Desserts…aaaah, the best part of the meal. 🙂 Well, they were when I was younger.
These days, sweet endings aren’t the status quo, therefore, when I do indulge, they best be special treats! (or, at least, ones that are worth the extra minutes required on the elliptical! 😉 )
Good thing I love to bake since pre-packaged cookies and snack cakes aren’t welcome in our cupboards (too many ingredients born out of a chemistry lab than a kitchen).
First up, one of my favorites…Cream Cheese Marble Brownies. Layers of dark chewy chocolate brownies dotted with chocolate chips and topped with ribbons of sweetened cream cheese. No sissy portions here but a nice generous square to be washed down with ice cold milk (of course).
This next one may look like a pre-packaged item but I assure you, it isn’t.
Inspired by my favorite childhood snack cake, Hostess Ho Hos, these chocolate-covered, cream-filled rolls are beyond tasty! I’ve also made them with chocolate cake (like the original) but discovered that when you only have a yellow boxed cake mix in the pantry, you simply have to rollwith it! 😉
Not all our treats come from my oven.
The perfect combination of salty and sweet, Late Night Snack is ‘Vanilla Bean Ice Cream with a Salty Caramel Swirl & Fudge Covered Potato Chip Clusters.’
Yes, folks, you read that correctly: Fudge. Covered. Potato. Chip. Clusters. Genius!
For a limited time only, so run out to your local grocer and scoop up a pint! 😉

I didn’t sample these Mickey Mouse sundaes but they were simply too adorable(and too colorful) to pass up! 🙂
