ST PATRICK’S DAY MINT MILKSHAKE

I have been seeing all of these amazing Freakshakes on Pinterest and decided I wanted to try making these amazing looking milkshakes.  For my first attempt, I decided to make this chocolate-mint shake since Saint Patrick’s Day is just around the corner.

I topped it with green & white candies,  Andes mint chocolates,  and these lovely powdered donuts.  I also sprinkled everything generously with green sugar and a drizzle of chocolate sauce.  Of course, I had to add a considerate amount of whipped cream.

CHOCOLATE CUPCAKES W/ STRAWBERRY FROSTING

I love chocolate covered strawberries and eat them more often than I should.

Sometimes I am so impatient that I just melt me a big old bowl of chocolate and grab a handful of juicy red strawberries and start dipping.  This girl is not waiting for some chocolate to harden on a strawberry.

My love for this wonderful flavor combination is the reason for these chocolate cupcakes & starwberry cupcakes.

For the chocolate cake, I use the same recipe that I use for my Hot Fudge Sundae cupcakes.  It’s  the recipe that I use for almost all of my chocolate cupcakes.  It’s super quick and easy and starts out with a chocolate cake mix.

BUTTERFINGER RICE KRISPIES TREATS

I was craving Rice Krispies treats that other day so I made a quick run to Walmart a grabbed a box of Rice Krispies (of course I price matched and used a coupon) and a bag of marshmallows.

I had all of my ingredients laid out when I decided to look through my pantry to see if anything looked interesting to throw into the mix.  BINGO….I had one bag of  Butterfinger baking bits that I had found on sale for $1.00 a bag.

There is no magic recipe here.  Just make batch of krispies treats and toss in the amount of butterfinger that looks good to you.  Or maybe even the whole bag!  No judgement here.

TOASTED PECAN / COCONUT CARAMEL PIE

Caramel Pecan Coconut Pie

I love, love, love this pie!  It’s one of my favorites and it’s so easy to make.  Since it’s a frozen pie and this recipe makes two pies, eat one now and save one for later.

To begin:  Melt butter in a heavy skillet over medium heat. Add coconut and chopped pecans; cook until lightly browned.  Set aside.

In a mixing bowl, combine cream cheese and condensed milk; beat well. Fold in whipped topping. Put 1/4 of the mixture into each pie shell.
