Round-Up Wednesday (October 14, 2015)
I’ve got a little bit of a sweet tooth. Ok, a lot of a sweet tooth. Which #NationalDessertDay is testing my self-restraint and I’m telling myself I don’t *need* to make one of these. Don’t we always *need* dessert? These are the six recipes I’ve been dying to try and I may just have to pull out the mixer this evening and whip up one. Now which one.
Recipes for Chocolate Lovers
There are fruit people and chocolate people. I’m a chocolate girl. Some may say there’s a thing as too much chocolate? I say, Never! In my book the more chocolate the better.
CHOCOLATE SALTED CARAMEL PRETZEL BROWNIES
Ice cream has the number one spot in my book for dessert, but brownies take a close second. These ooie-gooie brownies (my favorite type) topped with soft caramel and pretzels look like something worth getting a tummy ache for because you know that’s what is going to happen when you have more than one of these! This mouth-watering recipes comes from yammiesnoshery.com
MOLTEN CHOCOLATE LAVA CAKE
You know that moment when you need something chocolatey and you need it now. Well this cake brings that chocolatey goodness to you in less than 30 minutes-from start to finish. Say what? Plus, it looks like one of those deserts you spent hours on. Get the recipe at giverecipe.com
BEST EVER ICE CREAM
This post wouldn’t be complete without at least one ice cream recipe and this recipes looks like everything a homemade ice cream recipes should be:smooth, creamy and hinting of just the right amount of chocolate flavor. This oh so tempting recipe can be found at cupofjo.com
For Fruit Lovers
While chocolate is my go to, there are some fruit recipes I can’t pass up. Anything lemon, raspberry, or peach. And I’m a sucker for carrot cake.
MINI LEMON MERINGUE CHEESECAKES
Lemon+cheesecake+meringue+graham cracker crust and I might just be in heaven. If heaven tasted like lemons—and I kind of think it will. If you want a slice of heaven, head over to BakedByRachel.com
CINNAMON PEACH ICE CREAM
I know that it’s not longer peach season :( But next year, this recipes is going on my list. It looks like someone took the perfect peach cobbler and converted it to my favorite dessert medium. #bringbacksummer Recipe from ALittleClaireification.com
MY FAVORITE CARROT CAKE
I’m kind of a Carrot Cake snob. The best carrot cake in my opinion is moist, doesn’t have raisins, and the right ratio of frosting to cake and this cake promises to deliver on all accounts. I’m going to have to put this recipe from sallysbakingaddiction.com claims to the test soon.
