Monster Milkshakes #HalloweenTreatsWeek

Have you ever tried a monster shake or freakshake? These over the top milkshakes are so easy to make at home! 

The first step is decorating the glass. I chose to buy white premade cookie icing, you can definitely make your own. I squeezed a stripe around the edge and then spread it slightly with an icing spatula.

I rolled the rim in sprinkles and then used more frosting to apply the candy eyeballs. After you've got it as coated as you like, pop them into the freezer while you make the shakes.

We use a pretty standard milkshake base for ours, vanilla ice cream, vanilla extract and milk. You can vary the flavors of ice cream, add mix ins, change out the extract or make them over 21 shakes by using your favorite liqueur. 

Pour the shakes into the glasses and then top with a generous amount of whipped cream. Begin to add your treats.  This time around I had store bought mini donuts, Witch's Brew Kit Kats and various shaped butter cookies.  I used a skewer for the donuts to give the shake some height.

Then I started placing in the cookies and candy. After I had everything where I wanted it, I added more sprinkles and eyeballs.

I made two shakes. You can definitely decrease the size of the glass and make it 4 servings but be sure to choose something with a wide mouth so that you can really pack the goodies onto the top.

Thanks so much to Angie for hosting #HalloweenTreatsWeek,  I really love seeing how creative people are and all the different takes on spooky themes and I hope that you've all enjoyed it as much as I have!

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites

I'm a huge fan of the Dunkin Donuts Power Breakfast sandwich, so when I started seeing ads for the new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites I stopped in and gave them a try.  They were delicious, but of course, I knew I could make them at home.  I started with the whites of six eggs. You can use pasturized whites if you don't want to do the whole separating, finding a use for the yolks thing.  I beat them up with some salt and pepper. Next up, the tomato and spinach.  I used grape tomatoes, seeded them and then chopped them into 1/4" pieces. I like baby spinach, and I took about 10 leaves and chopped those up into 1/4" pieces as well. I added that to the egg mixture.  When you pour it into the pans, be sure that it all gets evenly distributed.   They bake up pretty quickly, around 9 minutes or so.  Dunkin gives you two egg bites, the mini donut serving size is three. I pop them in ziplocs in the fridge and just pull a bag and reheat them in the microwave for a quick

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon and Cheddar Omelet Bites

Since I already came up with a version of Dunkin Donuts new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites for myself, I decided to make the other variety that they are offering, Bacon & Cheddar, for my husband. Super simple.  Beat up some eggs with salt and pepper.  Add in some shredded cheddar and a slice of bacon cut into 1/4" pieces (I used kitchen shears).  Bake them for about 9 minutes in sprayed mini donut pans. They baked up light and fluffy.  The bacon stayed crisp and there's just the perfect amount of cheese.   I split them up into portions in zip top bags and that way we can just grab a bag and warm them up. My husband laughed when I told him 3 is the serving size.  I'll definitely be doubling the recipe next time!

Double Layer Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Back in the day I used to bake from home for extra money.  This was one of the most popular items.  Cake mix sizes have changed and if you're using the 15.75 ounce ones bake them in 8" pans. If you want to use the 9" rounds, you can also use this cake mix upsizer to make up the difference between the old and new cake mix sizes.  If the layers are too thin, you'll never be able to flip and stack them without a mess. Be sure to keep track of which pan has the pineapple rings and cherries in it and which doesn't so that you can easily turn them out onto the plate in the right order.    Double Layer Pineapple Upside Down Cake Print With Image Without Image Author: Jolene's Recipe Journal Ingredients 10 ounce jar maraschino cherries, drained 1/2 stick butter 1/2 cup packed brown sugar 8 ounce can pineapple slices 8 ounce can crushed pineapple with juice 1 package yellow cake mix (15.75 ounces) Instructions Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
