Mocha Marshmallow Pops

I have a confession. I tried a macaron for the first time, ever. I know, I know. What a terrible baker/dessert blogger I am! The worst part is that when I say I tried one – that’s exactly what I mean. Tried. I was not the baker. Have you ever tried a French macaron? I [Read more >>]

Bunny Bait Snack Mix

Are you ready for the easiest (yummiest) Easter basket treat ever?! I needed something that was cute, wouldn’t break easy (mailing in packages), could feed an army, and last a few days without losing it’s flavor. This is what I came up with and only takes about 10 minutes to put together. Longer if you’re coming up [Read more >>]

Pretzel Twist Easter Chicks | Miss CandiQuik

The first time I saw these over at Stop Lookin’ Get Cookin’s blog, I almost died from the cuteness. Why did I never think of turning pretzel twists into cute little chicks (or are they ducklings?)!? I thought of making bunnies out of pretzel RODS, but making little critters out of the twists – nope. [Read more >>]

Bunny Pretzels & Easter Extravaganza

Bunny Pretzels | Miss CandiQuik

It’s almost Spring. I have to keep telling myself that. Because currently, outside my window all I see is a flurry of snowflakes whipping through the air. But this is the last of it…or at least that’s what ‘they’ keep saying. If you live in a state where you have four distinct seasons, you hear [Read more >>]

{Chow Mein} Easter Nests

Easter (Chow Mein) Nests

What happened? It’s March. Which means St. Patrick’s Day. And Easter this year too! I must say, I love the bright colors that we associate with Easter, it means warm weather is *slowly* approaching.

Homemade *Shamrock* Marshmallows

homemade marshmallows step 4

So, it happens to be that it is cold outside. Surprise, surprise Minnesota. What does that have to do with anything? Well, I’m glad you asked, because I couldn’t find a dang candy thermometer in the kitchen to save my life. Nor did I really want to go out into the cold to buy a new one. (I’m officially talking [Read more >>]

Chocolate Caramel Swirl Cracker Candy

Chocolate Caramel Cracker Candy

Let’s talk. You and I… I, like most of you, feel like I am always running, rushing, in a hurry to get somewhere, to do something. Whether it’s rushing to work or trying to beat traffic, trying to get to the gym after work. Not to mention trying to get a parking spot at the gym, ugh. Then rushing [Read more >>]

She was the original one who made THESE melting [Read more >>]

Vanilla Biscoff Swirl Fudge

{3 Ingredient} White Biscoff Fudge by Miss Candiquik

Let’s talk fudge…and Biscoff. Please tell me you’ve had Biscoff, at least the cookies? Those delicious little cookies that Delta hands out… Well, they make a spread.  I don’t even know how to explain it, besides that it is this sweet, creamy spread that tastes just like the cookies. Apparently it is a European alternative to peanut [Read more >>]
