A Sweet End to Summer
Lots of you know that I love Pinterest – and goodness knows I’ve pinned enough recipes to sink a car carrier. But when I’m in the grocery store with no means to Google anything, I’m left to my own resourcefulness. That happened today when I arrived at the store, determined to buy ingredients to make a Twix Trifle I “saw” on Pinterest. With no recipe, and no shopping list, I set to work. Just so you stay tuned for the whole post – here is the final outcome:
So, here’s the super-easy, off-the-cuff recipe:
1 package Sandies shortbread cookies – broken into bite-sized pieces.. Mix those in a big bowl with:
2 boxes of Twix bars – these are the smaller sized ones in the cookie aisle. Break those up into bite-sized pieces, too. Mix them in with the Sandies, but save some for the top.
2 boxes of instant pudding – I mix two boxes together (white chocolate and butterscotch)
1 small jar hot fudge
1 small jar of caramel sauce
whipped cream (yes, I make mine from “scratch”)
Now start layering:
drizzle hot syrups
Finish with whipped cream, and top with the reserved Twix bars.
Hire someone strong to carry the container, because it will weigh a ton. Also, find a BUNCH of friends to share it with you, otherwise you’ll weigh a ton, too!! 7 of us managed to eat only 1/3 of the whole dessert tonight. You know what that means…..
What a fun back to school lunch that will be! Hmmmmm..
I’ll have to save room for dessert on Tuesday
Let me know if you try making it at home!
