Do you love ice cream sandwiches?

I have been craving ice cream sandwiches for a week or so. Finally found some recipes I like Here on Postcards and Pretties .com complete with links to recipes. Yummy!!! Going to try making the coconut and almond ones first.

Then next week we will try the raspberry ice cream sandwich found Here.

What is the sweetest thing anyone has said to you today?

My daughter in law called to tell me how forward she was to me coming to visit this weekend. I will be in AL for two weeks. Cannot wait to see the kids and grandkids. I need to get away from this small town life just for a little while. But  then I'm always ready to comehome.

How about you. Going anywhere else this summer, or are you done traveling for awhile?

What is your favorite sweet to eat?

I have eaten lots of sweets in my lifetime, but this weekend we made a butterfinger cake. It was to die for! It a refrigerator cake, and melt in your mouth good! 

Here is the recipe:

Butterfinger Cake

1 box Devil's Food cake mix prepared by package instructions
1 12.25 ounce Caramel topping (for ice cream)
1 can (12 oz) Eagle Brand Milk
2 ea Butterfinger candy bars crushed
1 Cool whip topping

Prepare the cake mix according to the instructions on the package, and bake in a 13" x 9" pan. As soon as you remove it from the oven, poke holes all over the top of the cake, piercing deeply with a large fork or a sharp knife. Pour the caramel topping over the cake while it's still hot, distributing it evenly with a spoon. Pour the canned milk over the caramel topping, and spread it over the cake with a spoon. Sprinkle the crushed candy bars over the milk, reserving about 1/3 of a bar for garnish. Let the cake cool completely. Top with Cool Whip, and garnish with the remainder of the candy bar. Refrigerate for at least one hour before serving.

This is indeed the best thing I have had to eat yesterday and today.  YUMMY!!!!
