Prepare for the release of AVENGERS: Infinity War with these super cute and easy Hulk Rice Krispie Treats. Make them for a birthday party or just to enjoy a movie screening.This post contains affiliate links. Thank you for your support.
Follow the recipe and instruction below from the recipe card. It’s super easy. Just make a batch of Rice Krispie treats and color them green. This post shows how easy it is.Allow them to set and cut into rectangles. If you’re using the recommended 9×9” pan, you should get about 6 treats. Melt your coating chocolate with the coconut oil. The coconut oil will make the coating chocolate a great shine. If you don’t have it, don’t worry about it. Dip one end into the purple and allow it to set.Dip the other end into the brown candy melts and then dip straight into the brown Jimmie sprinkles. Use your black food gel and create the eyebrows by drawing straight lines pointing inward to each other. Use the same gel and add them to the candy eyes and adhere them on the Hulk Rice Krispie Treats. These are the perfect treat to have for an Avenger party or even your biggest Hulk fan. I can’t wait for Avengers: Infinity War to be released into theaters.

candy decorating eyes
1/2cupdark brown sprinkles
1/2cupdark brown candy melts
3teaspoonscoconut oil, divided
1 1/2cupspurple candy melts
3drops Kelly Green food coloring
black ready-made decorating frosting
Coat a 9x9" square pan with 2 tablespoons of butter and set aside.
In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt 3 tbsp butter and add all of your marshmallows. Stir until marshmallow is completed melted.
Color marshmallow mix with green food coloring and add rice cereal. Mix until thoroughly combined.
Evenly pat your cereal treats to the base of your coated pan. You can use a piece of wax paper to smooth it out (and so that your hands don’t get too sticky).
Allow for it to set (about one hour) and cut into rectangles. Line a baking sheet with wax paper.
Microwave your purple candy melts and 2 tsp of coconut oil in 30-second intervals until melted. Dip the bottom of each of your cereal treats (about ¼ of the way up) and set on the lined baking sheet.
Microwave your black candy melts and 1 tsp of coconut oil in 30-second intervals until melted. Dip the top of each of your cereal treats and add sprinkles. This will act as the Hulk’s disheveled hair.
Using your black buttercream, stick on the candy eyes on the green portion of the cereal treats. Draw black buttercream lines above the candy eyes – these will act as the Hulk’s angry eyebrows.
Okay, I know that this is a huge promise that not too many deliver on but seriously, I’ve been told, and I know, that these are some of the best of the best. This chocolate chip cookie recipe is one that my Grandma has been using for years and I guess I should ask her where she got it from.
These are chewy on the first, second, third, fourth, okay you get it, day. The trick is obviously keep them in Ziploc bag. If you like a crispy cookie, these can be your thing too. Just cook for 1-2 minutes longer and don’t store it in the bag the first day. They don’t get overly dry, and they are just heaven! Customize the ingredients to your liking.
The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies Ever!

These chocolate chip cookies are the best you’ll ever have.
1cupbutter flavored shortening
1cupchocolate chips, your choice
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Cream together your shortening and your sugars. Beat until it is light and fluffy.
Add your eggs one at a time and mix until it is combined.
Add your vanilla and water.
Add your dry ingredients and mix until the dough has come together.
With a spatula, stir in your chocolate chips. If you want the addition of nuts, this is the time to add them.
Use a scoop and place dough on parchment lined baking sheets.
Bake for 10-12 minutes or until it is golden on the edges. Transfer to a cooling rack and enjoy.
Combine your Crisco and sugars in a mixing bowl and cream together until it is fluffy. This to me is the all important step. If this step isn’t right then the cookies will be a little weird. FYI, that is a cookie term.If you like the addition of walnuts or any kind of nut to you cookie, add it. I think that’s what makes this recipe so great. You can add anything to these chocolate chip cookies and they’ll be absolutely delicious.
I line my cookie sheets with my Silpat and scoop out the dough with my ice cream scoop. These don’t spread too far because of the shortening so a lot can fit on a sheet tray. Bake at 350 for 9 minutes, a little longer or shorter if you desire.
When you remove them from the oven, let them cool on the tray for 2 minutes and then transfer them to a cooling rack. You can thank me later!

