mini-chocolate cheesecakes


So, this idea is not original and has been done before - but I just wanted to make some too... they are quite yummy, and I added a top layer of caramel sauce and a pecan to top it off... cutesy, too! 


And I love the layers when you cut through it like this - looks like something that takes some time to make - but it's so quick to whip up.




So, after making a batch with Oreo's - I decided to make some with mini stroopwafels.... and I'm not sure which I liked better... but I love - love - LOVE stroopwafels... I could eat them everyday... and I have... not lately, though... I'm getting much better at disciplining myself - really I am!



I know it doesn't look like much - it doesn't have that layers thing like the Oreo does... but stroopwafels are so very yummy!


Just in case you haven't seen what I've done with stroopwafels before... let me redirect you to a previous post... Double-dipped Stroopwafels were divine. Also, my newest way to indulge in this bad but good cookie - is to spread a thin layer of chocolade pasta on it (such as Nutella). They are also great served up with some chocolate vla (pudding) and whipped cream. 


Stroopwafels and chocolate are friends - they go great together... even better than peas are carrots - yup yup!



This is how I made mine.


Step 1. Line muffin pan with silicone cupcake liners - these peel away easily from the finished product. Place one Oreo cookie or mini stroopwafel or other cookie of your choosing in the bottom of each liner. Set aside. Heat oven to 160-C or 325-F.

Step 2. In a bowl, prepare chocolate cheesecake batter - beat together 1 package (8oz) cream cheese and 1/4 cup sugar, mix in 1 egg, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla and 3 ounces (about 1/3 cup) semi-sweet chocolate morsels, melted.

Step 3. Divide batter among the cookie lined muffin holders or no more than 3/4 full. Cook in oven for 25 minutes. Cool before removing from pan. Chill. Top with caramel sauce and pecan half just before serving.


See, that was easy! - Much easier than the full blown large cheesecake I normally make - and also probably less fattening, too... you know, cuz you'll eat less of it - if you are serving them to guests... otherwise, don't make them just for yourself - because that is just plain foolishness :)

Best Streets to Trick or Treat in Dixie, Southern Utah

This is going to have to be an ongoing post... what I mean, is I might have to update it again next year.

This is going to be a very big deal this year. My kids have never experienced real American Trick or Treating. I have talked about it, and they have seen it on tv shows over the years and they are very excited. As am I!

This is why I wanted to pick a neighborhood that would be awesome for their first experience. Originally, I had planned to spend the weekend with my brother and his family in Spanish Fork, Utah. They live in a neighborhood with about a million kids so it was going to be perfect... but since the flu has affected everyone lately, and since my whole family was sick to death of road trips since we moved back here, we decided to stay in St. George.

This posed a problem for me. I didn't know where the best street was. After a quick google search, I found nothing! No one has blogged about this, at least, not in the first three or four pages of a google search.

I did find …

Today the children and I got to play with clay at The Tilted Kiln in St. George. I had driven past this pottery studio many times not realizing all the fun things it has to offer.

It's not just a pottery shop, though there is a section that some great local artists have pottery for sale. It has a section of ceramics that you can buy and paint yourself and they will cook it again after that. 

That was fun to see. So many great ideas, from painting a large platter with the family name or something like "Dad's Burgers"to piggy banks and garden gnomes. They also had quite a few Christmas related ceramic crafts to paint.

My kids and I had so much fun browsing the ideas and we surely will find ourselves back in the shop come summer vacation! :)

You can come back for parties or other group activities and they have cla…

Punk Baby Names

What do I like to do for fun? Look at my stats on blogger... for example you can see what search terms bring people to your site.

The top 4 search terms which bring people to my site are:

1.  speculoos hagel   ~very understandable - I did a post about these when they first showed up in the supermarket by my house. They are pretty good - but not nearly as good as crunchy speculoos pasta - which I avoid buying because it's that good... it's like that saying - an ounce on the lips - a pound on the hips... well yeah - that's about right!

2. cutekittypunk.blogspot.com -   ~mmmm - self explanatory

3. spumoni cake   ~ ahh, yes - delicious... or as they say in Italian: delizioso! The original post can be seen here

4. punk baby names   ~um, yeah, I've probably talked about baby names in the past. Let me do a quick search on my site to see what comes up...yep... 3 hits - 3 times I talked about baby names in past posts. But to say punk baby names - no - not really.

Now really - you g…
