It’s National Junk Food Day- Lori’s 5 Favorite Junk Foods
Who doesn't love junk food. It is the comfort food of life. So in honor of National Junk Food Day which is today. Here are my 5 favorite junk foods.
Peanut Butter and Hot Fudge Sundae
You cannot go wrong with ice cream. But peanut butter ice cream or just plain vanilla ice cream topped with hot fudge, peanut butter sauce and whipped cream, and maybe a cherry. YUM! I love to make my own or head on over to Braum's.
I love Starburst Jelly Beans. They taste better than Starbursts! The thing with this junk food indulgence is if I open a bag, I will eat the whole bag. They are just that good.
Whoever thought about dipping a pickle in batter and frying it needs to receive an award because fried pickles are the best junk food! Whether they are just the sliced pickles fried up or the entire spear dipped and fried, they are soooo delicious. Dip them in homemade ranch and you are in food heaven. For a crazy delicious twist, buffalo them!
Better Than Sex Cake
LOVE LOVE LOVE this cake. It is an indulgent treat and it is the definition of junk food. It is real easy to make.
1 box chocolate cake mix (I use Devils Food)
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 jar caramel topping
1 tub whipped topping 1 bag of toffee chips or 3 crushed Heath Bars/Skor Bars or your favorite toffee candy bar.
Follow the directions on the cake mix to make the cake. Poke holes in the cake while it is still hot right out of the oven (I use the end of a wooden spoon). Pour the can of condensed milk over the cake and then pour the caramel over the cake (save about 2 T. for garnish). Let the cake cool. Top the cake with whipped topping (like icing) then cover the whipped topping with the toffee chips and drizzle remaining caramel over the top.
Yum...it's best eaten with a spoon and a big ol glass of milk.
Chocolate Chip Cookies
A Cookie a day keeps, the blues away. I love chocolate chip cookies. Not just any chocolate chip cookie, but the big giant chocolate chip cookies that just ooze chocolate chips. They are the best junk food in the world. You cannot eat just one. Plus, a chocolate cookie is not a perfect chocolate chip cookie with out a very tall glass of milk.
