I baked a pie! Sort of...


I'm not a good baker, never have been, never will be.  I can make chocolate chip cookies, sometimes they even get screwed up.  Baking is too precise & I am not a precise person, so I cook.   That is what I can do.  But for birthdays around here I like to try to make the kids a  cake, it is always more special from mom....right?   So I stick with boxed cake mixes & icing that you buy out of a can but for my son's 15th birthday I went with a pie that I love.  When I was 17 years old I worked at a restaurant that no longer exists, it sat on a country club golf course & their specialty dessert was Mallo Cup Pie!  We would often sneak into the walk-in freezer & steal pieces of it, shoveling it in before we would get caught.

It's easy to make, but even easier to eat! 


Mallo Cup Pie

Bag of  mallo cups, frozen (you can use any size or any candy bar you want)
1 bag of Oreo Cookies
1/2 Gallon of French Vanilla Ice Cream
1 stick of Butter
1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips

Freeze your candy bar, Mallo cups, bite size candy bar pieces in the freezer for at least 1 hour.

~Take all the Oreo cookies & scrape out the creamy center, throw in garbage, trust me on this you won't need the extra calories!
~Put Oreo cookie pieces in a ziploc bag, crush it with a rolling pin, so it is fine.
~Melt butter in microwave.
~Put Oreo Pieces in a bowl, and slowly stir in melted butter.
~Press into one of those nice deep pie pans.

Freeze for 1 hour.

Take your frozen candy & put in ziploc bag, wrap in towel, bang with heavy hammer until broken up into tiny chunks.   In the meantime let you ice cream sit out until it is soft enought to stir, but NOT runny. Mix the candy in with the ice cream & stir.  Pour into your pie crust. Spread the top all nice & pretty with peaks & such, then freeze, for as long as it takes it to get hard, usually a couple hours.  Melt chocolate & drizzle on pie & freeze a little longer until the chocolate hardens.  I spoon my chocolate eon in lumps we like it that way.   ENJOY!

Candy that works well for this:  Snickers, Mallo Cups, Milky Ways, Whatchamacallits, Snickers Dark, Peppermint Pattis, Peanut Butter Cups & one of my favorites....Heath Bar!

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of troubles when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in big initial investment.
Now, I'm happy and lucky , I begin to get real money.
It's all about how to choose a proper companion who utilizes your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, and shares the profit with me.

You can get interested, if there are such firms? I have to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them:
