Who doesn't like dessert? I'm guessing most of us do!

So share with us some wild, crazy, silly or just plain OUTRAGEOUS
desserts you've come across.

1. Tell us the name of the dessert (s).

2. Post a picture of it if you can.

3. Of course we want the recipe if possible.

4. We're also curious - With interest in Pinterest rising, have you been inspired to make anything you've seen on their site?

*Please link to your source to give credit where it's due!*


Here's a silly one I found. 

It's Baked Potato Ice Cream!


Ingredients

For the "butter" frosting:

  • Yellow frosting

For the potato ice cream:

  • 1 pint vanilla ice cream
  • Cocoa Powder (recommended: Hershey's)
  • Whipped topping (recommended: Cool Whip)
  • Yellow frosting (recommended: Betty Crocker)
  • 1/4 cup chopped pistachios

For the "butter" frosting:

Directions

Line the inside of a cover of a butter dish with plastic wrap. Fill the cover completely with yellow frosting and freeze until hard. Lift the "butter" out of the cover using the plastic wrap. Cut into squares.

For the potato ice cream:

Have a sheet pan covered with plastic wrap. On 1/2 of the pan, place the pint of ice cream down on its side. Fold the plastic over the ice cream and make a seal.


Using your hands, quickly form the ice cream into a potato shape. Then, create a wedge across the length of the potato. Tightly twist the ends of the plastic wrap and make knots at each end, like a mozzarella ball.


Place the ice cream in the freezer until it hardens, about 20 to 30 minutes.


Remove the ice cream from the freezer, unwrap and dust all over with cocoa powder. Fill the wedge with whipped topping and place a pat of "butter" frosting on top. Sprinkle with pistachios and serve immediately.


While you wait for your request to be filled check these posts out too!


We hope you have fun and enjoy your time here!!

Cadbury Mini Egg Blondies



Best part of this time of year.

Cadbury Mini Eggs have hit the stores.

I look forward to this  all year round. They are hands down my favorite candy. Love the crunchy shell and the super smooth milk chocolate centers. OMG

It's sad the day after Easter when candy is like 50% off, I head into the stores and stock up.

If you are an Easter Candy lover like myself, make these! Sooooo good. (even though it pained met dump a whole bag of my precious mini eggs into the mixing bowl!)



Cadbury Mini Egg Blondies
Recipe Adapted From All Recipes 

Ingredients:

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 egg
1 egg yolk
2 cups milk chocolate mini eggs

Directions:

In a medium sizes mixing bowl sift flower, baking soda and salt together.


Melt butter over medium heat. Once melted add to the bowl of your electric mixer. Cream together with sugars.

Add in vanilla and eggs mix until creamy.

Slowly add in flour mixture until it is incorporated.

Fold in Mini Eggs.

Spread batter into a greased 8x8 or 9x9 baking dish. Bake at 325 for about 40 minutes or until a tooth pick is inserted in the center and comes out clean. 

Let the bars cool for 30 minutes before slicing.

Enjoy!

I forgot a step! before you put the chocolate glaze on pop the cups in the freezer for like 10-15 minutes so the chocolate doesn't melt the fondant.
