NUTELLA cookies....need I say more??


    Two delicious frosting recipes I thought REALLY needed to be shared:
    Ice Cream Frosting


    1/3 cup butter, softened
    4 oz, cream cheese, softened
    2 tsp vanilla extract
    1/4 cup vanilla ice cream
    2-4 tbsp milk*
    5-1/2 cups confectioners sugar

    Allow 1/4 cup of ice cream to sit at room temperature for 10 minutes.

    Beat butter and cream cheese with electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add vanilla extract and mix to combine. Gradually add powdered sugar, one cup at a time. Mix in ice cream and gradually add milk until you reach your desired consistency.

    *I didn’t measure the amount of milk I used, but this is probably close. Just remember to use a tiny bit at a time

    Peanut Butter Frosting

    (Enough to frost 24 cupcakes or 12 jumbo cupcakes)

    -1/3 cup smooth natural peanut butter

    -3 cups powdered sugar

    -1-1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

    -1/4 cup milk (plus more to achieve desired consistency)


    Blend peanut butter, vanilla, and powdered sugar until combined. Add milk and mix on medium speed until smooth and creamy. Continue to add milk until you get the desired consistency.
