Chocolate Covered Cherries

Chocolate Covered Cherries are a classic sweet treat. These cherries are made with maraschino cherries, a sweet filling and coated in milk chocolate.  Disclaimer: I received free product from Chocoley in exchange for sharing this recipe.

#BakingBloggers: Slow Cooker Reese’s Cake

The theme for July’s #BakingBloggers was baking with small appliances. This is something I am completely unfamiliar with. I know people use their slow cookers and instant pots to make desserts, but I’d never even thought to try it. (Confession: my instant pot has only been used for hard boiled […]

#FilltheCookieJar: Monster Reese’s Pieces Cookie Bars

July’s theme for #FilltheCookieJar is back to school. I swear the kids only got out a few weeks ago and traffic has just started to die down, but there are already back-to-school ads for clothing and school supplies, so I suppose we’re really just right on time to share a […]

#ImprovCooking Challenge: Snickers Cheesecake Bars

November’s ingredients for the Improv Cooking Challenge were nuts and caramel. I thought about that combination for a while, thinking of sticky buns covered in a caramel sauce or a banana nut bread with a caramel drizzle…and then while eating a lone survivor of Halloween candy, it dawned on me […]

Vanilla Peppermint Fudge

One of my favorite things about the holiday season is all things peppermint. I absolutely love the flavor and could very likely subsist on candy canes and other peppermint treats for the duration of the holidays. How can you go wrong with peppermint + fudge + chocolate? You really can’t.  Vanilla Peppermint […]

Apple Cider Caramels

While summer will forever be my favorite season,  I can admit to liking fall because of the influx of apples. With apples comes apple cider which is rather far up there on my list of things I absolutely love. You have pumpkin spice people and then you have me, an […]

Snickers Dip

When my mom invites the family over to come to the pool, I usually make the same things over and over again. I’ll bring a watermelon or make a dip for chips or veggies. Nothing too fancy since there aren’t that many of us (something I have yet to learn […]

Improv Challenge: Who Pudding

The theme for the Improv Challenge this month is red and green. I had thought about making red and green decorated cookies or a red punch with frozen green grapes floating in it or even a fruit salad, but when it came down to it, I wanted to share a […]

Improv Challenge: Paleo Pumpkin Almond Butter Cups

I feel like I was just making my last recipe for the Improv Challenge! Time sure is flying by. The ingredients for this month are chocolate and peanut butter. I usually try to head as far as out of the box as possible when it comes to ingredients, but my […]

Recipe Swap: Peanut Butter Cups

The recipe swap for this month is holiday treats! While you can obviously make cookies or other desserts throughout the year, its just different to me to make them around the holidays. Maybe its being able to look a the pretty decorations or the tree while the cookies are baking […]
