Posted this recipe a while back and it is STILL amazing. The recipe is super, super simple. It really is the mixture of Strawberries, Feta cheese, Balsamic Vinegar and fresh chopped basil. I swear if there anything more magical, I don’t know what it is! So here’s my partner doing the mixing and chopping. Of course I was about 40lbs heavier than I am right now…but it’s worth it to post it again since it’s such an amazing recipe! BTW…the music is from Basia (one of my absolute all time favorite singers in the whole entire planet!)

 

 

Edible Brownie Santa Hats for your Holiday Party

While looking for some fun ideas to do for holiday parties this year, my catering team and I came up with a very simple idea to do with strawberries, icing and brownies.  We made little Santa Hats with the ingredients and presented them a few different ways to show them off.  As normal, I took all the shots with my iPhone.  If you need the recipe for any of the items, let me know.  I’m happy to share!

My White Trash Five-Ingredient Recipe

To make your Britney Spears, White Trash Dessert, is mostly in the attitude. While you are mixing the ingredients, you are judging white trash. As you mix the soft ice cream sandwiches, you think to yourself, “yeah…only white trash people eat these!” As you mix the Cool Whip and ButterFinger Candy Bars, you think to yourself, “omg…what piece of trash would combine these things?!” And finally, as you pour the hard shell over the top of the mixed ingredients, in your finest tupperware or glass casserole dish, you think to yourself, “I AM that person and THIS is a masterpiece!” (And this is really good by the way!)

Vanilla Ice Cream Sandwiches
Have it be a little soft, like white trash morals, before you are ready to combine the ingredients.

Butterfinger Candy Bars
Crunch them up really good inside their own packaging…you basically want chunky pieces of ButterFinger bars. Just think of all the times you’ve wanted to beat someone…this is your chance to take out your anger here.

Cool Whip
Or some kind of whipped cream…doesn’t matter how you say it! Whip or “HWhip”

Hard Shell Ice Cream Coating
Pick your favorite flavor…it’ll all work out in the end.

Tupperware or Casserole Bowl
How you present this is really important! Glass bottom casserole dishes make the best presentation!

If you do it right…you are entitled to one of these babies!
