I've been thinking about Easter. It's coming up soon, you know. Well, I wanted to put together a variety of Spring-type desserts and foods and put them here on the blog.
Begin by making 1 carrot cake. (recipe)
Then make some cream cheese frosting by creaming 1/2 cup butter and 1 8oz pkg cream cheese. With the mixer on low, slowly add 4 cups powdered sugar. When all the powdered sugar has been incorporated, add 1 tsp vanilla.
Now comes the fun part -- crumbling the cake!! Get the kids involved if you want. There's no wrong way to do this but just make sure they break it apart good enough so there aren't big chunks.
Spoon in the cream cheese frosting (yes, ALL of it!) If you think this might be too sweet, then by all means, don't dump it all in.
I've heard people using a teaspoon, spooning some out, rolling it in their hands, and then dipping in chocolate. I didn't have that kind of time because the hubs was taking these to work so I used my small (2 Tbsp) ice cream scooper. It worked PERFECTLY!!! I really suggest going that route.
Recipes I have seen called for regular chocolate. Chocolate and carrot cake doesn't sound good to me, so I used white chocolate.
