My First Pinterest Endeavor...

****UPDATE**** After eating it I found the original recipe (from Pinterest) to be far too sweet for my taste.  Next time I will cut down the sugar to 1/4 cup.  With the Hershey's bar, sugar, sweetened condensed milk, and chocolate chips it was just. too. much.  I like sugar but not to the extent that it kills my tastebuds!  I'd also maybe swap out the chocolate chips or the Hershey's Cookies n' Creme bar for a dark chocolate variety to make it slightly less overpowering.  But you be the judge...

For those of you who haven't yet discovered Pinterest, well, you might want to look into it.  It's an ingenius cataloging system of epic proportions.  You can "pin" just about anything from wool socks to poems to exotic animals- anything that interests you, really.  Many use it for DIY inspiration, kids activity ideas, and my personal fav- recipes.

The day I dove head first into my pinning frenzy I think I tagged about 30 recipes.  Then I went back and deleted about 20.  Then I added another 30.  I can't seem to find a middle ground :) 

The majority of my pins?  Sugar-laden items.  Somehow I always find myself "pinning" late at night when my chocolate cravings seem at their peak.  Bad. Idea.

Thus, I have about a bazillion desserts I'd like to try but hadn't yet found the time to test 'em out.

Until today.

I made the first dessert I ever pinned this afternoon and OH. MY. I can't wait to eat it.  That's right, I haven't actually tried it yet.  Apparently when you make something for a group function it's customary to actually WAIT until that function takes place to eat it.  Who made that rule anyway?

I don't like it.

Oh well, I will just wait and DROOL until then.

What did I make?

This bad boy:

Uh-huh.  Drooling yet?

I want it NOW.  But alas, I will wait.  I guess.

I'll let you know how it tastes.

What about you? 
Have you made any Pinterest recipes yet?
I feel this new social network is the start of something fabulous...
