Sort of a Present

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 ❤ Special Dark.

Homemade chocolate syrup.

Pretty, right? But wait… it’s needs a little something.

There. That’s better.

Are  you a java junkie?

What’s your favorite way to drink/eat it?
