Recipe: Fruit & Brownie Kabobs

Mrs. Fields Secrets Fruit and Brownie Kabob
Here’s an easy, delicious summertime dessert that requires no preheating of the oven, no baking, no cooling, just straight-to-the-mouth goodness. Well, maybe one slight detour at a bamboo skewer, but you get the idea. Everybody loves Mrs. Fields Brownies already, but cut them into bite-sized pieces, add them to a skewer with some fresh strawberries and you have beautiful,  portable dessert, just perfect for summer entertaining.

And did you know, our Brownies freeze beautifully, so you can order and keep some on hand all summer long for last-minute entertaining (or midnight snacking)! So, yes, you can send one of our Brownie Gifts to a friend or loved one, but you can also send some to yourself and give your oven a summer vacation!

Fruit and Brownie Kabobs

12 bamboo skewers
6 Mrs. Fields Brownies
28 strawberries, washed and stemmed

Directions
Skewer 4 strawberries and 3 brownie bites onto each bamboo skewer and chill until serving.

How do you answer a craving for cake in the summer without preheating the oven? This cake is the answer. Built from a tower of criss-crossed ice cream sandwiches, this cake stands tall and square and ready to satisfy your sweet tooth without any baking required. Plus, you can customize it any which way with your favorite flavored ice cream sandwiches to make it entirely your own! (Plus, it’s pretty!)

Ice Cream Sandwich Cake

12 ice cream sandwiches
1 carton whipped topping
peanut butter sundae syrup
chocolate magic shell topping

Directions
Lay three ice cream sandwiches on a freezer-safe serving plate to form a square. Drizzle a little peanut butter syrup across the top to serve as a binding agent, then layer three more on top in the opposite direction. Repeat the process until you have four layers and a complete cube. Next, frost the cake with the whipped topping and freeze again for about 20-30 minutes, or until whipped topping becomes firm. Finally, drizzle a generous amount of peanut butter and magic shell syrup all over the cake, allowing some to run down the sides. Freeze again before serving.

Here’s a peek at the pre-frosted cake:

Recipe: Watermelon Cupcakes

Mrs. Fields Secrets Watermelon Cupcakes

These lookalike watermelon cupcakes are an easy peasy way to dress up a regular cupcake with a fun summer theme. You can make this as easy as you like (with your favorite boxed mix) or more decadent with our from-scratch recipe. Both variations are below, and both are worth treating your tastebuds (and your family) to.

Watermelon Cupcakes

for cupcakes
2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup shortening
1 cup milk
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 eggs
1-2 tablespoons red food coloring
2/3 cup miniature chocolate chips

for frosting
5 tablespoons flour
1 cup whole milk
1 cup butter (room temperature)
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
5-10 drops green food coloring

Directions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line muffin tins with cupcake liners. In a medium bowl, whisk dry ingredients together: flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. In a mixing bowl, cream sugar and shortening together until light and fluffy. Add in eggs, one at a time, until well incorporated. Alternate adding small amounts of the flour mixture and the milk and mixing after each. Finally, stir in the vanilla and food coloring and mix until just combined. Finally, add the chocolate chips and mix until just incorporated. Fill cupcake liners 2/3 full with batter and bake for 15-18 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Allow to cool before frosting.

To make the frosting, mix flour and milk together in a double boiler over medium heat, stirring constantly with a whisk, until a thick paste forms. Cool mixture completely (you can use the fridge or freezer to speed it up). Cream butter at high speed until it is light and creamy. Add the sugar and blend until fluffy. Take a generous scoop of the sugar/butter mixture and add it to the cooled flour/milk mixture and blend it well. Add all of the flour/milk mixture to the sugar/butter mixture and beat until fluffy and light. Finally, add vanilla and food coloring and mix well. Spread on cooled cupcakes.

Boxed Mix Variation
Prepare your favorite boxed yellow cake mix as directed, then add 1-2 tablespoons red food coloring and 2/3 cup miniature chocolate chips to the batter. Bake as directed.
