14 Mind-blowing Dessert Lasagnas!
I guess these people never got the memo about lasagna being a dinner food – and oh man, am I glad they didn't. These innovative kitchen wizards have turned a saucy Italian cheesefest into a gourmet dessert. This is a food trend that I have NO doubt we'll be seeing soon on upscale dessert menus around the world. It's hip, it's totally different, and it's just the right amount of weird to tickle the imagination. See what you think – which one of these fantastical desserts would you most like to try? (I've tried to give credit where credit is due. All the recipes are linked below; just click on the word "Recipe." Photos belong to respective owners.) :) Chocolate Lasagna Brownies, chocolate pudding, and Oreos – oh my! Add some whipped cream, and you've got a lasagna. (I never, ever thought I would EVER say that sentence.) Recipe by Rachel Schultz, A Household Almanac Apple Pie Lasagna Let me be clear: this is not your grandmother's apple pie. Oh sure, it's got apples, cinnamon, and sugar – but it's also got caramel cream cheese filling, Heath bar toffee bites, and a touch of maple syrup. I have only one word: WANT. Recipe by Beyond Frosting Pumpkin Pie Dessert Lasagna I don't know if they necessarily needed to specify that this was a "dessert lasagna" – I think that's pretty clear from the whole "pumpkin pie" part. But I digress. We're talking pumpkin, Cool Whip, pumpkin spice chips (which exist, apparently!?) and chopped pecans. It might be 91 degrees out today, but suddenly I'm feeling a little autumnal! Recipe by The Cookie Rookie, inspired by Beyond Frosting (who is apparently our dessert lasagna MVP!) S'mores Lasagna And speaking of Beyond Frosting, she's also responsible for this dare-I-say GORGEOUS creation topped with gooey toasted marshmallows. S'mores Lasagna may be an improvement on the already impossibly wonderful campfire dessert, because it's got two types of graham cracker (original AND chocolate), marshmallow fluff, whipped cream, and – for the mess-haters among us – you can eat it with a fork. Recipe by Julianne Bayer of Beyond Frosting (the dessert lasagna goddess herself. soon we'll all be wearing t-shirts with her face on it.) Brownie Brittle Strawberry Lasagna Before we get too carried away in our decadence, Julianne (yep, we're on a first name basis now) has whipped up a lighter version of dessert lasagna featuring a cheesecake filling, dark chocolate pudding, and plenty of strawberries. See? It's got fruit! It's obviously healthy. Yet again, recipe by my idol, Julianne Bayer of Beyond Frosting Nutella Cheesecake Lasagna Okay, so maybe the photography skills are a little lacking on this one, but the concept is so flawless that I had to include it. Nutella and cheesecake, married into one perfect lasagna that is then dusted with brownie mix and chocolate chips. I can't really explain how much I'm salivating right now. (Sorry for that wonderful image.) Recipe by Modern Christian Homemaker Paleo Chocolate Lasagna Eating clean? Don't worry! We've still found the perfect dessert lasagna for you. Interesting ingredients in this one include coconut palm sugar, almond butter, apple cider vinegar, and shredded zucchini. I won't pretend to understand how it all works, but I will trust the author when she says it's delicious. Maybe. Recipe by Vanessa Barejas of Clean Eating with a Dirty Mind (which is an awesome name for a blog) Fabulous Fruit Lasagna Whoa, a dessert lasagna that actually uses noodles! I bet you were wondering when one of these was gonna show up. This lasagna is a delightful conglomeration of fresh berries, mascarpone and ricotta cheeses, brown sugar, nutmeg, cloves, and a pinch of chili powder. Not what I was expecting! It can also be made, the author suggests, with chocolate pasta. Recipe by F.H. Browne, posted on Just a Pinch Chocolate Toast Crunch Lasagna Did you know that Cinnamon Toast Crunch has a chocolaty cousin? Chocolate Toast Crunch adds a special, well, crunchiness to this dessert lasagna. Its creamy filling has a hint of almond flavor. Mmm. Recipe by Cheeky Kitchen, posted on Tablespoon Frozen Snickers Peanut Butter Lasagna It's been pretty hot out, so why not stick your dessert lasagna in the freezer? Dry roasted peanuts, caramel sauce, and little pieces of Snickers? This is exactly what I want to be eating right now. Recipe by Not Your Momma's Cookie Oreo Pumpkin Lasagna Maybe you can't get enough of dessert lasagnas. Maybe you want to try more than one of them. Why not do it at the same time? This recipe is a combination of pumpkin pie and Oreo dessert lasagnas – and I can't think of a single reason it wouldn't be delicious. Recipe by Kitchen Nostalgia Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Lasagna But come on guys, let's be real: this is the dessert lasagna you've been waiting for. Layers of creamy and chocolatey deliciousness topped with mini Reese's cups? Game over. Recipe by Marty's Musings Chocolate Candy Lasagna This take on chocolate lasagna tops it off with yummy and colorful crushed M&Ms! And then you have your choice between caramel and hot fudge drizzle toppings. But I say, Vinglers... why not both? Recipe by Princess Pinky Girl (yes, that is her real name) Chocolate Lasagna 2.0 And finally, we've got one last spin on chocolate lasagna from Center Cut Cook. It features a thick Oreo crust, a sweet whipped cream cheese filling, chocolate pudding, and lots of tiny chocolate chips. I think the width of the crust layer and the crunchiness of the mini-chips set it apart from other versions! Recipe by Center Cut Cook Which one of these crazy creations are you trying first?

