I used to think I was the type of person who always colored inside the lines. I never strayed from the given directions. Always followed the rules. However, the more I bake, the more of a rebel I become. Why do a recipe exactly like it says? Why not put my own twist on things! Tuesday nights have become my regular night in the kitchen to get in touch with my creative side. Tonight was no exception!
Earlier this week I saw a recipe for an ice cream pizza that I just had take a closer look at. After careful examination, I decided that it could use some improvement. First off, I don’t have a pizza pan, but the picture really looked like a pie, so I went with the pie inspiration. Also, fudge, vanilla ice cream and peanuts are nice, but I think we could take this up a notch by going with a chocolate peanut-butter theme. I’m not a huge fan on peanuts on the top of ice cream, so I decided on mini-sized Reese’s Pieces. Instead of more fudge on top, I used Reese’s hard shell. Noticing a theme? So here is a layer by layer shot of my dessert.
