Chocolate BaNilla Wafer Bites

BaNilla-Bites-11b

Things I accomplished this past Saturday: three naps, eating an unruly amount of these treats, and 20 sit-ups. The 20 sit-ups were out of pure guilt for my previous lack of accomplishments. Between the road trip, being awake at approximately 5 a.m. (or earlier) for the past eight days, and going back to work eight hours after returning [Read more >>]

Pumpkin Dog Biscuits

Today I bring you a different kind of treat. It doesn’t involve cake, frosting, or even cookies. But it’s still decadent and finger paw-lickin’ good - depending on who you ask.

Throwback Thursday – Homemade Butterfingers and Key Lime Pie Cups!

key lime pie cups by Confessions of a Cookbook Queen

1. Throwback [throh-bak] A sudden reminder of the past. This can be brought about by hearing a song from high school, seeing an ex, etc. Similar to a flashback. Mid-Century swimsuits. Retro bra tops. Zigzag and chevron everything. Cropped tops. Plastic/Vinyl shoes (remember jellies!?), throwback sports jerseys…even sodas now(!)…the list goes on. Some things shouldn’t come back. But [Read more >>]

Pinocchio Cake Pops!

Pinocchio Cake Pops by Miss CandiQuik

Isn’t he just so dang cute?! I love his facial expressions. Do young kids even know who Pinocchio is? I sure hope so, otherwise this is going to be a total fail. These would be adorable to have at a birthday party. In fact, I’m going to make sure my kids see every classic Disney movie. Have [Read more >>]

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 >>]

Perfect Peppermint Thumbprints

Perfect Peppermint Thumbprints

If you like mint and/or chocolate, this is it. If you like those little York peppermint patties, this is it. If you don’t (me) like York peppermint patties, this is still it. If you’re looking for an easy after dinner treat… you know it. If you want to make a dessert that requires you to scrub chocolate [Read more >>]

Common Cake Pop Issues & Tutorial

Common Cake Pop Issues and Problems | The Best Cake Pop Tutorial | @candiquik

Have you made cake pops? Were they a complete disaster? Yeah, me too. Seriously. We’ve all burned the heck out of our chocolate, lost a cake ball off the stick, had our perfectly good cake pops crack 5 minutes later and begin leaking weird stuff out everywhere! It’s sooo frustrating! Don’t worry though, it gets better! [Read more >>]

The Club.

ClubCQlogo

I have all of these plum-filled visions in my mind. I’ve been googly eyed over so many recipes lateley! I’m tempted to make all of them. I just can’t decide what to make first. Where am I going with this? Well, my friends. Recently, I have asked a bunch of you to join the Club. I [Read more >>]
