So I didn’t technically get my husband a present for our anniversary. I feel kinda bad that I didn’t since he bought me a pretty pink non-cheese-eating mouse for my laptop. I did, however, make him mud pie ice cream. And it tastes pretty darn good.
Oreo cookie pieces.
Oreo cookie crumbs.
I don’t really drink coffee but use it in desserts.
I <3 Special Dark.
Homemade chocolate syrup.
Pretty, right? But wait… it’s needs a little something.
There. That’s better.
Are you a java junkie?
