Repeat the same process with remaining colored mixtures, following the order of the rainbow, freezing between each layer. Refrigerate until solid. Invert the layers onto a cutting board and slice fudge into small squares. And your rainbow is ready to be served.
Bring me some Pie
I think Jensen Ackles has the right idea when he keeps shouting “Pie” every chance he gets on Supernatural. From battling demons, angels and every other supernatural being in between, the one thing that has been constant is the “Pie”. So our Christmas is incomplete without some pie.
Let’s start with our preparations. Place chocolate chips in a large bowl. And then heat heavy cream in a pan until bubbles are formed. Pour the streaming cream over chocolate chips and add a little butter and let it cool. Using a food processor, crush sugar cones and graham crackers. Pour the mixture into a large bowl and stir in butter, sugar and salt. Press the crust into the pie dish. Spread ice cream in any thick even layer. Top with inverted mini Drumsticks, pressing the ice cream topping into vanilla or you could choose strawberry ice cream. Freeze for 30 minutes. Pour ganache over ice cream and around inverted drumsticks then sprinkle chopped peanuts on top. Freeze until it’s solid. Tada! Your pie is ready to be served.
Caramel and Banana goodness
With so many different dessert ideas its hard which one to pick because you are only going to get one chance at it. So here comes the caramel and banana pudding. You can’t get wrong not with this one.
Bring out your mixing bowl and pour vanilla pudding mix and sweetened condensed milk. Stir them thoroughly. Then in another bowl, mix heavy cream, powdered sugar and vanilla. Stir them thoroughly. Put aside half of the mixture for topping the dish. Pour the remaining half into the pudding mixture along with caramel and salt according to taste. Cover the bottom of a trifle dish with vanilla wafers. Pour one-third of the pudding mixture over the wafers. Cover with another layer of the wafer cookies. Furnish the top with an even layer of banana slices then drizzle caramel sauce on top. Keep on layering the pudding with wafer cookies, banana slices, and caramel until you reach the top, ending with a final layer of banana pudding. Refrigerate the pudding overnight. Just before serving, dollop whipped cream on top of the banana pudding, then sprinkle crumbled wafer cookies on top. Your caramel goodness is on its way!
Whipping something up and fast
Short of time and guest will be arriving soon. You need something and fast. Don’t worry, let’s whip something up. It will be the opposite of the disaster that you were expecting.
Well bring out your mixing bowl and get set on whipping up some crazy goodness. Pour some orange juice, ice, and cream into a blender and blend until it’s smooth. Bring out your dessert cups, dollop some vanilla ice cream and pour the blended mixture. Then garnish your dessert with an orange slice.
See a crisis has been averted.
Desserts with the Mermaids
Decided on celebrating Christmas on the beach or have decided to deck your tree with sea shells? Why not your dessert reflect that same theme? So yes here it is the Mermaid Dessert!
In a bowl pour heavy cream and add sweetened condensed milk and vanilla stir until totally combined, then divide mixture among five bowls. Add a different color food coloring to each bowl (I used different amounts of green, blue, and purple for bringing out the shades of the sea) and stir until combined. Layer the colored mixture in a loaf pan. Top with sprinkles and freeze until firm. Remove from freezer and let soften for a few minutes, then scoop and serve. And you are ready to party with the mermaids!
Want so serve something otherworldly, then you should try this melt away awesomeness. For something to be light to go just right with your spread that you have prepared.
So take out your ice cube mold and pour a teaspoon of the melted chocolate into each ice cube mold. With a spoon cover the sides of the mold completely. Freeze until solid. Take out your mixing bowl and combine cream cheese and sour cream, then add powdered sugar, raspberry liqueur and salt beat with a hand mixer until it’s smooth. Fill the ice cube mold with the cream cheese. Press a raspberry or a strawberry into the center. Fill the rest of the mold with the cream cheese mixture. Then top with melted chocolate. Freeze until solid. Invert ice cube tray to unmold. Let’s serve some deliciousness!
Peaches ‘n Cream Lasagna
Peaches and lasagna together this is going to be epic.
Keep the ingredients ready, so you have peaches and almonds sliced. In a large bowl, mix peaches, brown sugar, sugar and cinnamon together. In a bowl, combine heavy cream, powdered sugar and vanilla. Stir the mixture until it’s uniform.
Assemble lasagna. In a baking pan, place graham crackers in an even layer. Spread whipped cream over the graham crackers, top with sliced peaches then sprinkle some almonds on top. Repeat three more times. Chill in refrigerated until the graham crackers have softened.

OMG! We are going to have Popsicles
We have all grown up with the vendors screaming for us to buy some popsicles. And this Christmas you can serve your very own special popsicle.
Cut the ends off of a banana to level the sides, then cut it in half. Insert a popsicle stick into each piece and place on baking sheet and freeze until it hardens. In a bowl, whisk together melted chocolate and coconut oil until smooth. Pour sprinkles in another bowl. Dip them in chocolate, then roll the melted chocolate tip around in sprinkles. Put the pieces on a tray and freeze until the chocolate is firm. Furnish the pop with whipped cream and garnish it with a cherry.
Here comes the Eggnog
Christmas can’t be complete not without Eggnog and no you will not be drinking it but eating it. Yes! You heard me right. Come on have an Eggnog to eat.
Melt the butter in a large mixing bowl. Add the finely crushed graham cracker crumbs. Put in some light brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg into the bowl of melted butter and crumbs. Stir until all combined and put into a nine inch pie pan. It may seem like a lot of crumbs to fit into this shallow pie pan. But, this is why you have crust in with every bite of creamy eggnog filling. Set the formed crust into the refrigerator to harden up the butter that was used in it. This is the perfect time to start on the filling. Pour eggnog and vanilla pudding mixes in a large mixing bowl. Sprinkle some cinnamon and nutmeg and mix. It will begin to thicken up. Bring out your pie crust and pour the creamy eggnog mixture. Spread around to the edges. Cover with whipped cream. Garnish with a sprinkle of cinnamon.
Now your Eggnog is ready for eating.
