2 Sticks of Unsalted Butter

Mix really well until no lumps and place in a piping bag (homemade or store bought piping bag). Once, its mixed well add your pink food color until you reach your desired pink color. Take a baking sheet and line with parchment paper. Now take a hear shaped cookie cutter (any size of your choice) and draw hearts onto your parchment paper. This will be the outline that you pipe your batter into to bake. Take your piping bag and pipe your batter in the shape of a heart inside of your outlined heart. You want to stay an inch or more away from the lines. The batter expands when it bakes. Now, pop into your oven and bake for 8 minutes.

You now have a whoopie Pie!

Watergate Salad

This has been a staple at Thanksgiving since I was crawling! It’s simple and I love all the flavors of the pudding and the cool whip with the marshmallows ….Mmmmmmmmmm! Easy as 1,2,3 and its low fat (its the only low fat dish I make at Thanksgiving). Mix 1 package of jell-o pistachio sugar-free-fat free pudding, 1 80z can of crushed pineapple, 1 cup of low -fat yogurt (I like greek gods honey yogurt or you can use vanilla), and 1 tub of sugar free cool whip! Stir well and add a handful of marshmallows and nuts (optional). Then let chill for at least an hour. 🙂

Time To Make The Donuts

No, literally its time to make the donuts! 🙂 I know everyone loves a donut every now and again, right? I do! I had the craving this morning and made cinnamon & sugar donut holes. All you need is a can of biscuits (I keep extra in fridge because they come in handy) and pull them apart into three’s and role into balls. You could also make regular size donuts by placing a hole in the center of the biscuit. Heat your peanut oil on the stovetop until its nice and warm then reduce the heat to a medium-low or low. You may want to test a few before hand to make sure your oil is the right temperature before you toss them all in. You will continuously flip with your tongs until golden brown on all sides and cooked all the way through. Place the cooked donuts onto a plate covered with paper towels to absorb any extra oil and then toss in your cinnamon & sugar mixture. You will need 1 tsp of cinnamon and 1/4 cup of sugar to coat. Bam~you have donuts! Tasty little weekend treat 😉

Chocolate & Carmel Marshmallow Pops

Wowzers! I use to drive my girlfriend nuts always buying chocolate & carmel covered marshmallow pops at the mall and now I’m making them right at home. A few simple ingredients and easy steps …
Ingredients
1 Package of Large Mashmallows
1 Bag of Carmel
1 Container of Chocolate
Sucker Sticks
Melt the carmel on low heat on stovetop in a pot sprayed with pam and with 2 tbsp of water. Place a sucker stick in each marshmallow and dip in the carmel or spoon it onto the marshmallow. Stand each individual one on wax paper sprayed with pam because the carmel will want to stick. Once the carmel is firm on the marshmallow, spoon the melted chocolate on the marshmallow and allow to harden on the wax paper. That’s all she wrote people! Easy! Easy! Easy!
