Favorite Desserts

I was thinking about my favorite desserts the other day. I like a lot of desserts, but are my faves:
* Anything with carmel & chocolate together (mmmmmm!)
* Plain cheesecake (or could have raspberry or chocolate w/ carmel topping)
* French Silk Pie (drizzle some carmel on the top and you have heaven!)
* Dolly Madison Raspberry Zingers (not a big fan of coconut, but you don't taste the coconut in these, just the raspberry)
* Plain vanilla ice cream or even better with carmel sauce on it (don't really like the hot fudge stuff though) Haagen Dazs makes a Light Dulce de Leche that is fabulous.

Ok - so give any dessery with raspberry in it and I love it or stuff with carmel & chocolate together.

My favorite candy bars are carmello & Rolos - go figure, huh! Or those hershey kisses w/ carmel in them.

Do you have an ice cream maker?

Cuz...I have a killer caramel ice cream (low fat) recipe at home. Let me know if you want it. It's super easy. More of an ice milk...but I like it.

I would like both of them.

Yes, I do have an ice cream maker.

Have you had key lime cheesecake or pumpkin cheesecake. Pumpkin ice cream too is the shiznit!

This one is also most excellent.

2 cans jellied cranberry
13 oz. lemon-lime drink

With mixer, blend cranberry until smooth. Slowly add in lemon lime. Place in ice cream maker for about 30 minutes. Put in freezer safe container for another 30 minutes if you want it's a little slushy after just the ice cream maker.

I think I may have to make the carmel ice cream this weekend. I just need to go buy ice. I have everything else. Although I will probably make it with whole milk.... I like homemade ice cream with whole milk.

I have made pumpkin cheesecake and still prefer plain, never made key lime.

I have made a flourless hazelnut chocolate cake. That I liked.
