Tomorrow is lovey day. I think there should always be a reason to celebrate loved ones all around you. Also, if there’s an excuse to make some fun food, count me in! A triffle is simple, yet elegant. It’s a classic dessert and can be easily personalized. Want more chocolate? Add it! Want more fruit? Pile it on! Want more whipped topping, like me? Fluff it up to your hearts desire! Make it for you and your friends, hubby, parents, or even kids for tomorrow or any time of the year! xoxo
Have the happiest Monday!
About one brownie per triffle
About one container raspberries, washed and dried
Heavy whipping cream
Sugar to taste
What to do:
Homemade Whipped Cream:
In a mixer, whip heavy whipping cream and sprinkle in sugar to taste. Whip on the highest setting for a few minutes.
You can use any type of glass or mug for the triffle. I used champagne flutes to add a fun touch. Cut the brownies into one inch squares and place about three squares into the bottom of each champagne flute. Add about one to two dollaps of homemade whipped cream to the champagne flute. Add three to four raspberries. Add about three brownie squares again. Add one to two dollaps of whipped topping. Top with one raspberry on top for garnish.
*All the ingredients are approximate, depending on your liking.*
Eric and I took a short getaway and it was perfect-o!
Four.They were calling for snow but who knew if it would actually happen. Well, what do you know? We woke up to this. 🙂 It made our time away even more fun and beautiful!
Five. All this snow had me craving these Hot Cocoa Stirers. 🙂
One Dark Chocolate Bar per stirer
Whipped cream or other toppings
What to do:
You will need one chocolate bar per stirer. (I used Dove Dark Chocolate Bars). In a small sauce pan, break the chocolate bars into smaller pieces and melt on medium low to low heat. Stir occasionally to avoid burning and until fully melted. Pour or spoon the melted chocolate into a one inch tray. Place in the refrigerator for about 40 minutes or until firm. Stick a popsicle stick into the center of the cube. Return to the refrigerator for an additional 20 minutes or so.
Place stirer into a mug of heated milk and stir until melted. Top with your favorite toppings! xo
Psstt… I used this one inch Silicone cube tray and it worked great! This and this also look like they would work well!
When I asked what recipes you wanted to see on here, so many people requested pasta. It’s a favorite meal from so many readers and can be made in just a few minutes, I completely get it! After seeing Lakita‘s recipe, and talking to her, she was so willing to let me share her mouth-watering Easy Tomato Basil Pasta with you.
Everyone should without-a-doubt make her Easy Tomato Basil Pasta this week. You and your family will not be disappointed! Add some wine and dessert and you also have the perfect Valentines date, right in your home. 😉
Asparagus is one of my favorite veggies and wrapping it in bacon is just heavenly. 🙂 Here’s a quick side for your Tuesday night thanks to Annie at Home of Malones. My mouth is already watering thinking about this recipe! You can find the original recipe here! Happy Tuesday!
I have been on a serious smoothie bowl kick lately. My body has been craving clean foods but I also don’t want to walk away from the table feeling hungry. You know I’m a big fan of smoothies but I wanted a little extra somethin’ somethin’ to help energize me for the day. A smoothie bowl is the faultless balance between light and filling. Here’s a little tip: Don’t skimp on the Homemade Granola! In all honesty, it completes the smoothie bowl, providing a crunchy topping and makes it all it’s cracked up to be!
