Ben and Jerry’s Week ~ The Recap

Hey there!

So Ben and Jerry’s Week is in the can.

 

It was a totally fun week, but unfortunately (or fortunately?) it’s sparked a trillion more ideas, because B&J’s has some pah-rittee excellent flavor selections.

Before we start planning the sequel though, let’s recap the week that was…

 

Day 1

Ben and Jerry's Week Recap

I made What A Cluster Bars.  They are a peanut butter blondie base, with Marshmallow Fluff filling, topped with caramel krispies.  Basically the perfect bite!

Kristan made Cherry Garcia Cake.  Talk about impressive…it’s a rich dark chocolate cake with cherry buttercream that’s loaded with chocolate chunks and sweet cherries. I need a slice or 4.

Peabody made Phish Food Pie.  Phish Food is my kid’s favorite and this pie is loaded with all the flavors of the ice cream…It’s a brownie caramel pie topped with Marshmallow Fluff and cute little chocolate fishies 🙂

 

 

Day 2

Ben and Jerry's Week RecapKristan made Everything But The…(Kitchen Sink) Brownies.  And yeah these brownies have just about everything.  PLUS Kristan topped them with their B&J namesake, which is basically the smartest thing ever.

I made Karamel Sutra Cupcakes.  I’m not even a little bit sorry about these.  They’re Devil’s Food Cupcakes, filled with caramel sauce and topped with a chocolate caramel frosting and chocolate curls.  Yeah, they’re good.

Ben and Jerry's Week RecapJulie joined us today and made Americone Dream Blondie Sandwiches.  They’re a perfect blondie sandwich filled with chocolate covered cones and caramel sauce.  Umm, yes.

And Peabody made Everything But the…Cake.  Which I just want to climb into and live there forever. It’s a Chocolate and Vanilla Swirl Layer Cake with White Chocolate Buttercream Frosting and if that ‘s not enough there are peanut butter cups stuffed in one layer , Heath Bar Chunks in the other layer all topped with more peanut butter cups, Heath bar AND chocolate covered almonds.  I can’t breath.

 

Day 3

Ben and Jerry's Week Recap

Kristan took on Chunky Monkey and made Chunky Monkey Sandwich Cookies.  Good choice.  These are dark chocolate cookies with walnuts filled with a ice-cream-ish banana frosting with chocolate chunks.  I need to make that frosting asap.

Peabody made some totally cute Coffee Heath Bar Crunch Swirl Cookies.  Besides being pretty, they are totally what I need for my 3:00 caffeine fix.

Ben and Jerry's Week RecapFinishing up the week I made some Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookies with Cinnamon Buttercream based on the Oatmeal Chunk Cookie flavor.  Make these cookies now.  Seriously.

And Heather joined us to end on a classy note and made the most gorgeous Chocolate Therapy Cake you ever did see.  It’s a chocolate cake with chocolate covered cookies baked in (oh yes) with a delicious chocolate pudding buttercream, which I CANNOT wait to make.

So there you have it…11 totally different desserts based on 10 of your favorite Ben and Jerry’s flavors.

I’d love to hear if you have any flavor requests if a sequel week happens!

Have a great weekend!

Loved this series! So glad you did a roundup so I can bookmark this post! I’d love to see something with Wavy Gravy. I miss that flavor so much. It’s the first Ben & Jerry’s I ever tasted.

Chubby Hubby is my fave (though I haven’t seen it in a while…maybe its discontinued?) It was a vanilla malt with fudge and PB swirls…and peanut butter pretzel bits. Salty and sweet. And so good.

I couldn’t pick a fav from your week, if I had to.
They’re all so awesome….the cake looks like it’s made of ice cream.

I just love the Ben and Jerry’s Week idea, and I hope you do a sequel. My favorite flavors are blueberry (Greek) and strawberry cheesecake. Yum!

It has been a very good week and I have enjoyed every post. Not only did everything look delicious but the presentation was so pretty too. Such a visual feast that had me reaching towards my screen.

All I can say is ‘Oh wow!’ I’m also very sad that I didn’t know it was Ben and Jerry’s week – I feel bereft. I’m going to cheer myself up by making the Cherry Garcia Cake 🙂
