Pie and ice cream, who doesn’t love that famous combination?! Mixing the two together is like heaven on a plate! So how could you turn the two into a shake?  It’s simpler than you’d think and the combinations are endless!Chelsea Crockett- blueberry pie shake

Turning a pie into a shake may sound weird to some of you! I promise it’s delicious.  All you need is a blender, ice cream, and your favorite flavor of pie.  Place one cup of ice cream and a slice of pie in the blender, but get rid of the end crust of the pie!  Blend the two together and enjoy!  You’ve got a thick and creamy shake!  Some of my favorite combinations are cinnamon ice cream and apple pie, butterscotch ice cream and peach pie, and vanilla ice cream and blueberry pie!

This sweet treat is perfect to make when you’ve got left over pie from a get-together or holiday! It’s also totally acceptable to run to the store and grab a pie!  When you have a sweet tooth, you’ve got to do what you’ve got to do!

I hope you enjoy this wacky shake!

XOXO,

I recently shared an article with you about how to use apples for beauty remedies.  Now, I want to talk to you about one of my favorite apple desserts and how you can make them!  We love apples at our house and with fall just around the corner, I know that means fresh caramel apples will be in our kitchen!  What’s a bonfire without s’mores and caramel apples!?  Therefore, I thought it would be fun to share a caramel apple recipe with you!Chelsea Crockett - Caramel ApplesFirst you need to cook 1 1/2 cups of sugar and 1/2 cup of water in a saucepan over medium heat.  Be sure to swirl until golden brown.  Remove from heat and stir in 1/4 cup of cream, 1/4 teaspoon vanilla, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt.  Transfer to a bowl that is tall and good for dipping apples and let the ingredients cool slightly!  Insert a wooden stick into four apples and dip them into the caramel, one at a time.  Be sure to set them on parchment paper after dipping.  Then, let them harden by placing in the refrigerator if needed. You can also dip them in nuts, Oreos, M&M’s etc.! It’s quick, easy, and delicious!

There you have it….a perfect treat for bonfires, hayrides, Halloween parties, etc.  What better way to kick off fall then to treat yourself and your friends to some homemade caramel apples!  Yum!

Enjoy! – Chelsea

Are you in need of a quick cool down snack? Then try this super fast sorbet in a bag! The serving is just the right size for the Insider in need of a quick sweet treat!

Ingredients:chelsea crockett

  • One gallon size Ziploc® brand Freezer Bag
  • One pint size Ziploc® brand Freezer Bag
  • 6 tablespoons rock salt
  • One tray of ice cubes
  • One half cup juice
  • Optional: cream, sugar
  1. First, make the ice bag. To do this, empty a full try of ice cubes into a 1 gallon Ziploc bag.
  2. Second, make the juice bag.  Pour half a cup of fruit juice into a 1 pint Ziploc freezer bag. To make the sorbet creamier, add one cup of cream and a tablespoon of sugar here. Squeeze all the air out of the bag and check that you securely seal the bag, and place it into the large bag of ice.
  3. Next, wrap the bag in a towel and shake it for five minutes. Remove the bag that once held the fruit juice, and check out your fresh bag of sorbet. Wipe the ice, salt and water off the outside of the sorbet bag so it doesn’t get in the sorbet. Scoop your sweet treat into a bowl and enjoy!

I am so excited to make my own personal sorbet. Are you?

XOXO, Chels

Chocolate bars, chocolate chip cookies, chocolate cake… what dessert isn’t good with chocolate? No matter what recipe I choose to make, I try to pick one that has plenty of chocolate in it… and I know I’m not the only one! That’s why I want to share a recipe called “Chocolate Heaven” with all of my lovely insiders :).

