Homemade Disney-Pixar Incredibles Rice Krispie Treats

June 15, 2018

I have waited 14 long years for the release of Disney-Pixar’s Incredibles II movie. I know every child is going to want to have an Incredibles Party this year so I created these Incredibles Rice Krispie Treats. This post contains affiliate links. Thank you for your support.

Make your Incredibles Party pop with these easy Incredibles Rice Krispie Treats. They pair perfectly with my Incredibles Oreos that I made a few weeks ago and just in time for the new Incredibles II movie release.


Create these amazing Disney-Pixar Incredibles Rice Krispie Treats. Perfect for an Incredibles party for any superhero. #DisneySMMC #Incredibles #DisneyFoodGather all your ingredients and set them aside. Melt together the butter and marshmallows and then remove from the heat. You can use your microwave as well but I like to make them on the stovetop.After you’ve melted the butter and marshmallows, add the cereal and the red food coloring. Give it a good mix and place them into a 8×8″ square pan. You can line it with parchment or use some non-stick vegetable oil spray.Making the I’s is something that I did with the Incredibles Oreo recipe. Just use some fondant and set them aside. You’ll want to spread the black icing just like the Incredibles Oreos and you’re more than welcome to just use yellow icing if you’re confident in your icing skills. That’s not something I am great at so I use the fondant.Create these amazing Disney-Pixar Incredibles Rice Krispie Treats.

Thor Cupcakes With An Easy Recipe

May 17, 2018

Make these easy Thor Cupcakes all from an easy cake mix. Celebrate the AVENGERS: Infinity War movie release with these super cute cupcakes. This post contains affiliate links. Thank you for your support.

Who has seen the new AVENGERS: Infinity War movie? Better question, who hasn’t? Thor was a huge part of the movie and so I decided to make these Thor cupcakes to go along with my Hulk Rice Krispie Treats or these easy Avengers Cupcake Toppers I made with my Cricut.These Thor cupcakes are incredibly easy to make. Just use store-bought Red Velvet cake mix and follow the directions on the box to make them. One box should yield 24 cupcakes. Allow them to cool completely before adding any frosting or decorations. 
Mix your butter, powdered sugar, milk and cocoa powder together using an electric mixer or hand mixer. Beat until it is smooth and then add in your red gel food coloring. Having gel food coloring is important because it is intense in the color and the taste is almost non-existent. When you have red food coloring, sometimes it tastes metallic but I like the gel food coloring because you can’t taste it and it takes less of the coloring to get the color your want.Use a piping bag and a star tip to get the grooves when piping. I like to place my piping bag into a cup before I load up the frosting. It helps make it more stable and I’m able to keep the top of my bag clean. Next, you’ll make the top of Thor’s hammer for the cupcake topper. Use some fondant, mix in 2 drops of black gel food coloring and soften it by playing with it in your hands. The heat from your hands will make the fondant moldable. You may want to wear gloves so the gel color doesn’t stain your hands. Mold them into rectangles and lay them to the side. Mix the silver
luster dust with some water or vodka and paint Thor’s hammer to get them shiny.Next, break the pretzel sticks into the desired size of the base of the hammer and place them inside the middle of the fondant hammer. Place it on top of your cupcake and now you’ve made the perfect Thor cupcakes.

Create these amazing Thor cupcakes for your next Avengers party!

Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Keyword: avengers, cupcake
Servings: 24 cupcakes
  • 1 box Red Velvet Cake Mix + Ingredients to make them
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
  • 8 cups powdered sugar
  • 4 tbsp milk
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 7-8 drops red gel food coloring
  • 24 mini pretzel sticks
  • 4-6 ounces white fondant
  • 2 drops black gel food coloring
  • 3-5 tbsp cornstarch
  • silver food luster dust
  1. Prepare your red velvet mix according to the box’s directions (they usually yield 24 cupcakes). Allow to cool on rack before decorating.

  2. Using a stand mixer, start beating butter and slowly add confectioners’ sugar. Add milk and mix on high until your buttercream has formed. In terms of consistency, you’ll want it to form stiff peaks.

  3. Add cocoa and red food coloring to the buttercream and continue mixing on high until it is completely colored. Using a piping bag, frost each cupcake.

  4. Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Roll your fondant into ½ inch spheres (you’ll want to make 24 of them) and then shape into rectangles. Place each one on lined baking sheet. (You will want to dust your fingers with cornstarch once in a while to prevent them from sticking on your hands)

  5. Brush each fondant piece with silver luster. Insert a pretzel stick at the bottom of each one (you may have to break off a piece of the pretzel stick if they are too long). Place carefully on each cupcake.

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.[recipe id=”6088″]

The BEST Chocolate Chip Cookies EVER!

February 16, 2018

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 to 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.
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 your 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!

Anaheim Chile and Cheddar Cheese Cornbread served with Idahoan Steakhouse Soup

December 11, 2017

Thank you Idahoan® Steakhouse® Soups for sponsoring this post. Stay warm with this winter with a cozy bowl of soup!

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.[recipe id=”5163″]I was selected for this opportunity as a member of CLEVER and the content and opinions expressed here are all my own.

I share with you this Cars 3 candy popcorn recipe.

No one is more excited for Cars 3 than Mr Malakai. He loved the preview but he was just too small to enjoy it in theatres. He now lives to watch movies.

Just find any combination you like to make this yummy candy popcorn recipe your own. We had the opportunity to head to the Cars 3 Road to the Races event and we had a lot of fun as a family.
