where have i been?

Am I the only one who just heard about Bakerella? These cupcakes and other treats are gorgeous! Sweets for the eyes and the tummy! I'm in awe of these images and the recipes. They're obviously not good for my mission to lose the "newlywed ten" (pounds, that is), but I'll dream of making them for a special occasion.


Chocolate and Peanut Butter Ribbon Dessert

12 Nutter Butter Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies, divided
2 Tbsp. butter, melted
1 pkg. (8 oz.) Philadelphia Cream Cheese, softened
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
1 tub (12 oz.) Cool Whip Whipped Topping, thawed, divided
2 squares Baker's Semi-Sweet Chocolate, melted

Crush 8 of the cookies in resealable plastic bag with rolling pin. Mix cookie crumbs and butter. Press onto bottom of foil-lined 9x5-inch loaf pan.


Mix cream cheese, peanut butter, sugar and vanilla with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Gently stir in 3 cups of the whipped topping. Spoon 1/2 cup of the cream cheese mixture into small bowl. Stir in melted chocolate until well blended; set aside. Spoon half of the remaining cream cheese mixture over crust. Top evenly with chocolate mixture; cover with remaining cream cheese mixture.


Freeze 4 hours or overnight until firm. Invert onto plate. Remove foil, then re-invert onto serving platter so that crumb layer is on bottom. Coarsely break the remaining 4 cookies. Top dessert with remaining whipping topping and cookies.
