You’re welcome, Internet. Here is finally a Dole Whips recipe that seriously tastes identical to Disney theme parks. This doesn’t have “bananas”, “coconut milk”, or “cool whip” like the craziness I keep finding online. Whhhhhyyyy?? Have they not been to Disney World or Disney Land? There are dozens of these recipes on Pinterest and I have yet to find one that uses legit ingredients that will capture the true essence of the Dole Whips.
FYI – There. Are. No. Bananas in the Disney version! GET IT TOGETHER!!
Soft serve ice cream is super easy to make at home with this shortcut! The DQ Peanut Buster Parfait is the ultimate combination of salty and sweet using just three simple ingredients. Hot fudge chocolate layers and freshly shelled roasted peanuts are nestled in between creamy ice cream. Read More
A soft honey cookie is the unique base on my version of s’mores! These are chewy, gooey, messy and AMAZING! Great for a no-frills crowd, kids, or just you! 🙂 Serve them rustic style, straight on the pan so each person can pull off their own cookies. Read More

Super chewy, pillowy soft, thick sugar cookie crust is the base of this beautiful short-cut dessert, converting store-bought vanilla ice cream to a white chocolate strawberry and blueberry dream. This is the ultimate dessert for the summer.
Forth of July party, picnic, family gathering, whatever the occasion this summer, ice cream pie can always be your answer. It’s so universal and can be made in many ways. It’s always a crowd pleaser and is super easy to make – not requiring any ice cream machine, because you are just elevating store bought ice cream (of course if you want extra credit you can make your own ice cream – I am all about that life).
Do you like Tagalong Girl Scout Cookies and Buckeye Peanut Butter Balls? These two worlds may have just collided here and I am really excited to share this recipe with my fellow peanut butter & chocolate lovers.
Baker beware, these cookies are not for the faint of heart. Some may say this is too peanut buttery, too chocolatey, too rich. I say – you can never have enough of either, so I consider that a compliment! Read More
I have always had a weird love for espresso and peanut butter paired together in recipes. It’s a strange sounding combination, and when I add peanut butter to a mocha smoothie or espresso to a peanut butter smoothie, usually the worker confirms my order thinking they misunderstood what I asked for. Have you ever had an adffogato with peanut butter and chocolate ice cream? It’s an incredible combination. Read More
I came across an article about Balaboosta’s Bakery in East Norwich, NY and I was immediately fixated on these brownie stuffed chocolate chip cookies they are famous for. They looked ridiculously amazing, better than the ones I have created here. They are the masters of stuffing brownies into cookies.
Now I don’t claim that these will be as perfect, but since I am not hopping on a plane and flying to NY anytime soon, I just had to attempt to create a second-best option! These are outstanding. By far the best cookie I have ever eaten, and I don’t say that lightly. It really merges two of the best desserts into one cookie, and better than “brookies”, because the brownie is on the inside, it stays slightly under-done, creating one phenomenal cookie.
“Everyone’s Got A Favorite” Entenmann’s and mine is the Devil’s Food Donuts!
Since this is one of my first posts since I took a three month wedding/honeymoon/moving apartments hiatus from my blog, I figured it was appropriate for my comeback recipe to be recreating a very special memory from my time on my honeymoon with my new husband. A chocolate, store-bought donut. Yes, it’s the little things 🙂 Read More
