Cream Puffs - Protiferoles

Author: Taste of Cakes // Category:

Wednesday night I attended a pot luck, everyone brings a dish to pass.
I made Cream Puffs. Well to be correct, they're called Protiferoles.
I purchased a new Williams-Sonoma Masters Recipes of frozen desserts last weekend.
Couldn't wait to make some goodies, so I decided this tasty treat would be the easiest transportable frozen dessert, and I was right.
Everything worked out well!

The recipe, which I will post when I get the recipe book back from the pot luck house, calls for vanilla ice cream. Kroger was having a sale and had pints 10 for 10, so I bought six flavors.

Vanilla Mint Chocolate Chip Strawberry Chocolate Chip
Chocolate Moose Tracks Fried Ice Cream

This allowed guests to choose which flavor was best for them!

Then I made a chocolate sauce...amazing...also found in the William-Sonoma recipe book.
Then sprinkled a little powdered sugar on top and it was ready to serve.

Today I visited Matt and Sprout on WXOU and took with me Cream Puffs.
Very Yummmy...Pictures of that event soon to come!

Hello There
It's been a while, but I am back,
I accidentally deleted some of the posts.... sorry.
Tonight I made profiteroles, aka Cream Puffs.
I suppose what makes them profiteroles instead of Cream Puffs is the lack of cream and abundance of ice cream, different flavors too!

So much fun! I made them for a Christmas party I am attending tonight.
Will have pictures in the morning. Check back.

Reese's Peatunt Butter Christmas Trees!

It's that time of the year again!
Yes, I mean it's time for he Reese's Christmas Trees!!!
A friend of mine, Ali, told me they were out in the stores and today I bought them!
I actually began to get a bit of a stomach ache because I ate so many, but it was well worth it.
So everyone needs to go buy these.
They're a bit more expensive than regular peanut butter cups, but they're better!
There's more peanut butter or something.

Snickers Pie

This weekend I made a Snickers Pie for dessert!
It was amazing.

Here is the recipe: I began to follow a recipe that I found online, but ended up making it my own.

1 Full Bag of Mini Snickers
1/3 C. Peanut Butter
2 Tbs. Half and Half
1 Graham Cracker Pie Crust
1/4 C. Marshmallows

Create a double boiler.
(If you don't have this, you'll need two pots. One small and one larger. Put the larger of the two on the range, fill about half full of water, put the smaller pot inside the larger, and boil)
Add entire bag of snickers to small pot and allow to melt.
Add 1/3 C. peanut butter. (I used Reese's PB)
Add 2Tbs. Half and Half
Constantly stirring, allow all ingredients to melt together.
Once the mixture appears melted add marshmallows and mix in until completely melted.
Pour into pie crust.
Freeze 4-5 hours before serving.
I would also maybe take the pie out and let it sit for 15 minutes before serving, when it's frozen, it's a little hard to eat.

That is what I made this weekend, however, I have been thinking of ways to improve this Snickers Pie.

I am going to make another pie this weekend.
Check back to to for the additions I've made to improve the Snickers Pie!

Peanut Butter Brownies!

Author: Taste of Cakes // Category:

Okay. So no new cake yet, but soon! 
I did however, make brownies last night. 
And you bet by today they were all gone!
I went to Aldai's, local market, on my way to a book store, where I found amazing Ghirardelli double chocolate brownie mix for only 1.80 a box. 
Needless to say, I bought a bunch! ( probably way too many)
Took them home and made brownies.
You'd think double chocolate was enough for me...but NOPE. It was not.
I added a little less veggie oil and added 1/3 cup melted peanut butter into the brownie mix.
It's a must try!!
Will be the hit of any party!

More cakes coming soon!!

Happy Halloween!

My name is Lucy Chard and I am new to blogging.  My goal by becoming a member of the logging community is to meet new people who share the same interests as I do.  Starting with baking and cake decorating!  It's my favorite thing to do.    I hope to connect with new people, share ideas and troubleshoot with other bakers!  I try to bake at least one cake a week, though I have a very busy schedule.  I will be posting pictures and blogging my experiences, hopefully through videos!

I recently made a lot of Halloween cupcakes for and event I attended.  I uploaded some of the pictures and there are more to come!
