I love this recipe for several reasons.
1. I have about 9 billion things to do before the holidays and this was the easiest yet.
2. No baking required (I’ve done enough of that!)
3. Easy on the wallet
I just hopped on the Cheesecake Pop bandwagon.
Were headed to Awesomeville.
Don’t miss it – get on this!
No oven required.
Perfect-o for the upcoming summer months…
I think we’re still getting Spring and then Summer in Minne. I mean … it came last year (!?)
And the year before that.
It’s bound to show up this year too, right?!
I wasn’t sure whether to call these 1- sticky, gooey, yummy cheesecake pops or 2- lemon-raspberry cheesecake pops. I went with the later.
You will need:
2 (16 oz.) packages Vanilla CANDIQUIK® Coating
2 (8 oz.) packages Cream Cheese, softened
1 packet (3.4 oz.) Jell-O Lemon Instant pudding/pie filling
1 tsp. Raspberry Extract (optional)
Don’t you love this small treat trend?
Two bites, or even one.
Then we won’t feel so bad for eating
one five of them, right!?
I recently had a friend come up to me and tell me “Cadbury eggs would be awesome!!!”
(wink, wink, hint, hint, nudge, nudge)
So here I am. 27 hours later. Posting about chocolate eggs bursting with a fondant-like filling.
I just had to, for Easter, ya know!?
Even better, I bet you have all this stuff in your pantry.

49 things I’ve learned from my ___ years of existence, in no particular order:
1 Floss. 2 Wear comfortable shoes. 3 Go to the bathroom before you leave. 4 Spend less than you make. 5 Dance. 6 Just because it’s free, doesn’t mean you need it. 7 Master a recipe for something obscenely delicious. 8 Call your grandma. 9 Look both ways before you cross the street. 10 Don’t speed. 11 You will get caught eventually. 12 Give compliments more often. 13 Chocolate is good. 14 Diet pills don’t work. 15 Paying taxes sucks. 16 Coffee with cream is good. 17 Black coffee is gross. 18 learn from your mistakes. 29 Smile. 20 Naps are good. 21 Smell the flowers. 22 It’s the little things. 23 Don’t take things too personal. 24 Go to the doctor. 25 Buy insurance. 26 Write a thank you note. 27 Care. 28 Less is more. 29 Everyone knows more about something than you. 30 Nobody has it all figured out. 31 Go with your gut. 32 Don’t overthink it. 33 Swearing was cool when it was forbidden. 34 Swearing can make you sound dumb. 35 Try something new. 36 Things are not as you remembered as a kid. 37 Life is a solo trip with visitors, some long-term, some not. 38 Foil doesn’t do so well in the microwave. 39 It’s much easier to fall in love than to stay in love. 40 Family is important. 41 Do what makes you happy. 42 Timing can make all the difference. 43 My dryer eats socks. 44 Anyone who judges you by the car you’re driving or the shoes you’re wearing isn’t worth impressing anyways. 45 Zicam (zinc) really does shorten a cold. 46 The store brand jelly is good enough, the store brand ketchup is not. 47 Music is powerful. 48 I was young when I learned thirty eight, no worries. 49 Smiles and yawns are contagious.
None of these really have much to do with what I’m about to share - well, except #13.
Don’t you hate when you have to go back and figure out what 13 was?
#13 with coconut is even better.
