You Should Invite Me To Dinner

Because if you do I will bring,

Chocolate Caramel Frozen Parfaits

These were so so very good this weekend! I brought them to Kristin and Michael's house for dessert on Saturday night.They turned out exactly like the picture and tasted like frozen chocolate mousse.

I even made the homemade chocolate sauce and real whipped cream as an accompaniment.

However, foodie over zealousness prevails in this recipe as well. There are not that many ingredients in the recipe, and yet.... and yet, it uses so many bowls....At one point it says "melt x in a small saucepan" and  then it goes on to say, "In another small saucepan, heat up x"  What? How many small saucepans do they think I have. The answer, is that I have 1!! Just like I have only 1 bowl to my kitchenaid stand mixer yet the recipe has you mix up the custard for 10 min and then "in another bowl" beat the whipped cream...Those extra bowls are like $40, I don't think so.....

Overall, except for all of the dishwashing, it was a pretty easy and impressive dessert.

I can attest that it was oh sooo yummy. However at that point of the evening our dinner conversation had nothing to do with the delicious dessert you prepared from scratch! Thank you for making a lovely and scrumptious dessert as well as many laughs throughout the night!

I have not laughed like that in a while!

"GET OUT OF MY HOOOOOUSE..."

Today I saw Rick at Summerville and when I rolled down the window he said in a menacing scary voice, "CALL ME." Apparently Bridget's entire family thought the holy water was hysterical.

Yum! Maybe next time we meet at Strabucks, you can sneak one in for me, LOL!

You have to make them in a paper cup-We could just eat them out of the cups!!!
