Pudding Cups. Wicked Good Chocolate Peanut Butter Pudding Cups.

Pudding Cups

They’re from the book, Sticky, Chewy, Messy, Gooey Treats for Kids by Jill O’Connor and just as good as their name states. Jill sent me and my niece a copy of her book as a little thank you for a post I did inspired by her Cheesecake Pops. We had a hard time deciding which recipe to try first, but we kept coming back to these pudding cups. They were really fun to make and even more fun to eat. You’ll see what I mean in a minute. From separating the egg yolks, to the measuring and mixing. She cooked the pudding. And mixed in the peanut butter… (thank you, Jill) … and the extra chocolate chips … Oh my! Let the pudding chill for at least four hours before eating. Here’s a link to the Pudding Recipe so you can print it out. Now, here’s the best part.

It involves balloons to make bowls. Okay, I did help a little bit here. After you blow up the balloons, wash them off and let them dry. Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Pudding. Okay, so I got a bit excited about jars and handheld pi es my last post.

Individual desserts. Homemade Buttermilk Doughnuts. Well, I told you earlier this week that when I made the Easy Homemade French Fries it was my first jump into the world of deep frying, and these doughnuts would be my second dip.

I have lost all fear of frying and am now on a furious search for the next thing to throw into a vat of bubbling oil (that doesn’t sound as delicious we all know the results truly are). I’m thinking maybe some classic southern fried chicken? I’ll continue to think on it, but in the meantime let’s chat about these amazing doughnuts. Doughnuts are something I’ve had on my mind for pretty much as long as I can remember, and they were definitely on my original Top 100 list. Once I decided to jump into the frying frenzy, I knew they would be one of the first things that I tried. In addition to the doughnuts, you get to partake in the resulting doughnut holes. The dough is really easy to mix together, you don’t even need to use a mixer. Then you get to cut! Two years ago: Butter Pecan Ice Cream. Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip.

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. I saw this recipe on Jessica’s blog and made it the very next day. *Note: Jessica also has variations of this dip on her blog.

On Wednesday, I wondered what would happen if you combined Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies with Oreo Stuffed Brownies.

Chocolate Chip Cookie n’ Oreo Fudge Brownie Bar

On Thursday I found out. And on Friday… I had this. This beautiful, ridiculous, indulgent, outrageous, illegal in 48 states, totally wonderful ultimate layered cookie and brownie treat. It is without a doubt, completely and utterly insane. But I mean that in a good way. These dangerously decadent chocolate chip cookie ‘n brownie bars combine the best of a gooey chocolate chip cookie, warm fudgy brownie, and an extra sweet double stuffed Oreo.

All you need is a basic chocolate chip cookie recipe (using a little less flour than you normally would), some double stuffed Oreos, a family-sized brownie mix for a 9×13 pan, and some hot fudge chocolate topping for good measure. Line a 9×13 baking dish with foil or parchment paper and spray with cooking spray. Whip up your cookie dough and spread it in the bottom of the pan.
