As exhausted as I feel, I am still feeling the bliss of returning from The Big Traveling Potluck this weekend in Temecula. This was different from any other blogging event I have experienced. I have so much to tell you guys, but that’s for a future post!

Today is my Dad’s B I R T H D A Y. He’s turning 40; he wishes. HA sorry Dad. Last year I made a version of an ice cream cake, which is the staple birthday cake in our house. He told me that he wanted to be able to make a smaller version since he is obviously the only one home to eat it. So I sent him some 6” pans to try out. Sure enough he texted me last night to tell me he was making his annual ice cream cake.

Five fun facts about my dad.

1. He is the reason I know how to snowboard (and ski for that matter), how to fish, how to play soccer, baseball and basketball. Almost of of which he still does himself.

2. He used to fight forest fires, and how he still goes out on duty to work with the public in effected areas.

3. His Zucchini bread recipe can be found here.

4. The first time he met my boyfriend, he told me he liked him because he drove a Ford and owned a drill.

5. His Christmas/ birthday list always includes mostly practical items like bird seed, socks and printer toner.

Since I was away all weekend, I didn’t have time to make him a cake this year. Instead, I made Funfetti Cookie Dough Truffle Bars. It’s kind of like a birthday cake in that it can be sliced, it has chocolate and sprinkles, and I don’t want to share it. That’s right, I want it all to myself.

I have a thing for sprinkles. They just make everything so much more fun. Oh, and cookie dough, I mean you can’t go wrong with cookie dough, right? So the glorious thing about these bars is, it’s just like a cookie dough truffle but without all the work. There is no rolling the dough, or chilling it. There is no dropping the cookie dough balls in a bowl of melted chocolate and making your kitchen a disaster. Just press the dough in a pan, pour the chocolate over top and let it set.

Seriously, there are so many flavor varieties you can do with this. I don’t know about you, but whenever I can save myself some time and mess, I am a happy camper.

      HAHA! Oh man, it was tough to narrow it down to just 5 of his odd-ball ways. Can’t wait to see you!

    How fun! Your dad sounds a lot like mine!! Ha – these bars sound like a perfect birthday treat!

  2. says

    Beautiful bars and definitely befitting a birthday celebration. Happy birthday to your dad! #5 is such a typical dad thing. My dad actually hates getting gifts from me ‘n my sisters. He always yells at us for wasting money.

    • Beyond Frosting says

      Thank you Nancy! I swear he saves his Christmas and birthday lists and just copies and paste them. When he finally go new sheets I was relieved not to see it on the list! HAHA

    Lol! You’re dad sounds awesome! I have been known to judge men by whether or not they own a drill, so he and I have that in common ;-)

    When I saw these bars on IG the other day, I about freaking fell off my chair! I mean seriously, could they be any more chewy and soft? No! They look perfect! And the chocolate on top…oh Lord help me!

    • Beyond Frosting says

      HAHA! That is too funny! Don’t tell anyone my boyfriend doesn’t really use his drill, but he has it! LOL
