Mint Chocolate S'mores Pie

Be prepared to be indulged with this mint chocolate s'mores pie! All the great campfire flavors with a hint of mint and eaten with a fork.

Spring is upon us and it's time to start making some S'mores! I've combined the great flavors of graham crackers, mint chocolate and marshmallows into this amazing pie! It was quick and easy and to make and the kids loved it! 

I know that everyone loves a good s'mores dessert and this mint chocolate s'mores pie can wait in the fridge until you're ready to toast up the marshmallows and serve up a slice.

Two Cup Tuesday No.121

Phew! It's been a week! I had an amazing trip to the Wilton Headquarters! I learned a lot about their new products, got to bake with them, decorate cookie, taste test some new flavors, and check out their design studio! It was quite inspiring. The entire experience was wonderful. I learned some of their secrets and tips and I'm excited to use some of them in future posts :) 

It was great meeting the rest of the Wilton Sweet Team and the Micheal's Decorators. 

And... did you see the finished Mated Milk Chocolate Cake with Unicorn Bark and Strawberry Malted Milk Ice Cream over on Dieter's Downfall? Go check it out! It was an amazing cake! We all loved it!

Red, White and Black Fancy Cake Pops

I wanted to make some pretty cake pops. I've made pretty cake pops before and I love the simple ones that don't require a lot of intricate work. I rummaged through all of my supplies and I came across some mini cupcake liners and I thought they would be neat to stand up cake pops in. The little wooden sticks were also quite unique and added some glam to the pops. Then I came across three packs of Wilton Bow Candies. PERFECT-O!  These Red, White, and Black Fancy Cake Pops would be perfect for just about any event! 

Perfectly poised cake pops! Easy to make and beautifully stunning! Get the tutorial and supplies from Pint Sized Baker

Have you tried the Wilton Bright White Candy Melts recently? They sent me a new bag and WOW did they melt great! I know that a lot of cake poppers have issues with Wilton melts being thick, but honestly, I never really had any problems with them. I've been using Wilton melts for over 5 years now and haven't had any issues other than them being old, or me getting them too hot.

And that's the big secret to candy melts. ALL confectioners chocolate. If it's old, it's thicker and if you get it too hot, it's burned. There's really no way to recover from either one.  

Now, there are some things you can do to help out your melts.
#1 - Store them in a cool, dry place. No humidity. Not in the fridge.

#2 - Heat them slowly with low heat. They start to melt at body temperature, so nuking them in the microwave for 3 minutes is just going to burn them.

#3 - Melt them in a ceramic bowl or mug. This is what I use. I know others use a silicone bowl, I like my ceramic mug. The heat from the mug helps to slowly melt the wafers.

#4 - Be patient melting them. It will take all of 5 minutes to completely melt an entire bag of melts. Don't rush it!

I hope these tips help.

Here's how I melt my candy melts. Once I'm done dipping, these ceramic mugs have lids, so I just leave them to harden until the next time. Then I use the same method to remelt them adding more melts as needed.

To get this all over disco ball glitter effect, I've found it best to tap off as much of the candy as possible, then spoon the sanding sugar over the pops. Just keep spooning the sugar over until it's completely coated, then add some more. Leave the pop to dry and then add a bit of melts to the decoration to adhere it to the pop. 

These are so easy! I know you can make them! 

You'll also notice that these cake pops are HUGE!! They are 1 + 1/2 of a standard sized cake pop that I make. I made them big so that they would fill up the cupcake wrapper. If you aren't going to use the wrapper, then just keep the cake pop dough at a 1 Tablespoon sized ball.

You can find all the supplies for this project at your local craft store and order the cute mini cupcake wrapper and sticks online from Confetti Couture

This great Pineapple Ice Cream is really a sherbet, but we won't spoil it for the kids! They love it!

Have you ever had a Dole Whip from Disney? No? Well, don't worry, you don't have to spend a small fortune at Disney to enjoy a refreshing pineapple sherbet! Fresh pineapple and a bit of milk in the food processor is all you need to make it at home.

Two Cup Tuesday No.120

I'm loving spring! We've been sleeping with the windows open and waking up to the birds chirping. I've been walking in the mornings now to wake up and start my day on a positive note. I'm excited again about my day and it's all thanks to Spring! I love the beautiful flower blossoms on the trees, the warm breeze on my cheek, and all the songbirds in my yard. It was a long, depressing winter for me, but it's come to an end and I'm waking back up. Do you feel that way about spring too?

Over on Dieter's Downfall, I've made an amazing malted milk chocolate cake with strawberry malted milk ice cream and a funky candy bark. I love how it turned out. Check it out!

I've also got a giveaway going on right now through Wednesday night for a ton of NEW Wilton Products. This is for all you cake decorators out there! Head on over and enter now.
