You are going to want to go out to your kitchen and make this as soon as you can. Peanut butter cookies layered in creamy pudding and topped with chocolate frosting is dessert perfection. The only down side is that it needs to be made 24 hours before you plan to eat it. But don’t worry, while it sits in the fridge not only do the cookies soften, but all the calories disappear too. Really. I wouldn’t lead you astray.
When my sister and I were teens, we used to make these crepes together. I’m not sure where we found the recipe. It could be that we brought it home from French class. If so, that’s about the only thing I brought home from French class. The language lessons didn’t stick nearly as well as the memory of these crepes!
I hadn’t made them in years, partly due to the fact that I didn’t own a non-stick skillet. I finally broke down and bought one last week. It’s just a basic 10.5” WearEver brand. The next day I picked up a copy of Kitchen Wisdom by Julia Child from the library. The book is excellent and it really made me happy to see her recommend a basic non-stick skillet from WearEver, “available in any hardware store” as she put it.
The first bite I took of this dessert tasted good. The next bite made me want to take another and another. The more I ate, the more I enjoyed the combination of juicy peaches and sweet cream filling with the crunch of the crust.
This is adapted from Tina’s recipe for Strawberry Delight on her blog, Mommy’s Kitchen. I used peaches instead of berries and frozen whipped topping instead of dream whip.
These are so, very good. Of course, anything topped with cream cheese frosting is delicious. An online friend shared the recipe with me. I’m not sure where she found it. She says that it freezes well too, which is nice because it makes a big pan. My family had no trouble eating them all though. [Read more…] about Frosted Banana Bars
I decided to make up a batch of homemade hot cocoa mix the other day. My mom always made this when my sister and I were little, but it had been a long time since I’d made any. I still have some Swiss Miss packets in the pantry, but the kids have been choosing this over the store-bought kind.
It’s really easy to make and you get a lot of mix with one batch. Here’s what you’ll need: [Read more…] about Homemade Hot Cocoa Mix
