Triple chocolate ice cream cake with dark chocolate ice cream, Oreo crumble, and a brownie crust!

This recipe is a deliciously dark chocolate Brownie Crunch Ice Cream Cake that takes me back to my childhood. Back in the day, my mom would stop by our small town Dairy Queen to pick up an ice cream cake for a special occasion. She would serve it up to her (adorable) children, and then we would celebrate! Dairy Queen filled their ice cream cake with some sort of crunchy

Pretty in Pink Summer Salad with cream cheese and marshmallows.

Beach days, pool parties, boat trips, and barbecues are what Florida living is all about. When summertime weather heats up, you’ve got to find ways to cool down.

Caramel Macchiato Brownies with Dark Chocolate Espresso

These Caramel Macchiato Brownies are filled with Hershey’s Special Dark Cocoa and real ground espresso. They’re dark, bold, and rich. Just how I like my man.

A Birthday Crownie is half cake, half brownie; two favorites in one! This Birthday Crownie is made with Ghirardelli Dark Chocolate brownie mix and Betty Crocker Super Moist

7-Up Salad with lime jell-o and marshmallows.

This retro, family-friendly 7-Up Salad dessert recipe was passed along to me by my dear mother-in-law. So, Gloria, we thank you for adding your special touch of sweetness into our world! sweet. To clarify, my husband demanded (for years) that I learn how to make this recipe which he grew up eating during the holidays. The lime jello, white marshmallow whip, and red cherries make this a beautiful Christmas side dish which also
