EPIC, EASY, & EFFORTLESS DESSERTS

I don’t even know how long it’s been but here’s for a food packed post to have made that wait worthwhile. I have all these pictures accumulating and just waiting for their moment to shine in a post. Most of my baking is done for occasions like a friend’s birthday or if I am going to a dinner party. Oh and can’t forget my cravings either haha. You know, especially when you see an epic mouthwatering dessert that you just must taste. At what better than recreating it to your liking? Or even when you go to a restaurant and have one of their specialities & think of how nice it would be to be able to make it at home for a midnight snack or what not. Not only that, when you bake you know EXACTLY what it going in your food. It for sure puts all those worries about mystery ingredients to rest.

Looking for something quick to make or just ideas in general? Check out these three easy to make assorted desserts! IMG_2250 Twizzler Chocolate Sandwiches

Mini Chocolate Bundt Cakes topped with Glazed Strawberries

-Bake your favorite cake in the mini bundt cake pans (found mine at World Market)

-Make a chocolate ganache to cover it, a combo of about 9 oz of chopped chocolate with 1 cup of heavy cream

-Top it off with a strawberry dipped in a fruit glaze (bought the glaze already made in the grocery store fruits section) IMG_2044 Chocolate Drizzled Pecan Pie with Raspberries

-My ALLTIME favorite pie recipe because you simply mix all the ingredients together and throw them in a pie shell (product is too epic and leaves your taste buds feeling out of this world!)

-You can find the recipe for the pecan pie in a previous blog post of mine here

Mini Chocolate Glazed Strawberry Bundt Cakes

Wowwww. So just typed up this blog post but it didn’t save. Oh well, anyways… I just bought these mini bundt cake pans and I’ve been so obsessed with them! We were having dinner at a family friend’s home so my mom asked me to make some dessert. Perfect opportunity! Guess I’ll just make some bundt cakes. For the recipe below I used my favorite chocolate cake- Hershey’s Perfectly Chocolate Cake found here. I didn’t know what to put in the hole of the bundt cake so I tried mini chocolate chips, but they were too dark. To brighten it up a bit I then tried this raspberry jam, but the colors still didn’t look right. In the end, I decided that what I needed was- FRUIT! The bright colors complement the darkness of the chocolate perfectly. I originally wanted to use raspberries, but the grocery store was out of them :( Guessed I’d just have to do with strawberries. I got some and then saw some strawberry glaze on my way out so I just bought that as well.

Homemade Glaze

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups confectioner’s sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of butter
  • 2 white chocolate baking squares
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup milk

Directions:

Mix together all the ingredients and pour onto each bundt cake in a circular fashion. If the glaze is too runny, add more confectioner’s sugar to it. You can adjust the ingredients based on what you have available (it is usually made only with the sugar and milk but I added the other ingredients myself).
