COOKING IS DANDY WITH SANDY – HOMEMADE CHOCOLATE BANANA SPLIT ICE CREAM – NO DAIRY/ NO SUGAR ADDED

6 Jul

I found this great recipe on NK for Raw Chocolate Banana Split Ice Cream

It’s gluten free, dairy/soy free and has no added sugar

Perfect alternative for those (like myself) with food sensitivities or dietary restrictions

Makes 2 servings

RECIPE

 

  • 2 frozen bananas (peel them before freezing)
  • 1/4 cup almond, rice or coconut milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract or 1/2 scoop vanilla bean
  • 2 -3 pitted dates (make sure to take pits out before mixing in blender!)
  • 2 tablespoons raw cacao or cocoa powder
  • chopped nuts to sprinkle on top

Mix all ingredients (except chopped nuts) together in a blender until blended well.  Pour into a glass bowl and place in the freezer for at least 30 minutes. Remove from freezer and scoop into bowls.  Sprinkle with chopped nuts.

 

Some of the ingredients I used

(I added a dash of cinnamon)

My ice cream…YUMMY!!!

Even my 3 year old ♥ it

Thanks NK!!

PARTY TIME!!!!

30 Mar

This past week has been a very busy week for me

I have 2 daughters and they have back to back bdays

Today was my youngest’s bday and my eldest had her bday 4 days ago

So I’ve been running around all week like a chicken with my head chopped off trying to get everything ready for this double bday party

AHHHH!!!!

We’re doing a CANDYLAND themed party

That means TONS of candy and candy themed decorations

There are quite a few projects that I’ve taken on to make this a true candyland party

With only a few days left, I’m starting to think I’ve bitten off more than I can chew!!

Here’s a few of the things I’ve made/done so far

(These are not the actual items I made. I found these pics on pinterest & did my own version of these for our party…will post actual pics afterwards)

chocolate tree

candy table centerpieces

(I added some more items to mine)

Needless to say, I have done very little coupon shopping this week (except to buy some candy lol)

I’ll post pics of the party decor some time next week

No bake Christmas Cookies—less than 10 minutes! Chocolate covered peanut butter Ritz cookies

20 Dec

My kiddo and I have been baking cookies for the grandparents every year since she was 5 years old. She absolutely loves it because every year we try to make a new kind of cookie BUT we also make one cookie recipe each year because it’s just soooo yummy and super easy to make!! It’s our Chocolate covered peanut butter Ritz cookies!! And now is a perfect time to make these since we got those $1/2 and B2G1 free Nabisco coupons and can pair it with the $1.88 Ritz sale at Kmart this week (or PM @ Wally’s)…making them only 92¢ a box wyb 3!!

Ingredients/Utensils:

1 16 oz box Ritz crackers

1 jar of your favorite creamy peanut butter

1 package (24 oz) melting chocolate ( I use Plymouth Pantry but you can use Wilton or your favorite brand)

1 bowl

1 spoon

1 butter knife or piping bag

wax paper

cookie sheet

 

Directions:

  1. Cut off enough wax paper to place over your cookie sheet
  2. Lay out 1 pkg of Ritz crackers on your cookie sheet (there should be 4 pkgs of ritz crackers per box)
  3. Spread peanut butter on every other cracker with a butter knife or place the peanut butter in a piping bag or freezer/storage bag and pipe out the peanut butter on the cracker (great way to do a lot of cookies at once)
  4. Take the crackers that don’t have peanut butter and place them over the ones that do and set cookie sheet aside for now
  5. Break off a column of chocolate (3 squares) and place it in a microwaveable bowl
  6. Place it in the microwave for 60 seconds and stir with spoon. If the chocolate is not completely melted, continue to heat in the microwave in 15 second intervals and stir each time. Continue to do so until completely melted
  7. Take your cookie sheet full of peanut butter Ritz cracker cookies and place it next to your dipping chocolate bowl
  8. Take one cookie and drop it into your chocolate and cover it completely (use spoon) like so:

(sorry, I know it just looks like a bowl of melted chocolate, but there is a cookie in there! LOL)

     9. Using your spoon or fingers (wash those hands hehe) take the cookie out and let the excess chocolate drip down. Then place back on your cookie sheet.

     10. At this point, you can add toppings to your cookies if you’d like. I like to add peanuts or almonds. Prior years I’ve purchased white/green/red melting chocolate as well and have drizzled that over the top…they come out looking very pretty and festive for the holiday 🙂 My daughter likes to use colorful sprinkles too…the choices are endless!

     11. Repeat steps 7-10 until all your cookies are done and then place the cookie sheet in the fridge for about 5 minutes to allow the chocolate to harden

     12. Take out of the fridge and take the cookies off the waxed paper, one at a time. If there’s some excess chocolate on the sides of the cookie, just trim it off with a butter knife or pull it off with your fingers (this is how we do it lol). Then place your cookies in a cute Christmas cookie tin to give as a gift or enjoy them right away with the kiddos!

Here’s our first batch (bad pic taken from my cell phone)

We added almonds on top of some but I also bought white chocolate so I plan

to drizzle some of that on our second batch 🙂

Remember that there are so many ways to dress these simple cookies up!

You can dip them in green/red melting chocolate (found at Michaels or any cake supply store) and

drizzle them with white/milk chocolate. You can also add sprinkles, nuts, coconut flakes….

Hope you enjoy these as much as we do!!!

KIDDOS BORED? TRY MAKING PEANUT BUTTER CUP CRAYONS!

23 Jul

As you might already know from previous posts, my 10 year old kiddo can’t wait to go back to school. Just yesterday she was telling me how bored she was and that there was nothing to do…HA! I’m sure a couple of household chores can change that, LOL

But of course it can get boring at home after 2 months and it’s not always easy for parents to come up with new and exciting things for the kiddos to do each and every day!

Yesterday while I was looking at all the cute handmade items on etsy.com, I came across these really cute cupcake crayons made of melted down old crayons. Now that’s really cool! My daughter has a ton of broken crayons that she no longer uses.

So the next day I helped my daughter make some of these cupcake crayons and let me tell you, they were super easy to make!

First we grabbed all the broken crayons she had and peeled off the wrappers. Then we broke the bigger pieces into smaller pieces and separated them by color (or you could make rainbow cupcakes).

Next we grabbed a muffin/cupcake pan and some cupcake liners, placed the liners in the pan and then filled each liner with crayons (about half full).

I set the oven to 300° and placed the pan inside for 8 min (or until melted). I then took them out and allowed them to cool down. Once cool, my daughter removed them from the liners and had a blast coloring with her new cupcake crayons!

We made one that was made of all brown crayons and it came out resembling a yummy reese’s peanut butter cup! It got me thinking that it would make a really cute gift wrapped in cellophane with a tag around it stating, “Peanut Butter Cup Crayon”. It would also make a great goody bag toy in a candy themed birthday party (HINT HINT to what I’m doing for my girls’ b-day next year lol)

Disclaimer: Only adults should do the baking and handling of the hot contents. I am NOT responsible for injury, illness or death as a result of preparing this recipe…Sorry, but I have to throw this in here since now a days everything seems to need a disclaimer.
