Cookies N Cream Popsicles

Since summer is coming to an end, I decided that this was my last opportunity to make a frozen treat to cool me off these last few summer days.

I recently made some healthy fruity popsicles, and even though these probably aren’t as healthy, they are equally delicious!

Today’s recipe is on how to make Cookies N Cream Popsicles!

These Popsicles are made of Oreos (or any cream filled cookie), cool whip, a bit of sugar, and homemade almond milk.

Mother’s Day Chocolate Flower Pots

Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers everywhere! This year for Mother’s Day, I made a delicious treat that moms everywhere will love- chocolate flower pots!

Last year for Mother’s Day, I made a cupcake flower bouquet that was very cute and effective. This year I baked moist chocolate cake in little jars with chocolate flowers I made.

These desserts were very easy and simple and only needed a few things to make.

What I did first was bake chocolate cake batter in oven safe glass jars and for the dirt, I slathered on some Nutella (or you could also use chocolate frosting) and added crushed Oreos (or any chocolate cookies) on top.

Then, for the flowers, I melted several different colors of candy melts and poured the melted chocolate into Ziploc bags. I snipped the corner of the bag and piped different kinds of flowers on to some wax paper. For the stem, I used cake pop sticks dipped into green melted chocolate and after it was dried, I attached the stem to the back of the flowers using a bit of melted chocolate.

These treats aren’t just great for Mother’s Day, but for many other occasions and holidays!

Graduation Cake

Last thursday was a very exciting day for me.  I had to make a two layer chocolate cake with chocolate frosting for my friend’s highschool graduation. He requested an Oreo cake, but because I didn’t have an Oreo cake recipe on hand and I didn’t know if everybody would like it, I made a chocolate cake decorated with Oreos. And I knew everybody would like that because who doesn’t like chocolate? 🙂 For the recipe look below the pictures. 

Below are a couple of pictures:
