Transform ice cream into a homemade pie; give ordinary cupcakes a gourmet topping; or whip up a dessert dip using a box of brownie mix. Here you'll find the easiest-ever desserts to make for Mother's Day.
Turn Cupcakes into Turtle-Topped Cakes
Place 6 Hy-Vee Bakery frosted chocolate cupcakes on a platter. Drizzle with caramel and chocolate syrup. Garnish with Hy-Vee pecan pieces.
Turn Sugar Cookies into Truffles
We call this recipe Christmas Cookie Truffles, but they're just as delicious for Mother's Day. And they only call for 4 ingredients.
Turn Brownies and Ice Cream into Cake
Line a 9x5-inch loaf pan with parchment paper leaving 1-inch of paper hanging over each side. Spoon in your favorite flavor of ice cream and top with a layer of brownies. Cover and freeze for 8 to 24 hours. To serve, use parchment to lift dessert out of pan and peel off parchment paper.
Turn Banana Bread into Truffles
Place Hy-Vee Bakery banana bread in a large mixing bowl. Using your hands, crumble banana bread into fine crumbs. Add enough cream cream cheese frosting to get banana bread to stick together. Roll into 2-inch balls. Melt vanilla almond bark according to package directions. Using two forks, dip truffles into almond bark letting excess drip off. Place onto a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper and refrigerate until set.
Turn Ice Cream into Pie
Slightly thaw your favorite ice cream until it is soft enough to scoop. Spread ice cream evenly into a ready-to-use graham cracker or chocolate crumb pie crust. Top with nuts, sprinkles, caramel sauce, or whatever Mom's favorite topping is and freeze. Keep frozen until ready to serve.
Turn Brownie Mix Into a Chocolate Fondue
Place 3 Hy-Vee Bakery donut holes on a 10-inch bamboo or wooden skewer; set aside. In a large bowl, combine a box of brownie mix, 3 6-oz containers of vanilla yogurt and 2 cups of frozen whipped topping (thawed), stirring until smooth. Then get dipping.
P.S. This is also fantastic with strawberries, bananas, angel food cake, and graham crackers.
