Coconut Lime Oreo Truffles

Oreo cookies are one of those things you will almost always find in our house. We buy the little snack packs in the giant size from Costco to put in lunches and will usually have just a regular package in the house for the random sweet snack. At the store the other day, I saw the new Limeade flavor and knew I had to try them. Of course, as I do with most Oreo flavors, I decided “bake” with them and made coconut lime Oreo truffles using the new flavor.

Yummy...these limeade oreo truffles are no bake and taste a lot like key lime pie!

11 Delicious Milkshakes

So, we had a brief bit of amazing weather over the last weekend where it was actually cool enough for a light sweater in the evenings. I loved every minute of it.  Of course, being summer, it didn’t last long and we are right back to super hot temperatures. When the weather gets that way, I crave cool drinks and icy treats for dessert. Milkshakes are one of my favorite sweet treats during summer and I’ve found 11 delicious milkshakes that you have to try!

Three Ingredient TWIX® Dip

Collective Bias Disclosure

Let’s talk dessert.  I am a total sucker for almost anything sweet. If it has chocolate in it, it might be a little difficult to hold me back.  For parties and BBQs, I love the idea of throwing a few ingredients together to make a yummy dessert dip.  In planning my Memorial Day BBQ this year, I stumbled up TWIX® Bites at Walmart and knew I wanted them in my belly and also to create a TWIX® dip.  The bonus: it is a three ingredient TWIX dip…yep, you only need three things to make it!

This three ingredient TWIX® dip would be perfect for our upcoming BBQ. #EatMoreBites #shop #cbias

S’Mores Chocolate Smoothie with #TruMoo

Thank you to TruMoo for partnering with me on this recipe. As always, all opinions expressed here are my own. This post is an announcement about the new seasonalChocolate Marshmallow Milk that’s in stores this month only! We can’t wait to try it! For this post TruMoo’s Chocolate Milk was used and is available year-round

We got through a lot of milk here in the Just Us Four house.  Like 3+ gallons of milk each week.  Chocolate milk is a hot commodity too because we all love it.  I was in the store the other day and saw that TruMoo now makes Chocolate Marshmallow milk and it totally got me in the mood for milk and cookies.  Even though we are in the middle of the polar vortex, my daughter is still begging for ice cream, milkshakes and other frozen treats so I decided to combine those items and make her a s’mores chocolate smoothie as a treat using the TruMoo Chocolate Marshmallow milk.  Sadly, our store was sold out of the Chocolate Marshmallow flavor but we used the regular chocolate this time around.  I know this recipe will be even more amazing with the Chocolate Marshmallow version!

The Ultimate in No Bake Desserts – Ice Cream Pizza

Thank you to Kizmos for providing some cook’s tools for use in creating this recipe and as a giveaway prize for my readers.  All opinions and thoughts expressed here are my own.

It is H-O-T outside.  With the heat comes the desire to avoid cooking anything…especially if it means turning on an oven.  BUT, summer also brings a lot of picnics, BBQs and get togethers so I bet you’re often still on the hook for a dessert.  How about making the ultimate in no bake desserts: an ice cream pizza?

Boozy Baking: Red Wine Cupcakes with Wine Cream Cheese Frosting

The boozy baking continues here at Just Us Four. I couldn’t just stop with the whoopie pies so I decided to try out some cupcakes too. After all, cupcakes are where my love of boozy baking originated.

After a few {dozen} texts with Liz, I settled on trying red velvet cupcakes first. She was very supportive and assured me that I couldn’t really mess this up. I mean…I was using wine and nothing is bad with wine ;)
