Tried- recipe: Nutella No-bake cheesecake

Posted by on Oct 30, 2013 in Desserts, LoaMP, Tried Recipes | 0 comments

I got this recipe from the awesome FB group, what’s cooking good looking. Recipe is super easy and very good. A bit too sweet for me to eat a whole slice, but that’s probably better for me anyways! Lol Recipe: Ingredients: 2 boxes cream cheese 1 can sweetened condensed milk 1-2 tsp vanilla Graham Cramer pie crust (or make your own) 1/2 cup Nutella A couple pieces of ferero rocher Directions: In your mixer, combine cream cheese and condensed milk. Mix on medium for 5 minutes until all combined well. Pour into pie crust and let it settle in fridge for a couple hours. After that, warm Nutella in microwave until a bit liquidy. Pour over cheesecake neatly and add on ferero rocher balls for decoration. Fridge overnight and serve! Share this:ShareFacebookPinterestEmailTwitterPrintLike this:Like...

Posted by on Jul 22, 2013 in Desserts, LoaMP, Tried Recipes | 0 comments

Tried this recipe found here : Chocolate Pudding Dump Cake OMG you have to try this!!!!!!! I usually never use boxed cake mix but this is really good! And the smell!!! TO DIE FOR! and the fact that im not really a chocolate person to begin with should tell you this is an awesome cake! Kid-approved! I added some white chocolate chips for contrast and will try to add nuts to the batter. The batter will be very thick and heavy, so don’t worry! Oh, and i used 2 cups of milk instead of the recommended 1.5 cup. Its pretty awesome with ice cream too. Share this:ShareFacebookPinterestEmailTwitterPrintLike this:Like...
