“Trix are for Treats”

“Silly Rabbit, Trix are for Kids” … well they aren’t just for kids today!

The Slogan for this post is now “Silly Baker, Trix are for [Rice Crispy] Treats”

Many of us grew up on Rice Crispy Treats (if not at home often then we craved them on the rare occasion that we did get them). There is just something magical about the sugary sticky mess with a crunch that the cereal and the marshmallow create. With these Crispy Treats we take that sugar-overload to the next level as we use Trix instead of Rice Crispies for not only more sweetness but also a super fun burst of color!

Strawberry Chocolate Pudding Ice Pops

There’s always room for Jello (Pudding Pops)!

Growing up my mom always used her Tupperware Ice Pop Molds to make me fresh Ice-Pops all summer long! When I moved into my own house, mom figured she would not be making many more pops (until at least she had grand kids to make them for) so she gave me her molds, yay! One of my favorite (and easiest) ice pops always were Pudding Pops (which I also found out were also Rich’s favorite type when he was growing up – I love being able to make my PA Wedding Photographer Fiance happy).

Basically all that needs to get done for the Perfect Pudding Pops is to start out by making your favorite Pudding (instant or homemade or cooked). Then you just need to pour that pudding into your pop mold of choice (store-bought or ice cube trays, or silicone molds, or paper cups), and then freeze them up for a few hours.

After Strawberry Picking last week I knew that some Chocolate Covered Strawberry flavored Ice Pops would be amazing. So taking my love of Pudding Pops and then just adding some fresh Strawberries to the mix equaled these delicious Chocolate Covered Strawberry Pudding Pops!

Chocolate Covered Marshmallows – “Smore’s Pops”

We love S’mores around here! One of the great joys of the summer is relaxing around a campfire just hanging out with friends. While enjoying that fire – marshmallows toasted (or burnt) to perfection are just right! After enjoying that fire you come inside to head to bed and realize that you now smell like you’ve been camping all week.

Well -FEAR NO MORE… I have your Smoke-Free-S’mores here!

Mini Oreo Cheesecakes

Cheesecake: (noun) a dessert which is usually sweetened, can be baked, and is often decadent, usually served as slices from a larger cake and deliciously rich. These cheesecakes are made individually so you have some portion control in addition to all of that original delicious richness of your classic cheesecake (combined with the “kid-in-you” taste of Oreos)!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cake

“The Way to a Man’s Heart is Through his Stomach”

The man that I love just happens to also love Cookie Dough. When I came across Something Shiny’s Cookie Dough Cake, I knew that I had no other choice but to make this for him. In the past I have surprised Rich with Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes, also nice batches of Raw (with egg) Cookie Dough to make him smile, and even Cookie Dough Truffles for Holidays! This cake I knew would be a big hit – even if it meant many hours of preparation going into it (do not let the long list scare you off – it is worth every second you will spend working on it)!

Rich knew that he was getting some sort of baked goodie for Valentines Day this year, but I do not think that he expected this. We started this evening out with some wine and cheese and meats that I had picked up to hold him over until I could finish making the cake and then make dinner, and the evening of food was one that we totally enjoyed – especially with this cake ending the whole night. People may tell you that you need to spend lots of money to make people happy but I know that the best gifts come from the heart (and go to the stomach?).

Before reading any further please promise me that you will not worry about your diet for just a little bit – happiness is what you make it 🙂
