Chocolate Boston Cream Pie Trifle

Today I made a Chocolate Boston Cream Pie Trifle! One of my favorite desserts from when I was growing up was a Boston Cream Pie. I was always fascinated with the fact that it was really a cake, but called a pie. Why? No one could tell me. I have since learned that the Boston Cream Pie was originally made in colonial times and the colonists used to bake cakes in pie tins because most people didn't have cake pans, only pie pans. Makes sense! So, fast forward to 2014. I decided to put a slight twist on the traditional and make my Boston Cream Pie with chocolate cake. Actually, I used a Dark Chocolate Fudge Cake. I transformed the pie into a trifle, making it something a little special, and I think it works. Let me know what you think!

Bunny Bark!

It's almost time to fill the Easter Baskets, so I'm glad I got this easy to make, Bunny Bark to you! Everyone would love getting this Bunny Bark in their Basket. It's colorful, fun, and is a treat that everyone loves. It's full of  marshmallow bunnies, pretzel bunnies, candy coated sixlets and sprinkles! You might even have most of the ingredients already in your pantry!

Mr. McGregor's Marshmallow Carrots

These Marshmallow Carrots are not the ones that Peter Rabbit was munching on in Mr. McGregor's garden, but I think you will like them. You start with homemade marshmallow, cut out some carrots with a cookie cutter, add some orange sanding sugar, add some licorice greens, and you have a marshmallow carrot similar to a peep! It would have been fun if these had been growing in Mr. McGregor's garden!

Chocolate Mint Bread Pudding

Spring is in the air and so is mint. Of course chocolate is always in season in my kitchen, so I put the two together to make this decadent Chocolate Mint Bread Pudding. The mint comes from Oreo Mint Fudge Cookies, my newest, yummy addiction. Add semi sweet chocolate chunks, and you have a rich, tasty bread pudding that you can't get enough of.
