Do you know what is better than M&M’S®? A Chocolate M&M’s Icebox Cake decorated with M&M’s, AND Captain America: The Winter Soldier for a movie night at home, that’s what! In case you don’t believe me, let me just tell you what exactly would happen if I surprised my superhero loving daughter with a Captain America movie night, with a side of M&M topped dessert.
She would scream. Did you hear me? SCREAM. Seriously… it would probably be more like a squeal, and you’d want to cover your ears for sure. I know I would.
So, that’s on the agenda… because there is nothing more amazing than surprising your child to the point where they are just so excited they can’t even contain them-self, right?
Whenever I want to make a recipe in a hurry that I know everyone will like, I immediately think of an icebox cake. This bright and cheery M&M’s Icebox Cake literally took 10 minutes to make, and I’d wager to bet that you more than likely have many of the ingredients at home already. Well… you do if you keep things like chocolate pudding mix, milk, whipped topping, and graham crackers on hand. Oh yeah, and we can’t forget the key ingredient: M&M’s!
When I was at Walmart the other day, I stocked up on all my dessert making supplies (and M&M’s!) because I don’t like having to run out to the store to buy one or two things every day. When I stock up, I’m less likely to have to do that. Lucky for me (or my daughter anyway!) they had Captain America at the store too, and it looked like it was going fast.
This double-dose of chocolate is RICH and delicious. I’d suggest a tall glass of milk to serve alongside dessert, but hey… that will just make your superhero’s bones a little bit stronger, right?
