German Chocolate Cupcakes - Celebrating Mads

In my family, we love to celebrate every day. Whether it is big or small, I like to make a big deal out of things. When I learned that Cool Whip came out with a new line of Frosting I KNEW I had to incorporate it in our next celebration.

On Wednesday we had our first Parent Teacher Conference of the year for Miss Mads. I was very anxious as some of the papers that have been sent home weren't that great. There have been a lot of corrections and some confusion with some of her letters.

Hubby and I spent nearly an hour and a half talking with her teacher and going over things.  In the classroom Mads is doing excellent! In fact, she received an 'Excellent' mark on every single in class things such as listening, doing what is told, helping others, etc.  YAY! We also learned that she is ahead in math and reading and is nearly a full year ahead on word recognition!  WooHoo!  Goooo Mads!

I had already planned on celebrating the first 9 weeks being over but now, I had even MORE to celebrate and the cupcakes I had planned on making were turned into something much more worthy.

German Chocolate Cupcakes
Makes 24

For Cake:
1 Box German Chocolate Cake Mix
Egg, Water and Oil called for on box

For Topping:
Chocolate Cool Whip Frosting
Pecans for Garnish
Toasted Coconut for Garnish

Mix and bake cupcakes according to package directions.
Remove from oven and allow to cool completly.
While Cupcakes are cooling, toast your coconut, I used about 1/2-1 C, and make your sauce {recipe below}
Once Cupcakes are cool, top with Chocolate Cool Whip Frosting.
Sprinkle with Pecans and then drizzle with German Chocolate Sauce.

German Chocolate Sauce
1 Egg
2/3 C Evaporated Milk
2/3 C Sugar
1/4 C Butter

In a medium saucepan, slightly beat egg.
Add all of the remaining ingredients over medium heat.
Continue to stir for 5-8 minutes or until mixture is thick.
Once thick, remove from heat and allow to cool completely.
Once cool, drizzle over Cupcakes.

The true test though was if Mads would like them, after all we were celebrating her!

They passed the smell test!  If anything passes the smell test, it then and only then moves on to a taste test.

And the verdict?  She LOVED them!  WooHoo!!

Have you tried the new Cool Whip Frosting yet? It is a great topping for many desserts! We tried all three favors, Vanilla, Cream Cheese and Chocolate.  My favorite? The Chocolate, hands down! It was like eating an amazingly creamy chocolate mousse. The Cream Cheese was my least favorite.

FROZEN Hot Chocolate

I am sure by now, most of you know that FROZEN the Movie is coming to theaters THIS WEEK (the 27th to be exact)! I am so excited!! My girls saw some of the FROZEN merchandise while we were at Walt Disney World and that is all they could talk about.....for days! It has been a rough school year for both of the girls so far. Mads is adjusting to being in the upper elementary, was dealing with a bully and gets super frustrated with math (even though she is really good at it). MG is adjusting to actually being in school, went through a time of having accidents at school and she just misses her mommy. To celebrate Mads good grades and MG going a month accident free, I decided to treat the girls with a few fun new toys and some hot chocolate. Once I heard that FROZEN merchandise was available at Walmart, I ran to stock up. While I was there, it hit me! I could have #Frozenfun with the hot chocolate and make FROZEN Hot chocolate! I just knew the girls would love it! I was k

Le Cellier - Chedder Cheese Soup Recipe Review

I first talked about this soup here .   I have to admit, was not real eager to try this soup.  I can not stand the taste of beer.  PERIOD!  It doesn't take much in a recipe for me to be able to taste it.  With that being said, the soup wasn't bad.  I would try it with ginger ale next time though. Before I tell you what I thought of the soup I need to be fair and tell you about some changes I made to the recipe. First, the recipe tells you to cook the bacon just to render out the fats, not to make crispy.  I did not render out enough of the fats and in fact next time, I would cook the bacon until it IS crispy.  I don't like limp bacon, I like my bacon extra crispy. Second, I TOTALLY forgot to cook down the onions and celery before adding the flour!  Ummmm......ooops! So my bacon was limp and my veggies were crispy!  HAHA! Next, I am not on a budget to be able to purchase "Aged White Cheddar" so good ol Yellow Sharp Cheddar it was! I did NOT add one tablespoo

Strawberries and Cream Instant Oatmeal | Recipe

I don't know about you but, we go through oatmeal like that is the only thing to eat on this planet!   Seriously a TON! My youngest would eat it for every meal and snack....every day....if I let her. Yes, the little packs can be cheap (if you can find a coupon and get them on sale) but it still adds up.  I used things I already had on hand so there was no extra cost to make this.  FREE is ALWAYS good!   I tried before to make little packets to keep on hand but that was a complete fail.  I have since reworked the recipe and am happy with the results.  I decided to just keep the oatmeal in a glass container this time and scoop out what we need, when we need it.  You can also make this into packets by just scooping the desired amount into zip-top bags. {Strawberries & Cream Instant Oatmeal}   12 Servings 6 Cups Quick Cook Oats 1 1/2 Cups Oat Powder 2 Cups Powdered Milk 1 - 1 1/2 Cup Sugar 1 Cup Freeze Dried Strawberries Directions f
