Two Cup Tuesday Linky Party No.144

How is it October already? My summer tan is fading and the down comforter is back on the bed. Halloween is quickly approaching, followed by Thanksgiving and then Christmas is hot on the heels. The whirl-wind is starting and we need to jump on this freight train or get left behind. I saw a lot of Pumpkin and Apple recipes - fall decor and wonderful soups - and don't forget the warm fuzzies that people are making to keep your fingers, neck or toes nice and warm. I think I may be the only one not happy about jumping on to the freight train to holiday land...

Easy Caramel Apples and Slices

Caramel Apples can be a real pain in the butt to make, but when you have the Caramel Apple Dip from Wilton you're gonna rock with your candy apple skills. Growing up, caramel apples were just for fairs. I remember getting those caramel disks that you could mold around the apples for that oh so ugly fake caramel apple look. Haha! I thought I was such a cool 12 year old with my homemade apples. 

As I've matured, I have learned that making homemade caramel apples that are awesome can also be easy.

It starts with the Wilton Caramel Dip, their new faux wooden stickscaramel apple boxeslarge treat cupsfall label stickers, some apples, and different sprinkles.

Two Cup Tuesday Linky No.143

Ugh.... I am going through a change - a transformation - I'm a chrysalis waiting to turn into a butterfly. For several months I've been mulling over the idea of merging Pint Sized Baker with Dieter's Downfall. Having two blogs has turned out to be just too much to keep up with. I haven't posted to Dieter's Downfall for several months and it's just sitting there. So, I've hired a graphics designer to create a new logo and I've been working with a web guy to move from blogger to WP and design a new site for my baby. I hope that I can get it all done within the next 30 days! It'll be a lot of work, but I'm hopeful.... Keep your fingers crossed for me!

Brownie Ice Cream Sandwiches

Brownie Doughnuts with a layer of Vanilla ice cream and a generous amount of rainbow sprinkles! I love it and must make a bunch to store in the freezer!

I love a good ice cream sandwich! They are awesomely portable, delicious, and fun to eat. I had some left over brownie batter and thought I'd play with some brownie donuts, but when they were done baking they weren't quite what I wanted. I looked at those sad brownie donuts and almost tossed them in the trash... but then lightening struck and I was hit by an awesome idea - Brownie Ice Cream Sandwiches! Eureka! These fun sandwiches were born and life was good again!

Fun and delicious Brownie Ice Cream Sandwiches are great to make ahead and serve to all the brownie a la mode fans! Easy to make and they store in the freezer for a long time.
These Brownie Ice Cream Sandwiches are HUGE! Perfect for sharing on movie night with the hubby!

Peach Bellini Merveilleux

Impress your guests with these individual meringue desserts. French Merveilleux are flavored with Peach and Champagne for a unique dessert!

I can't bring myself to admit that summer is coming to an end. The evenings are turning cooler and the mornings are brisk. It also means that the humidity is less and that makes it perfect for making meringues. These Peach Bellini Merveilleux are the perfect combination of peach flavored meringues and champagne flavored whipped cream. 

They were just MARVELOUS!
