#Recipe of the Day: Marscapone Cheesecake! MMMmmm!

I am a huge fan of cheesecake! It is actually one of the few sweets I will eat (and eat and eat) until I can’t button my pants! haha! I am equally in love with Marscapone! I can only imagine how delicious this great recipe from Taste of Home actually tastes! A plate with three slices of these for me please (right now!!)!!!



#Recipe of the Day: Reeses Peanut Butter Cake!

My oh my! This has got to be heaven! Reeses is my all time favorite candy bar! I wonder if someone could figure out a way to do a Reeses White Chocolate Cake?!?! That would be the money! This cake though…to all that know me that read this blog…this is THE cake I want baked for my next birthday *wink*wink* !!!! You can find the full recipe over on Dulce Dough!


Sweet Treat: Decadent English Toffee #Cupcake #Recipe

oh man, this sounds heavenly! I would love to have one of these cupcakes with a hot cup of coffee right now! This recipe is by Krisztina Williams of KrisztinaWilliams.com! It is very beautifully decorated! This recipe is very simple b/c it uses store bought cake mix and store bought frosting but, any seasoned cupcake baker can easily turn this into a gourmet treat by making the cake and frosting from scratch! I would do a ganache topping and fill these babies with some fudge syrupy goodness!! However, store bought mix and frosting is not a bad thing if you are on a budget and it is very easy to doctor up cake mixes! *Hint* Add a bit of Choco Pudding to the batter* Core your cupcake after it is baked and squirt some Hersheys Choco Syrup in the middle!*

Either way ..I want this in my mouth right now!


My Sweet Soiree: Birthday Cake #Oreo + Strawberry Jam Creamsicle #Recipe!

This treat is truly heavenly! It actually reminds me a bit of strawberry cheesecake! The picture just doesn’t do it justice! I made these creamsicles this evening! I checked the freezer every 30 minutes in hopes they were set so I could try them!! These treats are so easy to make! Any one can do it! I used plastic popsicle molds but, in the future I think I will use small glasses or shot glasses with wooden popsicle sticks! The plastic molds will do but, i think the glass will really make them uniform and will also make it very easy to get out of the mold!

Here is what you need!

1 cup of whipped topping

2/3 cup of heavy cream

1 Tablespoon of Sugar

8 birthday cake oreos crumbled up (icing and all)

2 generous tablespoons of strawberry jam

extra crumbled oreo cookies to make a crumb coating

All you do is mix it all up in a bowl (in no particular order) and pour it into the molds! I did some layering but it is not necessary! the creamsicles that I did not layer actually came out a lot nicer! I was able to make 10 creamsicles in my fairly large molds with this recipe and I have enough left over from the ingredients i bought to make 10 more! Let them set in the freezer for an hour before adding the popsicle sticks then keep them in the freezer for at least another 2 hours (but, i honestly would recommend longer or even letting them freeze overnight!) I added the crumb coating after i pulled them out of the mold (kind of like you do with cupcakes) it added a nice and needed crunch to the creamsicles! I can’t wait to try another variation of this ice cream treat soon! I am thinking a lemon blueberry!
