It was a landslide vote this week y’all, with our new guy Mike making a real splash! Errrr, make that a spill…
It started off a bit lumpy, you can’t deny it. Our hero was set upon from every side by leaky food processors, a few depth perception issues… and an attention span not unlike mine for reading the recipes. The phrase chocolate porridge scares me a little.
Ahhh! The pudding-anity!
Don’t worry, he rolled up his sleeves and had at the mischievous pudding one more time. Victory was his! Nice job Mike, you really pulled through and we know the lucky girlfriend will be impressed.
When life gives you pudding, make ice cream! That’s how the saying goes ain’t it? This leaves me with the hardest decision I’ve ever had to make, turn it into pudding or churn it in the ice cream maker. How can y’all do this to me?
With Dorie agreeing that it was a great idea, Erin forged (froze?) ahead and turned this into a perfect cone that, as she pointed out, ends up being no drip because it melts into pudding. Ingenious Erin!
A little 1% milk makes Mary Ann’s pudding a bit less guilt free (and I could use a lot less guilt in my life for one!), and if that wasn’t enough she found a perfect way to top it off! Chocolate covered sunflower seeds, could you want anything better?
Some people took that extra yum and went for whipped cream as a cushion for the seeds. Others liked theirs nekkid, but this is a family blog and I ain’t putting up pics of that. You’ll have to go read about it all on her site, and get a peek at the attack of the kids on the defenseless treat!
It’s a good thing that I’m the obnoxious writer of this feature, and not Laurie. Why you ask? Fearless Leader would’ve ignored the votes for herself in a scandelous way and her pudding would not be up here. (She does however cheerfully volunteer to help me out when this stupid Florida allergy head cold thing kicks my butt)
The same creation that when it didnt set she put into the ice cream maker to end up with this luscious, creamy dessert.
She didn’t stop with the ice cream, she added brownies to it. Brownies in the ice cream, which is my fav ice cream of all time. Is there anything sexier than this?
Yes. This is sexier. She’ll be yelling at me for putting this up, but it was on her blog and that’s where I get the pics from and I do what I want so there. Hah! Fearless leader, in all her pudding eating lucious glory.
