Champagne Cake Pops and Bites

ChampagneCakePops-83w

I’m a complete sucker for Valentine’s Day. It all began way back in Mrs. Goldberg’s kindergarten class when we got to decorate our Valentine’s Day boxes. We covered those babies with so much glitter and stickers they would have made Lisa Frank proud. In addition to working tirelessly to transform plain shoeboxes into something that really represented who you [Read more >>]

Easy Cookie Cutter Fudge

CookieCutterFudge-1b

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?! The thing about gifting desserts, however, is they tend to [Read more >>]

Chocolate-Dipped Strawberry Cookies

Chocolate-Dipped Strawberry Cookies

I absolutely, positively cannot apologize for posting Valentine’s recipes early. For one, it’s my job. The second the Christmas candy goes on clearance and the heart-shaped candies come out, it’s game-on. And secondly, everyone is all rah-rah kale and diets in January. Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to run from the kale and ruin [Read more >>]

Peanut Butter Heart Blossom Cookies

Peanut Butter Heart Blossom Cookies

These cookies, let me tell you. Perfectly soft and chewy! I’d imagine it’s pretty close to being in heaven after letting your teeth sink into that first warm bite of these thick peanut butter cookies. I’ll admit, peanut butter cookies are not always my favorite. I’m more of a oatmeal chocolate chip kinda gal, BUT [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 >>]

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.

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!?)

Personal Vanilla Berry Cream Pies

Personal Vanilla Berry Cream Pie (in mason jars!) from Miss CandiQuik

Ok, maybe these aren’t sooo “personal” sized. Instead, you could grab 2 spoons and share - or not. They’re actually not all that much more than a large piece of pie. You know what, you could probably even freeze these and pull out whenever the time is right. Or bring them to work! Hey, you have to [Read more >>]

(Easy) White Chocolate Raspberry Petit Fours

  Sometimes I have a hard time focusing on one thing for a long period of time. I’ll be writing a blog post and go to check who commented on my last status update. 10 times. I’ll be in the middle of baking cookies and think to myself, “I should really bleach my whites…” I’ll [Read more >>]

Heart Munch

heartmunch_final2

I’ve seen so many cute treats for Valentine’s Day – from cake pops to cookies, to elaborate cakes. But I needed something NOW. Something that I could whip up fast that will stay fresh for at least a couple days and something that will hold up when being shipped in mini flower pots. HUH?! Keep reading, it will all make [Read more >>]
