Easy Father’s Day Treats!

Untitled design

Don’t forget about Father’s Day on Sunday! Dads, grandfathers, and father figures all deserve to know how much we appreciate them and everything they have taught us. My dad has educated me well on the finer things in life such as fishing, old cars, Pete Townshend, and cheese (he’s from Wisconsin). Thanks, Dad! Since we can have more than [Read more >>]

Honey Thyme Truffles

cb_HoneyThymeTruffles-47b

There’s no doubt about it, farmers markets are one of the best parts of summer! I love nothing more than an early morning trip to the market with my coffee in hand. Remember how much I love coffee? Anyway, back to the market… There’s just something about all the colors, sounds, and smells that makes for the [Read more >>]

Cinco de Mayo Mexican Spice Truffles

cb_MexicanSpiceTruffles-45b

I’m a huge fan of mixing sweet and heat and these Mexican Spice Truffles are indisputably one of my favorite recipes! It only seems appropriate that I share this with you on Cinco de Mayo. You’ll find yourself torn between eating the whole truffle in one bite, and making them last as long as possible. I think the latter is what [Read more >>]

Pecan Pie Truffles

Pecan Pie Truffles

Believe it or not, there was once a time in my life where I disliked pecan pie. (Yeah, it was kind of a dark time.) For some reason, it just didn’t ring my bell the same way Dutch Apple or Banana Cream did. I figured I’d just live out the rest of my days drinking [Read more >>]

Coconut Oat Chip Bites

Coconut Oat Chip Bites - Miss Candiquik

  These Coconut Oat Chip Bites had every intention of being one of those supah-healthy treats like these Black Bean Truffles. However, I could not resist adding sweetened condensed milk to help hold these puppies together. So while they aren’t too naughty, I wasn’t sure whether to classify them as a health food. Of course, my [Read more >>]

Chocolate Bacon Truffles

Chocolate Truffles topped with BACON! @candiquik

Take a deep breath, bacon fanatics. This just happened. Diced bacon atop chocolate peanut butter truffles. And it happened very well. Trust me on this one. There were a couple special ingredients that I believe made these truffles extra awesome.

Gluten Free Chickpea Cookie Dough Bites

You are going to love these Gluten Free Chickpea (aka Garbanzo beans) Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Truffles. They taste like a very mild peanut butter truffle, healthified. You will NOT find any flour or butter used in these bites. You will find protein, zinc, and folate from the chickpeas. Yeah, you’re welcome. Now before you [Read more >>]

Black Bean Truffles

Healthy Black Bean Truffles - trust me, they're awesome! @candiquik

Do you like chocolate? If you’re here, the answer is probably yes. If not, you’re most likely lost. You may or may not have seen black beans popping up in dessert recipes such as brownies and truffles.  To be honest, I have always been curious and intrigued about black bean dessert recipes but never took the plunge. Until [Read more >>]

Ginger Cookie Truffles

  I love this Ginger Cookie Truffle recipe for several reasons. 1. I have about 9 billion things to do before the holidays and this was the easiest yet. 2. No baking required (I’ve done enough of that!) 3. Easy on the wallet 4. Scrumptious

Golden Lemon Truffles

  I was thinking of memories I have from growing up…simple memories. Memories I love looking back on. Things such as:

Lemon-Raspberry Cheesecake POPS

I just hopped on the Cheesecake Pop bandwagon. We’re headed to Awesomeville. Don’t miss it – get on this! A.S.A.P. No oven required. Perfect-o for the upcoming summer months…  I think we’re still getting Spring and then Summer in Minnesota. I mean … it came last year (!?) And the year before that. It’s bound to show up this year too, [Read more >>]
