So in light of my wonderful postpartum body struggle, it only seems fitting that I read as many yummy dessert recipes on the internet as possible right? I mean there's no calories in a picture:) I thought I'd share a few of the yummiest looking ones with you all in case you are in a baking mood:) And if you are and feeling like inviting me over for a taste test, all the better!
PEANUT BUTTER RIBBON CAKE:
If you think chocolate and peanut butter are a to die for combo like me this is for you!
This is acutally a Kraft recipe, so should be pretty easy!
CRUSH 8 cookies; mix with butter. Press onto bottom of foil-lined 9x5-inch loaf pan.
MIX next 4 ingredients with mixer until well blended. Whisk in 3 cups COOL WHIP; spoon 1/2 cup into small bowl. Blend in melted chocolate. Spoon half the remaining cream cheese mixture over crust; top with layers of chocolate mixture and remaining cream cheese mixture.
FREEZE 4 hours or until firm. Invert onto plate. Remove foil, then re-invert dessert onto serving platter so crumb layer is on bottom. Coarsely break remaining cookies. Top dessert with remaining COOL WHIP and broken cookies.
