This frosting sort of happened by mistake, and sometimes those are the best. I made a batch of rice krispies treats on Friday night with the intention of making a totally separate dessert; a dessert which did not work out at all. Since I made my Seven Layer Bar Frosting, I was have racking my brain to think of different types of chunky frostings. I stared at the pan and decided I would try a Rice Krispies Treats Frosting.
The results? Kind of mind blowing. I think there are two ways you could do this. You could either start with a marshmallow frosting and add rice krispies cereal or you can do what I did, and make a vanilla frosting and add the rice krispies treats to the frosting. I really like the crunchiness of this frosting. Continue reading
Ever since I discovered root beer extract I have been dying to make these cupcakes. Root beer is reminiscent of summer to me. I love root beer but I don’t drink it often because of the added calories. Last week at the lake I enjoyed several thirst-quenching bottles. For lunch we would hop in the boat and drive across the lake to a little restaurant/shop called Miller’s Landing. I indulged myself with Oreo milkshakes, chicken strips, French fries and root beer; not all at once of course.
Ah, vacation. Yes, I am on vacation for a whole week. This summer has been a busy one with lots of traveling but not really for vacation purposes; I don’t count weddings as vacation. So yeah. I am at the lake for a week trying to bronze my embarrassingly white legs, wakeboarding and eating of course. Speaking of eating, how about some cupcakes?
Perhaps one of the best summer treats is a slice of pie with a big ol scoop of ice cream. Today I combined two of my favorite desserts: pie and cupcakes. These are Lemon Blueberry Pie Cupcakes with a oatmeal crust crumble. I mean, the best part of the pie is the crust for me so I couldn’t forget that.
The lemon cupcakes contain an extra bag of lemon pudding mix for added flavor. Once cooled, the blueberry pie filling is added to the middle and topped with a lemon infused cream cheese frosting. I sprinkled it with the oatmeal crumble. Lemon and blueberry is such a great combination. The sweetness of the blueberry and tartness on the lemon balance each other out. For this recipe, I chose to use canned Lucky Leaf blueberry pie filling. Continue reading
I don’t know what I am more excited over: A. This is my 100th post! or B. that I have officially made one of the creamiest, chocolate peanut butter frostings ever! What makes this frosting so special? It uses Jif Whips Peanut butter and Chocolate flavor spread. I recently started seeing Jif Whips all over Instagram and I bought it immediately. It is a chocolate flavored peanut butter spread that is light and airy and pretty much the most addicting peanut butter I have ever tasted. You can literally see the air bubble holes whipped into this spread. So I made this frosting yesterday and knew I had to share it immediately. It is THAT good.
OH MY GOSH, I am kinda excited about this Seven Layer Frosting. I love cupcakes; I really believe that the frosting can make or break a cupcake. I was never a huge fan of frosting, until I started to make my own. I used to eat the cake all the way around and leave the frosting on my plate.
Well I was looking to try some new frosting recently.I have been on kind of a coconut and chocolate kick; see Pina Colada Cupcake or Chunky Monkey Layer Bars. I was inspired by high hat S’mores frosting and I wanted to try a different frosting with graham cracker mixed in. Continue reading
