Ding Dong Mummy Ingredients

Just melt the candy wafers according to package directions and use a spoon to drizzle side to side over the Ding Dongs. Add two eyes while the white candy is still wet and then let dry.

They’re cute to pop in a bag to hand out to family, friend or classmates.

Or add a stick if that suits your fancy. I just covered a popsicle stick with washi tape slid it in the side and added a bow.

Either way, this spooky treat is all set to spread some Halloween cheer!

Apple Cinnamon Muffins with Gallamore West

Hi, I’m Laurie and I blog at Gallamore West.  I’m a mom of four little boys and I blog about sweet recipes, fun crafts, and ways to make lasting memories with our kids.  I’m thrilled to be here at A Little Tipsy today while Michelle hangs out with her newest little adorable man!  I had been following Michelle in the online world for awhile, but we met in person at a blogging conference in Utah in the spring and she is a sweetheart, and a fellow member of the “Boy Mom” Club!  
I’m excited to share my recipe for Apple Cinnamon Muffins with you today because they are delicious and fairly healthy too.  They’re sweet enough to satisfy that darn sweet tooth of mine, but healthy enough to make me feel like I’m being a good mom when I make them for our boys for breakfast.


Apple Cinnamon Spice Muffins
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup apple sauce
1/4 cup white sugar
2/3 cup packed light brown sugar
2 eggs
1/3 cup milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 cups all-purpose floor
1 1/2 cups peeled & diced Granny Smith apples
1/4 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon 
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare muffin tin with paper baking papers, or spray with nonstick spray.  Pour apple sauce, sugars, and melted butter into bowl of stand mixer to combine.  Add in eggs, one at a time, until smooth.  Slowly add in milk and vanilla.  Set aside.  In a large bowl, whisk together all dry ingredients.  Slowly add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, and stir just until combined.  Fold in the peeled, diced apples.  Fill paper liners about 2/3 full.  In a small bowl, stir together the 1/4 cup white sugar & the cinnamon.  Sprinkle each muffin with cinnamon and sugar mixture.  Bake for 20 minutes.  Remove muffins from tin carefully and cool completely on a wire rack.   Store in an airtight container for up to 4 days.  Enjoy!  


I’d love to have you stop by Gallamore West to see what else I’ve been up to.  Here are a few of my Fall Favorites…




Chocolate Banana Twinkie Cake with Today’s Creative Blog

Hello everyone, I’m filling in for Michelle while she snuggles on that baby! I’m Kim from Today’s Creative Blog and where I share all things creative and inspiring. I love sharing practical ways to decorate your home, like my son’s teen bedroom or delicious Crockpot meals for my Slow Cooker Sunday’s.

No Bake Chocolate Banana Twinkie Cake

Today I’m sharing a super easy NO Bake Chocolate Banana Twinkie Cake. “Easy” and “No Bake” are sometimes the best words you’ll ever read when searching for a dessert recipe. No Bake Twinkie Cake |

I have a teen son who is always hungry. Always! It’s not uncommon to have 3 or 4 teen boys roaming around our home and it’s best if I keep them fed. I usually try to offer something with a little nutrition, but there are times, they just want good ole American junk food. This is when Twinkies come in.

Boys can put away a box of Twinkies in about 5 minutes, so I figured they would also enjoy this no bake cake. It is SO easy to put together, perfect if you’re in a pinch for dessert and it’s pretty tasty.

How to Make a No Bake Chocolate Banana Twinkie Cake

All you need is a small box of chocolate pudding (I used cook and serve, but instant would work too), a box of Twinkies, banana’s and whipped cream.

Using a 9 x 13 in baking dish, I started by unwrapping about 9 or 10 Twinkies, then cutting them in half.

Lay them in your pan, creamy side up.

Add Banana’s – I slices up 3 large banana’s and placed them on top of the Twinkies. This is where I couldn’t decide if I wanted to put the pudding first, then the banana’s…..either way would work and since my pudding was still cooling, I went ahead and assembled my banana’s.

Add Pudding – Once my pudding was finished, I poured it over the banana’s and Twinkies. Then place in your fridge to cool. I didn’t let it cool because I had teen boys ready to eat.

When you don’t let it cool, the whipped cream kinda melts……..but guess what? Teen boys could care less.

I thought about making real whipped cream, but again……the spray whip was so much faster and I knew they wouldn’t appreciate the difference. I sprayed the entire can over the pudding and should have placed it back in the fridge, but my son had a spatula out and ready. So I handed it over, but did beg for a quick photo.

It’s not pretty, but it was pretty good. You can see that the whipped topping was starting to melt.

Had I been making it for any other occasion, I would have been more patient to let the pudding cool. Using instant would have been a good choice.

No Bake Chocolate Banana Twinkie Cake

  • 9 – 10 Twinkies
  • 1 small box of cook and serve or instant chocolate pudding.
  • 3 large banana’s
  • 1 spray can whipped cream. (cool whip or whipped cream works too)

Cut Twinkies in half and assemble in a 9 x 13 baking dish with the creamy side up. Layer banana’s over the Twinkies. Spread pudding over the banana’s and Twinkies. Let it cool if you’re using the cook and serve type. Once it’s cool, add whipped cream to the top.

Cut and enjoy!
