30 Before 30 Progress

15. Make three new desserts.
I wanted to add this challenge to my 30 Before 30 List because I tend to find myself making the same things over and over. I figured if I made it a mission to make at least three new desserts, that I would be adding to my already good list of desserts and could make them my specialties. Well after buying ingredients and whipping them up, two were a success and one was a complete fail. Let's jump right in!

1. Peanut Butter Pie. Success!
I would love to share the recipe with all of you but it came from my mother and she would kill me if I shared it to the world. I can tell you though, it does include a gram cracker crust and lots of peanut butter.

2. Vanilla Ice Cream Cake. Success!
The ice cream cake ingredients include:
1 quart of vanilla ice cream
family size pack of vanilla oreos
Sprinkles
2 bottles of caramel syrup
1 tub of cool whip
 
How to make it: Crush the oreos into a fine layer and place in 9x13 pan. Melt caramel over the oreos and freeze for 30 minutes. Remove pan from freezer and then add the ice cream evenly over top. Freeze again for 30 minutes. Remove from freezer and then add another layer of caramel and freeze again for 30 minutes. Remove from freezer and spread the entire tub of cool whip over top. Add sprinkles and place back in freezer for an hour.


3. Fruity Pebble Cookies. Fail!
Ingredients:
1-3.4 oz vanilla pudding mix
1 cup of white chocolate chips
1 cup of fruity pebbles
sugar
flour
butter
baking powder
 
I followed the directions exactly like they asked. However, these cookies turned out so awful they were not even edible. I literally scraped them into the trash. 
So even though one of the desserts was a complete fail. Clearly. I was able to make three new desserts and cross this one off my list! I've got two desserts that people loved and maybe I can keep experimenting to get a good third one!

Oh how I wish you could share the peanut butter recipe with us! That sounds yummy.

I bet the fruity pebbles would work better if you tried to replace them in rice krispie treats. Yum!

The vanilla ice cream cake looks absolutely delicious! Especially since I tend to prefer golden oreos over the normal ones.
