Let’s Scream For Ice Cream: 4-Ingredient No-Machine Circus Animal Cookie Ice Cream

So as you probably can tell, I love ice cream (who doesn’t?), and I love making ice cream flavors that aren’t available in stores. But what I don’t like, is working hours on a product when there is an easy shortcut. And here is that short-cut. No-machine ice cream is made with two ingredients (heavy whipping cream and sweetened condensed milk) and any additional add-ins you want! So when contemplating what new flavors of ice cream I would make, I decided to revisit one of the best cookies that brings you back to your childhood: Circus Animal Cookies! You know, those pink and white animal shaped cookies coated with sprinkles? So if you take ice cream, which is awesome, and Circus Animal Cookies, which are also awesome, you basically get an awesome explosion!

The Ultimate Birthday Treat: Death-By-Oreo Cupcakes

I have this thing I do. Basically, I bake a whole lot of sweets when it’s a birthday for any single one of my friends. Everyone gets a treat and celebrates the birthday girl’s special day together. But what’s kind of weird is I have a document that has my friend’s and family’s names on it filled with desserts that someday I want to make for that specific person based on their tastes and personalities. So when I’m surfing Pinterest, I jot down any dessert recipes that seem like a good fit for a specific friend or family member. I know that seems like a lot of work and is slightly creepy, but I find it really fun. Plus, I love to be organized, and this is a great way to organize recipes! So this specific friend’s favorite dessert is chocolate cake and she has this thing with Oreos, so what could be better for her birthday than Death-By-Oreo Cupcakes? Let’s get baking!
