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 >>]

Pumpkin Spice Pretzel Fudge

Pumpkin Spice Fudge

Happy Pumpkin Spice Latte Season! Or Fall to you and I, assuming you aren’t a die-hard PSL fan like the rest of them. While I love pumpkin, I prefer consuming it by eating it to truly let that pure, unadulterated pumpkin flavor shine. While it’s great with chocolate or caramel, marshmallow or peanut butter, I [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 >>]

Scarecrow Oreo Pops

Fall is, by far, my favorite season. There’s nothing like cuddling up at night and watching a movie by the fire; drinking piping hot, fresh-pressed apple cider; going pumpkin or apple-picking; the homey scents of cinnamon, nutmeg, apple, and clove; the baking that comes along with those same scents; scarves; boots; chunky-knit sweaters… the list is [Read more >>]

Frankenstein Twinkie Pops {And Monster Twinkie Pops!}

So I apologize to anyone in advance, but when it comes to Halloween, I get way too excited and immediately lose all semblance of willpower around bright bags of chocolate candy, pumpkin everything, spooky decor, and Halloween treats. It’s like the second stores break out the pumpkin goodies and plastic bat decorations, my mind kind [Read more >>]

Caramel Apple Oreo Pops

Have you guys seen the new Caramel Apple Oreos yet? They. Are. Life-Changing. For a caramel-apple lover like myself, I could not stop eating these bad boys! They taste exactly like caramel apples in cookie form… a dangerously delicious invention, if you ask me. Besides pumpkin, nothing says ‘fall’ to me more than caramel apples! Every [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 >>]

Ghost Cookies

Easy Ghost Cookies

We’ve all made these adorable little Nutter Butter Ghost Cookies by now, haven’t we?! I cannot even tell you who created these originally, but I know we have been making them for many, many years. Then I realized, I have never shared them on the blog! So for those of you that have not made these [Read more >>]

Easy DIY Halloween Cupcake Toppers

These Halloween Cupcake Toppers were a blast to make. Almost as much fun as eating them. Almost. I think I had the most fun with the kitty cats, adding the little swirls to the tail. They were really easy to make, too. Trust me because I would not be able to draw you a Halloween-y [Read more >>]
