Toffee Bread Pudding

*This is a sponsored conversation on behalf of International Delight.

As of late, I’ve been obsessed with making overnight French toast almost every weekend.  I usually do a simple version because that makes everyone happy, sometimes I try and get a little fancy (Strawberry Croissant French Toast?!)  But I’ve discovered an easy and super fabulous way to make the simple version a little more exciting…listen closely…I’m going to whisper it…International Delight Flavored Creamers.  Yep, that’s right.  Flavor and sweetness all in one makes a super delicious breakfast.  

What does that have to do with bread pudding?  So glad you asked.  You see bread pudding and overnight French Toast are practically cousins.  Day old bread, eggs, sugar, milk or cream – components of both.  Using International Delight to make a decadent dessert made sense.

The outcome…pure bliss.  Heath International Delight Coffee Creamer was my choice for this dessert because chocolate and toffee is one of my favorite candy bars lately and a warm, bread pudding topped with ice cream is hard to beat.

Go on, just do it.  This bread pudding is a great way to show off your ID :)

  • 1/4 cup SUGAR

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325°. Place bread in an 11x7 or 8x8 lightly greased baking dish.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together creamer, milk, eggs, extract and sugar. Once it's well combined, stir in toffee bits. Pour over bread.

Toffee Crunch Brownies

Toffee Crunch Brownies | Crumbs and Chaos #brownies #toffee #chocolate  www.crumbsandchaos.net

Most certainly brownies are incredible on their own.  Topped with rice krispies, chocolate and toffee?!  Absolutely dynamite!!

Brownies are well loved by most people I know – I don’t care if you have a favorite boxed mix that you like to use or a made from scratch version that’s totally amazing.  My favorite thing about this recipe – all it takes is one bowl, one whisk/spoon and a few minutes.  They can be mixed up in the time it takes you to preheat the oven.  I love the texture of the crunchy top layer, it pairs well with the fudgy brownie layer below.  So, next week surprise the brownie lover in your life with a little something different!

Mocha Toffee Trifle

Every Christmas it seems like there are endless amounts of parties with endless amounts of gift exchanges.  You know the kind where there is a spending limit and you just buy a general gift that anyone would be glad to get.  This past Christmas we went to quite a few of those, and as we arrived at our final party, I was a little “general gift exchange-d” out.  BUT… to my surprise I LOVED my gift.  It was one of the more creative gifts I’ve gotten.  I received a trifle dish, all the dry ingredients to make a trifle and a wonderful recipe.  I only had to buy 1 ingredient and assemble it and there it was.  PLUS, I get to keep the trifle dish, which is awesome because I’ve never owned one!

So, fast forward a few weeks and here I am needing a dish to take to a baby shower.  This trifle was the obvious choice!  It was so easy to put together and everyone loved it!  I will definitely be making this again and I’m sure I will find a few other recipes  so that the trifle dish gets some use!

Mocha Toffee Trifle

Ingredients

  • 1 BROWNIE MIX, prepared according to pkg directions, cooled and cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 1 3/4 cups COLD MILK
  • 2 (3.3 ounce) packages INSTANT WHITE CHOCOLATE PUDDING MIX
  • 4 teaspoons INSTANT COFFEE GRANULES
  • 2 Tablespoons WARM WATER
  • 2 cups COOL WHIP, thawed
  • 1 bag chocolate covered toffee bits

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together milk and pudding mix until mixture begins to thicken. Dissolve coffee granules in water and then stir into pudding mixture. Fold in whipped topping. In a trifle dish, layer one-third of brownie cubes, one-third of pudding mixture and one-third of toffee bits. Repeat layering until all ingredients are used. Chill 30 minutes in refrigerator before serving. ENJOY!

A Fabulous Menu for Any Fall Party (and a recipe for Caramel Apple Dip)

Are you hosting a party this fall?
We did this past weekend.  We had a blast with our family and friends.  The kids enjoyed taking our version of hay rides in the wagon of a riding lawn mower and carving pumpkins.  In the past, we have also played Minute to Win It games as well.
Most gatherings like this involve food and that is sometimes the more difficult part to plan.  I decided to make 2 different kinds of soup along with bread.  I had those coming to the party bring an appetizer or dessert.  Everything was wonderful.
This is what we enjoyed:
Rolls (these were from the freezer section)
Pumpkin Whipped Honey Butter from Not Rachael Ray (this was incredible!)
Beer Bread with Spinach Dip
Apple Cake
Spiced Cider – I put apple cider a small crockpot with cinnamon sticks, lemon slices and orange slices.  I turned it on low for a few hours.  It was delicious!
The thing that really stole the spotlight was this caramel apple dip.  I had seen it last month on Jane Deere and knew I had to have it for our party.
A Recipe for Caramel Apple Dip

An awesome accompaniment to fall's perfect fruit - this caramel apple dip will be the first thing to be gone at your next party!

  • APPLE SLICES

Instructions

Notes

*To keep apples from browning, dip them in pineapple juice after cutting.
