The Thursday Thirteen – July 10, 2014

I’m all about weird desserts lately, maybe because I’m mourning the disappearance of the “Blow Your Kilt Off” Samoas Ice Cream I made last week for the 4th. I don’t normally crave ice cream, but this batch of frozen goodness somehow seemed to change all that. I’m excited to share the recipe with you next week. Since I’m not ready to whip up another batch right now, looking at these sweet treats will have to satisfy me.

1

Pop Rocks Truffle from How Sweet It Is

Think tingly chocolate. Who wouldn’t love that?

Campfire Marshmallow Cookies from Hoopla Palooza

It’s desserts like these that make me wish I had kids. Well, not really. Maybe it just makes me want to borrow one for an hour or two.

Whisky and Pumpernickel Ice Cream from The Littlest Anchovy

This ice cream gets my mind working. I can’t even imagine, which means I’m going to have to make it.

Gender Reveal Cupcakes from The Cake Blog

These cupcakes make me wish I were throwing someone a baby shower. Once again, not really, I just want to make these for some lucky soon-to-be mama, and not have to actually go to their party.

    Really sorry I missed out on that ice cream! 🙂 the cactus cakes could be fun to watch guests gawk at! Campfire treats look like fun too….

    • I’m making another batch, maybe if you’re really nice I’ll share!

  • I really enjoy these posts and they always blow my mind but they give me a sweet tooth that I don’t normally have… haha! 🙂

    • Sorry about that! It’s easier for me to look at pictures of desserts and think about making them, instead of actually making them and eating them!

  • Yum, these all look so cool! I love the idea of ‘tingly chocolate’ : )

    • I know, now the search is on for the best flavor of pop rocks!

  • Probably shouldn’t read this while trying to loose weight… LOL. Wanna make those now xD

  • Oh my gosh, these — every single one — look wonderful! Yum!

    • Already planning ice cream donuts with neighbors for a Saturday in the near future!
