Oreo Ice Cream Cake Pots

Oreo Ice Cream Cake Pots

It seems as if we skipped over spring and jumped right into summer here in Wisconsin. Windows have been thrown open, winter clothes packed away, and the patio is prepped for sunset dinners. With a warm breeze flowing through our apartment, I feel like my soul has been refreshed and I can have a sigh of relief. We made it through winter!

Oreo Ice Cream Cake Pots

To celebrate the start of this new warm season I made Ian’s favorite dessert – Oreo ice cream cake! Assembled in small individual pots, these ice cream cakes solve the problem of “leftover temptation.” Now you can indulge in a sweet after dinner without having your will powered tested as leftovers sit in the freezer. This is necessary in our house when it comes to ice cream cake since Ian would devour the whole cake if I let him!

Oreo Ice Cream Cake Pots

Ingredients:

  • Pint of vanilla ice cream
  • One sleeve of Oreos
  • Hot fudge
  • 1 Tbs. coconut oil

Directions:

  • Blend the Oreos in a food processor until finely chopped. Mix in a bowl with 1 Tbs. melted coconut oil until well combined.
  • Spoon and pack down the Oreo mixture until each pot has 1/4 inch filled. Top with a thin layer of hot fudge and place the pots in the freezer for 5 minutes to set.
  • Pull the pots out of the freezer and spoon in 1/4 inch of ice cream into each pot. Place back in the freezer for five minutes.
  • Remove pots from freezer and spread another layer of Oreo crumble and hot fudge. Place back in the freezer for five minutes.
  • Take the pots out of the freezer and add one last layer of ice cream on top. Sprinkle remaining Oreo crumble on top and store in the freezer until ready to eat.

Month in Review: April, 2018

Month in Review: April, 2018

As we approached the beginning of April, I already knew it was going to be a busy month. Our calendar was full of hand written reminders for upcoming events, and while I was excited for each and every one of them, a small amount of anxiety set in. Being an introvert, I recharge with downtime and April did not allow for many quiet evenings. However, looking back I’m thankful for our busy month and all the memories it created.

Right from the start we were in celebration mode! I was lucky to have my birthday fall on Easter this year, so our family gathering was twice as fun. We enjoyed a delicious meal, ate cake, and laughed while we played board games.

After our Easter celebrations, we returned to Milwaukee and were met with snow. Yes, snow! This could have been my breaking point, but I decided to stay positive. This was not an easy choice, but visiting cozy local coffee helped lift my spirits.

With the snow sticking around for a few days, Ian and I took advantage of local indoor activities. We attended the Milwaukee Makers Market at the Discovery World and were surprised by the free exhibits! We wandered through the aquarium, played on a ship, and learned about waste water treatment. It was hard to pull Ian out of the exhibits, but we were celebrating our eight year dating anniversary that night and needed to head off to our dinner reservation.

April was a busy month for birthdays! My Grandma turned 93 this year and a big group of family members got together to celebrate. The afternoon was packed with catching up with cousins, eating wonderful food, and playing outside. (The snow had finally melted!!)

Month in Review: April, 2018

We closed out the month in the best possible way – with a wedding. Two of our close college friends tied the knot and hosted the most beautiful wedding weekend. Ian stood up in the wedding and I got emotional seeing all of our close friends together again in one room. We danced the night away at the reception and took full advantage of the photo booth to snap a few pictures from the night.

Cinnamon Apple Peanut Butter Toast

Cinnamon Apple Peanut Butter Toast

After dancing the night away at a wedding I woke up yesterday craving a simple, low-key breakfast. We have made a tradition out of leisurely eating pancakes on Sunday mornings, and I have fallen in love with this routine. However, I wasn’t in the mood to pull out the griddle and deal with all the clean-up. Therefore, I decided to take something simple, like toast, and spice it up with toppings to make this ordinary breakfast feel special.

Cinnamon Apple Peanut Butter Toast

Ian has a sweet spot for peanut butter so I chose to use that as my base. Topped with apple slices, a sprinkle of cinnamon, and drizzle of honey, a simple slice of toast was transformed into a delicious breakfast. It just goes to show that you don’t need to spend a lot of time in the kitchen to achieve a flavor-packed meal.
