Tj Jensen and I plan to take to the beach this summer reading from our TBR list as we lounge on the shores of Paradise Lake. Included on our reading menu will be my newest beach read, Beaches in Paradise. While a snack bag is a summertime must for any beach day, my favorite dessert is actually a dessert that doesn’t do well at the beach, but is a perfect treat after you get home. I call this yummy summertime treat Fudge Sundae Pie. Enjoy the recipe below.

Fudge Sundae Pie
Crust:
¼ cup light corn syrup
2 tbs. brown sugar
3 tbs. butter
2½ cups Rice Krispies cereal

Combine corn syrup, brown sugar, and butter in saucepan. Cook over medium heat until it boils. Pour over Rice Krispies. Stir together and then press into buttered pie plate.

Topping:
½ cup peanut butter
½ cup chocolate fudge sauce such as Hershey’s syrup
3 tbs. corn syrup

(Note: I often make extra topping and pile it on thick. It’s up to you.)

Mix together and spread on piecrust. Layer in softened ice cream. I use vanilla, but coffee or chocolate works as well. Top with Hershey’s syrup.

Freeze for 23 hours.






Tj Jensen’s life is thrown into turmoil when a good friend turns up missing after a serious auto accident. Not only is the driver of the vehicle, Gina Roberts, nowhere to be found, but she’s the prime suspect in the murder of her passenger, Striker Bristow.

He didn’t die from injuries relating to the accident. He was shot in the back.

With Roy out of town and Kate running the show, Tj finds herself again excluded from the official investigation. She knows it would be wise not to anger the new deputy, who seems to be looking for a reason to have her arrested, but Tj knows that time is of the essence and the stakes are high.

She enlists the help of her friends to accomplish the impossible and find the woman who seems to have simply disappeared.

  7. I don't often snack when reading, but my favorite is potato chips. It is an awful kind of indulgence in salty, crispy, nibbling that is wickedly satisfying to me.

  8. It depends on whether I'm in a sweet or salt mood - ice cream or potato chips. But, if I'm trying to be good, I'll nibble on granola with fruit and salted nuts which covers both.

  12. To be quite honest. We'll snack on whatever is in the fridge. We've also been known to just grab the jar of peanut butter and a tablespoon and dig in. We are trying very hard to break that habit. LOL
