Silly Squids

This was actually taken a while ago but I forgot to post. Hanna had a play date with a few of her friends. We made silly squids for lunch. I cut turkey hotdog into thirds and poked through whole wheat pasta. Let them boil until tender. The kids thought they were really fun.

Back to Blogging and Ice Cream Sundae Brownies

I have been MIA to the blogging world and have been really missing it. So I have made it a priority to get organized and get back to blogging! For Sunday baking I found this recipe on one of my favorite blogs the Picky Palate. The brownies turned out really good, how could they not when ice cream is baked into them (like they did not already have enough calories). They have an extra gooyiness to them. I paired them with the ice cream that was used in the recipe. This will definatley be my go to brownie recipe.

Ice Cream Sundae Brownies

1 box brownie mix
2 eggs
1/2 c canola or vegatable oil
heaping 1/2 cup of you favorite ice cream (I used Ben and Jerry's Triple Caramel Chunk)
1/4 c of hot fudge topping or I used caramel topping (chilled)
1 1/2 c of chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl mix the brownie mix, 2 eggs and oil until combined......and thick. Do not add the water to the brownie mix. Scoop in ice cream, chocolate chips, and ice cream topping. Mix until combined. Pour into a foil lined 9x13" baking dish that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Bake for 40-50 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean from center. Let brownies cool for 30 min and remove from baking dish, cut into squares and serve.
