Make Ahead recipes, coconut snowball with hot fudge sauce, Dessert that LOOKS fancy but you can make it in about 15 seconds, Ice Cream Recipe, Breyers #MoreTreats #AdCoconut Snowball with Hot Fudge Sauce

 I Love to stock up on deals like this and stock the freezer. These Coconut Snowballs with Hot Fudge Sauce are one of my families favorites.  The best part is you can make them days BEFORE the party, and  then just grab a frozen snowball and top with hot fudge and a strawberry for a FAST and easy dessert that looks so elegant.  I show you how to make them in the video below, be sure and check it out.

Start by first toasting 2 cups of flake coconut in the oven or in a skillet on the stove on medium/ high heat.  Stir continually so it does not burn. Take off heat and allow to cool.  Scoop balls of Breyers vanilla ice cream into your hands and form a ball. Roll the ball into the toasted coconut. Set on a plate, cover will plastic wrap and put back in freezer to harden up. Once you are ready to serve put on serving dish, drizzle with hot fudge and top with your choice of fresh fruit, we will strawberries. Boom… your done and you have a rockin awesome dessert :).

On a personal note… WHAT is up with my hair in this video YIKES lol.

Baked Caramel Apple Waffles with Crumb Topping Recipe

Baked Caramel Apple Waffles with Crumb Topping

Baked Caramel Apple Waffles with Crumb Topping 

This recipe was totally inspired by Paula Dean. She has a recipe for a killer, Baked French Toast Casserole with Maple Syrup. This is where the inspiration came from. Thank you darlin’! She’s one of my foodie heroes. I love the woman. She reminds me of the women in my family, on my dads side. One day I would like to meet her. Yeah, it’s on my bucket list. :)

This dish could easily pass for breakfast or dessert. If serving for dessert, may I suggest a la mode style?! Bring. It. On. Baaaby. Whoops, forgot for a moment I was watching my calories. :(

Don’t let the ingredients list/directions fool you, this was easily put together!

Ingredients

  • Non-stick cooking spray
  • 2 boxes (11.6 oz.) each Eggo thick & fluffy – cinnamon brown sugar waffles
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup 1% milk
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • pinch of allspice
  • sprinkle of salt

Caramel Apple Topping

  • 3 large granny smith apples, peeled, cored and diced
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/2 cup butterscotch caramel topping + extra for drizzling the crumb topping.

Crumb Topping

  • 1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup salted butter

Directions

  1. Spray a 3 qt. baking dish with non-stick cooking spray, set aside.
  2. Arrange 10 Eggo waffles in your baking dish, in two rows, overlapping each one. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs,  1 1/2 cups heavy cream, 1/2 cup 1% milk, 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract, 1 tablespoon sugar, 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg, pinch of allspice, sprinkle of salt. Pour this mixture over the waffles, making sure that each waffle is covered evenly. If needed spoon some of the mixture into the waffle indentations. Cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours or until the waffles soak up most of the milk/egg mixture. You may have a bit of the milk/egg mixture left over in the bottom of the baking dish, this is okay.
  3. Using the same large bowl that you used for the milk/egg mixture let’s make the caramel apple topping by combining diced apples, 1/3 cup sugar, 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg, 1/4 teaspoon allspice and 1/2 cup butterscotch caramel topping; stir. Set aside.
  4. Once waffles have absorbed most of the milk/egg mixture, remove from the refrigerator. Spread caramel apple topping over the waffles.
  5. Let’s make the crumb topping. In the same large bowl, combine 1 cup flour, 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup salted butter, mix together with a fork or pastry blender to make pea sized crumbles. Top caramel apple topping with crumb topping. Bake in a preheated 350 degree F. oven for 45 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven and drizzle generously with butterscotch caramel topping. Serve as is or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top.

Kindergarten Graduation Snacks ~ Healthy and Fun!

Do you have a kindergartener this year?  I do, and wanted to provide a snack for his graduation party.  I don’t know about your child’s class, but I think most of them get plenty of sugary treats during their parties!  That is fine, but why not have something cute, and at least somewhat healthy too?!

You will need:

Fruit cups or applesauce cups

4×4 inch card stock squares (1 per cup)

googly eyes

glue stick

Sharpie (optional)

bakers twine, thin strips of paper, or ribbon

kindergarten graduation snacks ~ healthy and fun, #healthysnacks, #easysnacks, #graduation, #kindergarten, #graduationsnack, #easycrafts, #easysnacks

Begin by cutting your squares of paper into 4×4 squares.

Then, Turn your fruit cup upside down and glue the square to the bottom of the cup.  The thin plastic to open it should now be on the bottom.  Once that is glued onto the bottom of the cup, glue the googly eyes.  I found they stayed on fine with normal glue stick, but if your fruit cup is textured or more round then mine, a hot glue gun may work better.  Glue the eyes on and draw a face with your sharpie if you desire.

Now, cut three strips (per cup) of bakers twine, ribbon, or even of paper.  Tie them in a small knot at the top and glue them to the top of your graduation cap. (The square you glued on first)

Feel free to write something on the top, or leave it plain!  Would work for any graduate.  Would also make a fun addition to a gift basket of supplies for the high school graduate that is headed to college.  I provided some links above for the products on Amazon, why not order them now and be ready to make them when the time comes?

Healthy Homemade Avocado Lemon Salad Dressing Recipe, with Lemon cilantro garlic and honey, great on any salad perfect for spring and summer menu plans
Healthy Homemade Avocado Lemon Salad Dressing Recipe
We are finally having some beautiful spring weather here. When we have nice weather I eat a lot more salad.  I tend to eat the same salad combos but like to mix it up with different salad dressings.   This smooth and creamy avocado dressing is pretty amazing. I like it on green salad, pasta salad or even a corn and bean salad. Hope you enjoy it too.
Ingredients:
  • 1/2 Avocado
  • Juice from 1 lemon
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 a clove garlic
  • 1/4 cup cilantro
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar (red wine vinegar works too)
  • 3 Tbsp honey
  • salt/pepper to taste
Blend everything in a blender or food processor  until smooth and creamy. Add just a bit of water if you would like the dressing a little thinner. I do! Then adjust the salt.
This makes about 1/2 cup or so (give or take). Depends if you like it a little thicker or not. It should last 2-3 days in the fridge – the flavor changes a bit.  Of course you can double the recipe and adjust it to your taste if you tend to like it more or less with the acidity of the lemon/vinegar.
