Copycat Red Lobster Lava Cake

Any recipe that starts out with chocolate, butter, and sugar has GOT to be good!  And this recipe is better than good.  It’s amazing!  I’ve ordered lava cake at many restaurants, but Red Lobster has to be the best.  Unfortunately, the one near me stopped serving it, despite my protests, so I figured out how to make Copycat Red Lobster Lava Cake at home.  Remarkably, it’s pretty easy and it makes not just one Copycat Red Lobster Lava Cake, but six!  Now I can have them ready in the fridge for whenever I need my chocolate fix!

How Does the Center of a Copycat Red Lobster Lava Cake Stay Liquid

That was a question I always asked myself when I was ordering these wonderful little treats.  The trick is freezing Copycat Red Lobster Lava Cake in an oven proof, single serve dish.  You bake them frozen, and not completely, so the center is hot but gooey and delicious, the trademark of a Copycat Red Lobster Lava Cake.  But shhhh!  Don’t tell everyone the secret!  Let them wonder how you did it!

Fizzy Berry Burst Milkshakes

Milkshakes are a pretty standard drink, especially during the summer.  They have been around in many forms for a long time, without many changes other than new flavors and flavor mixes.  While soda shops and milkshake stands aren’t around much anymore, you can turn your kitchen into a milkshake stand with a simple blender.  Make sure you have lots of glasses and straws because Fizzy Berry Burst Milkshakes are sure to become a favorite!

Gingerale Makes Fizzy Berry Burst Milkshakes Amazing

The basic milkshake is ice cream, milk, and flavoring.  Fizzy Berry Burst Milkshakes skip the milk and uses frozen berries for the flavoring.  Blending them in a blender makes a beautiful base for the secret ingredient: gingerale.  Tangy and sweet, it adds a great fizz and flavor to an otherwise delicious but flat milkshake.  I love Canada Dry Gingerale for the Fizzy Berry Burst Milkshakes because it has the perfect flavor that compliments the berries well and melds with the vanilla in the ice cream.

Fizzy Berry Burst Milkshakes Without the Berries

Are you not a fan of berries?  Have no fear!  There are other flavors you could add to Fizzy Berry Burst Milkshakes instead of berries!  Chocolate syrup, mixed with the ice cream then combined with gingerale makes a fantastic Fizzy Berry Burst Milkshakes, sans berries!  Gingerale goes with so many different flavors.  Try using a vanilla bean ice cream, add a little of the gingerale to the blender, then pour more gingerale over it in your glass for a great cream soda.  Don’t let a dislike for berries or maybe even an allergy to them prevent you from Fizzy Berry Burst Milkshakes!

 

1 ½ C vanilla ice cream

½ C raspberries

½ C blueberries

1 can gingerale

 

In a blender, blend the ice cream, raspberries, and blueberries until completely blended.

Pour in a glass and pour the gingerale over it.

Sip with a straw and enjoy!

Peach Blueberry Pie in a Jar for a Surprising Dessert

I love to surprise my family with something that they love, served in a different way, especially when it’s creative.  When peaches are fresh and blueberries are freshly frozen, they love homemade Peach Blueberry Pie.  It’s been a family favorite for four generations.  Placing this fabulous combination in 4 ounce Ball canning jars makes it adorable, plus, you can put the lid on and give it as gifts!  Everyone smiles when a Peach Blueberry Pie in a Jar is served.

Choosing Fruit for Peach Blueberry Pie in a Jar

You can easily make Peach Blueberry Pie in a Jar year round with frozen peaches and blueberries, but in the summer, choose peaches that yield to slight pressure.  They will be very juicy and have the perfect flavor to compliment the blueberries.  Blueberries should be plump and dark in color for the best flavor.  Check your area for farms where you can pick your own blueberries not only for Peach Blueberry Pie in a Jar, but for freezing for later.  They are fantastic mid-winter when fruits are blah.

