Blueberry Whip Cake

I’ve got one more recipe to share using the Kraft products from my basket of fun. If you missed the other two, check out Chocolate Chip Strawberry Pretzel Squares and Boston Cream Cake.  Today, I’ve got this Blueberry Whip Cake that reminded me of the dump cake I shared 3 years ago, a.k.a. Blackberry Cobbler. It’s got a marshmallow base, blueberry pie filling, a cake mix, and COOL WHIP!

Fudgy Vanilla Brownie

At first glance, this fudgy vanilla brownie doesn’t look so appetizing in the large pan it’s baked in. It’s actually called a white texas sheet cake, but I decided “cake” just doesn’t do this treat justice. Maybe it’s because I’m more of a brownie girl, but it tastes more like a brownie to me–a fudgy brownie.   There are 3 reasons I would normally pass on this dessert at first site:

  1. I’m not a big fan of cake in general
  2. I don’t care for plain vanilla stuff
  3. There are no nuts or chips or chunks in this–boring!

So. Not. Boring.

Fudgy Vanilla Brownie, also known as White Texas Sheet Cake, this recipe is AMAZING! #brownie #texassheetcake KristenDuke.com… Continue Reading

3 ways to use Wilton Mint Drops

Have you heard of mint non pareils or Wilton mint drops? They have turned into one of my favorite little snacking treats! You may have seen them in a candy dish at weddings. In fact, I’ve had a hard time finding them, but have found success in the wedding aisle at Michael’s craft store. I first became enamored with this sweet delicacy a year ago at a conference. There was a candy dish filled with the giant Non Pareil Assorted Mint Chocolate, (the base is the size of a nickel).

I had a little baggie filled with them , and I snacked on them throughout the day. They are white chocolate and minty, with a bit of texture from the sprinkles. I’ve since found the mini size, Wilton’s Mint drops

I decided I wanted to try them in a few of my favorite recipes, and I’m here to say:  they turned out quite delightfully!
