I’ve been wanting to make chocolate shot glasses for longer than I’d like to admit! I kept tossing different ideas around on how I’d like to make them and then was forced to realize that a silicon mold is the only way to do it without creating a major project for yourself. These were so [...]
I caved. I’ve joined the community of Crock Pot/slow cooker candy makers. I believe Trisha Yearwood was the one to originally publish the “Crock Pot Candy” recipe idea using a slow cooker as the method to melt the chocolates. I adapted the original recipe ever so slightly and also made mine in a smaller crock [...]
These strawberry santa hats are the perfect thing to have sitting on your table (or in your mouth) this week! They are super simple and taste awesome as well. My favorite kind of treat. All you need is Vanilla CandiQuik Candy Coating, mini marshmallows and white pearl sprinkles. Oh, and strawberries of course.

These do that to ya. Caramel Apple Pie Grape Poppers. My life is complete. I’m usually fairly confident that I can resist the treats [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
