I scream, you scream, Dads scream for ice cream! Need a fun way to celebrate Father’s Day? How about DIY Dipped Waffle Cones? Do you agree that ice cream just tastes better in a waffle cone? And not just a plain old waffle cone. Nope! The ones dipped in all kinds of yummy chocolate glory are a must! We’re dippin and scoopin our way straight to these special dad’s hearts (and tummies)! Happy Father’s Day!
Buy a box of large waffle cones from your grocery store. Melt white almond bark in the microwave according to the directions on the back of the package. While the almond bark is still melted sprinkle with Heath, M&Ms, sprinkles, chocolate chips, and anything else that your heart desires! Once the almond bark and chocolate cools and hardens fill with your favorite ice cream. Top with whipped cream, hot fudge, and caramel sauce.
We all know the saying, “It’s what on the inside that counts”, and it’s never been more true then this Saturday’s goodie. We are loading up our brownies with Heath. Our Heath Bar Brownies are not only topped with bits, but packed with mini bars on the inside. They are the ultimate toffee lovers treat!
2 boxes of dark chocolate brownie mix, plus ingredients on the back of the box
1 bag Heath Bits
1 bag Heath mini candy bars
Make brownie mix according to the directions on the back of the box. Pour half of the brownie mix in the bottom of a greased 9×13 glass baking dish. Top with Heath mini candy bars. Pour the other have of the brownie mix on top of the mini candy bars. Top with Heath Bits. Bake for 35 min at 350 degrees.
We used to hate it when we’d ask our mom what we were having for dinner and she would reply, “Whatever you can find.” We renamed this dinner WYCF. And wouldn’t you know it -we still have it, but this time were the moms saying it! We’re applying this approach to our treat this week, except there’s no dislike involved. Our baking kitchens are full of all kinds of goodies and nothing is off limits. We’re loving every bite of our WYCF Brownie Parfaits!
Bake 1 box of brownies according to directions on the back of the box. Once cool slice into bite size squares.
Layer baked brownies with your favorite toppings in a jar and eat up! Yum!
