Joy of Desserts' Monday, Mmm...Dessert Recipe Linky Party

It's Joy of Desserts time. Time to link up your delicious dessert recipes.

Please remember common blog courtesy. Link to your post, not your blog so that readers can find your recipe even weeks and months from now. I link to you in my post, so please link to me in your post too. Enjoy visiting each other and discovering new blogs. This is what a linky party is all about.

This week's featured recipes include none other than Harry Potter's Butterbeers shared by Cares of From Which Things Grow.  There's a child-friendly version for Harry's, Hermione's and Ron's children.  And there's a grownup version for all the Hogwart graduates.  I'm sure we'll be serving the kid-friendly version at an upcoming party because our son and his friends love all the Harry Potter movies and books.  All the parents do too.  We even all went to see Deathly Hallows on the first showing of opening day.  So much fun.

Next up, brownies kicked up a notch with coconut to make Samoa Brownies from the Elis Sisters at Six Sisters' Stuff.  If you love triffles, you'll love this one even more, because it's made with strawberry shortbread.  This Strawberry Shortbread Triffle was shared by Lisa at Flour me with Love.  There are lots of chocolate lovers out there and I'm also featuring a Fruit and Nut Chocolate Loaf from Annika at All The Live Long Day, and a Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcake from Kristen at The Sweet Swipper.

  4. Mmmm Samoa Brownies! Sounds like something I need to try...

  5. Hi Joy! Happy Monday and thanks for featuring our Butterbeer recipes! Did you love watching Harry Potter? We went yesterday and I thought it was amazing - I can't believe it's the end :( -Cares

  6. Hi Joy,
    This is my first time linking to your sweet party and I am happily following too!
    Thank you for hosting and have a great day!

  7. Thanks for hosting. I've shared an Angel Food Cake. It's worth making just so that you can use the ageing fresh fruits as a topping.

  8. Joy the links look great! Have a super week sweet lady. My dessert this week is pretty and tasty but a real PAIN to make...some are winners others are LOSERS! :)

  9. Thanks for hosting! I just saw your party (thanks to WW) and have added you to my list of food parties, which I'm currently updating - hope to be a regular participant! :-)
