Wow them with Yum.
I really like to make yummy things to eat and give away. I do it all year ‘round, but in the summer it gets a little difficult to bake without heating up the house to seriously uncomfortable proportions. Soooo, no-bake treats are great. The recipe I’m sharing is not new. I have seen recipes for this one in many incarnations with added treats, flavorings, etc, so you can make it minty, raspberry flavored, boozierific—whatever fits your mood.
1 package of Oreos (you will have a few extra)
2 sticks of unsalted butter (you will have extra)
1 Pint carton of heavy whipping cream (plenty left over for fresh whipped cream)
1-10 oz package semisweet chocolate (or dark if you like it)
Step 1: Take 2 rows of Oreos and crush them in a zipper bag (or food process them)
Step 2: Press crumbs in the bottom of a pan (8×8 works fine-but you can go fancier if you want)
Step 3: Pour ½ cup melted butter over the cookie crumbs.
Place crust in the Freezer
Step 1: pour ½ cup of cream in sauce pan. Heat to light boil, watching carefully.
Step 2: Remove from heat.
Step 3: Add 7 oz of chocolate and ¼ cup of butter (small cubes melts faster).
Step 4: Stir constantly until chocolate and butter are melted into cream.
Step 5: Remove crust from freezer and pour the filling mixture over it.
Step 5: Add your chocolate chip sprinkles or nuts or Oreos now for decoration
Step 6: Return to freezer for at least 2 hours.
Will be delicious after 3 hours.
Will be AMAZING after 24 hours.
Fresh whipped cream makes this even better.
Got book club coming up? Friends coming over? This one will wow them 🙂
And now for another awesome summer treat, Steph’s new book and a great contest!
Jenn’s love of basketball and travel lead her to Greece, but only one man could keep her coming back. After sharing sexy summers with distinguished businessman Dorian Logos, Jenn returns for a seventh with more emotional baggage than she’d like, but her feelings for Dorian push her out of her comfort zone.
Dorian has loved Jenn for years, the young American delivering spice and sweetness during their weeks together. When she arrives in Hellas, limping from an injury, he quickly sees more than her knee is hurting. He wants his love to be enough to heal all ails, but it’s hard to show his love to a woman who can’t tolerate his touch. If he can help Jenn get well, he might be able to make their usual summer last and bring her home to Hellas forever.
