I'm taking one of my favorite coffee creamers from morning to night, with melt in your mouth Caramel Macchiato Dessert Waffles topped with delicious vanilla ice cream drizzled with warm caramel topping. I don't know about you, but my mouth is watering just typing this! 

We often have breakfast for dinner, especially when my husband is not home. It's easy and fun to mix things up every so often. I remember the dessert waffles as a kid, do you? I think it is where I learned to love waffles. This idea got me thinking, why not add International Delight® Coffee Creamer to my favorite breakfast item and turn it into a dessert? 

Hold onto your socks, because this dessert right here, will knock them right off! You will never be able to eat regular waffles again! 





Gather all your ingredients: 
  • White Cake Mix
  • 1/2 Cup Water
  • 1/2 Cup International Delight® Caramel Macchiato Creamer
  • 3 Eggs
  • Caramel Topping
Instructions: 

  1. Preheat your waffle iron, mine has a light which will stay on until it is ready, then it turns off. 
  2. Mix cake mix, water, creamer and eggs with mixer until fluffy. Making sure everything is fully mixed.
  3. Place a 1/3 cup cake batter onto the hot waffle iron. Depending on the size of your waffle iron, will depend on how much cake batter you use. I have a small round one. 
  4. Remove the waffle from the iron, when it is done and set aside. Top with a scoop {or 3} of vanilla ice cream and drizzle warm caramel over the top. 
And that, my friends is how you bring your favorite International Delight® Coffee Creamer from morning to night! 


Speaking of morning, I love starting my day off with a great cup of coffee and International Delight® Coffee Creamers do just that! The International Delight® Cold Stone Creamery™ Sweet Cream is a delicious addition to my morning routine and I really like the new easy grip half gallon bottles, they are easier to hold and pour. 

I found International Delight® Coffee Creamers at my local Walmart store in the Milk and Dairy section under Creamers.

Trunk or Treat Inspiration


You know I get excited about Halloween! The possibilities of parties and fun events are endless!

If you have never been to a Trunk or Treat or participated in one, it is a must! They are so much fun, not only for the kids but for the adults involved too! Our neighborhood has many houses with steep stairs, including ours. So this year, I decided to create a Trunk or Treat for the kids! I gathered some Halloween decor I had on hand and covered the back seats with a black blanket. I designed the perfect FREE PRINTABLE banner to string across the back and added several pops of color! 





Trunk or Treats can be scary or funny, chic or lavish, the theme is really up to you. Have fun decorating your Trunk for the trick-or-treaters this year!

A New Twist on Ordinary Cookies and Milk

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #FarFromOrdinaryMilk #CollectiveBias

How many of you love milk? Whether it be chocolate, strawberry, white or any other flavor I love it and crave it! I always have, ever since I was a kid. 


Why drink milk in ordinary cups when you can drink it out of chocolate chip cookie cups? Yes, chocolate chip cookie edible cups embellished with sprinkles, because everything's better with sprinkles! Nothing better than cookies and milk with a new twist! Together they are always a crowd-pleaser. So fun and easy to make and you can get the kids involved.


Here's what you will need: 

Chocolate Chip Cookie dough {made from scratch or prepackaged}
Extra Chocolate Chips
Sprinkles ** Optional**
Silicone Shot Mold

Directions: 

1) Preheat oven and mix cookie dough according to package or recipe. No need to grease the mold, since it is non-stick. Using your fingers place dough into silicone mold. Make sure you press the dough all the way down inside the mold. Leaving the top of each glass open so you can see the middle of the cup. As the dough begins to bake, it will cover up the top of the glass.

TIP: Lightly tap the mold against the counter to make sure all space is filled with dough. Place the mold in the refrigerator for about 10-15 minutes. This will help the dough form to the glass shape. 

2) Bake your cookies according to the package or recipe. Because the mold is deeper than regular cookies it may take longer to bake. 

3) Once they are fully baked, take a spoon and flatten the top of the mold, which is the bottom of the glasses. This will help them stand properly without being wanky with the possibility of tipping over.


4) Let the cookies cool to the touch, place the mold in the refrigerator again for about 30 minutes. This helps them harden a bit and completely cool. Now it's time to gently push out the cookies from the mold. 

5) You will need to take the extra chocolate chips and melt them in the microwave for approximately 20 seconds. Each microwave is different, so you will need to make sure you don't burn them. Once they are melted, spoon a small amount into each cookie cup, using your finger, spread the chocolate around the cup to "seal" it. This helps the cookie cup not spring any leaks. Pop them back into the refrigerator for about 10 minutes to harden the chocolate. 


6) **Optional** if you would like to add sprinkles around the top of the cookie cup, using the melted chocolate chips again, spread a small amount around the rim and dip in the sprinkles. {See photo below}



7) Now you are ready to fill your edible cookie cups with Promised Land Milk! I used Promised Land 2% White Dairy Milk and also had on hand the Midnight Chocolate Milk. Both are very delicious. Extraordinary flavor comes from extraordinary cows!

Did you know Promised Land is made with Natural Milk from the finest Jersey Cows {which are a breed of cows, not cows from New Jersey},with no added hormones and the milk is tested for antibiotics and is also higher in protein and calcium than ordinary milk? I had no idea! 

Jersey Cows make Promised Land Milk Far From Ordinary, which is why I wanted to share this recipe with you, so you could make your day Far From Ordinary with Promised Land Milk. 

Here is your chance to try some yourself. You can earn $0.75 cash back with any purchase of any variety of Promised Land Dairy Milk products 32oz. or larger, just click here


I purchased this delicious milk at Target in the refrigerated milk isle. 





Enjoy this fabulous recipe and remember, extraordinary flavor comes from extraordinary cows!
