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.

Salty + sweet, we already know those two are a winning combination, so why would it be[Read More...]

S’more Grahamwiches

S'more Grahamwiches

4th of July…it’s approaching. And all too fast, because apparently MotherNatureMinneapolis can’t seem to get it’s act together. Somedays I feel like I live in Seattle, except for the brief period I was in Austin for the BlogHer Food Conference (more on that later).

New Year’s Clock Cookies

New Year's Clock Cookies - Chocolate-Peppermint Creme Cookies! @candiquik

New Year’s Eve…a perfect time to indulge and eat these rich cookies filled with a peppermint buttercream frosting…dipped in chocolate. They are as good as they sound. Better, in fact. I’ve used this recipe on several occasions, and just altered the shapes of my cookies. I even had a stranger tell me she would buy my flowers and[Read More...]

Thin Mints.

Girl Scout Thin Mint Cookie Recipe {Super Easy!} @candiquik

The perfect combination of chocolate, mint, and *crunch*. These are very reminiscent of the Girl Scout cookies we all know as Thin Mints. Those dang Girl Scout cookies that you can’t set down until they’re gone…then the sugar guilt kicks in. I saw this recipe around 10 a.m. and by noon I had 50 little cookies of my own.[Read More...]
