Lil Duckling Pretzel Twists

Pretzel Twist Easter Chicks | Miss CandiQuik

The first time I saw these over at Stop Lookin’ Get Cookin’s blog, I almost died from the cuteness. Why did I never think of turning pretzel twists into cute little chicks (or are they ducklings?)!? I thought of making bunnies out of pretzel RODS, but making little critters out of the twists – nope. [Read more >>]

Peeping PEEPS

Peeping Peeps in Chocolate Eggs | Miss CandiQuik

Well hello there! What better way to eat a Peep than in a chocolate Easter egg? Two weeks ago I bought about five dozen peeps. Pink ones, purple ones, yellow ones, blue ones, limited edition ones(!)… all in attempt to making something fun and creative for the Peeps Hop Along Party. Something more than just [Read more >>]

Bunny Pretzels & Easter Extravaganza

Bunny Pretzels | Miss CandiQuik

It’s almost Spring. I have to keep telling myself that. Because currently, outside my window all I see is a flurry of snowflakes whipping through the air. But this is the last of it…or at least that’s what ‘they’ keep saying. If you live in a state where you have four distinct seasons, you hear [Read more >>]

{Chow Mein} Easter Nests

Easter (Chow Mein) Nests

What happened? It’s March. Which means St. Patrick’s Day. And Easter this year too! I must say, I love the bright colors that we associate with Easter, it means warm weather is *slowly* approaching. Can you tell how much I love winter? If you’ve been reading this blog for any length of time you’ve probably [Read more >>]

Homemade *Shamrock* Marshmallows

homemade marshmallows step 4

So, it happens to be that it is cold outside. Surprise, surprise Minnesota. What does that have to do with anything? Well, I’m glad you asked, because I couldn’t find a dang candy thermometer in the kitchen to save my life. Nor did I really want to go out into the cold to buy a new one. (I’m officially talking [Read more >>]

Valentine Surprise Cookies

Valentine Surprise Cookies @candiquik

  This is how my Wednesday started: I was deep in thought during my morning commute drive. Deep in thoughts filled of cookies and Valentine’s day. (Wouldn’t the world would be a little more peaceful if more people shared my thoughts!?) Originally I thought of making chocolate dipped graham crackers, somehow incorporating a surprise , then making them [Read more >>]

Cinnamon Raisin Energy Bites

Cinnamon Raisin Energy Bites - @candiquik

No bake cookie. Energy bite. Call it what you wanna call it. These ‘bites’ are dang good. They kinda make you forget that they have NO oil, NO butter, NO anything super bad for ya. After all, a little sugar never hurt anyone. Hence, energy bite. Peanut butter, oats, a few raisins and a couple [Read more >>]

Turtle Cheesecake Shooters

(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 >>]

Snowmen Cookies

Snowmen Cookies - @candiquik

 It’s been a while since I’ve made these…and then I realized, even though you may have seen them before, I’ve never blogged about them. Plus, I’ve made a couple changes to the originals. It all started when I found (orange!) candy-coated sunflower seeds at Tj-Maxx/HomeGoods. Immediately I thought – noses, as carrots for snowmen! Just [Read more >>]

Vanilla Biscoff Swirl Fudge

{3 Ingredient} White Biscoff Fudge by Miss Candiquik

Let’s talk fudge…and Biscoff. Please tell me you’ve had Biscoff, at least the cookies? Those delicious little cookies that Delta hands out… Well, they make a spread.  I don’t even know how to explain it, besides that it is this sweet, creamy spread that tastes just like the cookies. Apparently it is a European alternative to peanut [Read more >>]
