Candy Bag Bark

Candy Bag Bark

I really miss the ability to trick-or-treat. Now that I’m an adult, it’s not as socially acceptable anymore … which, if you think about it, is kind of bogus. I mean, I have a job. I pay my bills. I don’t get recess. I want candy, people! I think I’ve earned it, don’t you?! What’s [Read more >>]

Graveyard Chocolate Doughnuts

I really want to take this time to personally thank the person who invented breakfast pastries. Croissants, doughnuts, danishes, muffins, cinnamon rolls, sticky buns, bear claws … thank you. Because without you, breakfast would essentially be eggs and oatmeal. And if breakfast is supposed to be the most important meal of the day, why not [Read more >>]

Witches Hats

For as long as I can remember, I was a HUGE Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen fan. I had all of their VHS tapes of their detective shows and movies, their Barbie dolls, their clothing line, everything. I played those poor VHS tapes until the actual tape was disintegrating from overexposure to singing twin girls. But [Read more >>]

Take 5 Bites

Is it just me, or is miniature food so much cuter and tastier than its larger counterparts? Think about it: petit fours are insanely more adorable than a larger cake.  Brownie bites are petite and sweet compared to a regular hunk of brownie.  And mini cupcakes?  Almost too cute to eat and definitely impossible to [Read more >>]

Half Baked Bites

Brownie-Cookie-Dough-Pop-95b

Okay, if you know anything about me you know that I’m CRAZY about ice cream. And one of my favorite flavors!? Ben & Jerry’s Half Baked. Stuff is ‘mazing. Ice cream has to be one of my favorite go-to desserts. That and a good flourless chocolate torte, warm & chewy chocolate chip cookies, or a freshly [Read more >>]

Strawberry Footballs

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Footballs - blog.candiquik.com

I can’t believe I’m about to admit this, but recently I’ve came to enjoy a football game or two. I’m not the person that must see every play and can’t move from the couch before a commercial appears – but I’m just saying that since I *somewhat* know the rules, it has become slightly more [Read more >>]

Chocolate Shot Glasses

Chocolate Shot Glasses | blog.candiquik.com

I’ve been wanting to make chocolate shot glasses for longer than I’d like to admit! I kept tossing different ideas around on how I’d like to make them and then was forced to realize that a silicon mold is the only way to do it without creating a major project for yourself. These were so [Read more >>]

Crock Pot Candy

Crock Pot Candy - @candiquik

I caved. I’ve joined the community of Crock Pot/slow cooker candy makers. I believe Trisha Yearwood was the one to originally publish the “Crock Pot Candy” recipe idea using a slow cooker as the method to melt the chocolates. I adapted the original recipe ever so slightly and also made mine in a smaller crock [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 >>]

Chocolate Dipped Potato Chips!

Easy Chocolate Dipped Potato Chips - salty, sweet & addicting! @candiquik

It has been scorching hot here the past week. And I love every minute of it. Because come the middle of January (or let’s be realistic…November), those days are long past. I also love these chocolate dipped potato chips. Salty + sweet, we already know those two are a winning combination, so why would it be [Read more >>]
