Fall is almost here and with that we are letting up on the fruit in the Poptails-a bit.

Time for a Mudslide…on a Stick

But what we are not letting up on is the booze. Get your mixing hands ready for this mudslide with a twist. We went and added a banana in the mix. The sweetness of the banana neutralizes any tang the vanilla yogurt body may have, and adds a bit of creaminess to the mixture. While we were at it, we also threw in some grated chocolate for added flavor and texture. There you have it, enjoy your Endless Simmer twist-up of the traditional mudslide, in a Poptail.

Peach Sangria Popsicles Recipe

It’s happened before (hello, Skinny Margarita Popsicles!) , and it’ll happen again thanks to this boozy fruit-filled recipe for Peach Sangria Popsicles. But when it comes to mixing alcohol with dessert, there’s one simple trick: Don’t overdo it on the sugar content of your cocktail. Booze + excess sugar = one seriously unsweet hangover. So I’ve skipped the added sugar altogether in this popsicle recipe and instead relied on a splash of peach juice and the natural sweetness of the fruit itself to balance out the dryness of the white wine.

S'mores Cake in a Jar

I realize that for some people this may cause a shocked reaction on par with my husband’s the time I told him I’ve never watched Goonies before (or Jacob’s, upon discovering the internet). Obviously I grew up under a rock, right?

Dark and Damp Molasses Cake. This is a cake that should come with a warning: Only proceed if you love molasses.

Dark and Damp Molasses Cake

If you do love molasses and its dark, bitter sweetness, then proceed immediately, and with haste. This cake is dark, fudgy, damp and rich. It's like a chocolate cake for people who don't like chocolate. I am one of those people who loves molasses even more than chocolate — I love how it balances sugar sweetness with bitterness and a cascade of funky sour notes. And yet I never feel that molasses desserts really show off what it can do. And so this cake was born. It is saved from being overly rich, however, with that little edge of bitterness that comes at the the end of every bite, sending you back for another. If this sounds good to you, please try it and let me know what you think. One last note, an essential one: The frosting is an integral part of this cake. So, there you have it, molasses-lovers.
