Peeps Cake

Peeps Cake

Happy Easter everyone! We all know the best part about Easter is the candy right? Just kidding!

There was a cake at my grocery store that inspired me to make this. The cake was a two layer cake with marshmallow peeps around it and M&M’s on top. They wanted 20.00 for the cake too, and my only thought was that is way too expensive! I made this cake for under 10.00 using boxed cake mix. Had all the ingredients at home to make the cake, and just had to go out and buy some peep marshallows which were 1.29 a box, and a bag of pastel colored M&M’s for the top. Oh yah, and the frosting I had to buy too. Hope you like it!

Make sure the cake is completely cooled when you frost it. The super moist cakes are kind of hard to frost too begin with since they’re so delicate and moist. Be careful as you can see what happened below when I tried to frost mine. :)

I actually have to admit something to everyone. The cake had a little accident. One of the sides ended up collapsing so I just took some photos around that part. You see?

Peach Dump Cake

Peach Dump Cake is a layered cake with canned peaches, yellow cake mix, butter, brown sugar and nuts. It doesn’t taste like a cake, more like a peach crisp and it was super yummy and EASY! I had a craving for canned peaches this week and that craving has now been taken care of with this cake.

Dump everything into a 9 X 13 baking dish. Then bake in a 350 degree oven for 40 minutes. The hard part is always waiting for the cake to cool.

Waffle Ice Cream Sandwiches

Last night, I posted a recipe for Waffle Ice Cream Sandwiches on my facebook page and oh man did I ever want a one of those. I had everything in my pantry to make them. All I thought about at work today were Waffle Ice Cream Sanwiches and finally it was 2:30 so I could go home and make one. I made mine with Edie’s Half the Fat Rocky Road Ice Cream and only used one waffle to make these. Garnished the waffles sandwiches with some peanuts, cool whip, and hot fudge. They do not disappoint! Who says you can’t have ice cream for breakfast? Yes you can.

Molten Deep Dish Cookie Bars!

bars 007

I am so excited to share this post with everyone! Krusteaz sent me some of their new products to test like the Molten Lava Cookies and Crumb Cake and I decided to make my own recipe with the two cookie boxes that I got. I liked chocolate and caramel and regular cookies with chocolate so I thought why couldn’t I combine the two in the bar together and add some peanut butter and chocolate chips to them? Crazy! The top part is like a brownie and the bottom is like a regular cookie, the best of both World’s!

These took a little bit longer to bake in the oven than I thought it would being a double layer of cookie dough. I kept on testing the cookie batter with a tooth pick to see if it was clean and keeping track of the time it took to cook them. About 50 minutes at 350 degrees to bake. This is using two cookie batters after all. I love taking boxed mixes and seeing what I can come up! Once these cookie bars are done with I’m headed straight for the lemon bars!
