First of all, a huge thank you for all of your inspiring comments on Sunday’s post!  I was actually a little nervous to hit publish but I’m so glad I did.  I love this community:-)

Now, let’s get back to the desserts!  For the shower, I made some of my old favorites and a couple of new recipes.  Additionally, I made cookie brownie layer bars, a strawberry birthday cake (recipe to come!) and these Double Chocolate Minty Treats.

Coming up with the menu for an event like this is so much fun.  Just like with my Thanksgiving dinner party, I wanted to have a variety of delicious and fun pick-up desserts.  After accounting for chocolate, caramel, peanut butter and sweet and salty, I knew I needed to fill the hole for Sara’s love of chocolate with mint.  Madison’s rice krispie treat pops immediately caught my eye, but I knew I didn’t have time to make individual pops for a big crowd.  Instead, I made the rice krispie treats in their regular form and dipped them in chocolate to keep them special, fun and delicious.  It turns out these were the favorite for quite a few people so I think the recipe was definitely a success!
