Cactus Pretzels & Cinco de Mayo Strawberries

Cactus Pretzels (perfect for Cinco de Mayo) |

Can I just say, I love chocolate dipped pretzels. Tiny twists, rods, dipping sticks, old fashioned… I’m not picky. Plus, there are soo many ways to dress them up; from bunnies to cactuses. 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

Orange Creamsicle Cake Bites |

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 >>]

Strawberry Lemon Truffle Cake

Strawberry Lemon Truffle Cakes | Miss CandiQuik

Strawberry cake, golden oreos, lemon zest, cream cheese, and vanilla candiquik. In that order. Oh yes. This recipe was inspired by Courtney from Pizzazzerie. She created the infamous Red Velvet Oreo Truffle Bars. Hubba hubba. So I played off of hers and made a Spring/Summer version. Or a version for anyone who isn’t a huge [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 >>]

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 >>]

Baby Cake Pops

Baby Cake Pops | Miss CandiQuik

Every once in a while there is a treat that never quite makes it on the blog. I know, weird, huh!? Usually because I don’t really care for them, they were a complete flop, or I make them way ahead of time and never get around to sharing. I’m not quite sure why these never [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 >>]
