sweet treats to make you happy...
Creamy Dreamy Chocolate Mint Fudge
Just a quick relatively wordless Wednesday post. Creamy Dreamy Mint Chocolate Fudge. Three ingredients. Easy. Melt in your mouth. This is the first fudge recipe I learned to make back when I was in high school. It has never failed me.
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles. Seriously? Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough balls dunked in chocolate? Oh my word. Don’t leave me alone with a tray of these bad boys. No worries raw egg police, these no-bake treats are egg-free.
Seven Layer Magic Bars
I struggled with what to call these heavenly bars. I kicked around a few ideas. Pretzel Toffee Bars. Chocolate Coconut Layered Love Bars. Magic Bars. Seven Layer Bars. Toothachers Met Their Match Bars. Truth be told…they are a casserole with a little bit of this and a little bit of that. A dessert casserole. I’m not sure anyone would click on a recipe called dessert casserole.
Carrot Cake Breakfast Bread
Carrot Cake Breakfast Bread served with hot comforting coffee makes ‘unseasonably’ seem novel. Let me talk quickly. We are currently experiencing unseasonably cold temps with wind gusts in the….well below our comfort level. My computer has been off and on again with power outages and server issues.
Game Day Peanut M&M Blondies
Looking for an easy last minute treat to make for the Big Game? Nothing could be easier than Homemade Blondies and customizing them to your team colors is just a bag of M&M’s away. For our GAME DAY Blondies we chose Peanut M&M’s in Green & Blue representing the Seattle Seahawks and Red & Blue for the New England Patriots. May the best team win!!
Pistachio Oatmeal Sandies
I’ve been looking forward to receiving my 2015 cooking magazine subscriptions (I’m changing it up a bit this year). The first to arrive in the mailbox was BON APPETIT with a big banner across the top that read GET HEALTHY IN 2015. Right on!! So I promptly made cookies. Pistachio Oatmeal Cookies.
Carrot Cake Energy Bites
I sent Shelby an innocent birthday text (back on May 28th). It went something like this….what’s your favorite kind of cake? She threw me for a loop with her response.
European Cookie Butter Fudge
Who was my Secret Santa this year? Who stumped me so well that I spent an entire week bragging about my amazing Secret Santa to none other than….my Secret Santa? That would be Bethany. The sneaky lady who made me a batch of this incredible European Cookie Butter Fudge (along with many other fabulous gifts).
Ferrero Rocher Cake
I started a tradition last year where I would ask a friend to select a chocolate recipe, anything they like, that I would then recreate and deliver to them to Share the Love. I call these Adventures in Chocolate. This go around I chose my friend & co-worker Jennica. She actually squealed with excitment and headed straight to my Adventures in Chocolate Pinterest Board where she selected this fabulous Ferrero Rocher Cake recipe by Mom’s Dish.
Coconut Macaroons. Five simple ingredients that will delight an entire office. This I know. I cookie tray tested them on my work family and they passed with flying colors. We will definitely include them in this year’s holiday baking and you should too.
