Chocolate, Strawberries & Cream Dessert



  

Have you ever seen those strawberries that are filled with cream and then dipped in chocolate?  They look so good!  I didn't have time to make them so I decided to come up with a dessert that had the same flavor combination without all the work.  This is so simple to put together and it definitely hit the spot!

Tandy Tarts





Half of our family likes Tandy Cake while the other half say they don't care for it.  So I decided to make the recipe, but instead of a cake, I made them into tarts!  I made a light and airy sponge cake and the peanut butter topping has a little butter, vanilla and sugar to kick it up a notch.  Then I drizzled on some chocolate to make them complete!  Even the ones that said they didn't care for Tandy Cake ate these in no time at all!

Yummy Mall Pretzels!




My kids love the pretzels from the mall.  So when I saw this recipe on Allrecipes I knew I had to give it a try.  They turned out delicious!  I was really surprised at how easy they came together, but even more surprised at how much they tasted just like the ones from the mall.  Now we can have them whenever we want...which they're already asking for more!

Cinnamon Roll Coffee Cake



Lately I've seen quite a few recipes for cinnamon roll cake and honey bun cake.  I made one that was made from scratch and one that was made with a cake mix. They were good, however  I like cinnamon rolls to be on the dense side (you know, that gooey center) and that's the kind of cake I wanted to replicate.  So this cake is a little dense (that's why I called it a coffee cake),  it has great cinnamon roll flavor and the perfect icing to top it off!

Banana Cream Pudding

 


If you need a dessert that feeds a crowd and is simple to make then this is the one to try!  This has cookies in it and I'm not crazy about soggy cookies.  So to not have that happen, I sneak in a little bit of banana cream pudding mix.  This enhances the banana flavor and there are no soggy cookies from sitting so long.   I usually leave ours in the fridge for about two hours and that seems perfect for us.  If you want softer cookies then let it set up longer. The longer it sits, the softer the cookies!
