I started a diet last week - did really well in fact - as of yesterday I was down 5 pounds.
So I did what anyone would do after such a great feat...................I ruined it.
But I HAD to.
Really I just HAD to.
Last week I came across an Ice Cream Sandwich cake ( you all probably know about these but I had never heard of them before ) made by Amee at REAL ADVICE GAL and now have seen a ton of them on Pinterest - so I decided to try my hand ................
First of all I love ice cream sandwiches................LOVE them - so this was going to be a win for me whatever I did.
For those of you that haven't tried it yet - TRY IT !!!!!!!!!!!
I made a mini one because it was just for John and myself - but having said that I still ate half of it - which means I had 2 of them.
Ok - here we go
You place 2 ( or 4 if you're a glutton - or as many as you need if you're having company ) on a dish
Then you slather it with whipped cream
Then place chopped walnuts on top of the whipped cream
Suzan yells out - John - have you seen the hammer?
John says - I thought you were making dessert?
Suzan says - I am - and I need the hammer please
John says - WHAT THE HELL DO YOU NEED THE HAMMER FOR? - as he hands it to me
Suzan says - Thank you - now out of my way - in case it slips out of my hand and lands on your head.
I pounded the nuts.
You work with what you've go - YOU can use a kitchen mallet if you're that type of dessert maker - but tools are very interchangeable for me - I once plastered a wall using a kitchen spatula - I'm very resourceful like that lol
Then I placed 2 more sandwiches over the mix
and repeated the whipped cream and walnuts
for finish I drizzled some Hershey's chocolate sauce syrup over it
It took all of 5 minutes to make - ( if I had company over I would have worked on the presentation a little more - but I was drooling too much to worry about it just for the 2 of us )
You can put it in the fridge to " set " if you'd like
But we dug into this baby the second the syrup landed on top
and it was to D.I.E.
John says - That was absolutely fantastic !!!
Suzan says - Thank you !
John says - No - thank YOU
John says - Can't wait to see what you whip up with pliers !
And you know what?
Sometimes that's ok.
Only sometimes, mind you.
Now where are those pliers...................................
Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone !
