weeks.

Victoria recorded just 11 new infections on Sunday and two deaths – the lowest number in three months – pushing Melbourne’s 14-day average down to 36.2, well below the state’s target of 50 which was the mark for restrictions to be lifted. 

Melbourne University head of population and global health Nancy Baxter believes state’s average will be less than five within just two weeks.

Professor Baxter is hopeful this will see the state reopen ‘a couple of weeks early’.

‘It’s going to be at least a week and a bit from now, because even if we got down to almost zero, we have the tail, the numbers from the past 14 days, adding into our averages,’ she told the Herald Sun.  

Deakin University head of epidemiology Catherine Bennett agreed with Professor Baxter and said it was due to the state’s testing and tracing improving during the second wave.

Ms Bennett also believes Victoria could fall below the magic number of five cases by the end of September and hopes it will give the government ‘confidence to reset some markers’. 

Melbourne University Professor Tony Blakely is not as bullish about the fall as some of his counterparts, predicting daily cases will fall to ten by September 28.

‘We are on a good track if the recent past predicts the near future,’ Mr Blakely said.

‘If we are aiming for tight suppression, which I am led to believe we are, and it is consistent with opening up borders and a hot spot strategy, then there is a case for considering opening up to step three earlier than October 26.’

Premier Daniel Andrews declared Sunday’s low cases was a ’cause for great optimism and positivity right across metropolitan Melbourne’.

Mr Andrews said the path towards easing rules would be constantly reviewed, but he is standing firm by his ‘safe and steady’ approach. 

‘That is proof positive beyond any question that this strategy is working,’ he said at Sunday’s press conference. 

‘There’s no good opening up too early. There’s no good letting our frustrations get the better of us.

‘All that will mean is that everything metropolitan Melbourne has given, everything that everyone has done to produce these low, but still not low enough, numbers will count for nothing.’

Optimism has risen among Melbourne small businesses, with a survey showing 35 per cent now believe the Victorian economy will be better in one year’s time.

That compares with just 17 per cent in August believing the state’s economy will improve by then, the Sensis Business Index shows.

More also think the national economy will mend, with 26 per cent saying it will be better in a year compared with 14 per cent last month.

boy 2 dies from apparent self inflicted gunshot wound while two adults and teen were with him

A two-year-old boy from North Carolina has been killed from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The toddler lost his life a couple of days after accident which happened on Wednesday morning at the home in Fayetteville, in the center of the state.

How the child managed to get his hands on the gun is so far a mystery as it was revealed two adults and a teenager were home with the little boy at the time of the shooting.

A two-year-old boy was killed after he accidentally shot himself at a home in Fayetteville, North Carolina on Wednesday  morning. He later died in hospital on Friday from his injuries

Officers were called to a house in the McArthur Place Community.

Fayetteville Police Department, Lt. Gary Womble confirmed the presence of three other people at the time of the emergency call although it has not been revealed who, if any, were supposed to be watching the child. 

‘In my opinion, any gunshot wound is serious, especially when it happens to a juvenile,’ said Womble during a press conference, as reported by WTVD.

‘It’s even more serious and more serious for us in our investigative methods to find out exactly what occurred that a child would suffer a gunshot wound. That’s important to us and that’s what the detectives are working hard to determine what happened.’   

Fayetteville Police Department, Lt. Gary Womble said there were three other people at the home where the shooting took place but it was not clear who was looking  after the child

One neighbor told the station that she witnessed a woman crying outside of the home in the moments before police and paramedics arrived on the scene. 

The child was taken to UNC Hospitals in Chapel Hill immediately after Wednesday’s shooting but later died from his injuries on Friday. 

So far, the identity of the child or those who were with him at the time have not been made public as the investigation progresses.

Dentists blast TikTok stars for grinding down their teeth with NAIL FILES

dentists blast tiktok stars for grinding down their teeth with nail files

Dentists are hitting out against a dangerous new trend on TikTok, in which people grind down their uneven teeth with nail files.  

Several influencers have taken to the popular social media app in recent months to share videos of themselves partaking in the dangerous practice. 

But while the TikTok stars proclaim that the simple hack helps make their smiles more symmetrical, professionals say it can cause permanent damage to a person’s teeth. 

Dentists say the influencers are filing away at enamel, which ultimately destroys the structure of a tooth. 

Enamel – which cannot be restored – is the outer layer of a tooth that protects against the effect of harsh dietary acids. A lack of enamel can cause extreme sensitivity, and eventually lead to tooth decay. 

‘The moment that you remove tooth structure, if you don’t know what you’re doing, you’re doing irreparable damage and destruction to your teeth,’ Texas-based dentist Dr. Chad Evans told Business Insider.

Back in June, TikTok starlet Mia Dio was one of the first influencers to share a video of herself shaving down her teeth, with her video receiving more than 50,000 ‘likes’. 

‘I’m going to file my teeth down with a nail file because they’re not perfect. I have some ridges, and we’re balling on a budget … trigger warning,’ she tells her fans being brandishing a nail file. 

‘It’s literally working!’ she subsequently gushed. 

Many of her impressionable fans left comments, including: ‘I’ve thought about doing this so many times. Omg they look good!’

Another cooed: ‘Did this last week! It def works!

 But professionals have used TikTok to hit back, and get the message out to users that the practice is dangerous.

Detroit dentist Dr Z. Mackie uploaded her own video explaining why users should avoid putting a nail file anywhere near their mouths. 

‘Shaving your teeth down with a nail filer is no good… it can cause major sensitivity,’ she states. 

‘If you shave too much off, you might need a filling or a crown,’ Mackie additionally states, adding that those procedures can be quite costly.
