Other desserts I've made

I'm good about taking pictures of my cakes and cookies, but I never think to take them of anything else I make. In the past month, I've made a few desserts from pinterest and they have all turned out well.
I figured I'd go through and mention them and give you the links. I recommend taking a look, because they taste as good as they look!

Oreo layer dessert
This is not my picture, it comes from House344's blog. You can find the link below.

You can find it here at House344.
This was pretty easy to make, no oven required and was AMAZING. Everyone who tried it loved it. It was definitely rich (how can it not be when you look at it!), but not so rich that you couldn't eat it.

Oreo Ice Cream Cake
You can find it here at Kraft foods.
OREO Ice Cream Cake recipe

Ive done ice cream pies before (my mom would make them for me), but hadn't done a "cake" version. It was so good, I loved the multiple oreo crumb layers. You could easily switch out the chocolate and vanilla layers for other flavors. Honestly though, I loved the simplicity of those and I don't think I would change a thing!

Caramel Swirled Pretzel M&M blondies (whew..that's a mouthful!)
THis isn't my picture, it comes from Cookies and Cups. Link is below.

These turned out delicious. A lot of caramel oozed to the edges and make the edges a bit hard, but those eating it said it was still great and totally edible and yummy. I did 1 1/2x this recipe because of the number of people I was making it for and not knowing how much people would want. I made it in a 9x13 pan and an 8x8 instead of just a 9x13. I wished I had had a bit more of the batter. I'm not sure if that was a result of the recipe or the fact that I multiplied it. I'm also torn about the pretzel m&ms in there. I loved them, they are yummy, but I felt they were a bit big in size for the recipe. I think next time I will try using just crushed pretzel pieces and see how it compares (and maybe then add mini m&ms or a few extra chocolate chips).

These were all delicious, I recommend making and enjoying yourself!