Here’s my recipe, some delicious Christmas Molasses Ginger Cookies! Who doesn’t love these warm spices during the fall months? These are always so good with a tall glass of ice cold milk. The trick to getting them flat is to push your cookies down before they’re in the oven so they can be pretty flat or else you’ll just get a big ball of cookie!

There is nothing more warming than the tastes of chiles. Warm your palette with this delicious anaheim chile and cheddar cheese cornbread recipe.
I love soup on a cold day and I don’t know anyone who doesn’t. Potato soups are some of my favorite and Idahoan® Steakhouse® Soups makes some of the best powdered soup mix I’ve tried. I like to pair it with this delicious and easy cornbread. The trick is to roast the pepper beforehand. For an extra kick, leave the seeds in.If you don’t want to roast the pepper, that is just fine. The easy substitute is just a small can of green chiles that you can pick up for less than a $1. The reason I love Idahoan Steakhouse Soups is because you can get homemade, slow-cooked flavor in 5 minutes. I don’t know about you but I’m always looking for ways to help me save time now that I have children.Idahoan Steakhouse Soups come in 4 varieties; Loaded Potato, Creamy Potato(pictured), Cheddar Broccoli and Cheddar Potato. They use real, red Idaho potatoes with flavorful seasonings and rich cheeses to provide a creamy taste in every spoonful – and all you have to do is add water. Make this delicious chile and cheddar cheese cornbread to serve alongside this delicious soup. Here is the recipe.

MongolianBeef is one of my favorite Asian recipes. Create this dish using P.F. Chang’s Home Menu® sauces and have it become one of your favorite recipes too.
Not only is Chinese food one of the easiest cuisines to master, it’s also one of the tastiest. You just need the right ingredients and the right tools. Lucky for us we can buy this P.F. Chang’s Mongolian Sauce at our nearest Walmart store in the Asian aisle. Try this recipe to create the perfect authentic cuisine made easy.Slice your meat against the grain to get the most tender bite. What does slicing it against the grain mean? When you look at your cut of meat, you’ll see the lines of the grain. Lay the piece of meat so the grain goes left to right. You’ll now cut your meat vertically so that the the grain is short. After you’ve sliced your meat, throw it into a zipper bag with 2 tablespoons cornstarch and about a 1/2 cup of the P.F. Chang’s Home Menu® Mongolian Sauce. Allow it to marinate for at least an hour. You’re now going to want to fry it in some oil. I used a small sauce pan with about a 1/4” of oil. Add small amounts of meat at a time and cook them to get a crust on the meat. After partially cooking your meat, place it on a plate to the side. Preheat a large sauté pan and add all your meat along with your green onions. Add in a cup of your P.F. Chang’s Home Menu® Mongolian Sauce and turn the burner on high. Bring your P.F. Chang’s Home Menu® Mongolian Sauce to a boil and continually stir. Allow the sauce to reduce and serve. This should take around 4-5 minutes.I made the perfect Jasmine Rice with my pressure cooker. Just add equal parts water and rice. Cook on low pressure for 12 minutes and do a natural release. Serve your Mongolian Beef alongside the rice and enjoy.
P.F. Chang’s Home Menu® sauces come in many varieties that can be customized to your own personal taste. Try the Teriyaki, Kung Pao or Sesame with any meat and you have the perfect authentic cuisine made easy to serve your family straight from home. Check out more recipes and inspiration here.

