Peanut Butter Stuffed Pretzel Bites

Peanut Butter Stuffed Pretzel Bites | @candiquik

THESE little things…please, do not pass them up. The gals behind the blogs Shugary Sweets and Sally’s Baking Addiction are a couple other places that you will find different versions of these delicious little things. Let’s just say that even in the presense of my dessert-immune co-workers, these puppies did not stand a chance. {After the photos} They disappeared in approximately [Read more >>]

Grape Poppers

Grape Poppers - recipe by @candiquik

Awkward moments. Life is filled with them. This seems especially true in my life. Maybe it’s me… It’s Thursday afternoon, I’m stuck in traffic. I tend to look at every car around me. I like to see what other people are doing/not doing. (I think it’s me.) Did I mention I’m a fairly nosy person? [Read more >>]

Banana Cereal Pops


The storms this past week in Minnesota were disastrous. Thousands of people went days without power. Days! We’ve all lost electricity but going five days without something that we rely so heavily on is a different story. Trees falling on houses, cars… Just imagine – no air conditioning, complete darkness, no appliances, no microwave, no [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 >>]

Chocolate Caramel Swirl Cracker Candy

Chocolate Caramel Cracker Candy

Let’s talk. You and I… I, like most of you, feel like I am always running, rushing, in a hurry to get somewhere, to do something. Whether it’s rushing to work or trying to beat traffic, trying to get to the gym after work. Not to mention trying to get a parking spot at the gym, ugh. Then rushing [Read more >>]

Skinny Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cheesecake

Skinny Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cheesecake (that actually tastes good)

  Ok, I want to chat about those energy/health bars. You know the ones, they are sold next to the vitamins in most grocery stores… I’ve tried several different brands of them. Several different flavors. Nada. I was truly excited the first time I tried one. Chewy chocolate fudge brownie - YES, please! Dark Chocolate Peanut [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 >>]

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. For one, CandiQuik is naturally flavored with all natural ingredients. Dos (as in, # two), Candiquik uses very fine sugar particles – this will come out in the taste and mouth [Read more >>]

Thin Mints

Girl Scout Thin Mint Cookie Recipe {Super Easy!} @candiquik

The perfect combination of chocolate, mint, and *crunch*. These are very reminiscent of the Girl Scout cookies we all know as Thin Mints. Those dang Girl Scout cookies that you can’t set down until they’re gone…then the sugar guilt kicks in. I saw this recipe around 10 a.m. and by noon I had 50 little cookies of my own. [Read more >>]
