Tuesday Eats - Ball Peen Hammer Cooking Tips

 Loose E!   You have some 'Splainin to Do!

 It just going to be one of those weeks.

Key issues with the blogging computer, a lot of squirrels on leave or out with a Spring "bug" that's going around. Plus, by the end of the day, I was seriously coming down with it as well and was running a fever when I got home.  At least the day started better.  For when everyone is a little down, bring in some goodies for the skeleton crew that is working.

Scooby Snacks.

Butterfinger cake. 

Bake your favorite devils food cake recipe or mix that will fix a 13 x 9 pan.  Poke holes in the top a couple inches apart with the end of a wooden spoon when still warm and pour a small jar of Smuckers butterscotch ice cream topping (thinned with 1 and 1/2  Tablespoons of cream so it's more pourable) over the top, spreading with a spatula so it fills up the holes. Whip up a pint of real whipped cream with a small box of sugar-free instant French vanilla pudding and 3 to 4 Tablespoons of milk to get the thickness you want and top with 3 regular sized butterfingers which you've whacked in their wrapper with a ball peen hammer, the remains scattered over the frosting.
It didn't last long. 

I think everyone was feeling better afterwards.


  1. Perhaps everyone was in a sugar coma afterward, LOL! At least it was with a smile on their faces!

  2. Those loose letters can be a real problem, and when it is an important letter like the "e", we can see where it may have been very frustrating.

    As for that butterfinger cake, the grands would die for that - Mom may just have to treat them. Thanks for the recipe.

    1. I have also made it with caramel topping and instead of the Butterfinger used chopped milk chocolate toffee.

  3. Hope you're back to being totally well now. The goodies no doubt helped. Look delish.

  4. I think I gained five pounds just looking at that fabulous cake! Yum!

  5. hugs and potp to you... the butterfinger is the pawfect soulfood I bet... btw: I once removed all keys to clean them in the dishwasher ... without taking a photo of the keyboard in advance...it ended like the magic cube of mr. rubik... incomplete. bought a new one after in black so I can no longer see da dirt ;O)