First, take a trip to the grocery store and purchase these several ingredients: 1 box of brownie mix, 2 small packages of chocolate pudding (4 cups), 1 12 oz. bucket of cool whip, 12 oz. of Heath bars, and 1 cup of chopped pecans (optional).Chelsea Crockett - Chocolate Heaven

Second, make the brownies as instructed on the box and let them cool. Then break up the brownies into chunks and spread half of them out in the bottom of a large bowl. Next, pour out two of the pudding cups on top of the brownies. Take half of the bucket of cool whip and pour that over the pudding. Follow that with half of the heath and half of the cup of chopped pecans. Repeat this again so you have two layers of chocolate heaven!

Third, enjoy! Serve your delicious treat by simply scooping out however much you want. Make sure you get all the way down to the last layer, you wouldn’t want to miss out on any of the ingredients! Let me know how yours turns out!

Love, Chelsea

Whenever I’m hungry, I go straight to the kitchen and snack on some of my favorite fruits and vegetables. Okay okay okay, maybe they’re not my first choice. Usually my stomach is craving some sweets and dessert treats! Something I like to do during my lazy summer days is experiment with some recipes. Here is one in particular that tastes absolutely ahhh-mazing, and with summer coming up, what’s a better time to try it out for yourself?Chelsea Crockett - Pretzel Bark

First off, you’ll need to take a trip to the grocery store and pick up a few ingredients: a 1-pound bag of mini pretzel sticks, you’ll only use about half of the bag, 2 sticks of butter (about one cup), 1 cup of packed light brown sugar, 2 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips, and sea salt (optional).

Second, preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Cover the bottom of the baking sheet with aluminum foil to avoid the pretzels sticking to it! In a saucepan, over medium heat, mix together to butter and brown sugar. When it starts bubbling, let it sit still for 3 minutes. Then pour the mixture over the pretzels laid out on the baking sheet. Bake it for only 5 minutes then remove and pour the chocolate chips all over the top of the pretzels! Let the dessert cool at room temperature for as long as you like, or as long as you can stand it! Then dig in, YUM!

Enjoy!- Chelsea

Craving something sweet and salty? These pretzel bites will put a pep in your step! All you need is:

 -1 cup creamy peanut butter

-2 tablespoons softened butter
-1/2 cup powdered sugar
-3/4 cup brown sugar
-Pretzels
-1 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips

 1. Line a baking sheet with wax paper and set it aside.

2. In the bowl of a mixer, beat peanut butter and butter until it is all mixed together. Scrape the sides of the bowl, add the sugars, and beat until combined. You should be able to roll the mixture into balls without it sticking to your hands. If you need to, add more powdered sugar until you reach a consistency that is easy to roll.
chelsea crockett pretzels3. Roll the mixture into small balls, about 1 teaspoon of mixture for each ball, and place on the baking sheet. Sandwich the balls between two pretzels and place in the freezer for 30 minutes.

4. After they have frozen, melt your chocolate chips in a sauce pan and dip the pretzels into the melted chocolate. Place these in your refrigerator to cool. Store them in the refrigerator, also, because they taste better cold!

 

You can take these to parties, or just make them for yourself if you are craving something sweet!

XOXO, Chels

What are the two words every teenager longs to hear? “Snow Day”! As you have probably seen on my Instagram, it snowed in my hometown this week! All of the snow got me thinking about what you can MAKE with snow! Did you know that you can make ice cream out of snow? You totally can! Check out the recipe below and try it out!

Ingredients:

-1 gallon of snowchelsea crockett snow ice cream

-1 cup white sugar

-2 cups of milk

-1 tbs vanilla extract

 

So what you do is you take a big bowl outside with you and scoop some snow (about 2 gallons) into it! Make sure its clean snow, none of that yellow snow ;). Next, stir in the vanilla and sugar to taste.  Gradually stir in the milk so that it does not melt the snow. Once you have reached the consistency that you desire, serve it! This type of recipe should be served immediately after you make it because of the snow. That stuff melts FAST! And, snow ice cream is not really that good if you freeze it to use again. Next time it snows at your house, try out this super unique recipe!

 

Comment below if you try this yummy winter treat and tell me how you like it!

XOXO, Chels
