(Subtitle: The post where I talk about a really unhealthy desert and then randomly segue into giving away pounds of coffee)
I realized I should stop calling my blog a quase food blog and just call it a running, life, and baking blog. Because pretty much all of my recipes are desserts. And that’s how it should be.
Yesterday I posted about Funfetti Cake Cookies and today I’m still on a Pillsbury kick apparently. Normally I go for unprocessed everything but I figured I’d knock these two out of the park together.
The following recipe is very near and dear to me and came via my beautiful friend Tiffany. It has four ingredients, is awesome to bring to parties, and as Tiffany warned, it may cause “excessive subconscious eating.” You’ve been warned.
Crack Bread Recipe
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup vanilla ice cream
- ½ cup butter
- 1 tube Pillsbury biscuits (the original—not the flaky layers or super butter tasting kinds)
Melt the brown sugar, ice cream, and butter in a saucepan until it becomes uniform in color and consistency.
Pour into a baking dish (disposable ones work great if you’re bringing it to a party, like I have been)
Put the biscuits into the caramel mixture, cut into little triangles.
Bake at 350 degrees until golden brown (12-15 minutes).
Enjoy. Preferably hot and with ice cream.
Obviously NOTHING about this is healthy but it takes minutes to make and is a guaranteed crowd pleaser. Try it one day when you’re feeling lazy and thank me later. It seriously melts in your mouth. #twss
In other news… I have a bunch of coffee to give away. Godiva sponsored the Foodbuzz Festival so for a few weeks I’ve had a bunch of coffee sitting around my apartment, but I just don’t drink it. I like the ritual of coffee, but I’d rather have hot chocolate (way better for you, I may add… not) and coffee just isn’t a part of my life because caffeine does not affect me in any tangible way, so I usually just drink tea instead.
However, I know there are a lot of coffee lovers out there so for Christmas, I am giving away the following Godiva products:
- 12 oz Chocolate Truffle ground coffee
- 12 oz Hazelnut Crème ground coffee
- Small bags of French Vanilla, Pumpkin Spice, and Peppermint Mocha coffees
- Godiva chocolates
- Godiva apron (I have one of these and use it all the time!

If you tweet a link to the coffee giveaway and tag me (@CourtPancakes) it’s an extra entry—just leave another comment and tell me you tweeted.
I’ll leave the Christmas giveaway open til Christmas and then pick a winner via Random.org.
Thank you in advance for getting these pounds of coffee off my hands. It’s almost Christmas! WOO HOO!
