Frozen Strawberry Pie

I made this the other day hoping that CT would finally see some warmer weather…not so much! 😦

I made this a couple times last summer and tried a couple different recipes that I have found but this one combination was the best I came up with!

It is very easy and oh so good with only a couple ingredients!

Frozen Strawberry Pie

Ingredients:

2lb Strawberry Yogurt (big container)

1 8oz cool whip

1 pint strawberries sliced

2 oreo pie crusts

Directions:

Whip together the yogurt and cool whip until it is well mixed

Add the chopped strawberries

Pour the mixture into the two pie crusts

Place in the freezer for a couple hours depending on how frozen you want it. (I like to have it in no longer than two hours because I prefer it not too frozen, I tend to let it sit out and soften a little too when it comes out of the freezer)

Here is a picture before the pie was “frozen” i can eat it just like this, it is that good!

I hope you guys enjoy this and I hope the warmer weather tends to get her soon and stick around for a little while!

**Warning** this pie mixture is so good you might want to just it it as is! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

Man what a slacker!

1. I have not made anything new in a while (since Easter)

2. IΒ  have been sick and very lazy and have not wrote a single post in prob 3 days!

I promise some good, fun stuff will come back soon, but please bare with me as I recover from this awful cold!

For the time being here are some funnies to keep us entertained while I struggle to get over this awful cold!

Here are some short people and lazy problems that I encounter:

Something that just makes me laugh out loud! I don’t do instagram and the hash-tag thing kind of drives me nuts so this is what I prefer to think of πŸ™‚

Butterfinger Pie

Here is another dessert I made for Easter. I found it here from Pinterest a long time a go and I have made it a couple times and love it! I love everything about it, the fact that it has 4 ingredients, that it is so easy and quick and that it has butterfingers…YUM!

DSC03285

INGREDIENTS:
1 bag bite size butterfinger candy bars, crushed (I put it in a food processor and made it really fine)
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese (softened)
1 (12 ounce) carton Cool Whip
1 graham cracker crust
DIRECTIONS:
Cream together the cream cheese and cool whip
Then add the crushed butterfinger (reserving a little to sprinkle on top) and mix until well blended
Put it in pie crust
Sprinkle the reserved crushed butterfinger on top

Then Chill until you are ready to enjoy!

How simple is that! Now go ahead and give it a shot! You have no excuse not to πŸ˜‰

Rolo Bars

Like promised I made my Rolo Bars for Easter and if I do say so myself, they came out pretty well!

Rolo Bars

Ingredients:

3 Cups finely chopped graham crackers

1/2 cup sugar

1 stick butter (melted)

1 package of caramel squares

1 bag chocolate chips

1 bag mini rolo’s

Directions:

1. Once the graham crackers are all chopped up, mix in the sugar and then the butter and mix until the graham crackers are all moist.

2. In a sprayed 13 x 9 pan, press the graham cracker mixture into the bottom of the pan,Β Then bake at 350 degrees for 10 mins and let completely cool (I saw a tip for making bars to put non stick aluminum foil in bottom so you could just pull it out and it would make it easier to cut…i did not do this but If I were you, I would, the caramel makes it difficult to cut in the pan!)

3. While the crust is cooling, Following the directions on the caramel bag, unwrap and melt the caramels on the stove (I believe it was just the caramels and 2 tbsp of water), once it is all melted, just pour it over the graham cracker crust and spread all over evenly.

4. Next melt the chocolate chips and then spread that over the caramel layer.

5. Take the mini Rolo’s and sprinkle them on top of the chocolate while it is still wet ( I chopped up the rolo’s so they were smaller pieces, but it wasn’t so easy so feel free to do them how you prefer πŸ™‚

6. Once the bars are dry and hardened, cut them up into bars and enjoy!

The Bars drying after I poured the chocolate on and sprinkled them with Rolo pieces:

Reese Bark Recipe

Ingredients:

1 bag chocolate chips

1 bag Reese chips

1 Tbsp shortening

1/2 cup chopped peanuts

Directions:

Melt the Chocolate chips in the microwave

Then melt the Reese chips in the microwave with the shortening

When the Reese chips come out all melted, add the chopped peanuts and stir until well combined

Now is the fun part! Just spread the melted Reese and chocolate all over a wax paper covered cookie sheet, alternating and using a knife and making swirls (I just kind of dump some chocolate in spot and some Reese in spots then spread it out and swirl it around)

Once it is all spread out, just put it in the freezer to harden, then you can take it out and break it up and start enjoying it.

**after you break up the bark, it tends to soften if left out to room temp, so I tend to leave it in bags in the fridge πŸ™‚

I hope you enjoy! Happy Hump Day!
