S’mores Cups Recipe

Although I try to keep our foods healthy sometimes you just gotta give in. I’m also in total Girl Scout mode today, so these Fluffy No Bake S’mores Cups from In Katrina’s Kitchen got my attention.

This dessert not only looks scrumptious (or is it just me and my love for S’mores?) but it’s a great prep ahead dessert. Perfect for dinner parties.

Just whip the ingredients together, assemble, let it sit in the fridge 3 hours or overnight and serve. If you have kids with Peanut allergies dessert will work out great. You use Biscoff spread in place of peanut butter (Biscoff spread is made from Biscoff cookies and gives that graham cracker taste). It can be found near the peanut butter in most grocery stores.

S’mores Cups Recipe

YIELD: 8 mini dessert cups

PREP TIME: 15 minutes

TOTAL TIME: 3 hours, or overnight

Fluffy S’mores no-bake mousse cups

INGREDIENTS:

8 oz cream cheese, room temperature
4 oz package of chocolate pudding (powder)
2 Cups powdered sugar
1/2 Cup Biscoff spread or Peanut Butter
8 oz tub of Cool Whip
2-3 Tablespoons milk
marshmallows and graham crackers for garnish and layers

DIRECTIONS:

  1. In the bowl of your electric mixer combine cream cheese, powdered sugar, pudding powder, milk, and Biscoff spread.
  2. Fold in Cool Whip
  3. Pipe into cups of any size and garnish with graham crackers and marshmallows. Place halved marshmallows in between layers if desired.
  4. Chill for at least 3 hours or overnight (will become a firmer consistency)

NOTES:

  • You can also make this in a 9×13 dish layered between graham crackers.
  • Biscoff spread provides a hint of graham cracker taste in the dish. You can substitute peanut butter if you do not have Biscoff.

Easy Peasy No-Cook Refrigerator Oatmeal

My Mother-in-Law came to visit a couple of weeks ago and shared with me how she soaks her oatmeal in water overnight. I tired it and liked it so I went to the internet in search of more soaked oatmeal recipes. I found these Refrigerator Oatmeal recipes from http://www.grocerybudget101.com/content.php/611-Easy-Refrigerator-Oatmeal. Can I just say I feel like Jasmine singing a “Whole New World”.
These recipes are great on the budget and very healthy. I put one together last night. My daughters and I enjoyed out Refrigerator Oatmeal this morning. This is soooo easy and filling, I’m still full from breakfast.
I changed this basic recipe a little bit. I was all out of yogurt so I substituted it with cottage cheese. I used half almond milk and half water. For the fruit, I used dried cranberries, for some crunch I used sliced almonds and ground Chia to thicken it up. I also used a little bit of Agave to add some sweetness. It was great!
By the way, if you don’t have mason jars don’t let this stop you from trying these recipes. I used a plastic container with a tight lid and made a big batch for the family.
Here’s the recipe from http://www.grocerybudget101.com/)
