Smores

Why are s’mores a treat only enjoyed when camping or when cuddled up around the fire pit? Lame! They are so delicious that they should be enjoyed all year, every season, and everywhere. Don’t you agree? Gooseberry Patch has a terrific video that shows how to do just that. It shows how to make s’mores indoors! Yes please!

How wonderful would this be for sleepovers?! Safer than wild ones running around with pointy sticks and it takes only minutes to make. I’m so doing this easy peasy recipe. I can’t wait to mow down on this delicious gooey treat. Gather together some graham crackers, chocolate, marshmallows, and some willing guinea pigs. You also need your oven, set to 400 degrees, and a cookie sheet. Yum! Are you going to make this?

I think my waistline is in trouble. It’s really in trouble after this roundup of s’mores dessert from Huffington Post. Yum. Find them all here.

Here’s the tasty video… Enjoy!

ice cream sandwich

The best Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches I have ever had were at Disneyland. They were so good because the cookies were hot from the oven and they were still able to get the ice cream on there in those perfect circles. Maybe, it had to do with standing in Sleeping Beauty’s castle at the time, or the 95 degree day.

I have tried to duplicate those cookie sandwiches in the past. My cookies are amazing but I can never get the ice cream just perfect. Now I can. This is a great hack to get those perfect ice cream cookie sandwiches. I would never have thought of this myself. I’m excited!

This is the perfect snacks for a perfect summer day. You don’t need to limit yourself to vanilla ice cream and chocolate chip cookies either. Try some other combinations too, like sugar cookies and sherbet. I don’t think I can wait for a hot day to make these, I want one right now!

What are some combinations of cookie and ice cream you are going to try? Tell me in the comments so I can try them too. My new favorite flavor of ice cream is ‘The Tonight Dough.’ So good!

jello glass cake

J-E-L-L-O is a kids best snack time friend and now it can be yours. Who wouldn’t want to impress with a bright and colorful cake? My mom told me that she used to make this as a girl and it was called a “broken glass” cake. I can see why! The different colored Jello squares look like glass. This looks beautiful and yummy but also a lot of work! Will you try it? Do you think it would be worth it? I do! Yum. I would gobble this whole thing up. Too bad I’m going to the dentist today. Too many good sugary recipes featured here. I try way more that I should! My teeth and waistline suffer for it!

I love Jello too but for *adult* snacks. I’ve been put in charge of making the Jello shots for my best friend’s birthday party. Real mature, I know. But how fun?! Just because we are adults doesn’t mean we have to be grownups! Lol. I’m still trying to decide on flavors/recipes. Any suggestions? I’m leaning toward rainbow cherry jigglers. Jelly Shot Test Kitchen has a ridiculously amazing collection of recipes! Check them out here.

Apple Rose

Wow! Just the thought of this rose shaped apple dessert has me drooling. Seriously, this is the most beautiful dessert. Beautiful and tasty. I’m so trying this! It looks fast and simple. My only concern is that mine wouldn’t come out as beautiful as this one! (Remember the apple swan? The one I made looked a little different than the pics and tutorial. Lol.)

As far as decadent desserts go, this one is pretty good for you. Fruit? That’s very important in the food pyramid, right? To make this you only need a few ingredients. A puff pastry, apples, lemon juice, apricot/some flavored preserve to add sweetness, and flour (for the work space). Cinnamon and powdered sugar are optional. I think the key to this rose is slicing the apples very thin.

This apple rose got me thinking… I want to make more tasty flower shaped treats! Not a problem, Pop Sugar has the best roundup! There is everything from pancakes, peppers, quesadillas, ham sandwiches and cookies. These foods are sure to impress the littles in your life. So fun.

Mini Cherry Pies

Mason jar meals are the best. So cute! And these pies are no exception. They are portable and adorable and I can’t wait to try my hand at making them. I love the simplistic look of mason jars and how easy this recipe is to make.

Mini pies are great for entertaining! We should all have some pre-made and waiting to pop in the oven. Be the ‘hostess with the mostess!’ These will last in the freezer for months. Mason jar pies are also perfect for on-the-go lunches and portion control eating.

Check out the ‘more’ section in the video below to find the delicious recipe for homemade crust and filling. Yum! You could always swap out store bought pie filling if short on time but I don’t recommend it. This one looks soooo good! Another pie that looks heavenly is Organized Like Jen’s apple pie in a mason jar. Find it here.

