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 >>]

Cowboy Bark

Cowboy Bark! blog.candiquik.com

Let’s chat about crazy good stuff that is also somewhat addicting. Such as this bark. Sometimes I think simple is the way to go! I’ll be honest, I saw a recipe for Cowboy-something the other day and I didn’t even realize that it was actually a thing. Of course…inspired from the Cowboy Bark that is sold [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 Stout {Guinness} Cake Truffles

Chocolate Stout {Guiness} Cake Truffles |

Chocolate Stout Cake Truffles (or Beer Balls if you ask the guys at work). If this doesn’t scream of a man-dessert, not sure what will.

Turtle Cheesecake Shooters

It also meant, me, stocking up on shot glasses. The store clerk probably thought I was ready for a boozy night of fun. But in reality…she [Read more >>]

Barbell Cookies

Chocolate Barbell Cookies for Olympic Party

I know what you’re thinking right now…that whenever I step foot in a gym and see weights, I think of cookies and chocolate dipped pretzels. Not entirely true… this combination of fudge stripe cookies, pretzel rods, and gummy savers just happen to fit together perfectly. I will admit though, since becoming more involved with food and developing [Read more >>]

Cinnamon Dessert Nachos

fruit-nachos_web1

Need vs. Want. Sometimes I have a hard time decifering between the two. Pinterest doesn’t help. Overall though, I’d like to say I’m fairly practical. I usually stick to what I need – like these nachos. I need. You need these too. Incase you need justification: Cinco De Mayo is right around the corner… Speaking [Read more >>]

Golden Lemon Truffles
