Easy Pumpkin Cake
Easy Peasy Truffles
One Christmas, I received a box of these from a friend, and a box of Godiva truffles from my boss. Don’t tell him, but the Easy Peasy Truffles were my favorite! They’re so simple to make, it’s unbelievable – only three ingredients! These Easy Peasy Truffles are sure to impress.
This Party Ice Cream is a great choice for a friend or family member who doesn’t live hours away!
Tip: Freeze the ice cream completely at your house, then transfer it into a cooler for transport. This is SO much better than store-bought!
King Cake – Not Just for Mardi Gras!
The best part? This recipe makes TWO cakes – make one to take to your friend and enjoy the other at home. This treat freezes well, if you have enough willpower not to eat it immediately!
