Recipe Box, 2 Easy Breezy Summer Desserts

 

I tweaked 2 favorite recipes to share today, easy breezy summer desserts

 

Zucchini cookies are a perfect summer cookie

 

 

 

 

 

I tweaked my original recipe, White Chocolate Chip Zucchini Cookies, by adding butterscotch chips too

 

 

 

 

 

They are easy to make, not to mention very tasty, and at least there is a healthy ingredient in there!

See recipe at end of this post

You can see the original recipe and more photos here

 

I also tweaked the Bushwacker Ice Cream Recipe

 

 

Bushwackers are a favorite cocktail, or “adult milkshake” on our part of the Gulf Coast, usually made with rum and several liqueurs, chocolate syrup, and ice cream

For this recipe, I changed some of the liqueurs, using only Baileys and Coconut Rum Liqueur, Cool Whip and sweetened condensed milk

 

 

 

 

Instead of a spoon of dark chocolate sauce

 

 

 

 

I used chocolate syrup

 

 

 

 

I swirled it in with a knife after mixing the other ingredients

 

 

 

 

I didn’t mix it too much because I wanted the swirls to show…

 

 

 

 

You can also make it into an ice cream pie and serve it with chocolate sauce on top

Bushwacker Ice Cream Pie

This is definitely adults only ice cream!

Two great recipes for summer!

    Love your tweaked recipes Jenna! I had to chuckle at your Bushwacker ice cream warning, “eat responsibly!’ As far as I’m concerned that warning label should be printed on every carton in the grocery store…we can’t keep it in the house! 😉
