Here is the recipe for Dunk A Roo dip that I found on Facebook!

Dunkaroodip

1 box funfetti cake mix (DO NOT add the ingredients that you usually would to actually make the cake – you need just the mix)
2 cups plain (or vanilla) yogurt
1/2 container of cool whip.
Serve with animal crackers or graham crackers.

I’m assuming you just mix those three ingredients together and voila! Can’t wait to make this for girls night sometime. If I decide to make it tonight I will def take a picture of it. 🙂 Wanted to share!!

Apple Fritters

I have never made anything fried before! However, these Apple Fritters looked AMAZING.  I’m so tempted to try them just so I can say I have made them! They definitely look like something you get at the fair 🙂

Go to Use Real Butter’s blog to see recipe here

Scroll down on the page. Initially you will see the pic of a dog haha but it’s right under that. If anyone tries these lmk how they are 🙂  The recipe looks much more healthy than I would have imagined it to be. ❤

Click on pic to make bigger! Looks SO simple and yummy. Nothing like a warm apple with cinnomon on it!

Original idea comes from Win, Lose, or Blog ‘s page

Their Guilt Free Banana Icecream (with ONLY ingredient being bananas!!) can be found here as well

Two Peas and Their Pod used same recipe but added peanut butter! OMG YUM!  Their page can be found here

I’m looking forward to trying both!

Quick Cinnamon Apple Tart

I was watching Ten Dollar Dinners on the Food Network today. I watched Melissa D’Arabian put together an easy and delicious looking Cinnamon Apple Tart.  Recipe can be found:

The crust was homemade too!

Flour, Salt, and Sugar is all that makes up the crust 🙂

Or

I’m guessing you could use a pre made baking crust (?)

I do not have a food processor so I’m wondering if just a hand mixer can be used…anyone know?

This was a four out of five-star recipe

Worth a Shot!

Love making things I’ve never tried before.

Picture above found here along with bio on her life.

It was interesting to get to know a few facts behind the chef such as:

“Raised by a single mother who was putting herself through college and medical school, Melissa grew up in Tucson, Ariz., with a
coupon-cutter mentality and on a shoestring budget in a humble home where waste
was frowned upon”

“She could never have guessed that a home video of her making yogurt — a simple
yet successful strategy that saved Melissa more than $1,000 a year — to share
with local moms would also be her ticket to the newest chapter in her career and
life path.”

EASY Chocolate Dipped Pretzels

chocolate dipped pretzels

I think this is the next Bachelor Girls Night treat that I am going to make for my friends!! Oh! She Cooks! blog explains it step by step. It looks so much easier than I had imagined it.I’m going to add sprinkles to mine because I LOVE color! Recipe with pics can be found here

 Chocolate-Dipped Pretzels –
Easy

Yield:  30-40 logs

1/2 (12 oz) bag melting
chocolate
1/2 lb. pretzel logs
1/4 cup white melting chocolate
(optional)
1/2 cup mini chips, M&Ms and/or jimmies (optional)

Wax Paper

HOW TO MAKE (in exact words of Oh! She Cooks!) :

  • Place chocolate in a microwave-safe 1 quart bowl.  Microwave on full power for 1
    minute.  Stir, then microwave for another 30 seconds. Stir until chocolate is
    completely melted.
  • Hold pretzel by one end.  Dip other end into chocolate, almost all the way up,
    then tap on inner edge of bowl to allow excess chocolate to drip.
  •  slide pretzel onto prepared baking sheet (to reduce puddling).  Repeat with
    remaining pretzels.  Reheat chocolate for 20 additional seconds if it starts to
    thicken up.
  • To decorate with white chocolate:  place dipped pretzels in the fridge for about
    10 minutes to firm up chocolate.  Meanwhile, place white chocolate in pipping
    bag/bottle or small food-grade freezer bag (storage bags are too flimsy).
  • Microwave at 30 seconds intervals until white chocolate starts to melt.  Remove
    from microwave and massage bag/bottle until white chocolate is completely
    melted.  Snip off a tiny corner of bag.  Using a quick back-and-forth motion (or
    as I call it, wheeeee!)  slowly squeeze bag/bottle to drizzle pretzels
    randomly.
  • I didn’t do this, but before any of the chocolate dries you can
    also sprinkle with mini-chocolate chips, M&Ms and/or jimmies.
  • Slide
    baking sheet into fridge again to completely harden chocolate.  TIP ALERT:
    scrape up excess white chocolate to use again.
  • Store dipped pretzels in tightly sealed container at cool room temperature for
    up to 3 days or refrigerate up to a week.  Allow to come to room temperature (in
    sealed container to avoid condensation) before serving.

I know this looks like a lot of steps but I encourage you to go to the website and see the step by step pictures provided by Oh! She Cooks! like the one I have posted above. It’s really easy once you look at those! 🙂 Can’t wait to try this! I’m hoping mine will look like this!:
