IKEA Hack 3 ingredient Brownies

IKEA chocolate and caramel spread three ingredient brownies. It's the best tasting IKEA hack ever!

I've spent a lot of time at IKEA recently and I fell in love with their Chokladkrokant Bredbar. What the what?? It's a chocolate spread with little caramel pieces mixed in. I wanted to test it out in some nutella recipes, so I stared off with a tried and true favorite - brownies. I call them Ikea Hack Brownies and they were great!

Brownies a la mode! Three ingredient brownies with a big scoop of ice cream, caramel and sprinkles.

Two Cup Tuesday Linky Party No.134

It's been a whirlwind week. We took a few days to head out of town and spend a day at Busch Gardens in Williamsburg. It was hot, but we had a blast in the park riding rides and going on roller coasters and enjoying a bit too much ice cream. It was a great getaway from social media and blogging. When I got back, I had to complete my biennial Flight Instructor Refresher Course. That's right, in my former life I was a pilot and my pilots license never expires but in order to maintain my instructors certificate, I need to take a long online test every two years. It's a huge pain in the butt, but I've got to do it. 

So, no blogging for a week, so I'm sharing some posts from the last few years. All of these posts were made the last week of August from 2012, 2013, and 2014.

Two Cup Tuesday No.133

We are finally headed out of town this week. FINALLY! My kid has had me busy, my husband has had me busy and I have been busy this summer. So, we're heading out of town for a few days. Nothing big or crazy, just heading down the road to Williamsburg, VA to hit up  Busch Gardens and ride a few roller coasters! It's not the beach, it's not a resort destination, but we're out of the house for a few days.

As a result, I've decided not to post this week. I don't want to deal with blogging and the stress of loading up my posts and social media shares and all the stuff that comes along with that. I'll be back with the next linky party next week. 

Last week I shared these fun butterfly cake pops and yummy 7 layer magic bars

Wafer Paper Butterfly Cake Pops

Learn how to make these fun cake pops with edible wafer paper butterflies. They look so beautiful!

It's been a while, but I finally made some cake pops. My kid has been asking me about making her some for a  few weeks now, so I finally, finally made these beautiful wafer paper butterfly cake pops for her and she loved them! Aren't they just so perfect? The lovely Pege from Never Forgotten Designs, sent them to me to test out and photograph. These pops would be blah without these pretty, pre-cut rice wafer butterflies. I (big puffy heart) love them!

Seven Layer Magic Coconut Bars

Yummy Seven Layer Magic Coconut Bars are easy to make, everyone will be asking for more!

Yes, I turned my oven on and I loved the result. I made an amazing batch of ooey gooey seven layer magic coconut bars and then I proceeded to inhale most of it! These bars are loaded with chocolate and coconut - I guess you could say these are the equivalent to a Mounds Bar in a pan. I seriously loved them!

My kid is in CAMP!! Hooray for all day camp. I am so excited to have her out of my hair. I love my kiddo, but we've entered into the phase of "I'm not going to do anything that my mom tells me to do". I know this will get worse when she's a teenage, but my goodness, it's exhausting! So, today I've had a great day of blogging uninterrupted. It's been great! It's given me time to do some Online Blog Con planning.

Rhubarb and Mixed Berry Galette

Pies can be such a hassle, that's why I love making Galettes instead. This Fresh Rhubarb and Mixed Berry Galette is a fabulous weeknight dessert.

Love pie, but hate all the work that goes into them? You'll love an easy Galette for your pie fix! Think of a galette as a "rustic" pie. No pie tin, no crimped edges, no lattice tops, no sweat. This easy Rhubarb and Mixed Berry Galette can be thrown together in five minutes and ready to enjoy for a weekday dessert.  

Enjoy a slice of this Rhubarb and Mixed Berry Galette! It's the perfect dessert for everyday!
