Marshmallow Oreo Surprise

Whenever I don’t know what to call a new dessert or recipe I like that I can just add the word “surprise” to the end of it and BOOM! You have a name for your dessert.
I made a few of these red, white and blueberry treats tonight and they were super refreshing and sweet.  I started with a whole Oreo cookie at the bottom (next time I’ll crumble it) added a layer of whip cream and marshmallows, and added rows of blueberries and strawberries. The dishes were small so I couldn’t make ‘stripes’ with the fruit, but I thought they looked nice, and it was a festive dessert to kick of the long weekend with.

Happy Memorial Day Weekend everyone!

Below is the 'surprise' cookie that was at the bottom of the dessert.

Refreshing Ladybugs

Look what is crawling on my windowsill - An edible little ‘ladybug’ appetizer! I found this idea in my Taste of Home magazine and had to try it right away. I took a round cracker spread with cream cheese, cut a cherry tomato in half for the wings, used a black olive half for the head and then stuck chives for the antennae. I waited a little too long to take the picture so my antennae and olive wilted a bit, but his is just adorable. I can see a whole tray of these at my next outdoor gathering this summer.
