New Years Chocolate Party Hats

New Years Chocolate Party Hats

I’m fairly certain these would look adorable sitting on a dessert platter for your New Year’s Eve party. Although my New Year’s Eve plans have gotten dramatically less exciting every year after age 25, we still like to get together with a few friends and celebrate low-key. This year I’m bringing these NYE chocolate party [Read more >>]

Chocolate Shot Glasses

Chocolate Shot Glasses |

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 silicone mold is the only way to do it without creating a major project for yourself. These were so [Read more >>]

Strawberry Santa Hats

Strawberry Santa Hats - @candiquik

These strawberry santa hats are the perfect thing to have sitting on your table (or in your mouth) this week! They are super simple and taste awesome as well. My favorite kind of treat. All you need is Vanilla CandiQuik Candy Coating, mini marshmallows and white pearl sprinkles. Oh, and strawberries of course. I purchased [Read more >>]

Sugar Plum Gingerbread House

Pink Gingerbread House - by Miss Candiquik

Can I live here in this cute little gingerbread house? It looks peaceful. And pink. Everything in it’s tiny world is just so cute. And I’m pretty sure I could live off of the snow.   Forget using frosting for your gingerbread houses…overrated. Candy coating works much better (and faster). I would also like to take [Read more >>]

Reindeer Macarons

Reindeer Macarons @candiquik

I’ve officially done it. Succesfully. French macarons, people. I have to admit, I was a little frightened that I would screw up something when making macarons for the first time. And I’m not talking about the coconut confection that you may be thinking of. After I read a few tutorials online it seemed like there [Read more >>]

Turkey Pretzels

Turkey Pretzels @candiquik

I just love these little turkey pretzels! These pretty much use the same instructions as my turkey cake pops I made a couple years ago. Only 10x easier and faster. Not that I don’t love cake pops, but you know… Plus, I’m kind of on a make-a-pretzel-for-every-holiday kick, if you haven’t noticed. All you need to [Read more >>]

Chocolate Cherry Shortbread Cookies

Chocolate Cherry Shortbread Cookies with a surprise ingredient that makes these awesome!

I’m a fairly picky cookie person. The dough to chip ratio must not exceed my liking. I can’t stand when there are TOO many chocolate chips in a cookie (yes, this is totally possible). Plus, too fluffy of a cookie is not okay (this happened once when I subbed greek yogurt for half of the [Read more >>]

Harvest Corn Nutter Butters

Harvest Corn Nutter Butters by @candiquik

Cookies are in high competition around here lately. Yesterday we had sugar cookies, Halloween decorated cookies, lemon cookies, lemon cookies with cherry chips, pumpkin cookies, AND these Harvest Corn Cookies in the lunchroom at work. Decisions, decisions. How’s a girl supposed to resist ALL of that?! Impossible. These by far were the cutest of them [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 >>]

Ghost Pretzels


Cute, easy, awesome. Chocolate Covered Ghost Pretzels. Halloween treat solved. Life is busy. You’re busy. I’m busy. Sometimes, I’ll admit, I eat cereal for dinner. Sometimes I’d rather use boxed cake mix (GASP) versus making a cake from scratch. And sometimes I’d rather go out to eat at just the mere thought of scrubbing a [Read more >>]
