Sunday's Are Chocolate

Soooo long farwell auf Wiedersehen good bye. Like Arnold would say I'll be back. This is going to be my last post for a few days. But don't stay away to long. I will be posting as we travel. Looking forward to many yummy food experiences through Germany.

I made this easy yummy dessert for the Big Daddy's in my life. Thanks to my Father who is the best ever. While I was single I just called him Mr Helper. Everyday I was calling Mr Helper with a problem. Then Big Daddy Mike he is the best husband ever just can't get enough of that Mike. Oh and I can't forget those military son and son -in-law who served our country and left their little boys at home with Mum. Happy Father's Day to you also. Hugs to all the men in my life.

Chocolate Peppermint Freeze


11/2 cups cold milk
1 package (3.9 oz)instant chocolate pudding mix
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract

In a large bowl, whisk milk and pudding mix for 2 minutes; let stand 2 minutes or until soft-set. Stir in chocolate chips. In a small mixing bowl, beat cream until it begins to thicken. Add peppermint extract; beat until soft peaks form. Fold into pudding.

Transfer to an ungreased 8-in. square dish. Cover and freeze for 2 hours or until firm. Remove from the freezer 15 minutes before cutting.
