Winner! (for real, this time)

We have a winner in the first ever Accidental Dessert contest.  Isn't that exciting?  Yes, yes it is.

But before we get to the winner, I wanted to share a few of my favorites.

From Jodi D:
Baskin Robbins Ice Cream Cake (at 1/2 the cost!) :-)
I looooove ice cream, and I looooove oreo cookies!  Yum!  Thanks for sharing, Jodi!

Step 1:
Choose your favorite ice cream (I have tried cookie dough, mint choc. chip, and cookies and cream...all were so yummy, but you can adjust to your taste)
Stir 1.5 quarts ice cream in a bowl, until well mixed. (this is important and you might not think it will get creamy but if you keep stirring, you'll get there)

Step 2:
Crush 1/2 package of oreo cookies. Place in bottom of a Spring Form Pan.

Step 3:
Melt 1/2 stick of butter and pour over cookies

Step 4:
Add 8 oz. Whipped Cream on top

Step 5:
Decorate with more crushed oreos (I usually do 3) and drizzle with chocolate syrup or caramel.

Step 6:

From Mom of the Wild Things:
My MIL's Coconut bars:
I want MotWT's MIL to adopt me (or actually my husband so she'll be my MIL, too)--love her!  And these bars sound a little like mounds bars...yum!  Thanks Mom of the Wild Things!  And by the way, I agree that there's no such thing as too much chocolate.

1 stick salted butter (melted)
1-2 can(s) Eagle condensed milk
1 box graham cracker crumbles
1 package coconut
1 package chocolate chips* (milk or dark)

Poor melted butter into the bottom of a standard cookie sheet. Cover bottom completely, then pour graham cracker crumbles into butter. Cover completely.

Next, poor on chocolate (Peter thinks I use too much, I just laugh. There is NO SUCH THING as too much chocolate!)

Coconut comes next, then the condensed milk. For this step, it all really depends on how gooy you want your bars to be. The more milk, the goo-y-er they will be.

Bake in a 350* oven for about 30 minutes or until the coconut is golden brown. Allow to cool before cutting.

*A good alternative is butterscotch, peanut butter or heath chips.

Thank you to everyone for submitting your delicious recipes...I'm not sure which one I want to try first!  To see them all, click here and scroll down.

And now, I would like to give special thanks to's random sequence generator for picking our winner.  The winner receives bragging rights, as the only person EVER to have won the Accidental Dessert contest, and a $20 credit to Shutterfly*.

And, the winner is...





... recipe number 10, S'More recipes, submitted by Bonnie B!  Yay Bonnie!

A special shout-out goes to my brother, who not only entered almost 50% of the recipes, but he also entered a recipe named after me!  Your DUTCH OVEN CHOCOLATE LAVA CAKE is the runner up, so you can assume the prize if Bonnie is unable to fulfil her duties as winner of the Accidental Dessert contest.

Congratulations, Bonnie, and thank you, everyone!

  1. Congratulations to Bonnie. It is probably good that someone other than me win this one so that I don't get the hate from the contest administrator next time.
