Marshmallow Filled Chocolate Cake With Chocolate Syrup Icing

Have you ever heard of making frosting with chocolate syrup?  Well me neither!  I thought that stuff was only good for making a cool glass of chocolate milk.  Well surprise surprise, it makes for a delicious chocolate frosting!  Probably one of the best chocolate icings I’ve tasted in a long time.

And use it to top a chocolate cake with a marshmallow middle and you’ve got a real slice of heaven on a plate.  But be warned your sweet tooth will be screaming after one small piece.  A little goes a very long way, even for hubs who can normally suck down sugar like it’s water!

I was a bit disappointed by the marshmallow filling though.  Maybe my expectations were a bit high but I thought it would be more creamy and have more of a marshmallow taste.  Don’t get me wrong it’s still a delicious icing.  I guess maybe I expected something more like the filling you find in a hostess cupcake.  But then again, that would make for a very messy cake! 😮

It’s As Simple As Apple Crisp!

Since this past weekend was the 4th of July, I was feeling a bit patriotic.  And what’s more American than apple pie?  But of course apple pie is a lot of work to make.  So naturally, I took the easy way out and made apple crisp instead!

Basically you get the same flavors as apple pie but without the yummy pie crust.  But that’s OK, I rather like the oat topping myself.  And since hubs won’t eat apple pie, it really doesn’t make sense for me to make a whole apple pie to eat by myself.  Now that’s just darn right piggish!

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

I’m always looking through my pantry to see what goodies I can come up with without going to the store.  A bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips caught my eye this time.

At first I was going to just make chocolate chip ice cream but I kinda think that’s boring.  Chocolate chips just don’t do that much to vanilla ice cream in my opinion.  So instead, I wanted to do chocolate ice cream with chocolate chips in it.

I went in search of just the right recipe and came to choose one from the Nestle kitchens.  It’s an easy recipe that only takes a few minutes prep time before putting into your ice cream machine.  The end result is a nice and sweet creamy chocolate ice cream dotted with chocolate chips.

Tangy BBQ Shredded Chicken Pitas

Ever since I started making my own homemade barbecue sauce I’ve become kinda obsessed.  I’ve made it my mission to try every different barbecue sauce recipe that I come across.  And I am so glad I came across this bbq recipe.

This bbq sauce is by far the most delicious I have ever had.  It is better than all my previous barbecue sauce recipes and any bottled version I’ve ever bought.  It is so good I swear I could slather it on just about anything and it would be edible.  Just thinking about it is making my mouth water.

I love this bbq sauce so much because of its intense flavors.  It’s like a flavor party in your mouth.  A little sweet, a bit spicy and so very tangy.  If you’re looking for something bland and boring, then this is not for you.
