Brownie Ice Cream Sundae Cupcakes

I made these delicious and super easy Brownie Ice Cream Sundae Cupcakes a few weeks ago.  You will be amazed and how simple they are to make, and your family will love them.

Brownie Ice Cream Sundae Cupcakes


Brownie Mix (and ingredients to make them from box)
Ice cream of you choice
chocolate sauce


Preheat oven according to directions on the package and put 24 muffin liners in muffin pans and spray with non stick cooking spray

Mix brownies according to the directions on the package. 

Put approximately 2 TB brownie mixture into each muffin cup.  It should fill muffin cup about 1 inch.

Bake brownies for 8 to 10 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Remove brownies from muffin pan and let cook on a rack. 

One the brownies have completely cooled, add a scoop of ice cream to each muffin cup.

Drizzle chocolate sauce over each muffin cup and put in a tray in your freezer.

This was so easy and so good.  Everyone loved them, and so did I.  I hope you like them also.

Waking Up In Heaven - Book Review

Today, I am reviewing Waking Up In Heaven by Crystal McVea.  My friend Karen had suggested a few books for me to read last week and this was one of them.  Crystal McVea's autobiography is one of the most beautiful stories that I have read in a long time.  Her description of Heaven is so beautiful, and her life story is a story of how beautiful God's Grace truly is in our lives.  

Here is the editor's summary of the book:

On December 10, 2009, Crystal McVea, a thirty-two-year-old mother of four, stopped breathing. Her face turned a dark shade of blue, then black. Her mother screamed for help, and a nurse tried to revive her . . . to no avail. Today, Crystal does not remember what happened in that hospital room during the nine minutes she was unconscious and unable to breathe on her own. She has no memory of the panic and the rushing nurses and the loud cries of “Code Blue.” She simply remembers drifting off. 

And she remembers waking up in heaven. For most of Crystal’s broken life, she felt utterly beyond the reach of God— if God was even real. Then came December 10—and the nine minutes that changed everything. Waking Up in Heaven invites readers along on a journey to witness the relentless pursuit of God in a life that was shattered and seemingly beyond hope, an awe-inspiring account of love, forgiveness, and redemption, and the healing power of God’s presence. 

And that is why I want to share my story with the world. Because I was a skeptic and a sinner, and I didn’t believe in God or in heaven. But God is real. Heaven is real. And God’s love for us is the realest thing of all.

I have really enjoyed reading this book, and I hope you take a chance and read it also.  It's a really fast read.  I read it in just a few days, but I know Karen and her sister read it in a night.

Have a Blessed Day.
