Even though I don't purchase them often, I am a big fan of flavored creamers! When I heard the Cheesecake Factory was developing two new flavors for creamers I was pretty excited, and while I'm not a giant Oreo fan, I think I'll be happy to try out this new Oreo creamer that people are saying turns your coffee into a dessert. You have to know by now that many coffee creamers are desserts, right?
I have a love/hate thing with our Ben & Jerry's. We love the ice cream but we're not too keen on the staff. They do weird things, like not listening when we ask for something three times, drawing on my kid's artwork, commenting on her body and otherwise acting inappropriately. While I love the fresh stuff, these experiences have made us opt for ice cream elsewhere--and to buy our B&J's at the store. This works fine for the Marshmallow Moon special flavor that's available right now!
The idea of a s'mores is so delicious. I love every ingredient! Each ingredient alone, that is. When smashed together, a s'mores is really just too dry for me (I like milk with my graham crackers). How about you?
I do love a good s'mores flavor in something like a shake, however, and these s'mores cupcakes are no exception. They are rich and decadent, and instead of being bone-dry on the edges, it has a nice cake quality that is satisfying and sweet.
Before you even contemplate making this recipe, please keep in mind that the chocolate mentioned is the thick, gooey Spanish hot chocolate that many people know and love and NOT the wet hot cocoa drink which is also good but not stable in this mug! If you pour cocoa into this mug I'm sure it might still be good, but it will get super soggy quick and it won't hold.
I have to confess, I'm a little wary of the Krispy Kreme Halloween special after they discontinued their pirate day special this year. It was a family tradition we looked forward to every year and we were even dressed up before we found out that it wasn't happening. Hmm...
Last week we celebrated the coveted pumpkin pie spice, but this week I've started seeing pumpkin PIE flavor popping up! It's a lot like pumpkin spice, of course, but it is a sweeter flavor. It's also a more accessible flavor since more people like pumpkin pie and not everyone likes pumpkin spice. Ask anyone which they prefer and the pie is often selected.
Cinnamon, allspice, ginger, nutmeg and cloves... together they make up one of the most highly coveted flavors of the year: Pumpkin spice! There is pumpkin spice all over the country right now and here is a rundown on many of the treats you may want to nab while it's in season.
Great American Cookies have pumpkin spice cookies.
Cheerios has pumpkin spice cereal.
There are pumpkin pie M&Ms.
Whether you are after a great dessert, a way to mix up date night or a fun group activity, chocolate tasting is a fantastic way to enjoy something sweet and have a great time. It's really simple to do, although you can make it as extravagant as you like!
If your answer is old potato peelings and something dead, I'm so sorry to hear that. Check your drain and your trash can, friend.
Fairy floss, cotton candy... whatever you call it, it's a cloud of puffy dessert goodness and you don't have to wait until the next carnival to enjoy it! If you have some corn syrup, sugar and food coloring, you can make some on the stove at home. This video tutorial depicts a simple way to create cotton candy whenever you have some spare time to do so at home.
