Pumpkin Spice Cake Bites


When it comes to determining the actual start of fall, there are three types of people: the summer-break-is-over-and-school-has-begun folks, team fall-equinox-is-the-official-start-of-the-season, and last but certainly not least we have the pumpkin-spice-latte-is-back-and-so-my-life-is-complete crew. Regardless of which party you belong to, can we all just agree that fall is pretty darn awesome? With fresh school supplies, Halloween, the smell of crunchy leaves, my birthday (please, [Read more >>]

No-Bake Apple Streusel Cheesecake


Memorial Day is only a few days away and you know what that means… summer has officially begun! First and foremost, we must remember those who have served and died for our country. They paid the ultimate price for our freedom. Against the backdrop of barbecues and boating, it’s important to remember what Memorial Day [Read more >>]

Turkey Rice Krispie Pops

Turkey Rice Krispie Pops

I can’t even believe that Thanksgiving is Thursday! (It is just me, or does it seem like time speeds by faster than ever when you’re an adult?!) As a kid, time seemingly crawled through the holiday season. It seemed like the days were longer, stretching time infinitely longer than it should be before Christmas. But [Read more >>]


Dessert Coneucopias

Did any of you guys ever watch Semi-Homemade with Sandra Lee when it was on the Food Network? I was weirdly obsessed with Sandra Lee’s show. One, because her recipes were great — I love that semi-homemade approach to cooking. And two, because her tablescapes were always so stunning. But I had to wonder: WHERE did [Read more >>]

Pecan Pie Truffles

Pecan Pie Truffles

Believe it or not, there was once a time in my life where I disliked pecan pie. (Yeah, it was kind of a dark time.) For some reason, it just didn’t ring my bell the same way Dutch Apple or Banana Cream did. I figured I’d just live out the rest of my days drinking [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 >>]

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.

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 >>]

Cranberry Orange Pecan Bark

Cranberry Orange Pecan Bark - via Miss Candiquik

A lot of times I am asked, “What is the difference between CandiQuik and almond bark, candy melts, wafers, etc.?”. Well, a lot! Truly. Candiquik is naturally flavored with all natural ingredients for one. Dos (as in, # two), Candiquik uses very fine sugar particles – this will come out in the taste. It will not give [Read more >>]

Teepee Cake Bites

Teepee Cake Pops - @candiquik

Tipi, tepee, or teepee? According to Wiki, they’re all correct. I prefer the latter. Anyways, a while back I received a package from My Little Cupcake. You may remember when I showed off one of the four molds with these Cupcake Cake Pops!? The verdict? Love. Just think of all the possibilities with this cone mold [Read more >>]

Ginger Cookie Truffles


  I love this Ginger Cookie Truffle recipe for several reasons. 1. I have about 9 billion things to do before the holidays and this was the easiest yet. 2. No baking required (I’ve done enough of that!) 3. Easy on the wallet 4. Scrumptious
