Oreo Fluff

Oreo Fluff

Watch out! Once you start eating this you won't be able to stop! It's really addicting especially if you love oreos. It takes no time to make at all. Take one box of instant jello pudding (white chocolate) and whisk in the amount of milk it calls for on the box. Fold in a whole container of cool whip and crushed oreos. I saved some oreos to decorate the top of the oreo fluff with to make it look nice. I see that Dairy Queen has Funfetti Cake batter in an waffle cone now. Pardon me while … [Read more...]

Caramel Bacon Buns


I am so excited because this weekend the husband and I bought a smoker. We don't get it until sometime later this week, because we asked the hardware store where we got it from to put it together for us and there's a waiting list. That is ok though, because that will give me some time to defrost a pork butt I have in my freezer. I want to smoke so many things. The sales person who sold it to us said that he had smoked some macaroni and cheese and I never would have thought about making that in … [Read more...]

Peanut Butter Pretzel Truffles

pretzeltruffles 022

Peanut Butter + Pretzels + Chocolate, can't go wrong with that! These are like those popular peanut butter pretzel sandwiches dipped in chocolate but in truffle form.  I really don't have anything else to say other than it's peanut butter, chocolate, and pretzels together. I just love the salty sweet combo thing.  The nice part about this recipe is that it's only 3 ingredients too. Love those kind of recipes.   Recipe from Food.com [gmc_recipe 6546] … [Read more...]

MN State Fair & Apple Pie Crescents

fair 031

The Minnesota State Fair was really fun and I ate a ton of good food. I went with my brother, Mom and his girlfriend. You think that people only go to the State Fair for food. There were tons of different things to look at. A swine barn, horse barn, and chicken barn.Who would have thought there were so many different kinds of chicken?  I almost felt sad for the piggies in the Birthing Barn. They were cooped up in this glass container with hardly any room to walk around. Maybe they were there for … [Read more...]

Halloween Pretzel Rods

Halloween Pretzel Rods 048

I've been looking for ideas for treats to make for Halloween this year. It seems like for every Holiday you can get a container of decorative sprinkles that Wilton puts out. I always pick up some for each Holiday. You can get them at craft stores like Michael's or Hobby Lobby. They also have different Holiday colored Candy Melts too. I've seen these things at Wal-Mart too. These are another simple treat that you can make. I melted some chocolate in a tall microwave save glass so that … [Read more...]

Homemade Butterfingers

butterfingers 021

You can make homemade butterfingers with just 3 easy ingredients. Peanut butter, candy corn, and chocolate. This recipe is so simple,  it doesn't even require melting anything on the stove and the only equipment you need is a microwave. When I was melting the candy corn, and it got to that bright orange consistency, I realized that was how the bright orange colored center got to be. If you look at the ingredients on the candy bar wrapper it calls for cornflakes, peanuts, cocoa powder, and all … [Read more...]
