Peanut Butter Brownie Ice Cream Sandwiches | ChezCateyLou.com

What’s your favorite ice cream flavor? I have a hard time choosing one – you should see me in an ice cream shop. I sample as many as they will let me, and then still can’t make up my mind! But chocolate peanut butter anything is at the top of the list, and it is TheBetterHalf’s absolute favorite, so that is what I usually end up getting. And I have never had a better peanut butter chocolate ice cream flavor than the Double Peanut Butter Chip from McConnell’s. I take my ice cream very seriously so you can trust me when I say it is the absolute best. Then, when you sandwich it between brownies, and add some mini peanut butter cups to the mix, well the result is one of the best summer treats ever – Peanut Butter Brownie Ice Cream Sandwiches.

You don’t have to take my word for it though on the goodness of McConnell’s…I want to give YOU 6 pints of their awesome ice cream. Shipped from Santa Barbara right to your front door – scroll to the bottom of the post and enter to win!…

KitchenAid Stand Mixer and Ice Cream Maker Giveaway!

KitchenAid Stand Mixer Giveaway

It is too hot outside. We’ve really only had a couple of terribly hot and humid days in NYC and I’m already sick of it! But the one thing I do like about the heat is that it gives me an excuse to eat ALLLLL of the ice cream. I seriously have some form of ice cream / frozen yogurt / gelato every day of the summer. And that is why I am SO excited to be hosting an awesome GIVEAWAY today for a KitchenAid Artisan 5Qt Stand Mixer AND the Ice Cream Maker Attachment.  Scroll to the bottom of the post and enter to win!  …

Stuffed Mushrooms are such a classic party food. They are the perfect passed appetizer – they look pretty on a platter, can be eaten in one bite, and are absolutely delicious! So I thought why wait for a party to make stuffed mushrooms? Why not just make a platter of them for TheBetterHalf and myself? And that’s exactly what I did tonight!

TGIF! After our delicious birthday dinner last night, TheBetterHalf and I are just chilling at home tonight and giving our stomachs (and our wallet) a break! But I still wanted to whip up something delicious and special for us to enjoy and these stuffed mushrooms were the perfect thing. Bonus – they are SO easy to prepare! Plus, they are gluten free thanks to cracker crumbs made from Breton gluten free crackers!

And I want to give you 12 boxes of Breton Gluten Free Crackers so that you can try this recipe yourself! Scroll to the bottom of the post and enter to win!
