Sometimes my cravings stray a little north of the usual chocolate on top of chocolate, with a side of something chocolatey.
Enter Mr. (or Mrs.) Lemon….
Before I go any further, it should be pointed out that this recipe requires a mini story.
Do you mind?
Back in the day, my mother in law owned a bakery and my favorite donut to sneak out of the display case was lemon filled and lightly sprinkled with powdered sugar. My second favorite filled donut was raspberry, topped with the perfect dab of homemade vanilla icing.
So I guess my sweet tooth got a tad nostalgic the other day.
Which caused a slow cooker inspired concoction.
I found a box of lemon cake mix and lemon pudding in my pantry and the rest is history.
In my belly.
Stay Nostalgic, My Friends.
Sometimes inspiration for my slow cooker recipes come in the form of very brown, unattractive things.
I’m talk in’ about bananas.
My house is slightly divided on the whole fudge situation. My son and I are super uber chocolate lovers. Never in my life have I ever said “that dessert was good but it was too chocolatey “. Straight up. Never.
Spring just can’t come soon enough around here. We are so over the multiple layering of clothes and the never ending grey skies…….
