More Pumpkin Please!

21 Oct

Did I ever mention that I love pumpkin?  If not, please refer to my previous post Why I love Fall- Reason #1.

Also, words cannot describe how much I love ice cream.  For details on my ice cream obsession please refer to this post:  Ice Cream is a Girl’s Best Friend.

Now that you are well informed, you can imagine my excitement when I came across the best pumpkin pie ice cream in the world.
Ladies and Gentlemen, It is my pleasure to introduce….

I cannot take credit for this discovery.  My wonderful boyfriend, who also shares my obsession for food,  found this at the store and said that it is awesome.  And he was right….IT IS AWESOME.

The ice cream tastes exactly like pumpkin pie.  My absolute favorite part is the GIGANTIC layer of graham cracker crust in the middle.  Yes, I said GIGANTIC.  I can seriously eat this entire quart of ice cream all by myself and probably wouldn’t even feel guilty about it.

Go buy some.  You will not be disappointed.

Side note:  If anyone can find me Ben & Jerry’s Pumpkin Cheese Cake Ice Cream, I WILL LOVE YOU FOREVER…..AND EVER.

Warm Toasted Marshmallow S’more Bars

9 Jun

I’ve been collecting recipes on Pinterest for several weeks now.  It’s actually becoming sort of addicting.  Anyway,  I decided that I am going to try at least one recipe from my Pinterest collection every week, otherwise it makes no sense to just waste time pinning recipes all day like a weirdo with no life.  This weekend I decided to make Warm Toasted Marshmallow S’more Bars.  I LOVE S’mores.  If you don’t believe me, please refer to this post: I Effing Love S’mores.  Before you read any further, I would just like to point out a couple things.

1. I DO NOT bake.

and

2. I haven’t mastered the art of food photography yet so forgive the crappy pics.  Next time I will use my Nikon instead of my iPhone.

This is how they are SUPPOSED to look.

Warm Toasted Marshmallow S’more Bars

1 pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker® sugar cookie mix
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 cup butter or margarine, melted
3 cups milk chocolate chips (18 oz)
4 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows

1. Heat oven to 375°F. In large bowl, stir together cookie mix and crumbs. Stir in melted butter until soft dough forms. Press into ungreased 13×9-inch pan.

2. Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until set.

3. Immediately sprinkle chocolate chips over crust. Let stand 3 to 5 minutes or until chocolate begins to melt. Spread chocolate evenly over crust.

3. Set oven control to broil. Sprinkle marshmallows over melted chocolate. Broil with top 4 to 5 inches from heat 20 to 30 seconds or until marshmallows are toasted. (Watch closely; marshmallows will brown quickly.) Cool 10 minutes. For bars, cut into 6 rows by 4 rows. Serve warm. Store any remaining bars tightly covered.

These were pretty delicious although I have a few complaints.  I wish the crust was a little more “graham crackery”.  The next time I make them I will probably try a different graham cracker crust.  Also, it said to serve warm but when it is warm it does not come out in “bar” form like the pretty picture all the way at the top.  It actually comes out more like this:

Overall, for my first recipe I think it was a success.  They are kind of messy and hard to serve if you are having a party or something.  But they are very yummy so I would suggest that anyone who loves them some s’mores should try them!
