Vanilla Dipped Blueberries

Vanilla Dipped Blueberries - the perfect light snack!

This summer has been c-r-a-z-y. A good type of crazy though – besides the fact that it’s slipping by all too fast! Isn’t that always the case?

Orange-Creamsicle-Puppy-Chow-19b

As I’m writing this post, I’m seriously wishing I still had a bowl of this puppy chow in my kitchen. But I don’t. Pretty sure I ate the entire batch with the help of a lot of friends (ok, two.) in a matter of minutes. I found myself digging through the bowl looking for the [Read more >>]

I was scrolling through my Google + feed the other day and realized I completely *almost* forgot to share these with you! I made them over a year ago after seeing them online and not getting around to making them until after Easter. So I made them, took photos and told myself I’ll remember to [Read more >>]

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 >>]

I’ve been wanting to make chocolate shot glasses for longer than I’d like to admit!

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 >>]

All you need is Vanilla CandiQuik Candy Coating, mini marshmallows and white pearl sprinkles. Oh, and strawberries of course.

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.
