. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Dessert Party of One

Dessert Party of One


Many Tuesday nights I make snacks for small group and last week I wanted to make some fall desserts and made two of the easiest ones possible.  Unfortunately we had to cancel small group which meant that I was left with two delicious desserts that I consumed primarily by myself over the next few days.  

The best thing about these desserts is they both only have a few ingredients and are quick. 


For this fall popcorn mix all you need is:
2 bags of popcorn
Half a package of white almond bark
Half a bag of candy corn
pretzels
Half a bag of chocolate chips

Pop your popcorn and make sure to take out any unpopped kernels.  Put in your pretzels.  Melt the almond bark and pour over popcorn and pretzels.  Stir.  Add in the candy corn and mix again.  Spread out over waxed paper and let it cool.  

This is the best way to melt and drizzle chocolate.  Put your chocolate chips in a plastic bag and microwave it for about a minute or so.  Then cut a little hole in the corner and drizzle the chocolate. 


Once it's cool you can break it up into pieces and then it all of it by yourself like I did. 


The other dessert I made were these pumpkin muffins.  While I could have, I didn't eat all of these at one time.  I actually froze half of them and have been eating them since.  All you need is a can of pumpkin, a box of yellow cake mix and half a bag of chocolate chips.  Mix them altogether and pour in a muffin pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until baked through.  


And because these are called muffins you can justify eating them for breakfast.  And because they have a vegetable in them you can call them healthy.

I like your idea of healthy! You sound like my mother-in-law who thinks ice cream is healthy because it has milk in it. Haha!
