or should I wait to go get my cavities filled until I finish off all of the Trader Joe’s goodies first?
17 ounces (hence the name ‘pound plus’) of delicious chocolate with almonds in it.
The packaging sells me everytime….the kettle corn bag is probably the cutest thing I have ever seen.
I only took ONE picture of the fried ice cream. Fail on my part. Partly I didn’t think anyone would want the recipe (SO HAPPY YOU DO) and the other reason was because the process is kind of messy and involves a lot of work with your hands. I already got in trouble for dropping fro-yo into one of the nooks on our DSLR….I wasn’t about to spill corn flake goop onto the camera.
I did get thumbs up from EVERYONE and the family is already making plans for me to make it again….it is a good recipe:)
1 quart vanilla ice cream
1 cup crushed cornflakes
3/4 cup sweetened cocunut flakes
1/4 cup chopped wallnuts
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons sugar
Vegetable oil, for frying
Hot chocolate sauce (not optional)
Whipped cream (not optional)
Form 4 large balls of ice cream and put them on waxed paper and cover with plastic wrap. Freeze 2 hours
In a bowl comine cornflakes, coconut and walnuts…..put into a shallow dish.
Dip ice cream balls in the crumb mixture and freeze for 30 minutes
In a bowl, beat the eggs and sugar. Dip the coated ice cream balls into the mixture, coating completely. Freeze for 1 hour.
Heat oil in a large pot to 400 degrees F. Lower the balls into the oil one at a time until golden brown (about 30 seconds). Remove from oil and put it on a paper towel for a second (to drain excess grease) and then put it in your bowl and decorate it with the best things found in a grocery store (whipped cream and chocolate).
And for your entertainment……Charlie turns into a rag doll when it is bed time. He goes limp and pretends that he can’t hear us call him anymore. It takes two people to lift him up and take him upstairs to a bed. Dogs realy are like people (children in this case) sometimes.
Are you a sucker for packaging……does the way the products packaging make you buy it?
-Yep. Heck, I would probably buy olives if it came in that kettle corn bag.
This one is for my mom…..When you were little did your parents say that they were going to move your bedtime up or down if they were making you go to bed early!?! Did you have a bed time? Do you remember what it was at different ages?
-My mom always threatened to move our bedtime UP and we would be so confused and get excited meaning that she meant we could stay up later when she really meant that we were going to have to go to bed earlier!!
I just remember the school year was around 9 and summer was 10 (until I was 12 years old and would just sneak back into the TV room after they were already asleep).
What are your Friday night plans?