Caramel Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies
These look simply incredible. Two of my favorite things, chocolate chip cookies and caramel, combined into one heavenly cookie creation. I was looking for more caramel recipes (because that's what I do in my spare time, duh) when I found this recipe from Table for Two. I mean, can you even imagine anything more perfect?!? Look at that gooey, warm caramel. Those molten chocolate chunks. That perfectly chewy cookie. Imagine how good these are fresh out of the oven. Caramel Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies Prep Time: 10 min. Cook Time: 13 min. Difficulty: Easy Recipe adapted from Table for Two Ingredients 3 sticks (1½ cup) unsalted butter, softened 1½ cup dark brown sugar, packed ½ cup granulated sugar 2 eggs 4 tsp. vanilla extract 2 cups all-purpose flour 2 cups bread flour (you may use all-purpose flour instead if you don't have it on hand) 4 tsp. cornstarch 2 tsp. baking soda 1 tsp. salt 1½ cups chocolate chunks ½ cup dark chocolate, finely chopped 18 caramel candies, cut in half to give you 36 Directions 1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. In a large bowl, whisk together the flours, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt. In another mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugar until fluffy (about 2 mins). Add eggs and vanilla. Beat 2 more mins. 2. Gradually add flour mixture, beating until fully incorporated. Fold in chocolate chips with a spatula. To form the cookies, take a spoonful of dough, and use your thumb to make a small hole and press the caramel into the center. Re-roll the ball to cover the caramel candy. 3. Bake for 11-13 minutes. They may look quite soft at this point, but remember they will continue to cook after you remove them from the oven. Allow them to cool completely on baking sheet, or else they'll break and caramel will ooze everywhere. Enjoy, my fellow cookie monsters!! This one's for @JPBenedetto – maybe you could find a way to work in some oatmeal here, for a little extra chew? :D <3 @Luci546 @MooshieBay @InPlainSight You guys might like this one as well :)

Perkembangan zaman yang makin mengalami kemajuan sudah memberikan cara pengolahan buah dengan nilai jual yang lumayan tinggi. Yaitu dengan memnfaatkannya untuk keripik buah. Pengolahan keripik buah diproduksi menggunakan satu mesin yang bernama mesin vacuum frying. Begitu banyak aneka jenis buah ataupun sayuran yang berpotensi untuk dijadikan keripik.

Kalau ingin produksi keripik buah kamu juga bisa dinikmati kalangan bawah tentu kamu juga harus menyesuaikan harga yang murah dan bentuk sederhana.

Sesudah pemilihan buah dengan kualitas buah yang baik yang segar dan bagus. Lalu buah dikupas dan dibersihkan dari kotoran ataupun bagian yang tidak bisa dimakan. Sesudah pengupasan lanjut dengan pencucian buah, sebaiknya cuci buah dengan air yang mengalir supaya terbebas dari kotoran yang melekat pada buah. Selanjutnya ke tahapan perajangan buah yang bentuknya bisa disesusaikan dengan keinginan. Kemudian langsung ke tahapan penggorengan yaitu menggunakan mesin tertentu yang dinamakan mesin vacuum frying atau mesin keripik buah. Sesudah buah mengering maka keripik buah matang dan dapat diangkat lalu dapat langsung ditiriskan menggunakan mesin peniris minyak. Proses penirisan minyak ini juga mempunyai peranan penting supaya keripik menjadi tahan lama serta lebih awet. Tahap Pengemasan Keripik Buah Keripik yang sudah jadi dapat langsung dikemas menggunakan mesin pengemasan. Dalam pengemasan juga dibutuhkan tampilan yang menarik dan bagus.

Love Girl Scout Cookies? Try This Homemade Thin Mints Recipe
Once in a while, I have a serious Thin Mint craving. Okay, scratch that. I have a serious Thin Mint craving every moment of every day. I've bought three boxes of shoddy, knock-off "Mint Thins" in the past two weeks (true story). But there's nothing quite like the original – until now. This recipe faithfully recreates this all-American favorite, down to appearance and texture. Folks rave about them. I haven't tried them yet, but I plan to as soon as possible. If you try your hand at putting those pesky Girl Scouts out of business (jk), let me know how it goes! Copycat Recipe: Thin Mints Cookie Ingredients 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature 1 cup cocoa powder 1 cup powdered sugar 1 tsp. vanilla extract 3/4 tsp. salt 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour Coating Ingredients 16 oz. semi-sweet baking chocolate 1 1/2 tsp. peppermint oil 1.) Pre-heat the oven to 350°F. In a large mixing bowl, cream butter until it has a light, fluffy consistency. Add the powdered sugar; mix until combined. Stir in salt, vanilla, and cocoa powder. At this point, the mixture should resemble a thick frosting. Add flour, and mix until just combined. Do not overmix. 2.) Time to use your hands a little. Form the dough into a ball and knead a few times, then flatten it into a disk about an inch thick, wrap in plastic wrap, and place it in the freezer for 15 minutes. 3.) Once dough has chilled, remove it from the freezer and roll it out to a thickness of about 1/8 inch. For a classic look, cut out cookies with a round cookie cutter or small glass with a diameter of between 1 1/2 in. and 2 in. 4.) Bake cookies on an ungreased cookie sheet for 10 minutes. Cool on wire rack. Meanwhile, prepare the peppermint chocolate coating. Slowly melt chocolate, using short bursts of heat in the microwave, or by using/simulating a double boiler. Stir in peppermint oil. 5.) Using a fork, gently lower cookies one at a time into the coating. Turn to coat entirely, then lift out with fork, allowing extra chocolate to drip off before placing cookie on a parchment or plastic-lined cookie sheet. Refrigerate chocolate-coated cookies for 15-30 minutes to allow them to set. Recipe adapted from The View From Great Island There you have it! Your own homemade Thin Mints. Time to throw out the store-bought "Mint Thins" and scarf down a couple of these bad boys.
