Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip - What Megans Making - StumbleUpon. Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip It’s time for a little confession. I realize this may get me shunned (especially in my hometown of Pittsburgh!) , but….I don’t like football. I don’t like to watch it, I never liked playing football with my friends, I don’t even like playing catch with a football. If there was one thing Mike could change about me, I’m pretty sure this would be it. That being said, I will watch the Superbowl. I like the party atmosphere, I like that the Steelers are playing, but most of all, I like the food. I saw this recipe on Jessica’s blog and made it the very next day.

Christmas Cookies. 22 Beautiful Uses For Vaseline | beautifulwithbrains.com - StumbleUpon. Death By Oreo Cupcakes. They are probably the best Oreo cakes I have ever tried. A lot of cake's that I have experimented with before are like a vanilla cake with bits of Oreo in them, which didn't really give them enough Oreo flavor. But these were a lot better. I used a dark chocolate fudge cake mix instead of just a regular chocolate cake mix, which went really well with the cookies and gave the cakes just a little more flavor.

So, in this recipe there is Oreo's in the cake, in the frosting, and at the bottom is a Oreo surprise. That's right, you put a whole Oreo at the bottom of the cake. The cookie stays firm, which makes it a little interesting to eat against the soft cake, but it actually gave a really yummy crunch. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

How To Make Perfect Brownies | How To Cook Like Your Grandmother. I’ve tried lots of brownie recipes: Boxes, scratch, frosted, plain, nuts, chips, fudge … Each of them has something to like, but depending on my mood I might want a change of pace. Not any more.

It’s swirled with piles of grated provolone and spicy pepperoni and a nice little mixture of Italian seasoning [...that came out of a tube].

Yeah. We all do it. The bad news is that it disappeared. Like… all of it. At best I could dig the foil out of the trash for you that enveloped this loaf for a full 13 minutes before complete domination took over. See, bread if my favorite thing to make. I want to dive headfirst into this pepperoni roll on steroids and doggy paddle through every cheesy swirl. Pizza Swirl Bread [adapted from martha stewart.com] makes one loaf 4 tablespoons butter 1/3 cup milk 1/4 cup warm water 2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast 1 teaspoon sugar 1 large egg 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour 1/2 teaspoon salt 2 garlic cloves, minced 6 ounces provolone cheese, freshly grated 4 ounces grated parmesan cheese 20-30 slices pepperoni, or however much you would like 1/3 cup tomato sauce, or more if desired 1. Cake Batter & Sprinkle Bark.

I think I’ve found my sugar & sprinkles soul sister recently. I really do. The funny thing is, I had popped by Jessica’s blog from time to time when I would spot her yummy treats linked by friends on twitter, but I didn’t really get a chance to sit down and really take a good long look through her recipes until this past week. That’s when I came across the sprinkled masterpiece of epic proportion: her cake batter chocolate bark. Much like Jessica, I wasn’t what I’d really consider a “bark person” until this recipe came along, but what’s so fabulous about it, aside from the obvious delightfulness, is that it took me 5 minutes active time to make this (and about 5 to eat it–whoops). That’s the incredible thing about this, and about bark recipes in general: you take existing chocolate (of any kind, but the better the chocolate, the better it will be, since it’s really the only ingredient), melt it down, spread it out, add some bits & bites of yumminess, set it, break it and . . . ta-da!
