And then there were none......

I finally finished the cookies for baby Pie's first birthday, and her 'smash' cake!
They are super cute, I did better than expected, for my second time. This was the first giant cupcake smash cake I have ever made... Note to self: Big Top cupcake bakeware- BIG TOP PAIN IN THE BUTT.
Tomorrow, I start all the cupcakes. I cannot wait to meet Sara from Unofficial Mom! Pictures are below....The theme is Winter One-derland! Happy Birthday to sweet Pie!!

Ice Ice go away...

Well I guess my mini outing to the empty Walmart was enough, now they have the main roads closed and 1-20 from our exit down to Atlanta! So, now... Now I am a smidge irritated. Not that I was going anywhere right now, but the thought that I could worked. So... My neighborhood is hard to even get out of now, after the snow somewhat melted then refroze!

Well, here I am, stuck.... AGAIN. And tonight it is supposed to get into the teens, so the stuff the sun melted today, yeah, its sitting in the streets waiting to be refrozen. Ahhh....!!!!!

Baby It's Cold Outside.....

As most of you know by now, it is freezing here! So far today's high is only 22, but to some of you thats pretty warm. My husband and I ventured out last night to the Wal-Mart to return a movie. While we were there I realized that I needed to get some ice cream before THAT was depleated too. It was ridiculous in there! No bread, no milk, no cheese, no frozen pizzas, no sour cream, no cokes, no water, NOTHING.

What in the world are all of these people going to do with some of those things? I didn't realize that snow meant you had to run out and stock up on sour cream. BAHAHAHA.... Anywho. I decided that last night was a good cold night for some brownie sundaes. We usually do pocorn and movie night, but last night was brownie night. Of course, being the great mother that I am, (no laughing) I decided to make them Chocolate Chip cookie dough brownies. How so, easy!

1 box of fudge brownie mix {gasp! yes it was box mix, couldn't run out of eggs & flour, nowhere to buy any ;)}
1 Carton of vanilla ice cream- any kind- we have to use lactose free for our daughter, which is very good.
1 stick of unsalted butter; melted
1/8 cup of granulated white sugar
1/4 & 1/8 of cup of brown sugar (couldn't figure out the measurement that late, sorry)
Mini Chocolate chips or chunks cut up

Make brownies as directed from box; let sit for about 10 minutes. While resting, mix melted butter and both sugars into a bowl on medium speed until fluffy. Chop chocolate if necessary. Plate brownie square onto dish and top with 1 scoop of vanilla ice cream. Spoon sugar mixture over ice cream adn quickly top with chocolate.

NOTE: Because the brown sugar topping is made with butter, once added to ice cream it will harden, not rock hard, but harder than out of the bowl. I smashed mine down a little flat, and it was to die for! You have the chocolate pieces with the hardened brown sugar mixture(like dough) and ice cream and brownie! YUM. Enjoy!

Sorry about the small picture, my camera battery is dead, so I had to upload from my phone.

Snowed In...

We are currently being snowed in, and it is great!!! So, what did you do while snowed in? Please feel free to share any story!
There is nasty ice on the ground and lots of fluffy snow on top, here so far, about 3 inches. Which is HUGE for GA. Anyways, to pass some time, here are some goodies that I madE. Whole Wheat crust turkey pepperoni pizza and peanut butter cup cupcakes!

Now for dessert:
The inside: yes it is smooshed, do you know how hard it is to cut a frozen chocolate topped soft cupcake?!
