ThatsQuirky: Here’s a really easy sweet treat for those hot summer afternoons - basil lemonade popsicles!Ingredients:
- Lemonade Mix
- Fresh Basil Leaves
Follow the listed directions for your lemonade and add ripped up basil to the mix. Pop in the fridge and let the lemonade soak up the basil for an hour or so. When the mix is to your taste, pour into popsicle mold, wait until frozen (about 4 hours) and enjoy!
Have you made your own popsicles before? I’d love to hear what flavors!
1 (21 oz) can cherry or blueberry pie filling
1 package yellow or white cake mix
8 tablespoons butter, cut up
1/2 C. chopped pecans or walnuts, toasted if you have time
Rub the slow cooker generously with some of the butter. Place pie filling in the slow cooker. Mix dry cake mix and remaining butter until crumbly, sprinkle over filling. Sprinkle with nuts. Cover and cook on low for 2 – 3 hours. Serve warm in bowls.
Top with whipped cream or serve side by side with a scoop of very cold vanilla ice cream.
Notes: Try using a different pie filling such as blueberry or peach. Goes very well with ice cream!
To halve the recipe, use half can or more pie filling, 1 3/4 cup cake mix, 4 tablespoons butter and half the amount of nuts. Use this version for small model crockpots.
If you don’t have a crockpot and want to make a small version, use the half version and bake it in a 9 inch deep dish glass pie plate or an 8 inch square pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes or until cake mix is golden brown. And of course, you can also make the full version in a 13×9 inch cake pan. It’s dump cake! Easiest recipe ever.
I’m sure this recipe could be healthier and still delicious with brown rice, ground turkey and regular cheese.
