Minnie Mouse Cake

I made Minnie Mouse with a Mickey Mouse pan. All you need to do is add eyelashes and bow. Below is a picture before they were added.

Halloween Cookies

Eyeball and spider cookies. I may have had too much fun drawing on these cookies.

I also made some with everyone's name on Halloween.

I found these bags a few years ago on clearance. I finally got the chance to use them to give some friends some cookies.

Here are the cookies that my daughter made.

Toasted Marshmallow Topped Brownies

Bake brownies according to recipe. Sprinkle marshmallows over brownies, while they are still warm, and cover with foil or a sheet pan. I have a silicone pan cover that I use. Here is a link for it.

In about 10 minutes the marshmallows will be warm and melty, like picture above. 

Next spread out marshmallows.

Now the fun part! I used my kitchen torch to toast the marshmallows. If you don't have a torch then you can put your brownies under the broiler to toast them. Just keep a close eye on them because they will burn easily. 

I have a few darker spots because I started the marshmallows on fire a few times. Oops 😁

I then decided to sprinkle some mini chocolate chips on top.

As the chocolate chips melted they started to sink into the marshmallows. As we were eating them I thought I could have also sprinkled graham cracker crumbs on these, yum! I guess I will save that for next time.

Peppermint Patty Frosting

So today is my son's 2nd birthday! 

Where did these last two years go? I have no idea. We are having a party for him on the weekend but since my husband will be home for dinner tonight I felt we should celebrate with just the four of us. So I decided to make a little 6 inch cake for him. I was trying to think of something to make it a little different then just a chocolate cake.
As I am drinking my coffee with peppermint patty creamer.

I was melting peppermint patty wax sprinkles in my melter.(if you are interested in these my friend Jenny sells them. )

So this all got me thinking about our candy stash for s'mores and my son always picks out peppermint pattys. I just happened to have some chopped up from another recipe that I had made. So I made a peppermint patty frosting.

Yum! I tinted it blue and frosted a chocolate cake. It's not a nice clean smoothe cake because of the chunks in the frosting but it is going to be delicious!
