frozen treats

Hi Everyone!

Welcome back to creative entertaining. I’m sorry I have missed a few days- I was away with family and attending a wedding. But I am back and ready to start sharing my ideas, tips and recipes with all of you. By now we all know I love dessert and I love summer. Today’s post is a few recipes for some of my favourite frozen treats. Make these in advance and impress your guests with a yummy homemade dessert!

Easy Peanut Butter Frozen Pie

Ingredients

3 T. melted butter

4 cups of chocolate Rice Krispie cereal

8 oz. softened cream cheese

1 3/4 cups powdered sugar

1 cup of smooth peanut butter

1 cup of milk

1 t. vanilla extract

16 oz. frozen whipped topping (Cool Whip) thawed

1 cup of chopped salted peanuts for garnish

– In a large ziploc bag, combine cereal and butter, seal bag and shake to mix.

Use a rolling pin to crush the cereal into fine crumbs for the chocolate crust. Press into a greased 13″ x 9″ pan and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, blend cream cheese and peanut butter together with a hand mixer, add vanilla, milk and powdered sugar, mixing well until smooth.

Gently fold in topping and spread over chocolate crust. Cover and freeze for 3+ hours or until frozen.

To serve cut into squares and garnish with chopped peanuts.
