Milk and Cookie Lover's Favorite Invention

Being the avid cookie connoisseur that I am, when I saw this little plastic hook on Pinterest, I immediately started hyperventilating. Oreos happen to be my favorite cookie, and this little helper hook to make dunking easier is ingenious. Lay Oreo on top of the hook and it creates a stand you can dunk your cookie for as long as your heart desires without dropping it or freezing your fingers off! Cookies and milk are my favorite meal of all-time, so I will definitely be looking for this in stores.

Cake Batter Pancakes :D

Cake Batter Pancakes with Sugar Glaze

Today on Pinterest, I found a combonation of two of my favorite foods of all time!….pancakes and birthday cake! Together, they make cake batter pancakes. 🙂 To make, all this requires is yellow cake batter, and a few ingredients needed to help them rise. Add sprinkles to your batter to add color to the recipe!

Cake Batter Pancakes:

makes about 12 pancakes

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour

2/3 cup yellow cake mix

1 tablespoon sugar

3/4 teaspoon baking powder

pinch of salt

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1-2 cups milk (I used vanilla almond milk)

assorted sprinkles

Combine flour, cake mix, baking powder, sugar and salt in a bowl and mix. Add 1 cup of milk, egg and vanilla extract and stir until smooth. You want the batter to look like regular pancake batter; not too thin, not too thick. This will vary greatly on the brand of cake mix you use. Start with 1 cup of milk and add more if needed. I suggest a small taste test as well to see if the pancakes are flavored enough.

Preheat a skillet on medium heat (I use an electric grilled and turn it to 250 degrees). Fold desired amount of sprinkles into batter. Pour batter in 1/4 cup measurements onto skillet and let cook until bubbles form on top, about 2-3 minutes. Flip and cook for 1 minute more. Serve with vanilla glaze.
Glaze

1 cup powdered sugar

1/2 tablespoon milk

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

assorted sprinkles

Mix milk, extract and powdered sugar until glaze forms. You may need to add a little more sugar or water/milk to reach desired consistency. Mix into glaze and drizzle on pancakes.

….SHOUT OUT to my best friend!! Friends since babies, and she happens to love me enough to read my web design 1 blog, love you maddie! :*

Cookie Cups for ice cream sundaes

Cookies happen to be my favorite food group, so when I found this picture on pinterest, I instantly loved it.   

Take a muffin pan and flip it upside down. Wrap the baking cup with cookie dough and bake at normal cookie-making temperatures. When it’s done, you are left with cookie cup molds that can be used to hold ice cream or fruit!
