Sweet tooth

7 May

Billy and I spent our Sunday night giving in to our sweet tooth.  We watched the Ben & Jerry’s documentary on Netflix and indulged in some Blue Bell ice cream.  Yes, it seems as though we should have been eating Ben & Jerry’s, but to be honest, Blue Bell just MIGHT be more delicious than Ben & Jerry’s and it’s definitely way, way cheaper.

Did you know that Ben from Ben & Jerry’s can’t smell most things?  So when Jerry would make the ice cream with the recommended amount of flavoring, Ben couldn’t taste it.  So he kept adding flavor until Ben could taste it.  And that is why their flavors are so intense.  Who knew?!

To coninue the “sweet tooth” theme, here’s a recipe I came across on Pinterest to satisfy your cake cravings!

5 Minute Mug Cake (yes, it only takes 5 minutes!)

– one egg

– 4 tbsp flour

– 4 tbsp sugar (I used 2, 4 seemed like a lot)

– 3 tbsp milk

– 3 tbsp oil

– 2 tbsp cocoa (I didn’t have this, but I did have hot cocoa mix so i used that instead!)

– This wasn’t in the original recipe, but I added some chocolate chips for fun

Mix the flour, sugar and cocoa first, then add the egg, then add the liquids.  Zap it in the microwave for 3 minutes.  Top off with your fav ice cream and devour.

Obviously this isn’t going to be EXACTLY like your typical chocolate cake, its not quite as fluffy, but for something that easy that will satisfy my cake craving is good enough for me!
