This April Fool's Day I decided to make my favorite snack into a dessert. This sweet trick on Beer, Pretzels and Cheese dip is enough to make anyone say “pass the mustard?”. Although it may look savory this snack is actually a dessert in disguise. The beer is really a honey apple jello, the pretzels are covered in pearl sugar posing as salt and the dip may look cheesy but its actually white chocolate fondue.
Store bought mini cruller donuts are used as the base of this easy no-bake strawberry shortcake. Slice some berries and whipped up a light sweetened mascarpone and dessert is ready in 5 minutes. Like the Barefoot Contessa taught us if you don’t have homemade “store bought is fine”.
These cupcakes combine tangy fresh blackberries with rich dark chocolate. Dark chocolate cake is filled with a creamy sweet whipped blackberry mascarpone and topped with rich blackberry dark chocolate Swiss meringue buttercream. Sprinkle the whole thing with chocolate curls and top with a fresh blackberry.
