Easy Cookie Cutter Fudge


Hot holiday hint: everyone loves edible gifts. I like baking for people because one can only have so many pairs of slippers or mini bottles of scented lotion, but there really is no such thing as too many desserts. Especially around the holidays, am I right?! Fudge has always been one of my favorite holiday treats [Read more >>]

(Easy/No Bake!) Turtle Cheesecake Dessert Shooters | Miss CandiQuik

Turtle Cheesecake = creamy, smooth, chocolatey, caramely goodness. Turtle Cheecake in a shot glass = see ‘turtle cheesecake’ + New Year’s party(!?) + a totally fun way to serve cheescake. 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 >>]

My Best Recipes of 2011

If you asked me to choose my favorite recipes from 2011, at first I would tell you – no problemo, piece of cake. In fact, it’s not a piece of cake (literally or figuratively, I guess). Its like asking a parent to choose their favorite child. Some are just too cute not to be included. Some too delicious. [Read more >>]
