Some Bunny Loves You Pancakes

20130330-091748.jpg

This morning I was in an Easter mood, so I decided to make the girls some bunny pancakes. They were easy & cute.

1. Make your favorite pancake batter.
2. Use a small measuring cup to drizzle the batter onto the griddle in a bunny shape. I made a large oval for the body, a smaller oval for the head, and one long pointy ear.
3. Cook the pancake completely and remove from the griddle.
4. Transfer to a plate and add the mini-marshmallow tail. I used some melted chocolate chips to “glue” it in place.
5. I added a melted chocolate eye, and a slice of Annie’s Pink Lemonade Fruit Snacks as the nose.

These are not super complicated, but it made my girls giggle on this snugly Saturday morning.

Happy Easter!

Fantabulous Frozen Ice Cream Casserole

So, I have a daughter that does not like cake…I will blame that genetic mishap on my husband’s side. Luckily, her birthday is in June, so ice cream is a good stand in for her birthday celebration. On her actual birthday we did a sundae bar, but she wanted something different for her party with her friends. Fantabulous Frozen Ice Cream Casserole was perfect!

Imagine layers of cookie, ice cream, whipped cream, chocolate syrup, and caramel…mmm!

This fantabulous treat is amazingly simple.

Ingredients:
12-15 ice cream sandwiches
1 large tub of whipped topping
Chocolate syrup
Caramel syrup

Preparation:

Layer the bottom of a casserole dish with ice cream sandwiches. You may need to cut them into pieces to fit the edges and odd spaces.

Repeat the steps above, starting with the ice cream sandwiches, then whipped topping, and syrup. Finally, take a knife and drag it across the top in alternating directions to create the pattern on top.

Freeze for at least an hour before serving.

There are many varieties of ice cream sandwiches. Feel free to be creative. We have used birthday cake flavored sandwiches before. You can also switch out the syrups for other flavors or add chopped nuts, sprinkles, or candy to make it your own!
