Mississippi Mud Cake

I am a huge fan of Mississippi Mud Cakes, Brownies, Bars and Pies.  I love anything that has marshmallow cream in it and topped with the decadent Mississippi Mud icing!  When I came across this picture at Taste of Home I just had to make it the same day!  All I can say is “YUM!”

Lemony Blackberry Vodka Gelees

how to make vodka jelly shots

I know.  Isn’t this picture amazing?  I just HAD to make them.  And although my turned out so very pretty (and totally adictive) – my pictures did not.

What can I say about this recipe?  If you do make them you will be rewarded with vodka jelly shots that will win you acclaim.  But only after a lot of time, effort and expense went into it.  Is is worth it?  In my opinion it depends on the event.  I made them for dinner party of 8 and it was well worth it.  My advice?  Follow the recipe to a “T”!

The recipe comes from Cooking Light so I even rationalized that these were good for me – LOL:)  But I do love my Cooking Light subscription – I got so many great recipes every month! (this is not a paid endorsement – I just love the mag!)
