Easy DIY Halloween Cupcake Toppers

Easy DIY Halloween Cupcake Toppers | @candiquik

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 >>]

Strawberry Ghosts

Strawberry Ghosts @candiquik

Halloween treats are steadily filling my pinterest feed, my bloglovin’ emails and my trips down every aisle in the grocery store. So I figure it’s time! I love these little strawberry ghosts! I originally made these two years ago but never posted them on here. You may have came across them on the Candiquik Recipes [Read more >>]

Cinnamon Cranberry Nut Clusters

{10 minute} Cinnamon Cranberry Nut Clusters | @candiquik

Cinnamon infused candy coating…a must try! I took these simple nut clusters to the next level by adding cinnamon and craisins to the mix. They turned out amazing. There’s not much of a recipe here, just a few simple ingredients thrown together resulting in a slightly addicting treat. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve [Read more >>]

S’more Grahamwiches

S'more Grahamwiches

4th of July…it’s approaching. And all too fast, because apparently MotherNatureMinneapolis can’t seem to get it’s act together. Somedays I feel like I live in Seattle, except for the brief period I was in Austin for the BlogHer Food Conference (more on that later). Enough complaining, because I truly can’t wait until July arrives. That means [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.

Guinness is used in the cake and the frosting. Then everything is combined together to form one pop-able, slightly bitter, chocolately, creamy cake truffle.

40 Sweet Treats Made with Nutter Butter Cookies | Miss CandiQuik

Okay, I’m fairly certain that Nutter Butter’s are the most universal cookie – in the world. Seriously, I’ve seen them used to make everything from reindeer to high heels. Not to mention, they taste dang good dipped in chocolate. I’ve decided to compile all of the ideas that other bloggers, crafters, and I have made [Read more >>]

Another great thing. Modeling chocolate. And yes, you can make modeling chocolate with CandiQuik Coatings. Printable recipe at end of post. So…what [Read more >>]

Orange Creamsicle Cake Bites | blog.candiquik.com

First things first, it’s my 3 year blog anniversary! Holy canoli. I barely knew a thing about blogging when I started Miss CandiQuik. But it’s so much fun and there is a true sense of community in the blogging world. If you’re thinking about starting a blog: do it. Start it and be persistent. Keep [Read more >>]

Mocha Marshmallow Pops


I have a confession. I tried a macaron for the first time, ever. I know, I know. What a terrible baker/dessert blogger I am! The worst part is that when I say I tried one – that’s exactly what I mean. Tried. I was not the baker. Have you ever tried a French macaron? I [Read more >>]

Bunny Bait Snack Mix

Bunny Bait Snack Mix (with printable tag!)

Are you ready for the easiest (yummiest) Easter basket treat ever?! I needed something that was cute, wouldn’t break easy (mailing in packages), could feed an army, and last a few days without losing it’s flavor. This is what I came up with and only takes about 10 minutes to put together. Longer if you’re coming up [Read more >>]
