Are you kidding me..??

...this post is all about ICE CREAM and things related.....
We have had weather more like spring than the last part of February..
temps in the 80's makes us think of ICE CREAM...

Mr. Sweet and I love it...
he likes it more than I do......but......I like it.
He goes for plain Vanilla most of the time
but enjoys different toppings...
Last summer, I bought some cute ice cream bowls...

at PIER 1 during their end of summer sale...

big enuf

good for ice cream
you name it...

I like the bright colors.

 I also picked up this large mug that holds just the right amount of ice cream, too.
"they aren't just for coffee and tea, ya know....:)

and a cool tray at that.
I snagged this cutiePie tray at PIER 1 at the same end of summer SALE.
The neat jar holding PEANUTS was a 1/2 price item at Pier 1..
The large jar with "eat" on it came from Walmart...
The other 3 awesome jar canisters were bought at our local
flea market....$7.00 for the set of 3 and in PERFECT condition.

this ice cream cone painting
is random but just wanted to show those that didn't see it last summer..

found it at GOODWILL
and knew in an instant that
DEEDS, our youngest grandgirl, would like it a lot.
She plans to hang it in her room at the lake house.
 Sorry, I keep getting off track here...
 Sooo, getting back to the meat of this post...

I found, online, a blog, Pinterest....just not sure where,
a recipe for
get outa town....
well...I HAD to try it.
I made only 1/2 this recipe and got a full pint jar.


It is a breeze to make...


So out came the cute bowls,
Pretty much everyone that knows me for 15 minutes knows I love

I didn't have a cherry to put on top...BOO

this is so good, i can just eat it with a spoon...
the recipe again...

 do you see all that rich, chocolate luv down there in the bottom....

Now, since the Hot Fudge Sauce has no preservatives,
I need to figure out how to keep the jar from spoiling before we can eat it all..
We don't eat THAT much ice cream...
wonder if it freezes well...
I'll google.

Blue Monday 
No Place Like Home Mon.
Ruby Tues.
Tweak it Tues.


  1. The bowls are fabulous and you filled them with a delightful treat!

  2. This reminds me of something that happened in school. In winter time those who sat outside would mostly migrate inside. Somebody was missing from the table and another person said where he was "leaning against a wall, without a jacket, eating ice-cream".

  3. Giant YUM. Great eye candy too. Thanks BJ.

  4. I would definitely eat that hot fudge with a spoon! There wouldn't be any left for ice cream.

  5. So funny that you posted this - I love eating a spot of ice cream out of a mug :)

  6. Those bowls are just so much fun!! Enjoy your ice cream and hot fudge sauce. Thinking that is something I have to do again very soon we are out of chocolate sauce for our ice cream.

    God bless.

  7. I have a rhubarb topping I am putting on our ice cream at the moment, of course you really need vanilla ice cream or it just tastes a bit strange. The fudge one is a tryer as well I think.


  8. Oh, YUM!!! Thank you for the recipe!!!

  9. My favorite . . .
    Vanilla ice cream, homemade chocolate sauce, pecans, cherry . . .
    Now I need to get it out of my mind, too late for ice cream . . .
    Love the ice cream picture . . . lucky Deeds!

  10. How delicious! I sometimes make a melted Mars Bar sauce which is a bit similar, not sure if you have Mars bars in US?

  11. Oh, my, and I'm trying to eat less sugar! We love the Dairy Queen Mini Blizzards....turtle pecan for me.

  12. Pier 1 has such great stuff, doesn't it? Things you can't find anywhere else!

  13. Hi BJ. Sounds like you're having a really nice winter there this year, just as we are up here in the northeast of Canada. I mean, it's still winter and cold and we get snow but it's much better than last year for sure! I love ice cream and sundaes too. I'll take mine with chocolate sauce and sometimes butterscotch sauce. It's nice to find a recipe for chocolate sauce which would be great to serve at a party then you don't have to worry about it spoiling. :) Have a great week! Pam

  14. Not quite ice cream weather in the Pacific Northwest, but it certainly is time for some bright colors - your post brightened this Monday!

  15. Oh my goodness, that hot fudge sundae! I'm drooling ...

  16. Oh BJ,

    I do believe that we are sisters from another mother/father! My Daddy used to call me Sassy. My favorite food is ice cream. Hot fudge sundaes are my joy.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Have a Happy Blue Monday!

  17. I love me some hot fudge sauce too. That sure looks good. I'll have to try it!

  18. I love your cheery bowls. Lately I've had an ice cream thing going too -- and that is NOT a good thing! But there's something about it -- comforting and delicious and cold and clean. Yum!

  19. Your bowls are cute BJ and the recipe sounds soooooooo goooood. I do love ice-cream I crave cold and creamy when it's hot and sticky ;-)

  20. What a happy, cheery, yummy post, bj! I have a jar of homemade fudge sauce in the fridge right now. I'll check the link you gave to compare. I could eat it by the spoonful!! I think you've given me an excuse to have some for dessert at lunch!!

  21. BJ: Those bowls are so cheery and even more so with the addition of ice cream! Gotta make that sauce. Love hot fudge sundaes..Thanks for sharing it..Happy Week to you..Judy

  22. Love your ice cream bowls . Thanks for sharing the recipe for the topping. Have a blessed day. Madeline

  23. This post is just so cheerful, bj! Of course with all the bright colors and ice-cream with homemade hot fudge... how can it not be? ;)

    I hope Mr. Sweet is feeling better and that his gout has gone away again. My brother has it and I know it's a miserable thing to have.

    Oh and I will always read you blog... you're one of my dearest Blogfriends and I love you :)


  24. Looking at these yummy-licious photos is going to postpone by losing weight plan. Lol!

  25. BJ, I like vanilla ice cream too but it has to have a topping. My hubby likes flavours. Regardless, that chocolate sauce looks awesome! I make a caramel sauce myself but will have to try this chocolate too. I have those same little bowls only mine are in pastels. Thanks for sharing your tasty post with us.


  26. Did you say "ice cream" because it is warm here too I am so ready to pull my little machine out! Love the colorful bowls and the toppings tray, yum. I'll have a big bowl of vanilla with toppings :)
    Hope your week is off to a great start.

  27. Hello bj, Wow, and I do not have any ice cream in the house. Sigh. My absolute favorite is a hot fudge sundae with vanilia ice cream and the works. Love the bowls too.

    Have a wonderful week.
    Love to you my sweet sister friend.

  28. You make me want ice cream:) I know that this was REALLY delicious! Enjoy your week dear B.J. BIG HUGS!
