Currently July 2022 - from the Currently Workbook by Tracy Benjamin of The Handwriting Club

Currently July 2022

I can’t believe Cooper’s summer vacation is almost over!  The Benjamins did some traveling this month. We drove down to Huntington Beach for a week-long baseball tournament and then flew up to Idaho at the end of the month to see our nephew get married and hang out with family. It was nice to get away!  One of the best things about visiting my in-laws is that we get to hang out by their pool and I am never asked to cook so I get a break from cooking and cleaning- A TRUE VACATION indeed. 

This month I drew sunflowers in my Currently Workbook!  I colored them in with my favorite Prismacolor pencils.

Mocha Icebox Cupcakes

Mocha Icebox Cupcakes - layers for mocha whipped cream with chocolate wafers! A great make-ahead dessert for a party! Find the recipe on Shutterbean.com

If you need a showstopper/easy dessert for a party, might I suggest these Mocha Icebox Cupcakes?  I made them this week (not for a party- just for us!) and they were a real hit.

As we know, my child loves anything coffee flavored (see: Mocha Meringues). 

Mocha Icebox Cupcakes - layers for mocha whipped cream with chocolate wafers! A great make-ahead dessert for a party! Find the recipe on Shutterbean.com

Mocha whipped cream is dolloped in between each layer of chocolate wafer cookies and topped with an espresso bean covered in chocolate. With an afternoon stay in the fridge, you have these portable icebox cupcakes!  The whipped cream softens the cookie middles and leaves the edges still kinda crisp. The result? A dessert that tastes close to the coffee oreo ice cream we love!  Except there was no freezer or ice cream maker involved in the process. Hooray for simple, tasty desserts that satisfy the most discerning sweet tooth!
