This Malted Milk Chocolate & Walnut Fudge has rich milk chocolate, marshmallows, crunchy walnuts and a little malty flavor that adds something a little extra to this fudge recipe.

The holidays always call for fudge! Don’t you agree?  The thing that I love most about fudge too is that everyone makes it differently.  Whether it’s a classic chocolate and nut combination or loaded with goodies I have to admit that I haven’t ever met a piece of fudge that I did not like.

Another great thing about fudge, it’s SO EASY TO MAKE!

The inspiration for this fudge recipe comes from my love of malted milk powder.  It is something I always have on hand.  It’s so good in plain or chocolate milk, shakes, even morning oatmeal.

Then I added marshmallows thinking of the hot chocolate that we make while it’s cold outside.  Finally, add the nuts for a crunchy texture.

How to make Malted Milk Chocolate & Walnut Fudge:

In a microwave proof bowl add the milk chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk.

Microwave the mixture in 45-second intervals, stirring in between to combine the ingredients.  It should take about 4-5 rounds until everything is well combined.

To the bowl add the marshmallows, walnuts and malted milk powder.  Stir to mix everything together.

In an 8″x8″x pan add non-stick tin foil.  Lightly grease the tin foil then add the fudge mixture to the pan.

Put the fudge into the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.   Make sure the fudge has set before trying to cut.

Cut into 25 pieces and serve.

Tips for making Malted Milk Chocolate & Walnut Fudge:

  • Since the chocolate mixture is hot the marshmallows will melt some. 
  • Store any leftover fudge in a container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

Margarita Pie #CookoutWeek

I really don’t think that #CookoutWeek can pass without having an easy, no-bake dessert that everyone will love!  My Mother-In-Law’s Margarita Pie is a creamy, citrus no-bake pie with a pretzel crust that’s the perfect summer treat.

I have previously updated the recipe for this pie and made a Cherry Limeade Pretzel Pie for National Pretzel Day.  The change was great but for today I thought I would just make the classic Margarita Pie recipe that I’ve been enjoying for years now.

This Margarita Pie also gives off some serious summertime vibes.  Full of creamy filling mixed with lime and orange juice it’s the perfect compliment to the salty pretzel crust.  No turning on the oven when it’s 100 degrees but you NEED to get a dessert made for that cookout your heading to.  Now on to the recipe because Summer is short!

For more information about Barlean’s visit their About page.

How to make Margarita Pie:

For the crust, it’s as simple as crushing the pretzels. You can use a food processor or a good old Ziploc bag and a rolling pin. M

elt the Barlean’s Butter Flavored Coconut Oil, which made a fabulous swap for regular butter in this recipe, then either add it to the bag or slowly pour into the food processor while pulsing to combine and get the pretzels nice and fine.

Add the sugar to the mix then press the crumbs into a 9-inch pie plate.

Ingredients for a Margarita Pie.

In a seperate bowl add the whipped cream, lime juice, orange juice then the sweetened condensed milk.

Fold the ingredients together from the bottom up.  Keep stirring until all the ingredients are well combined.

Add the filling to the pretzel crust.  Put into the refrigerator to set for at least 1 hour.

Slice into 8 pieces.

And here you are……

Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream #SundaySupper

Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream is a creamy treat that perfect for fall!  This no-churn ice cream recipe is a great break from traditional pumpkin spice recipes. 

Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream in a bowl ready to eat!

I couldn’t believe how easy it was to make ice cream. No fancy equipment just start with 2 simple ingredients and then add from there. I’ve always wanted to try my own so I thought for Fall some pumpkin ice cream would be perfect.  Even better, pumpkin pie ice cream.

Even though Friday was officially the beginning of Fall ice cream really is in order since this week has been H-O-T!  I’m talking like almost 90 degrees.  It’s a little odd to see the leaves falling when you are staring at them from inside because you want to be close to the A/C.  Not complaining though because Michigan winters are so long that I will take every last bit of Summer I can get.  So now let’s cool off with some pumpkin pie ice cream, shall we?

Is no-churn ice cream at home? Yes!

  • Start with just two ingredients:  heavy whipping cream and sweetened condensed milk.
  • Don’t have a Kitchen Aid mixer?  A handheld electric mixer works just as well!
  • Add nuts, fruit, candy pieces, chocolate chunks…anything you like to make a no-churn dessert at home the whole family will love.

How to make Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream:

Using a mixer, either stand or handheld, whip the whipping cream for around 5 minutes until peaks form.  With it still going add the can of sweetened condensed milk.

Finally add the pumpkin, vanilla and pumpkin spice.  That’s it!  Turn off the mixer and get ready to add the cookies.

In a Ziploc bag crush up the cookies or graham crackers whatever your using.  Not too fine though.  Add 3/4 of the cup of crushed cookies into the filling.

Place into a loaf pan, it worked perfect and didn’t take up too much room in my freezer.  Now put the rest of the cookies on top.

Into the freezer, this pumpkin pie ice cream goes.  It needs at least 6 hours if not overnight.  I got too tempted and tried it after about 4 hours and it was not done–but it tasted good like pudding just not like ice cream.  Once it’s set, delicious.

Cherry Limeade Pretzel Pie

Did you know that Tuesday was National Pretzel Day ? When I saw this I knew that I had to make & share one of my favorite desserts. It has a sweet citrusy center and a crisp, salty crust made of…you guessed it ~ Pretzels!  It’s Cherry Limeade Pretzel Pie.

This is actually a take on a recipe that my Mother-In-Law makes. When I asked where she got it from she said a friend who she worked with made it. So where the original recipe comes from I can’t quit say but it’s delicious and I’m sure a classic in many households by now. I will never forget her making this for me and bringing it over right after we brought our now 9 yr. old home from the hospital. It was just the pick me up I needed to get through the long nights with a newborn.

My Mother-In-Law calls it ‘Margarita Pie’. Here is her hand written recipe card if you prefer to stick to her original version.

Pretzel Pie

For me I changed up the recipe to what it finally became which is Cherry Limeade Pretzel Pie. When she came over with the recipe she brought me a can of sweetened condensed milk so I was literally had everything for this pie BUT the orange juice. I looked in my refrigerator and I had Cherry Limeade so it only made sense to make a few minor changes and Viola! This new version of the ‘Margarita Pie’ that I know and love was created and it was just as good as the original.

So on to the recipe. Gather your ingredients.

Cherry Limeade Pretzel Pie

First, crush up some pretzels. I took about 1/2 a bag of my 2 yr. olds beloved Meijer Alphabet pretzels (Shhhh, don’t tell him!) and rolled them with a rolling pin to crush them. Roll to desired consistency. I like big pieces but you may prefer them as a finer texture.

Cherry Limeade Pretzel Pie

Melt 1/2 cup butter while crushing the pretzels. When done add them to your greased pie plate with 1/4 cup sugar.

Pretzel Crust

Mix it all together and form the crust on the bottom and around the sides of the pie plate.

Pretzel Crust

In separate bowl you are going to combine everything BUT your whipped topping. Once combined you will then fold in your whipped topping.

Spoon it into your crust.

Cherry Limeade Pretzel Pie

Refrigerate until chilled which takes a good 4-6 hours.  A perfect no-bake treat for any occasion. And here you are….