Blueberry Bread Pudding Makes the Perfect Dessert

Bread pudding is one of those treats often seen when dining out, but you hardly ever hear of anyone making it at home.  It was not a treat made at my home when I was growing up, but after making it once, it became a big hit.  One of the great things about bread pudding is the ability to add seasonal fruit, beyond the traditional raisins.  I love making Blueberry Bread Pudding, and my family loves when I make it.  It’s simple, takes just a few minutes to put together, and when you serve it, it’s elegant and perfect for company.

The Bread Makes a Difference in Blueberry Bread Pudding

The bread really does make a difference in Blueberry Bread Pudding.  Dense breads, such as a boule or Italian make good Blueberry Bread Pudding.  I checked out the breadmaker at a local farmer’s market and found a wonderful brown bread for this recipe.  It adds another level of flavor to the Blueberry Bread Pudding.  Choose a bread that is rich and dense for the best Blueberry Bread Pudding.  Also, cutting the bread and leaving it out overnight to get stale, or toasting it in the oven for a few minutes before mixing it with the wet ingredients makes for a much better, less soggy Blueberry Bread Pudding.

Salted Caramel Pretzel Brownies

Yep, you read that right.  Salty, sweet, gooey, chocolate.  Everything you need for an awesome day!  The best part is everything is from the store, from the brownie mix to the caramel sauce.  With a little planning, you can get it all on sale for little or nothing too!  These will be a hit at an office carry-in or picnic as every chocolate lover will be enthralled with the sweet salty goodness.

Making Salted Caramel Pretzel Brownies Special

If you have a special occasion coming up, Salted Caramel Pretzel Brownies is your dessert!  I make them extra special by using an extra special caramel sauce that I found at a farmer’s market.  Check your local shops and markets for a special caramel sauce.  Something that is handmade typically has more flavor as it’s made with ingredients like butter and cream.  The trick is to use a caramel sauce in Salted Caramel Pretzel Brownies that you like.  If you like it on ice cream, you’ll love it on the brownies.

Chilling Salted Caramel Pretzel Brownies

If you chill your Salted Caramel Pretzel Brownies, it will help your caramel sauce set up and make for prettier squares when you cut them.  The opposite is also true if you like a more liquid caramel.  Let the Salted Caramel Pretzel Brownies sit out in a warm room and the caramel will get soft and runny, giving your squares a draped look.  Either way, Salted Caramel Pretzel Brownies are an amazing end to a meal!

Banana Split in a Jar is an Adorable Dessert

Banana Split in a Jar is an adorable way to serve up a favorite dessert or even take it on the go.  Low Cost Recipes give you a great dessert for little cash.  While a banana split is usually made with ice cream, these are made with pudding, making them last a little longer, be a little neater, and making them completely portable. And what makes them so amazing? Well besides the ingredients, which are fresh and delicious, there’s the jar! You can use any jar you have, whether it be from a long gone condiment or canning jar. I have a lot of canning jars in my house so canning jars were a perfect fit for me. They have a tight fitting lid, so you can pop the dessert in lunch box and take it with you to work, giving you a sweet ending to the perfect lunch break. Another bonus is portion control. You can use a smaller size jar and know when you get to the end, you have had a perfect little dessert without too many calories!

Fresh Ingredients for Banana Split in a Jar

I start my Banana Split in a Jar with fresh pudding, usually the instant kind. Fast and easy to make, it’s perfect for Banana Split in a Jar. Sliced bananas, strawberries, and a bit of chocolate sauce fill up the rest of the room in my jars. While pineapple is a common topping on a banana split, the juiciness makes it not suitable for this dish. But, if you could find pineapple preserves, that would be perfect. If you are serving these adorable desserts at home, you can top your Banana Split in a Jar with fresh whipped cream and a cherry. I found the whipped cream goes flat though if you’re taking it to work. Anyway you make these, they’re a delicious little dessert an adorable little jar.