Fudge

Why is fudge only considered a holiday treat? I am guilty of only making it during the winter months and around Christmas too. It’s so delicious and that shouldn’t be the case when there are such easy microwave and freezer recipes. This peanut butter freezer fudge should get us running for the baking supplies post haste!

Grab some condensed milk, butter, whipping cream, vanilla, and peanut butter (smooth for me). Mix it all together in a stock pot until it’s creamy, bubbly, and starts to thicken up. Pour it into a lined baking dish, cool to room temperature, freeze, cut, and eat. Don’t eat it all at once! This is where I want to get all my calories for the week! Gladly.

Can’t get enough fudge? Neither can Mr. Food! He has eight, count ‘em, eight decadent fudge recipes that you must try sometime soon. The fudge cheesecake bars look like heaven in chocolate form. I’m pretty keen on the turtle fudge too.

Nutella

The One Pot Chef has a true passion for food and I’m so glad that he shares his recipes with us! Recipes like this no-bake Nutella Cheesecake. Yum! Nutella is the byproduct of a marriage between chocolate and hazelnut. It makes a delicious spread that can be put on almost anything and, like this cheesecake, is to die for.

I just learned that there is a world Nutella day. We missed February 5th this year but let’s all commit to make this cake next year. I’m not going to wait untill then to make this! It’ll be a wonder if I can make it into next week. Lol. This is terrific. It would be fun to try this with peanut butter too. Think that would work?

Now I can’t stop thinking about yummy creamy cheesecake! Must-Have-Cheesecake! I’m all about the no-bake method too. All the deliciousness without the delay. Score! The Joy Of Baking has another recipe that you must try. Check it out here.

Here’s the video…Enjoy (and eat up)!

SKittles

Yum! I’m starving and seeing this delicious cake only makes it worse. Sugar! Love it! It will rot our teeth and make us fat if we gobbled it up every day but it’s ok to indulge once in a while. Why not indulge is this bright colorful tasty treat?! I think I will. I know the fam will be so happy with this dessert!

I hope you have experienced the goodness that is a poke cake. Normally they are made with jello but there are recipes that range from pudding to strawberry lemonade. Very good. My Granny used to make them all the time. This cake, talk about a blast from the past! This version of the cake is made with skittles. I think everyone loves that candy so I’m pretty sure everyone will love this cake.

This is a little more time consuming than a regular cake but worth it. Melting the skittles down unto a gel can take a little bit of time. I’m still game to try. This is an amazing video tutorial, complete with recipe, detailed steps, and all ingredients listed out for us! I’m so excited to feature this here today! Vanilla/white cake with skittles colors and flavors? Yes please!

Life is too short to not have fun and try delicious desserts. Wine And Glue has 30 delicious poke cake recipes you must try someday! I promise you won’t be disappointed. Here they are.

dump cake recipe

Cheese, chocolate, ice cream. Cake is cake. But dump cake? Hummm. I wasn’t too sure about it but after seeing this video I’m a believer! It’s made from really simple ingredient. (Lots of butter and sugar! My favorites!) You will only need 10 minutes of prep time and 1 hour of cook time, this cake is an all around winner.

The thing is, I’ve eaten this cake before and it is good! I just didn’t know what it was at the time or how to make it. Now I know and you can be sure I’ll be making it. Maybe it’ll become my potluck staple.

I don’t much care for cherries or walnuts so I would tweak the recipe and experiment with all types of flavors. How fun will that be?! Raspberry filling with a chocolate cake mix would be heaven. A peach version would be yummy too. It almost looks like a cake/crisp hybrid. Fine by me! I love crisps almost as much as I love cakes. Epicurious has one of my absolute favorite crisp recipes. Find it here.

Holy Donuts

There is the most magical donut shop not too far from me. Just driving by it can brighten my day. They serve their treats in bright pink boxes and none taste better than their donut holes. Sadly, they are a little spendy and I don’t treat myself to those pink boxes of happiness all that often. I’m so glad to have found a donut hole DIY. My life is now complete!

This truly is as advertised. Three minute donut holes. Three minutes until you will be enjoying warm golden brown deliciousness. You will need biscuit dough, sugar, and oil for frying. And of course toppings. Careful when using hot oil. It will only take a few singed arm hairs to make you cautious. Other than that have fun!

The only downside of this video tutorial. Added calories. You now are armed with the knowledge of how to make delicious sugary donut holes and must resist the temptation to not make them every single day. Good luck with that. With great knowledge comes great responsibility and all that.