I love cashew chocolate clusters but it’s even easier in your Crock Pot. Make this delicious white chocolate cashew Halloween crock pot candy today!This post may contain affiliate links.
This recipe was so easy. We’ve all seen Crock Pot candy but this is a new twist on it. I’m so excited to be joining the ladies at Simple Simon for their Slow Cooker Spooktacular series. Head to the bottom of the post to find out how you can win one of your very own!Supplies
First, place your whole cashews in the Crock Pot. Then place the white almond bark on top. Then add your bag of white chocolate chips. Don’t stir just yet! Place your Crock Pot on low and cook it for about an hour. After an hour, go ahead and give it and stir. Some people will say to let it go for another hour but that burnt mine the first time. Just stir it until the chocolate is melted after that first initial hour and then scoop them.
Use an ice scream scoop or just two spoons and place it on some parchment paper to set.
While your chocolate is still warm, sprinkle your Halloween sprinkles on top. I created these fun candy boxes with my Cricut Maker and here is the link to the Design Space file if you want led to make your own on any Cricut. The paper is from My Minds Eye. My word of advice and something I learned the hard way ?, line your Crock Pot with some cling film or place something as a barrier if you have a hot spot. My hot spot is on one particular side about 2” up. I burned the candy that was in that area but I was also able to salvage a lot of it too.
This recipe can be customized for any holiday but Halloween is one of my favorites. It’s perfect as fall neighbor gifts or add Christmas sprinkles and pass them out then. Head here to Simple Simon to win your very own slow cooker. Good luck!
This Banana Cream Pie recipe is a delight with chocolate ganache and homemade Bahlsen Leibniz Biscuit crust. This post is sponsored by Cost Plus World Market and all opinions are my own. Read to the end so you can enter to win the Holiday Getaway sweepstakes.This post contains affiliate links.
This recipe is a labor of love and it’s well worth the time and effort. I got most of the ingredients from Cost Plus World Market in their baking product section minus the Bahlsen biscuits that I grabbed in the cookie and cake aisle. You’re going to want to start with preparing your pudding. Take your pudding packets and place them in a saucepan. Add your sugar and milk and heat it on medium heat. Before it started thickening, I added one pureed banana for flavor. You can whisk the pudding by hand but it may end up clumpy while it cools so I recommend using a handheld mixer.Once your pudding has thickened, transfer it to a cool bowl and cover the top with some cling film. Place it directly on the pudding to avoid a skin forming. Let it set in the fridge for 2 hours.Next is your crust (and the best part), take a package of Balshen Liebetz Butter Cookies and pulse them to a crumb. Melt your butter and add your cookie crumbs along with the sugar and mix. Place it in a pie tin and bake for 5-7 minutes until golden.Set it aside and allow it to cool. Now let’s make the ganache. Heat up your cream in a small saucepan and pour it over your Guittard Chocolate Chips. Cover it for 5 minutes and then stir until it’s all combined. If your chocolate starts to cool before it’s incorporated into the cream, pop it in the microwave for 15 seconds at a time.Pour 1/8-1/4 cup of chocolate ganache over your cookie crust. You want to then swirl the pie pan so that the ganache covers the sides of the crust. You want just a light coating of the ganache. Refrigerate for 15 minutes so it can solidify.Remove the crust from the fridge and thinly slice two bananas. You’ll want to place those slices directly onto the ganache. Next, add the pudding to the top of the banana slices. Place some cling film over the pudding and chill until you’re ready to serve.
Once you’re ready to serve your delicious Banana Cream Pie, add freshly whipped cream to the top. Make it even more decadent and add some banana chips for a little added texture.
Yum! You’ve got a delicious Banana Cream Pie recipe that your family will rave about for years.

Banana Cream Pie Recipe
Created by Lindsay on September 12, 2017
1cupGuittard Milk Chocolate Chips
1packageBahlsen Butter Biscuits
1/4cupbanana chips, optional
Preheat oven to 375. Pulse your Bahlsen Butter Biscuits to crumbs. Mix with your sugar and melted butter. Press into a 9" pie pan and bake for 5-7 minutes, until golden brown. Set aside to cool.
Prepare your packaged pudding according to package directions. Before the mixture comes to a boil, add in your pureed banana. Stir well and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
Heat your cream on medium heat until hot, pour over your chocolate chips and cover for 5 minutes. Mix well and set aside for 15 minutes.
Once your biscuit crust is cool, pour about a 1/4 cup of ganache over the top. Swirl your crust so that the ganache covers the side of the crust. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
After your ganache has set, place the sliced bananas over the ganache. Add the pudding on top of the bananas and refrigerate until you're ready to serve.
Mix your sugar and heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Spread or pipe the whipped cream on top of the pudding and place the banana chips for extra decoration. Serve along side the leftover ganache. This will stay well in your fridge for a day but it's best to prepare it the day of because the bananas may turn.
